Without a doubt, the legacy of Star Wars never would have survived without its toys. The juggernaut of merchandise supplied our imaginations with endless possibilities. It is one of the many things that made Star Wars the beloved classic it is today. As we prepare for May the Fourth, we thought we would sit back and enjoy a few classic Star Wars Commercials. 
 
 
 
C-3P0 and Chewbacca
Why was C-3PO spread eagled at the end?
 

 
Palitoy Vintage Star Wars Scout Walker Commercial
I wonder what happened after the freeze frame?
 

 
Star Wars Patrol Dewback Commercial
If we, the kids using the Dewback, find the droids the movie doesn’t happen, right?
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Y-Wing
Why cards when they had all those play sets? Oh the clever line at the end, LOL.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Zuckuss / AT-AT Comm
This is a weird collection of figures and a terrible location.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Boba Fett's Slave 1
Slave 1 still rules!
 

 
Star Wars Vintage PALITOY Commercial - Rancor Monster
This one has a great set for the figures.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - The Rebo Band
Love those window shades in the background.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Droids Collection
That A-Wing was sweet.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Bossk Mail Away Offer
There is just something weird in that there is only an adult in this one.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Yoda / R2-D2
Perhaps the first televised Yoda imitation.
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Wampa / Tauntaun
Wampa! Thankfully they didn’t show the Tauntaun dying. Wampa!
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Troop Transport
Where was this in the movie again?
 

 
Star Wars Vintage KENNER Commercial - Collectors Case
Damn, that is some bad hair on that kid.

This one pretty much runs the gauntlet.

 Think that was Ricky Schroeder in the drawback commercial

Yup, that is Ricky Shroeder indeed.

Man these commercials bring back a lot of memories.

LOL! I always got a kick out of those kids trying the Anthony Daniels Brit accent.

LOVE the days when a toy line could dedicate a whole commercial to a square carrying case and make it sound like the must-have item for your collection.

I've got about half of the stuff advertised here tucked away in a closet somewhere.  Wish I hadn't played with all of it, but where's the fun in that???  :)
