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.
Sandtroopers.com has posted new images of upcoming Target exclusive 2 packs featuring ARF Trooper Waxer and Battle Droid and Special Ops Clone Trooper and Geonosian Drone.
