Back in the seventies, a young fan could immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe 24 hours a day. Playing with toys, studying with Star Wars school supplies, eating from Star Wars dishes, and even sleeping in Star Wars bedding. And if they were invited to a sleepover, what better way to show their fandom than by sleeping in a Star Wars sleeping bag?

There were about a dozen designs of slumber bags made in the vintage era in both the US and abroad. From the first Star Wars, to Empire and Jedi, a kid had many character schemes to choose from.

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.
