Here’s a super rare Star Wars Television commercial for your Thursday morning enjoyment. “Kenner’s Star Wars Large Size Action Figures” (sold separately, mind you.) R2-D2, C-3PO, Han Solo and “The Stormtrooper” are featured. If you got one of these steroid-injected action figures under the ol’ Xmas tree in ’79 you were a lucky lil’ bastard indeed.
This particular Star Wars toy spot aired on Chicago TV on Friday, November 16th 1979. Remember kids, you can push R2-D2’s secret button to open his hidden compartment!
