Kenner's Original Collection was made available pretty much all over the world through distribution partnerships with other toymakers. The first company to distribute the toys in Japan was Takara, and their product line differed from their US counterpart in many ways, making a collection pretty unique. Despite all the products created specifically for their market place, Takara did release some Kenner products including two of the Large Size Action Figures: Luke and Leia. Both were hard to find before the Tsunami, and now they may be significantly to locate, so it is worth mentioning the Takara Princess Leia Organa Large Size Action Figure currently up for auction.

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.
