I'm a parent or grand parent purchasing a gift for a child which of these Star Wars action figure lines do you recommend?
If the child you are intending to give a gift to is 10 or younger and a Star Wars fans we recommend either the Galaxy of Adventures line or MicroForce for smaller children. These are primarily the newer characters from the Star Wars series and the figure is specifically designed to be played with. If the child is 11 or older, well there is a phrase that the best written Sci-Fi is what you read when you were 12, then I actually recommend you check out our Star Wars The Black Series line. The diversity will appeal more to them and while its a little pricier these tend to turn from "play to display" better as the child ages.
What is Galaxy of Adventures?
Galaxy of Adventures is a 5-Inch Star Wars line with exaggerated facial and limb features that are designed for heavy use by children. This line is designed by Hasbro and really "ideal" for 5-8 even though its kid safe over 3 years of age. It contains all the newest figures which if you have not caught the recent Star Wars Saga you probably may need some help finding. You can search by "Series" from the link above or simply click this one for all our Galaxy of Adventures line.
What is the Bouny Collection?
In a proper noun: Baby Yoda!. This is a 2.5 inch line of collectible figurines from Hasbro featuring The Child aka Baby Yoda in various scenes from Star Wars The Mandalorian. These are highly collectible and as several customers who have had to come back and buy the same item again have told us highly pilferable from office desks. These are just beyond extra cute in terms of appearance and very reasonably priced at around $10 a piece. Wave 1 for season 1 of the Disney+ series The Manadalorian is scheduled for 6 different figures.
Are the legacy carded figures used or new?
The are new everything sold on KeengaToys.com is a new product we purchased either from the manufacturer or an authorized US distributor. Currently beyond The Vintage Collection, Hasbro has no published plans to create a new 3.75-Inch line so these may well become very collectible and sought after.
What are the 40th ESB Figures?

What happened to Wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Empire Strikes Back Series?
Long story short the boxes for the Wave pack was simply too narrow and somewhere in there quality control took an epic fall worse than the Great Jedi Republic. Quantities were mispacked and roughly have the cards were smushed. Most distributors have extended discounts to retailers on the products. We have excluded except for the R2-D2 all the sub-standard cards ..you can buy here with confidence.
