Toys R Us to sell Vintage Figures
« on: September 22, 2003, 01:58:00 PM »

I just recieved this email from Toys R Us in the USA.

Thank you for your interest in the Vintage Star Wars figures available at ToysRus.com/ Amazon.com.  We have had many emails regarding these items and we are very excited to be able to bring something special to Star Wars collectors everywhere.

These limited edition sets are made up of Star Wars figures that were released in the late 1970ıs and early 1980ıs.  The figures in these sets are ³loose², thatıs is to say, they are out of their original packaging but are still original, ³collectible condition² action figures.

Kenner released many Star Wars action figures and many different action figures of the same characters.  The following action figures are contained in each Limited Edition Vintage Star Wars Action Figure Set:

Good Guys Set-
Luke Skywalker in X-Wing Outfit
C3PO
Hoth Soldier

Bounty Hunters Set-
IG-88
Boba Fett
Dengar

Bespin Set-
Han Solo in Bespin Gear
Chewbacca
Lando Calrissian
Lobot
Storm Trooper

All sets come with the correct assortment of weapons and accessories.

We hope that you are as excited about these Limited Edition Vintage Star Wars Action Figure Sets as we are.  Please make sure that you check back with ToysRus.com/ Amazon.com often as we will be adding new sets all the time.

Thanks again.

TRU/Amazon won't ship to Canada, so there's one knock (yes, Amazon.ca will, but TRU is aligned with .com)

The prices aren't great and can probably be beat on ebay, if not at some place like bounty hunter toys, without incurring exchange.  

No indication of whether weapons are original or repro.  Correct or not, this matters too.  

No clear indication of condition.  C9.9 or C5?  What are you getting.  

Nice thought and if they put a selection together with Amanaman + Anakin, I'm there.  Or a nifty original 12 pack.

I don't do vintage so this isn't for me, but it is interesting that they are doing this. the repro acc. thing will make a big difference to collectors but on the whole I think they'll sell ok to nostalgic x-mas shoppers (depending on price, ??, I didn't look)
