The early 1980’s was the “Golden Age” when it came to Star Wars toys. With the original trilogy of films came a slew of action figures, ships, playsets, and pretty much anything else on which the studio could slap a logo. We children of the seventies and eighties certainly weren’t complaining. Some of us are lucky enough to even still possess some of our now vintage Star Wars toys.
They new toys, pictured above, are cool, don’t get me wrong. But there is just something nostalgic about the vintage Star Wars toys. By today’s standards the toys themselves are subpar. They’re inarticulate, inaccurate, and far from indestructible. Nevertheless people still crave that nostalgia. They crave it so much that Hasbro has entire lines of new toys, either bringing back classic characters, or packaged in the old, vintage style. Today we’ll take a look back at some of those best, original, vintage Star Wars toys.
