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!
Our Power of the Force series begins with Episode #48: The Greatest Action Figure Line Ever Created. We cover the first wave of modern Star Wars action figures.
In Episode #50: Tarkin's Knee Holes, we take a look at Wave 2. At only three figures in total it's a small wave but a powerful one featuring X-wing Pilot Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett and Lando Calrissian.
In Episode #53 Dan shares a great memory of his POTF Yoda figure.
In Episode #59 we tackle a couple favourite waves, Power of the Force Wave 4 & 5
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.
