Product description


All toys are not created equal. The ever popular Star Wars toys have been sold all over the world, and although the majority of the toys offered have been the same everywhere, there have been unique items in each country. Sometimes it's the toy itself that's different or unique; sometimes it's the combination of toys - like an action figure included with a playset; and always there are differences in the packaging, if only to reflect the local language. This book details uniquely Canadian Star Wars toys. With more than a decade of expertise in dealing with Canadian Star Wars toys, veteran collector Jim McCallum shares with us his extensive knowledge. And not just the details of the toys themselves, but also how and why they came to be; their availability in the collecting world; and, of course, their current market values; and all done with full colour pictures. Also included are relevant historical statements from Mr Mac Irwin, the main in charge of Kenner Canada - the place where these uniquely Canadian Star Wars toys were produced. Canadian Star Wars toys have become a hot item for collectors in the US as well as in Canada, and now you can find out exactly why.

This book is both a marvellous introduction for new collectors and an essential resource for Star Wars completists.
