32 Action Figure Hanger - 'Collect All 32'

First shown in Kenner's 1980 "Pre-Toy Fair" Catalog as a "Collect All 31" sign (Yoda was a late add-on and was not present on early mock-ups for this display), the "Collect All 32" is interesting for the figures, or rather, the variations of the figures that it depicts. Aside from the double-telescoping versions of Luke, Vader and Ben and the small-head type of Han Solo - all four of which were long out of production at the time of this sign's manufacture - it very oddly represents the character of Boba Fett with the original, kit-bashed prototype that appeared on many "20-back" Star Wars blister cards. Though its a mystery why the folks at Kenner would have chosen to do this, it is perhaps more interesting to note that the Jawa depicted on this display is shown wearing rubber or plastic bandolier straps over its cloth cloak.

Figures aside, however, this is a beautiful display and pretty darn scarce to boot.
