Introduction

Star Wars and Kenner revolutionised the action figure industry with the popularisation of the 3 3/4 inch action figure. From the shipping of the first Early Bird Certificate Package in 1977 to the Droids and Ewok line of figures and accessories in 1985, to light sabers and X-wings, Star Wars and Kenner were able to create an empire of merchandising.

The 3 3/4 figure was much less expensive to produce than the industry standard 12 inch action figure, in addition it was possible to create a line of accessories the size and variety of which illustrates its uniqueness. This produced a few effects that dramatically changed the toy industry.
