Join us on a journey through the 1982 Kenner Toy Fair Catalog, which offered a first look at Kenner’s latest toys. For instance, readers had the chance to examine the latest Star Wars Micro Collection Playsets and Indiana Jones action figures.
Kenner heavily concentrated on the toy line that put them on the map, Star Wars, in the 1982 Toy Fair Catalog. When George Lucas sought out a toy company to create merchandise for his space saga, most companies turned him down. However, Kenner decided to take the chance to accept the 6-month timeline to create the Star Wars toys. Despite gambling with an Early Bird Certificate Package, Star Wars became the top-selling toy line for years to come.

On this page, Kenner promoted Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport). This awesome vehicle had both battle lights and battle sounds. Moreover, it was the weapon of the Empire that was giant and packed with action.
The AT-AT was 17 ½” tall and 22” long with legs that could be posed by moving the hips, knees, and ankles. Then, a remote lever allowed fans to move the head up, down, and sideways to search out Rebel foes. Meanwhile, the cockpit held two action figures to “pilot” the AT-AT. Fans could also remove the side door so that up to 10 action figures could fit inside the body.
For more action-adventure, two remotely-operated laser cannons moved back and forth with pulsating lights and sound. This vehicle required two “D” batteries, which were not included.
