Does anyone remember the actor figures?
« on: November 3, 2006, 08:57 PM »
I don't remember exactly when they came out in the time line of the modern lines, but i think they were con exclusives (not made by Hasbro). I remember that there was a Kenny Baker figure. Anyone remember these? Anyone have pics?

Those were customs. Hasbro or Kenner never produced such a line.

I remember them... and used to have all 3 (if we are talking about the same set).
There was Kenny Baker, Jeremy Bulloch and Peter Mayhew.
They were made for a Toy Expo in Florida by a large collectibles store whose name escapes me right now.
They were "legitimized" by the fact that the actors signed the figures and the figures used to be in pretty high demand.
Sorry... I don't have pics of any of them tho.

Hasbro didn't make the POTF2 line either. ;) I thought you were refering to Kenner. :P

That's right!
There was a Bib Fortuna fig in the series. I forgot about that.

BTW... the ones I had were all GC... I don't recall ever seeing the RC.
