Awesome task congrats!

Love the Hasbro 12" line VERY underrated line overall. Sure there were a few dogs here and there, but the good I always thought outweighed the bad, and overall for the price, you couldn't beat it.

I agree bobafett14, especially when you consider the craftsmanship that was put into the REAL CLOTH wardrobes. My friends, whom never saw my collection are amazed by the details in them.

I loved that series so much when it came out, all the way until 2000 when I stopped collecting them after getting an offer from a comic book shop I couldn't refuse for my then complete collection. Still, some great memories of these toys! My favorites were all the exclusives and the hunt (much different hunting then compared to now!). Service Merchandise AT AT Driver, all the Wal mart Cantina Band, FAO Swartz two packs, KB Toys and JCP exclusives...the list goes on and on. Good times!

Yup, I remember me and my buddy used to hit all the Targets and Walmarts at the crack of dawn in Los Angeles, my son even remembers me telling him to run inside and grab whatever he could, he was 6 years old at the time, ha

Yeah that Wampa/Luke Target exclusive was a B to find. And back then Targets were far and few between! I actually cursed that because Target was so new to the scene. I ended up picking it up via a trade. The Cantina members were tough, since it required multiple trips to Wal Mart and opening the boxes to see which one it was LOL.

My favorite hunt was a random trip to the lower Jersey coast (I lived in Philly then) and actually found Han Tauntaun at TRU (two of them actually) and a Chewbacca (remember how hard he was to get for some reason?) and the fairly difficult Boba Fett as well.

The easiest ones for me were FAO Swartz, Service Merchandise (I literally picked the AT AT Drivers out of the case) and all the KB Toys ones. For all the nice features of buying and trading on the internet, that was a more satisfying hunt for some reason. Reading your list actually plays out the memory of those hunts to me :).

Just added a 12 inch Tri-Logo Boba Fett to my collection, it's about a C-7, but it's still factory sealed. B)

I remember vividly getting the Wampa/Luke. I found out the store close to my job was going to be selling them on a certain Sunday and I made plans to get up extra early to make sure I got one. I went to bed early the night before and as I was laying in bed I thought to myself, I better go now and not wait till the morning. It was a good thing I did, they only had 25 and I was number 14, there were probably close to 100 people on line by the time the Store opened. Chewbacca was one I could never find in the Stores but I read on some web site to call Hasbro and order it, which I did.
Not only was it rewarding to get all those exclusives but you also had a story to go along with it.

Congrats. to the OP for finishing up this collection. I don't have all of the 12" Hasbro toys, but do have many of them. Sure, not all of them were great (especially the human figures) but I did like most of them. The alien/droid figures were, in many cases, especially well done.

Yes, the 12" Wampa/Luke Target exclusive was extremely HTF. I remember looking for this in vain in Fall 1997, and finding nothing. I was able to find one in Fall 1998, when Hasbro/Target re-released them (same packaging, IIRC).

The six 12" Wal-Mart Cantina band members were extremely tough to track down as well. Again, I never found them the first time around - but was able to get them a year later, when they were re-released.

I may be in the minority here, but I do not have fond memories of driving all over town looking for these 12" exclusives - these were definitely the most difficult to find of all the SW toys I've collected - very frustrating experience. A lot of this had to do with the fact that this was in the early days of the Internet, so finding these online was somewhat difficult (at least for me at the time) - so, the main way to find these was retail (plus, many of brick & mortar stores that sold these exclusives didn't have online stores).

These days, my collecting has slowed down to a small, unsteady trickle. And, the little I do collect I get online for the most part.

