Perhaps among the most familiar lines of toys is the vintage Kenner Star Wars toys associated with the original Star Wars trilogy (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) from 1977 - 1985.
These figures vary in size based on the character's sizes in the films, but the typical figure size is 3 3/4 inches.
Variations and accessories a-plenty await those who are interested (or already are knee-deep) into collecting this highly-collectable and valuable line of action figures.
Some terms you'll need to familiarize yourself with:
"12-Back/20-21 Back/32-Back" (Refers to the number of figures featured on the back of the package marketed for release at the time of production.)
"Double-Telescoping" (A Lightsaber accessory can be found in characters Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi, that extends twice with a thinner piece of plastic already outwards of the hand.)
"Plastic/Cloth" (Accessories included with a figure made of said material. An example would be a Jawa figure with a plastic cape as opposed to a Cloth cape.)
"Offers" (Refer to a promotion on package that sometimes appears and sometimes doesn't, such as the mail-away offer for Boba Fett.)
"Mailer Bag" (Star Wars figures that were available through redemption from Kenner often came sealed in clear plastic mailer bags.)
"Tri-Logo" (Refers to an international released figure that boasts 3 different Star Wars logos in different languages on the front of the packaging.)
COLLECTOR'S NOTE: There are many online, media and print resources for Star Wars Action Figure Collectables such as the Vintage Action Figure Line, however, many catalog variations differently. This bio includes many common terms found in most resources.
