As the title implies, the book focuses on the "vintage" toys—those from the Star Wars classic trilogy, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi (the movies made between 1977 and 1985). It provides the most comprehensive and accurate documentation of these popular collectibles. This is the first book that covers these vintage action figures in such detail and with clarity and completeness. It "puts it all together" in one volume and is completely illustrated with high resolution full-color photos throughout. This publication sets a new standard for research in this field and will be the reference book for years to come.

Although the book focuses on the action figures, it also looks at the figure-related items, Kenner’s marketing material to dealers and merchants, and even in-store displays that helped advertise and showcase the action figures in the stores. This 268-page book contains a wealth of factual details and is supported with over 900 color photos of the actual toys. Many one-of-a-kind items are showcased including early drawings and mock-up packaging designs thus providing some insight to the preproduction process.
