Interviews with Hamill & Figures

On March 21st, 1997 Mark Hamill was still on this Special Edition promo tour when he stopped by The Big Breakfast, Channel 4’s morning interview show in the UK. Throughout the interview, Hamill shares his knowledge of Star Wars toys while showing off some vintage and modern figures and vehicles. Featured in the clip is a Power of the Force 2 Millennium Falcon and X-Wing Fighter as well as a Dagobah Luke figure from the POTF2 line. Also shown is a 12″ vintage Kenner Chewbacca and a minty carded 1978 Luke Skywalker figure.

Now we take you back 17 years in time from the previous clip to an interview with Hamill and Harrison Ford from The Empire Strikes Back press junket. During the premiere of Empire, Eileen Prose (who was the host of the morning talk show Good Day! which we are assuming this is from) spoke with Luke and Han in front of a few Kenner 12″ Large Size action figures. Both Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper remain unnoticed for the entire interview which begins with a three and a half minute montage from Episode IV.
