    Default Question about these SW figures

    Does anyone know what year these are from? There are no dates on the bottom of the figures.

    Unless its a re-release this looks to be a series of Kenner figures as early as 1978 to 1980.

    Ben Kenobi looks to be 1978
    Both Tusken Raiders (Sand people) would be 1978
    And Bossk is 1980

    Ben Kenobi looks to be missing the lightsaber potion of the toy and that's unsurprising given that many at this point in time don't.
    The Sand people are also missing a jacket (a thing Kenner commonly used to represent capes and robes)
    Bossk seems to be missing his blaster

    Didn't the originals have the date stamped on the bottom of the figures though?

    It can vary with some of them being featured inside or around the cape/coat. The Sandpeople may very well possess that feature but Bossk and Ben don't.

    However it's also equally possible that these are actually Chinese and not actual Kenner products. They would have them (typically) along the back of the legs with a printing of COO (Country of origin) and the year the figure was produced. If it reads China and produced between 1977-78 it's a fake or an unlawful production. Most figures are produced in Hong Kong with some produced in Taiwan during the original run.

    These figures don't have any markings on them at all. No dates, no country it was made in. Nothing.

    I just can't figure them out.

    I hate to say it but there might not be an answer as to why they lack them and the business decision to forgo them. As it turns out, it is a problem on a lot of Kenner Starwars.

    Ben Kenobi and the Sandpeople do have runs that just don't but are probably no older than 1978.
    Bossk had a problem where between Latin America and Europe they would sometimes forgo that detail and even the accompanying card didn't help to alleviate dates as it was produced in other countries at different times. It basically means that Bossk is particularly difficult to gauge a date for.
