Super7's 1985 POTF-Inspired Metropolis Maria Figure!

Super 7 is releasing another excellent exclusive this year, in line with their previous Alien Hammerhead figure. This year it’s Kenner 1985 The Power Of The Force packaging with a 5POA Metropolis Maria as the featured figure. Awesome! Too bad Hasbro doesn’t do a whole line of never-produced POTF Retro Collection figures like this! Imagine a POTF Bossk, POTF IG-88, POTF Luke Bespin. It will never happen as the line continually gets squandered. Any way, check out Super 7’s Facebook page for more

Vintage Kenner Research Droids Reviews Redux!

Precisely ONE YEAR AGO today we began our run of vintage Kenner Research Droids Reviews. Because the vintage Kenner line served as the catalyst which shaped our hearts and minds as Star Wars collectors, it makes total sense that they were one of our most successful columns here in the history of Jedi Temple Archives. Our readers recounted numerous childhood stories and events of what made the vintage Kenner Star Wars toy line what it was and why it has left an indelible mark on their lives. Because of the column’s success, we’ve decided to relaunch the series, with every review posted on the anniversary of its first publishing in 2018. If you’re new to the site or you’d like to relive these fantastic figures, galleries, and infinite details, please partake once again. It seems appropriate to do this with the launch of the Retro Collection. As a bonus, we’re updating the best “Hasbro Modern Counterpart” should any of the original choices changed. Stay tuned for the first “re-release” today! Thanks again for making the column a roaring success.
