Thanks to the many collectors and fans who share their findings on social media we are able to add three more Kenner and Hasbro Star Wars action figure appearances to our Lights! Camera! Action (Figures)! filmography!
On a very special Christmas episode of Cagney and Lacey in 1982 “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, the detectives hit the stores only to pass by some beautiful packed-on-the-pegs Empire Strikes Back figures. Special thanks to Jason L. for the heads up and Toby B. for the use of the images!
Next up, we have a more modern appearance in the form of a few Power of the Force 2 figures that appeared in an episode of Dexter. This scene appeared in Season 2’s episode titled “The Dark Defender” which has the serial killer visiting a comic book store crime scene. A big thanks to Justin B. over at the IGrewUpStarWars.com Facebook page for the image.
And finally, with stars of Rogue One making the rounds last month prior to the release of their film, there was bound to be a figure appearance. Jimmy Kimmel Live’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Cast Show” provided a look at the 6″ The Black Series K-2SO figure and an opportunity to poke a little fun at collectors.
