The first thing we should all do is doff our hats in Flickr user Darth Ray’s direction for sharing these fantastic black and white behind the scenes photos of what are mostly factory floor shots from the Kenner Factory back in the heyday of the Star Wars toy craze.
Notice that the previous picture of the two boys playing with the Death Star was used on the box art. I also love the fact that this woman is seriously giving Darth Vader the once over…was she wondering if the toy was suitable for some child she knew or her own collection? We will sadly never know.
“She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid. I’ve made a lot of special modifications myself.”
Darth Ray also makes note on his Flickr account that these photos and the rest on his page originally came from news.cincinnati.com
