In 1996, Kenner launched an toy line based on the "Shadows of the Empire" novel by Steve Perry.  The idea was to create a story set between the films "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi".  Toys included action figures and vehicles.  Here is a look at some of the early concepts from Shadows of the Empire.
