Kenner Cameo – Action Figure Variant Covers

Marvel Comics has been showing Star Wars action figures a lot of love lately with their steady release of variant covers for their Star Wars comic books. The artist John Tyler Christopher has depicted 5 covers to date with one more announced so far. Each “Action Figure Variant” cover features a figure from the first 12 Kenner figures released. Both the cardback and figure illustrations are not meant to be exact replications of the vintage figures but have a very close ascetic to the originals to justify their inclusion in our Kenner Cameo Chronology.
