Watch Colin Mochrie Play With Kenner Star Wars Figures

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 21, 2012 in Star Wars

We all love Whose Line Is It Anyway, right? I enjoy Colin Mochrie’s delightful sense of abrupt humor, and what could be a better way to lift your spirits this weekend than to see him goofily reenact Star Wars with Kenner action figures. It’s perfect. Also, George Lucas being an Ewok is now canon – I will accept no other explanations. Read more…

Of course they weren’t alone back then, many anime studios did work for American series — the best example would be ThunderCats from that era. Read more…

Dagobah Sure is Strange Place…

From 1981 (well this commercial aired in 1982, but you know what I mean) comes this spot for the Kenner’s Yoda and R2-D2 sensor-scope action figures from the Empire Strikes Back collection.
