By the time the Droids and Ewoks action figures were released in Canada, the Star Wars line of toys was quickly losing steam. To keep production costs low, Kenner Canada sealed the first release of Droids figures on generic Droids cardbacks as seen here. The names of the individual figures were not even printed on the cards. Canada did not receive all of the generally released Droids action figures that could be found in the U.S. and other countries at the time the Droids and Ewoks animated series was being broadcast on television. Some notable Droids absentees from the action figure aisle in Canadian stores included Tig Fromm, Sise Fromm, Boba Fett and the A-Wing Pilot.
The Droids and Ewoks animated series has a close relationship with Canada. Both series, as well as the animated introduction of Boba Fett in the Star Wars Holiday Special were created by the talented people at Nelvana, based in Toronto, Ontario.
