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 No. 38820, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Dagobah Action Playset, Yoda’s home and Luke Skywalker’s training ground. There was only one place in the universe with snakes, swamps, and Yoda, the Jedi Master, Dagobah. Fans could now relive all of Luke Skywalker’s and Yoda’s adventures with this dramatic playset. This playset accommodated most action figures, which were sold separately.
Inside the craggy tree was Yoda’s tiny house. With the help of two action levers, Luke Skywalker could levitate himself, two storage containers, and even R2-D2 as Yoda taught him the ways of “The Force”. There was also a play “bog” where R2-D2 and other action figures might sink. Then, Luke Skywalker confronted the dark side in the tree cave. Then, fans could move the two action levers and relive Luke Skywalker’s and Darth Vader’s lightsaber duels.
