As amazing at it may seem, and despite there are dozens of Star Wars vintage figures books written, there appear to be not many websites offering reviews of these figures with some analysis, at least that we could find.

Rebelscum is one of the most, if not the most, wide database on the net for Star Wars Action Figures, and as such, it has a complete section devoted to Kenner figures offering reviews and analysis of the figures and their variations. It is not as deep as we have seen in other websites for modern figures but worth using as a source of knowledge.

Score:  5/5 – Top10!

The number of variants / combinations of card fronts and cardbacks for vintage Star Wars action figures is huge and it is easy to be lost on what exists and what does not. The Kellerman’s book about Vintage SW Figures had some matrices which http://www.rebelscum.com posted in their website some time ago making a call for the global collecting community to contribute helping further complete the matrices, as there are yet combinations/variants which are believed to exist but not confirmed. Whether you are new or experienced to collecting Vintage SW blisters these matrices for Front-Back variations and Proof Cards are a very powerful tool to understand what you have and what else exists out there.

Use the link above for the http://www.rebelscum.com article, you can directly download the matrices here:
