The Power of the Force Appreciation Page!
SCROLL DOWN FOR COLLECTOR PHOTOS!
Star Wars Power of the Force, the greatest action figure line to ever have been made. My love for these will be eternal and nobody can change my mind. While people goo goo and ga ga over The Vintage Collection, I am over here shaking my head and thinking about the glory years that were the mid to late 90’s. These were MY first Star Wars figures and will always be tops on the food chain.
Send us pictures or video (or tag us on social media) of your Power of the Force collection (strictly Power of the Force or POTF2 for you uninitiated) and we'll include them in our photo gallery below!
BOOTLEG DASH RENDAR 6-INCH FIGURE
As heard on Episode 79-Sio Bibble’s Bald Spot, Dan did a live unboxing of a gift from our buddy, Jay Roy. What was in the box? Oh nothing special, just a bootleg Shadows of the Empire 2-pack featuring Han Solo and the one, the only DASH RENDAR!! You gotta see it to believe it and make sure to listen to the show link (above) as Dan discovers what a marvelous gem he has in his collection now!

DECORATING WITH ACTION FIGURES BY CHRISTOPHER LEDDY
And we thought he only collected the Kenner Rebel Commando! Christopher Leddy (@VintageViewport) sent along a few scanned photos of an amazing Power of the Force collection from the late 90’s. Chris tweeted to us: “Feeling nostalgic. Found some pics of my bedroom circa 1998. I was around 17yo. I was in full #POTF2 mode. Lots of vintage Star Wars Kenner items in there as well. I’m sure @DengarDan & @MikeTarkin will appreciate these!”
Oh we sure do, Chris! Is there a name for the phenomenon that occurred in Star Wars fandom in the 90’s where we used our carded figures as wall art, wallpaper or wall boarders? When we were kids maybe our toys just sat in a toy box, waiting to be played with again but as first time, actual COLLECTORS, we kept our Power of the Force Star Wars figures carded and displayed them as trophies! Tacky? Nope. Orange and green just go together.
