Palitoy Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back Action Figures
Palitoy Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back action figures encapsulate the scenes, characters, and moments from one of the world's all time best loved movies. Palitoy toys ceased production in 1994 and models are now considered very rare collectors' items. In 2015 a Star Wars Episode V Bobba Fett sold for £18,000, setting a record for the price of a single toy at auction. Pristine Palitoy Star Wars Episode V characters therefore make fantastic and highly valuable collectors' items.
Originally packaged Star Wars action figures feature a back card detailing character's back stories. Characters are fastened in the bottom right of the packaging in a clear plastic bubble. In many cases the card backs are a collectable in their own right.
Star Wars Episode V
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is an iconic piece of cinema featuring some of the franchise's best loved scenes, locations, and vehicles. Episode V took Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca to the ice planet Hoth, Cloud City, and Dagobah. The film introduced legendary and much loved characters to the Star Wars universe such as the feared Bounty hunter Bobba Fett, Yoda, and Lando Calrissian.
In addition to the major Star Wars characters Palitoy produced a range of unnamed characters such as rebel fighters, stormtroopers in Hoth assault or classic armour, Bespin guards, and Wampas.
As well as producing characters from the films, the Palitoy action figures range features a number of iconic Star Wars vehicles and space ships. Luke Skywalker's X Wing, Han Solo's Millennium Falcon , and Bobba Fett's Slave One are all available. Bobba Fett's Slave One can also feature a carbonite frozen Han Solo. In addition there are a number of Empire vehicles such as Tie Fighters and AT AT walkers, and Rebel Alliance vehicles such as Snow Speeders and Troop Transports.
