This post features action figures from the Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire line. Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire was a huge Lucasfilm multimedia project from 1996 to include: a novel, comic series, video game and toys all to create a story set (in the old Expanded Universe) between the films The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. At the time, I easily tracked down the novel and comic series. It was hard to track down the action figures. I didn't get to play the video game until it was a bit older too. These figures included: Luke Skywalker costumed in an Imperial uniform, Chewbacca disguised as Snoova the wookiee bounty hunter, Dash Rendar, Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise, and Prince Xizor (crime boss). #starwarsactionfigures #starwars #starwarstoys #starwarstoy #starwarsfigure #starwarsfigures #starwarsshadowsoftheempire #shadowsoftheempire
I had all of these and a few even survived my youth! The Dash and Luke in emperial guard uniform where so striking for the time. Much like the Red saber package Boba Fett they just jump out at you!
Awesome! Looks like you’ve got a few different regional releases there, Dash looks like the standard US one and the rest might be the European version?
