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 Mini-Rigs. These Mini-Rigs went nearly anywhere by crawling, climbing, or even flying. Each of these vehicles easily held figures, which were sold separately.
The new Cap-2 (Captivator) was used by spies of the empire to capture rebel prisoners. The rotating legs were fitted with suction cups that stuck to any surface. It could even hide under tables. Its rotating arms featured a claw and hook to carry action figures and capture unsuspecting Rebels. Then, Cap-2 had remotely-operated spring-loaded claws.
Next, the INT-4 (Interceptor) had an opening hatch and movable laser cannon. INT-4 also featured landing skids and remote-controlled wings to fly short missions. It even could fit in the body of the AT-AT.
Then, the MTV-7 (Multi-Terrain Vehicle) had spring-loaded legs and a movable laser cannon.
The MLC-3(Mobile Laser Cannon) was a Rebel vehicle used on Hoth. It carried one action figure in its manually opened cockpit. It also had a dome for protection.
Next up, the PDT-8 (Personnel Deployment Transport) quickly got two action figures from one place to another. It had entrance ramps that opened and closed, movable laser machine guns, and movable side-mounted jet thrusters.
