Toy Expo 98 Exclusive Oola Figure Autographed by Femi Taylor

February 18, 2012

This is a figure that was exclusive to the 1998 Toy Expo in Philadelphia. Well, the figure itself is just the normal Power of the Force Oola and Salacious Crumb from Hasbro, but a cover has been attached to it so that it can be opened like a book. Opening the cover reveals an autographed photo of Femi Taylor (who played Oola both in the original film and the Special Edition that came out in 1997). I believe the figure was originally only available as a mailaway offer, so they must have worked something out with Kenner to get 1,000 of them for this promotion.

I’m not a fan of autographing action figures in general. It actually can detract from the value of the figure in many cases, and you usually can’t see the signature very well compared to an autographed photo. But this is a bit of an exception, since it’s a product that was sold this way. It’s wasn’t expensive and I didn’t have a Femi Taylor autograph, so I figured, why not? I do intend to get an autographed photo to frame as well at some point, though.
