British Jig-Saw Puzzle Showing Kenner Action Figures: I really love collectibles that reflect some of the pervasiveness which Kenner's Star Wars action figure line enjoyed within the sphere of pop-culture. In some ways, the Waddington's House of Games puzzle you see above is comparable to the so-called "Birthday Cake" poster; both are non-action figure items which, nontheless, focus specifically on the Kenner action figures. Items such as these testify to the fact that, soon after their initial release, the Kenner figures had already become synonomous with the merchandising phenomenon that was Star Wars.
