The Empire Strikes Back Wave 2 (1980)

The first wave of toys to hit the store shelves after the release of The Empire Strikes Back, the second wave of Empire toys was able to reveal the vitally important character of Yoda (which was also the smallest of the original Kenner Star Wars figures, smaller than even R2-D2, Wicket, or the Jawas). Technically, Yoda was released in the first wave of figures, but was not promoted heavily to preserve the surprise of the character’s nature in the film.

Also included were two new variations on the Stormtrooper figure, in the form of the TIE Figther and AT-AT Pilots. And like the original Stormtroopers, their heads did not pivot.
