Book Description 2015. Soft Cover. Condition: New. Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. There's no question that the Star Wars franchise has made cinematic history time and again. But, did you know Star Wars action figures, playsets, creatures and vehicles produced by Kenner, also changed the game when it came to toys? With the oil shortage of the 1970s prompting Kenner to reduce the size of its plastic toys, it set the foundation for unmatched popularity of the 3-3/4-inch toys. In the Picker's Pocket Guide - Star Wars Toys, penned by the respected toy expert Mark Bellomo, the Star Wars toys universe is explored with the eye and interest of a collector and fan. The author provides a valuable run down of abbreviations used in the Stars Wars toy line, offers advice for cultivating a collection or defining a collection that is already established, and includes detailed explanation of the condition grades used in assessing values. The 14 chapters of the book are arranged primarily by the film the toys are associated with, and within each chapter is: An introduction with historic details about the film, and lists of toys released in association with that particular film. Values in multiple condition grades for each toy Key facts related to the availability of items and any variations Detailed high-quality color photographs Savvy tips and strategies for successfully locating Star Wars toys Whether it's Luke and his light saber, Darth Vader and his TIE Fighter, Clone Troopers or Yoda that strike a chord, Picker's Pocket Guide - Star Wars Toys is an empowering resource for any Star Wars fan and collector.
