Too bad Hasbro doesn't make commercials for SW these days.  These were great!

Wow- I hadn't really seen any of these famed Vintage commercials before, and I have to say they're quite interesting.

They're pretty cool and considering that the kids in them were mostly teenagers or 20-year-olds when I was born, I have to view them in a certain respect, but dang they had some cheesy background music ;)

I like the FX-7 commercial- they got pretty creative with the dialogue there, with the snowtrooper. :)

And that C-3PO's ad is great, and pretty flashy- a lot flashier than the cereal itself looked. Good stuff, there.

Hmm... I remember that scene in the cantina, where Walrusman went "Oh no, it's Ben Kenobi and his lightsaber, let's get outta here." Yep. ;)
