Join us on a journey through the 1986 Kenner Toy Fair Catalog, which offered a first look at Kenner’s latest toys. For instance, readers had the chance to view the Star Wars Droids and M.A.S.K. toys.
Beyond the Ewoks, Kenner also produced a second Star Wars toy line in 1986, Droids, which featured the adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO. That year, the excitement was back as Lucasfilm brought these unforgettable characters and action-packed stories to Saturday morning television. Now, this epic struggle of good vs evil continued in Kenner’s exciting Droids Collection. All the popular characters from the animated series were back, with great new friends. They were also all bright, colorful, and intricately detailed.
On this page, Kenner presented No. 71540, Star Wars Droid Collection Droid Desert Skiff Vehicle. Remember in RETURN OF THE JEDI when LUKE SKYWALKER and his band of Rebels fought off JABBA’s henchmen in the desert? Well this dynamic and exciting vehicle was also now featured in the new cartoon series DROIDS: THE ADVENTURES OF R2-D2 AND C-3PO.
So, fans could pretend to steer the vehicle over their own simulated desert by maneuvering the movable rear fins. This new DROID DESERT SKIFF also featured landing pods so the vehicle could stand unassisted. Then, a moving gangplank sent THALL JOBEN on his way. It also had a floor panel, which allowed a STAR WARS figure, without a doubt a bad guy, to be thrown overboard. Breakaway railings recreated the battle damage excitement.
We are glad to present these exciting exclusive scans to the 1986 Kenner Toy Fair Catalog. Continue to see even more exciting promotional images that Kenner provided to retailers and representatives.
