The ill-fated Star Wars Large Action Figure line was cancelled by Kenner before the true masterpieces of the line ever made it to market. Kenner had planned to continue the line for the release of The Empire Strikes Back but only two boxes were released with the Empire logo, IG-88 and Boba Fett.

A whole host of new large action figures were prototyped: Leia Bespin, Han Hoth, Luke Bespin, Lando, Luke X-Wing, and various Leia fashions, and some were shown at Toy Fair and got as far as box flats in packaging. This chart exhibits all known Empire Strikes Back large action figure boxes from the original Kenner line.
