If your talking about pre-1985 figures, I might have a guide for you.
I cannot find it anymore. Perhaps I have it on my hard drive. It was a picture of all the weapons, and each was labeled. I wish I could remember that URL...www.galstar.com/mmiller or something like that.
For me, the X-mas of 1986 was probably the biggest SW I had.
My parents bought all my stuff at KayBee Toys. 3 for $.99 I think was the price on the figures. Anyways, X-mas of 86, I got:
Ewok Village Playset
(had X-Wing, Y-Wing, Vader's TIE)
I cannot remember anything else now. That was also the year I lost the belief in Santa Claus. I had been playing in the basement and found all the boxes.
