|Vinyl Action Figure Collector's Case (1981 Model--Large Yoda Head)|
The new graphics that Kenner cooked up for this issue of the vinyl case were terrific. And, of course, they prominently featured several of the figures and toys that Kenner either had already released or planned for release that year, including the TaunTaun, Turret and Probot Playset, and the Slave 1 and AT-AT vehicles.
At least one new insert was released with this case. It was blue on one side and yellow on the other, and it featured photos of the expanded range of action figures-- by that point there were 41 in all. As I stated above, this case isn't nearly as easy to find as the older Star Wars model, but it's not incredibly rare, either. Still, unused examples with their seal stickers intact can sell for decent prices.
The following year, Kenner issued yet another ESB vinyl storage case, which again featured unique graphics.
First Issued: 1981 (ESB graphics)
