You have to wonder if the voting has been hacked when The Last Jedi is beating out The Empire Strikes Back in a poll where StarWars.com is soliciting fan feedback for the best Star Wars film. Here we go again! Special thanks to our friends at Bantha Skull for alerting us to this May the 4th poll. We didn’t even know it existed!

NOTE: In case the results change after posting this article, The Last Jedi was leading the result with 30%. The Empire Strikes Back was the next highest film at 26%.

Review: Luke Skywalker - SW - Vintage Kenner

For years, our readers have requested we open up categories in our Research Droids Reviews for the incredible vintage Kenner Star Wars action figures, a line where 5POA WAS OK. With the rebirth of The Vintage Collection, the 40th anniversary of when the first Star Wars figures hit retail (in 1978), and May the 4th, everything has been perfectly aligned for us to deliver this to you finally. We feel now is a picture-perfect time to begin our trek down this road.

We want this to be an interactive experience for YOU. I prattle enough about the modern Hasbro figures, so we want these “reviews” to be more reflective and nostalgic, just like the figures. You’ll notice a MAJOR revision to our review template. It now features a vintage Kenner-inspired theme and a different approach to the discussion. For us, these 92+ specimens are perfect as is. It would be futile to rate them as good, average or poor. So you’re also not going to see a summary describing the figure or how it ranks among others. Instead, I will be sharing my own personal experiences growing up with vintage Kenner Star Wars figures (in a very brief write up), and in turn, I want you to share your experiences with me in the comments.

The poll has also changed. You still have five options, but they focus on your personal experience with the figure at hand, not how you’d rank it among other vintage Kenner figures. You’ll still find a great deal of collector-friendly notes and documented variations that exist. Also, we want to emphasize that these reviews are a work in progress. If you think other valuable information should be included here, feel free to drop us a line and let us know what we’re missing.

I hope you will reminisce your experiences of the vintage Kenner figures together with me. Chuck and I put a lot of work into this format, and we both hope you find it to be another fun experience here at Jedi Temple Archives. Click through for our first review: Luke Skywalker. We hope you thoroughly enjoy it.

If there’s something The Handmaid’s Tale author Margaret Atwood knows about, it’s life imitating art. And now, in a wide-ranging interview with Variety, which recognized the celebrated author as one of its Power of Women honorees, Atwood has made a surprising claim about the way she thinks pop culture influenced another event: She said the 9/11 terrorists attacks were borne out of a plot point from Star Wars. EW.com has the full story.
