Best Star Wars Ad Ever


So I was reading a Man From Atlantis comic to my son ( how this kid is popular with a dad like me I'll never know ) and we came to this ad. This one really took me back to a time when Star Wars was all shiny and new, ads like this served as your action figure checklist. The art, provided by the Kubert school is also wonderfully slightly off model, love it!

Oh and German superstar "Hans Solo" is awesome.

I love this ad, everytime I see it, it takes me back to a simpiler time when the Stars Wars was young, and Hans was king of the world!

Is Ben Kenobi setting up for a golf swing or what?

Heh, love the near-literal depiction of the Kenner Obi-Wan figure's plastic "robe". Makes him look like some sort of elderly vampire from the Marvel comics of the time.
