The term Power of the Force was not widely recognized in Germany in 1985. The "last 17" figures did not introduce the POTF card with collectors coin but, as all over Europe, were available on tri-logo cards. But the term "Power of the Force" appeared in a German translation, too. Parker, the distributor of the Kenner toys in Germany, in 1985 sold sets with already released toys/figures in "Die Kraft der Macht" package for a special price. These were the only packages that had a Power of the Force logo solely in German. Only SW/ESB/ROTJ toys/figures were sold in this package, probably to sell off stock.

The German Kenner/Parker dealers catalog from 1985 listed these vehicles and figures sets as special offers. Besides the Speeder Bike all vehicles sets had Mini-Rigs or accessories in their boxes. The figures in the vehicles packs are not always the ones listed in the dealer catalogs but have some kind of association to the Mini-Rigs and accessories .

Collectors remark: The glueing method that was used to attach the bubbles to the cards seems not to be long-lasting. Many sets show separating of bubble and card often without any damage to the cardboard. The sets themselves are very rare and it's even harder to find one with still perfectly attached bubble. An exception seems to the Speeder Bike set where separating does not occur that easily.

"Die Kraft der Macht" figures sets:

The figures sets included three carded figures wrapped in cardboard. According to the dealer advertising flyer the packs had movie themes:

  • SW - Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo
  • ESB - Stormtrooper, Luke X-Wing Pilot, AT-AT Commander
  • ROTJ - Rancor Keeper, Emperor, Han Trenchcoat
  • Ewocks - Chief Chirpa, Logray, Wicket

  • The advertising flyer explicitly lists these sets but actually the sets had different assortments. It can be observed though that in general they contain figures only from one of the movies so the theme character was followed as described. A set that comes with the same characters more often is the Ewocks set with Wicket, Logray and Chief Chirpa.
    The 1985 Kenner Parker catalog shows 12 different figures sets as an example for one case assortment (12 sets, Item # 260145). PIC

    Collectors remark: The figures occure on ROTJ or tri-logo cards.

    Set of AT-ST Driver, Bib Fortuna, Boba Fett

    Besides of the dealers catalog there also exists a flyer advertising for these packs:
