Originally produced for Japanese consumers, the infamous Takara Walking Wind-Up R2-D2 was sold in a little baggie before Kenner Canada made a small quantity available to Canadian consumers. Like most Canadian Star Wars items released through 1978-1985, it had its own sense of style, and was packaged on a blister card. To find one still sealed on the card is tough. To find one this nice is the thing of legends. Follow this link to have a look at this great piece!

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.
