Star Wars toys are commonplace in the toy aisles these days. But there was a time where there was a Star Wars action figure drought, and fans were hungry for new products to collect. There had not been any new Star Wars movies since the 1980’s, but suddenly Star Wars was experiencing a renaissance in the 1990’s!

Thanks to Kenner, Star Wars made it’s grand return to the toy aisle in 1995 with the new Power of the Force line of action figures! In this episode of Toysplosion, take a trip back to reminisce about the grand return of an action figure mainstay and learn the history behind it!
