Mark Boudreaux has been at the helm of Kenner's "Star Wars" toys since the beginning. He is credited for designing the Millenium Falcon toy for the release of "The Empire Strikes Back."

Kenner had signed on to produce the toys just a couple months before it was released. Early plans focused on the most obvious characters, such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Princess Leia, but fans took a shine to some of the more obscure and strange characters, too. “I think it became quickly apparent that this was a world that was just more than a half a dozen figures,” he said in an interview around the 40th anniversary of the movie’s release. “This was a world of countless characters, and every time there was a character that was on screen, we thought, ‘You know, this is a story that needs to be told, and the best way for us to tell this story is to immortalize this character in plastic.’”
