The Vintage Kenner Star Wars 3-Packs are some of the most rare and difficult action toy collectibles to track down, let alone compile a complete set. To commemorate Empire's 30th anniversary, Hasbro teams up with Target to produce 3 packs within a 3 pack and reproduces the classic Kenner packaging that sends wings aflutter for many who love the nostalgia and design of the black and silver piping as well as that Kenner logo.
I got my box of Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Packs today (full disclosure: I work there for my day job) and I was surprised to see not only was a bonus helmet included for Baron Fel, but a new, previously unseen comic pack based on Empire Strikes Back movie figures-- including one you might find particularly desirable-- were shown on the back. While no plans are known for a release date of this item, we have more pics of this unique set (and quick text reviews of the rest) after the jump.

Hasbro and Wal-Mart teamed up to bring you a great Jabba the Hutt set, and it seems so well they jacked up the price. Available online (with free site-to-store shipping) is the Jabba's Throne set which, since its August release, remains difficult to find at retail.

This isn't your father's Texas Instrument watch.