I remember very fondly getting all six 12" Wal-Mart Cantina band members in one fell swoop back in the day- just really good timing when I walked into the store and and they were still in the original brown mailer box to boot! :)

I was a mear 12 years old when the luke wampa came out and I was a dedicated collector that remains today all still mib/moc. However I remember seeing the luke wampa in the sunday sales add and went to target to join the line of scalpers... this was my first experience with these d bags. Doors open and everyone took off running I can remember thinking wow grown adults running for a toy. I make to the aisle getting ready to get the last one when this large land whale decides to push me down to the ground forcefully and grab the last one....... wtf. I then and to this day refuse to ever allow anyone to do that ever again. Force Friday this past year people fighting and pushing children to get everything to scalp met their worst enemy, me. I saw a child get pushed and that was it I was immediately between the scalper and the child and let the child get what he wanted.

Yeah, I do remember coming close to getting in a couple of fights re: these 12" exclusives back in the late '90's.

Your memory of the Target 12" Luke/Wampa two-pack almost mirrors my own memory of this; the first day this set was supposed to go on sale (October 1997), I remember getting to my local Target before it opened and standing at the door, with a handful of other collectors. All of us "power walked" (LOL) to the toy aisle - only to find 0 12" Luke/Wampas. I guess Target wasn't carrying them that day, or people that worked at the store got ahold of them ahead of time. In any case, I searched in vain for this set all of Fall '97, and couldn't find it at all. Fortunately, Hasbro realized the demand & re-released the set a year later, in Fall 1998 - I was able to get this at that time. I also got the 12" Han Solo w/Tauntaun (TRU) and the 6 12" Cantina Band Members (Wal-Mart) when they were re-released in 1998.

In any case, I hated searching for SW toys @ retail (exclusives & otherwise) and am glad I'm barely collecting these days. I have some minimal interest in TFA line, but if I can't find them I won't bust my hump looking for these.

Very nice collection. Your pictures inspired me to get a few more for my collection that I had wanted/passed on (it was a space/price issue with me till I just stopped during episode I. Two acceptations being the luke/leia speeder bikes).

I recently found Bossk in box at goodwill ($8) and a Ep.I lot off eBay... Qui-gon poncho, mace windy, Battle Droid commander and Sebulba. All for like $22 still in boxes. Always wanted the Sebulba!

Good scores - I have most of those figures:

Bossk - one of the best Hasbro 12" figures ever. Great depiction of the character.

Mace Windu Episode 1 figure - this came with a blue lightsaber (since we only knew he had a purple one in Episode II).

Sebulba - this was an extremely HTF figure @ retail. I remember getting this via a trade. Great sculpt.

Battle Droid Commander - though it didn't look that different from the regular Battle Droid (other than some yellow markings), still nice to have this.

This happened to me as well - I remember it was the day before Thanksgiving, 1998. I was shocked to find all 6" 12" Cantina band members all at one time, since I had missed them in Fall 1997 (when they were first released). They obviously re-released them a year later due to demand. Great set! Though I know Sideshow 12" get all the attention these days, these 12" Hasbro figures were affordable, durable, and looked fantastic (for the most part). They did a great job on the alien(s) likeness, though the humans didn't always look that good.

I concur, but I could never understand why they just couldn't keep the same head sculpt for all the human figs, especially Leia. Granted the characters changed with time, but that was no excuse for them to create some hideous ones from the Action Collection series like, Hoth Leia, Carbonite Han and KB 3-Pack Boushh Leia (They redeemed themselves later with the much nicer looking Boushh Leia in the Saga Series). Overall the nice looking figs far outweigh the Fugly ones from the 90's-2000's. I wish I could replace the heads on those and some others, but I can't fathom the thought of opening one up.

I completely agree, not all of the human heads looked that great in the 12" Hasbro line.

However, some exceptional ones were:

Old Obi-wan from ANH (1996) - excellent likeness of Sir Alec Guiness

Han Solo from ANH (1996) - solid likeness of Ford

Jedi Luke (1997 two-pack w/Bib Fortuna; 1998 individually boxed) - excellent likeness here

Princess Leia from ANH (1997) - not a great likeness of Carrie Fisher necessarily, but a good sculpt
