Kenner Star Wars Toy Ad

Kenner filled the double-page centerfold spread in Marvel Comics cover dated January 1980 with an ad that showcased an amazing lineup of Star Wars action figures and other toys. Star Wars was still white hot more than two years after the May 1977 debut of the original movie, so this ad would have been well placed ahead of the holiday shopping season since these comics hit newsstands in October 1979.  Wow, the nine year-old in me still aches for some of these toys!  Click on the image below to see a high-resolution scan of the full double-page spread.
