As an important point of reference let's look at the winning bid price for the Kenner Employee Retirement Ring auction. This piece, which may not have seemed too important to many collectors, just sold for $1,500 in an open bid auction. Despite my efforts I was outbid, but it is equally interesting and reassuring to see the value some collectors place on Kenner's vision of Star Wars and maybe it is time for the community to demand current licensees to fully appreciate, respect and emulate the Kenner era and how it has served as the bedrock upon which all we have now was built.

I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
