Kenner Action Display Stand: This is the boxed, store version of very first mail-in offer that Kenner ever had concerning Star Wars. The stand was marketed for the original 12 figures and was meant as a nicer replacement for the cardboard display stand that came as part of the Early Bird Certificate package. The retail version of this stand (shown here) came in a colorful box with the Star Wars logo, and later the Empire Strikes Back logo. Without the box, one cannot tell the difference between it and the mail-in version. The action feature here is the ability to rotate the figures by means of 3 levers. Each lever rotates 4 figures. These boxed stands are some of the rarest production pieces available to collectors.
