Can anyone help me find all the Kenner Toy TV Ads?
Not being a smartaass or anything...
I am a little new to this. You gave me a link to a forum search. I was looking for a place to download them or get a DVD from someone.
I know, but only way to familiarize yourself with this place is to get your feet wet, right?
Search for information on Rikter's release of the Holiday Special. It had close to 100 Kenner commercials on it.
My memory of them is very hazy, but there was one (starting narration: "On board his star destroyer...") that I think had Luke getting tortured by Vader, and then Han on the Falcon swoops in to save the day. This would have been around ESB toy range, probably tying in to the Star Destroyer playset.
I think there was one for Hoth too that was cool. Later on there was a cheesy one with kids racing speeder bikes around the legs of their dining room chairs. Anyone else know what I'm on about?
[And isn't this thread in the wrong section?]
I downloaded an AVI of that speeder bike ad off a.b.sw some time ago, although I think I've deleted it now.

I know there are more out there, and I know they're out there in better quality as well. But so far nobody else has been forthcoming. I've heard about the 8/16mm films in private collections, and I wish the owners would do the honorable thing and telecine them so the rest of the world can enjoy the content without them having to part with their holy grails.
One of the best ones I've seen was on YouTube, a Kenner commercial for the Early Bird box. But quality was about the worst I've ever seen. Does anybody have this one in any sort of decent quality?
