Terrible 90's Star War Toys

We were all waiting for these new star wars toys to be released in the 1990's and you can't imagine our huge disappointment on how bad these figures looked. I don't mind restyled vintage toys especially for the vehicles but in the end I will always put the originals before the replicas so I was also out with these new vehicles although I'm suer some kids had some great fun with them.

The worst part was Kenner's arrogance when they were saying "This is what the toy market wants, these muscle style figures" and the Toy Collector magazines lapping up the BS press release propaganda.

These toys were very bad and Kenner's arrogance took the sail out of buying new Star War toys for me.

I can't speak for anyone but

I can't speak for anyone but me but I would EAT UP JoshB reviews of all these figures. Seriously,do it!

Coincidentally,I just found out about this comic strip on Rebelscum a couple weeks ago. It's about POTF scalpers back in the 90s. Pretty funny stuff IMO:

I agree would love to read

I agree would love to read all the review.

I remember when these cane out and I was at Toys R Us and I saw some bearded 40 something all nerd-ed out trying to explain all the "rare" versions to some unsuspecting young couple. It was a bunch of worthless info in the long run!

Yes those scalpers!
