I guess he won't be a TIG'er - Gary Kurtz blames the toys for changing the course

of the story line and considered it a main reason for splitting with George Lucas
Didn't you have them already??

Luke Skywalker , Princess Leia and Han Solo have a combined 17 different figures! (Luke 7 , Leia 5, Han 5)
Alphabet Outsiders - The original figure line has no character starting with the

letters M, O, Q, V or X


Take two utini's and call me in the morning - The name Jawa was taken from

the Lucas families' doctor!!
Find someone your own age!!  When you first saw Leia and Han kiss, Harrison Ford

was 37 and Carrie Fisher was 23.
Golden Droid or Golden Girl ? Bea Arthur was one of the many guest stars in the

most unimpressive "Star Wars Holiday Special"
My Momma didn't raise no dummy! - Of the 93 figures released only three

non-droids were puppets. Yoda, Sy Snootles and Amanaman !
Captain Ameri-Fett ?? Captain America director Joe Johnston is widely credited

with the creation of Boba Fett's armor!
I'm with the Band ! - The instruments in the Max Rebo Band are called a Red Ball

Jett Keyboard and Chidinkalu Horn
Man of Few Words - Boba Fett speaks a total of 27 words throughout the

Original Trilogy.
Llama Llama loves Yod-ama? Sound odd it does but Yoda based on Dalai Llama he is!
A statue of Han in Carbonite is hidden in every Episode of Firefly!!!
Be the Figure - Kenner created General Madine with a beard, forcing actor

Dermot Crowley to wear fake beard to match the figure!
Hurricane Sandy made this banner hard to change !
What the Tuck?? - The Gammorean Guard body was re-purposed for the 1991

Friar Tuck action figure from the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves line!
Stick it to them! - As a cross promotion, Ewok characters were paired up with...

Glue Sticks from UHU!!
Triple Play - For ROTJ,  Richard Marquand directed the film, played an AT-ST Driver and was the voice of EV-9D9
Chewbacca's name is inspired by the name of Chebika City, in Tunisia,

 near the place where Tatooine scenes where shot.
Somebody move this "Walken" Carpet - Actor Christopher Walken actually

auditioned for the role of Han Solo!
Santa to Polar Bears to Sheep - If you lined up every Vintage figure made, head

to foot,  you would make a line from the North Pole to the South Pole and up to

New Zealand!
Three's Company - Vinyl Caped Jawa's have been confirmed on three licensed lines (and possibly a 4th)
 
Meccano 12BK
 
Toltoys ESB
 
Kenner 12BK

 

 

Third Times a Charm - Japan had 3 companies license SW Figures, one per movie!!

Star Wars - Takara

ESB - POPY

ROTJ - Tsukuda
Darth Neighbor - James Earl Jones lives less than a mile from me (Darthberizing)
Nunb from Laughing - Nien Numb spoke in a very real language called Haya

In Nairobi , film-goers heard "Hey, you, look there" or  "One thousand herds of elephants are standing on my foot".
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

James Earl Jones was so sure SW would flop, asked to not be credited!
Nice Gift George! - All six Star Wars Movie were released in May, approximately

 on the weekend following his May 14th Birthday!!!
They bleeped every word ! R2s name came from Lucas overhearing two editors.

When asking for Reel Two , Dialogue Two they abbreviate to R2D2
"Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?" - NO!

Mark Hamill is 2 inches taller than Temuera Morrison
Color me Impressed - Luke figures Lightsaber has come in Blue, Green and Yellow.

But only screen accurate once (Luke Jedi with Green Saber)
Grand Moff Doctor? - Peter Cushing (Wilhuff Tarkin) played the part of the most famous timelord in two Dr. Who movies!
Get in the Hutt!  - 1/3 of the 93 figures produced appear in Jabba's ROTJ scenes!
Thanks Paul (Artoo_Detour) for some fun fun Anagrams!!

Princess Leia - special siren

Anakin Skywalker - a snarky weak link
Dutch Treat! Vader is Dutch for "Father". How about a spoiler alert for The Netherlands George!?!?
Fun Fact! - Italian Company Harbert only released 2 figures from Empire Strikes Back!
Did you know? 42 million figures were shipped in the 1st year of sales! Submitted by Cantina Patron
The distinctive sound of a blaster was created by Ben Burtt striking a radio tower guide wire with a hammer!

Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will be delighted to know that a Millennium Falcon is actually on the wall of the Entrance to the theater!!


Can you name everyone to play some form of Darth Vader throughout the six films?
