Kenner Star Wars Promotional Booklet
Here's an early Star Wars pack-in booklet from 1978. Notice the vinyl caped Jawa on the page for the original 12 action figures. It also cracks me up that this refers to the Chewbacca large size figure as "Space Wookie"...like there is any other kind.
We used to pour over these booklets to see what toys were coming out and what toys we should be looking for on store shelves. We didn't have your fancy internet, Kids, to know a year or two in advance what would be coming down the pike. Bah! Somebody help me to my chair.
Incidentally, this old booklet fell completely apart while scanning it for this post. Just one of the sacrifices I'm willing to make for you...the mostly silent and anonymous readers, to spread the 70s toy goodness.
