photo-originalHere’s a big heads up for fans of both vintage Kenner action figures and newspaper Star Wars nostalgia.’s Philip Reed (whom we interviewed last year for his last set of Star Wars action figure books) has just begun a new Kickstarter for his latest Star Wars-themed book which focuses on vintage newspaper ads featuring Kenner’s infamous line of Star Wars figures. Collect These Figures and Accessories: An Unofficial Look at Star Wars Newspaper Ads, 1977 to 1986 is unlike the average Kickstarter project as it is 100% finished already. The purpose of this crowdfund is simply to send the book to the printers. As of press time, the book was already a fifth of the way to being funded with 10 days still left to go.


Now speaking as someone who has backed each of Philip’s previous Star Wars books we can attest these books are worth your money and the great thing about this Kickstarter is you are given the chance to pick-up his previous releases depending on your level of backing.


For more information on Collect These Figures and Accessories check out the Kickstarter page, Philip’s website and his Flickr account for more pages from the book.

Until next time,

May the Figures be with you!
