A regularly updated blog about my vintage Kenner Star Wars toy collection. Some stuff that I've recently acquired; some stuff that I've had since I was a kid. Some rare, some common, but all sharing the warmth, charm and character of the "first generation" of Star Wars toys - the ones we played with as kids in the late '70s and early '80s.

Much as I love the vintage Kenner line in all its imperfect glory, it always bothered me a bit that some very important characters were left out. I'm not alone in this, as the Internet is awash with nerdrage on the subject.
Some, however, have resolved to do something about it... I've delved into the world of customs myself a couple times, making custom vintage Grand Moff Tarkin and Cantina Star Pilot (Bo Shek) figures. But this guy has taken it to a whole 'nother level...
Check out these custom figures by Iron Cow Productions. Simply mind-blowing and for the most part, simple recipes. I know I'll be cribbing some of these ideas to make some more customs of my own! Thanks for the inspiration, Matt!
