Mail-Away: Anakin Skywalker

The last free figure offer before the original Star Wars line died was Anakin Skywalker. The figure is based on the spirit form seen at the end of the movie. The latest DVD release changed that though when they replaced the original actor with Hayden Christensen who played Anakin in the Prequels. The figure was technically only available in the U.S. from the mail promotion. He was released in other countries in the Tri-Logo packaging and the Power of the Force packaging with the coin. A lot of people must have participated in the promotion though because lose figures can easily be found in lots on ebay. The figure required 5 proofs of purchase and expired on May 30th, 1985. Here is the offer as it appeared on the back of the cards

 

Here is mine with the mailer box and catalog

No T.V. commercial has surfaced advertising the figure. This was near the tail end of the original Star Wars figure line, so probably one was never created.
