Hey kids! Let's dig back into the super rich history of Geekfest Rants! This is one of my favorite episodes from the past.. Ep.230 Attack Of The Twelve Backs. It's a very indepth look at the 1st wave of Kenner Star Wars Figures!.
Here's what Carlos had to say at the time..
It all began with the 12-Backs, the first 12 Star Wars action figures released in 1978. While the movie overtook our lives in the summer of 1977, the action figure line overtook our wallets a year later.
Listen to Carlos and James as they give you a beginner's course on Star Wars vintage action figure collecting.
How were these figures introduced to the market, what were the variants, where did we get them, what is a double-telescoping light saber? So, dig out you old figures for today's GeekFest Rants.
