It was a dark time for Star Wars toys. With toy companies battling for ultimate power in the universe, could a simple coin bring balance to The Force and inject excitement into a waning toy line?

In Coining a Galaxy, James Gallo & Mark Salotti explore the phenomenon of Kenner's Vintage POWER OF THE FORCE, DROIDS & EWOKS Star Wars Collector Coins...from their concept and creation to their circulation and their untimely cancellation!

Beautifully designed by Jeff Correll and spanning 82 pages, Coining a Galaxy includes a gallery depicting every known Kenner Star Wars Collector Coin, classified according to rarity, with pre-production and unreleased coins, text outlines and a checklist with price guide.

It will be available for $19.99 at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida from August the 23rd to the 26th at booth 1221 and then available for online purchase at: www.coiningagalaxy.com

With a limited edition of only 500 books in the galaxy, get yours before there's a bounty.

There's never been anything like it.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
