Relive Star Wars Through All of the Original 1977 Toy Adverts

By Andrew Liszewski on at

You’ll have a newfound appreciation for the vast selection of Star Wars toys on shop shelves these days after spending the next 15 minutes watching every last advert for the original collection that was available back in 1977 for A New Hope.

Not only has YouTuber Eric Stran collected and edited all of the ads into one long compilation, he’s also gone to the trouble of placing them all in scene order so it’s kind of like watching Star Wars all over again—except with cheesy music and more kids than you remember.

It’s also fun to try and imagine what every last toy in this compilation would be worth today if they were all still mint in the box. You’d probably be able to retire and have more than enough free time to edit old toy adverts together. [YouTube]
