Available Now: Vintage 1970s-Style Kenner Grand Moff Tarkin Action Figure (with disposable board game)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 5, 2019

3707 The very, very long-awaited Grand Moff Tarkin in 3 3/4-inch 1978-style has arrived at Target stores.  Use DPCI 087-06-0431 in-stores or this link for availability.  It's $19.99 and packed in a remake of the "Escape the Death Star" board game, which was produced by Kenner in late 1977 in order to get something, anything, on shelves thanks to its lack of tooling.  It's basically a $7 protective shell around Tarkin's 6x9-inch cardback, pre-punched, faux-weathered, stickered, and complete with a blaster pistol that's pretty darned convincing as almost an original.
