SW Droids Action Figures Identification Tool with Pictures

Star Wars Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO logo

A few years after the original trilogy ended, Lucasfilm worked with Nelvana to create a new animated adventure, Star Wars Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO.  This 13-episode series presented a glimpse of the life of the two famous droids before they teamed up with Luke Skywalker. Thus, these two took on many of the galaxy’s dangers, including bounty hunters, gangsters, and pirates.

Notably, the animated series maintained the use of Anthony Daniels as C-3PO’s voice actor. So, the character felt exactly as he did on the silver screen. Otherwise, Ben Burtt provided the beeps and whistles for R2-D2. While other characters from the films, like Boba Fett made appearances, there were no additional voices from the films.

Star Wars Droids was successful enough to garner an additional, special episode outside of its 13-episode run. However, it did not survive past its first season. Still, fans fondly remember the animated exploits of C-3PO and R2-D2, especially since Kenner created a toy line for them.

Kenner Star Wars Droids R2-D2

Since 1978, Kenner had been successfully producing Star Wars action figures and vehicles. While they signed on before the movies came out in theaters, their toys hit the shelves months later. Despite the wait for the toys, Kenner’s gamble with Star Wars brought them to the top of the pack.

Unfortunately, after the Return of the Jedi came out in 1983, ending the trilogy, interest in Star Wars began to wane. Likewise, Kenner’s toy line began to lose steam. Unsurprisingly, they readily produced toys for the new Star Wars projects, including Droids and Ewoks in 1985.

Kenner produced 12 3 ¾” action figures for the Star Wars Droids toy line. These action figures included characters like Kea Moll, Boba Fett, Jann Tosh, Thall Joben, C-3PO, and an A-Wing Pilot. They also created action figures for Tig Fromm, Kez Iban, Uncle Gundy, Sise Fromm, R2-D2, and Jord Dusat.

Beyond these action figures, Kenner produced a few other accessories, vehicles, and sets for the toy line. For instance, they released one of the first sets featuring Sy Snootles and the Rebo Band from Jabba’s Palace. There was also a Droids-themed C-3PO Collector’s Case and a Droids-Themed Light Saber. As for vehicles, Kenner released an A-Wing Fighter, the Desert Skiff, an Imperial Side Gunner Vehicle, and an ATL (Air to Land) Interceptor Vehicle.

Even though Kenner created some unique toys for Star Wars Droids, some were repackaged from their main line. The repackaged toys were both Boba Fett and the A-Wing Pilot.

Despite Kenner’s hopes of reigniting interest in Star Wars, the popularity of the franchise continued to dwindle. Thus, their toy line only lasted for a year before it was discontinued.

    How to use the Identification Tool to find your action figures and toy lines

    Do you have an old-school G1 Transformers toy you are trying to identify? Don’t know the name? No problem! I’ll help you use this identification tool. For example, just type in “jet” in the figure name field and hit search. You’ll see all the Transformers G1 Toys that are jets. Maybe try “car” and select the color “blue” and a list of Transformers matching those results will appear. Maybe you don’t know what the finished vehicle will make, so try searching by “red” only. Did you forget to remove “car”? Now search just the color “red”. Perhaps you know the name, but can’t spell it try “Wheljck” instead of “Wheeljack” and all the Wheeljack characters are listed for you.

    We have all the G1 Transformers list of characters in our database. You can search by Transformers name, as well as just line or subgroup. You can identify Transformers that are all red or all the figures that are orange. The Transformers toy list can even be sorted by package type. You can identify which came with a sticker sheet, or which came without instructions. Want to know all the 1984 Transformers toys and none of the others from 1985-1990? No problem, just select the release year from “1984” to “1984”. Perhaps you just want to know the list of G1 Transformers “Autobots”, or just the “Decepticons”, our ID tool can do that.

    Mostly we made this so you could see if your action figures were missing some accessories or parts. So you can see that too.
