DON’T FORGET TO CLICK THE COIN! We continue with our uninterrupted run of the final wave of vintage Kenner figures which we’re calling “The Final Countdown.” These 15 action figures make up Kenner’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE series 8 figures. Here’s another beauty of a figure that still looks great today! But there is still debate on the Imperial Gunner. Find out why in our Research Droids Reviews today. Be sure to add your own experiences to the conversation! Reminisce your own childhood stories of this figure in our comments. Share your life-changing vintage Kenner adolescent experiences with us!
This is cool! Instagram user gorkoracing has images of unproduced super-articulated 3.75″ action figures. There apparently was supposed to be an Echo Base set produced including a revised Rebel Trooper and an all-new Probe Droid. He also lists that a new Death Star Gunner was part of the set, but I am certain he is mistaken. If you recall, JTA broke the news of the Death Star Gunner coming as part of the now-canceled The Black Series [Phase I] line as a basic figure for which we have insider information. (That Death Star Gunner basic figure release apparently never came to pass.) Hopefully, Hasbro gets all of this beautiful glory released in the relaunched The Vintage Collection! Special thanks to friend Victoria from Victoria’s Cantina for the alert!
If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the final product images of the Hot Toys A New Hope Death Star Gunner Sixth Scale figure. This figure looks phenomenal in my opinion. The helmet is so nicely done and the detail is spot on, but the outfit is what really shines for me. It looks to be tailored to perfection and is also interchangeable. You can more images of this incredible figure here.
