(KCEN) -- Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia have finally made their way into the National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester, New York.
A national selection committee chose Star Wars action figures from among twelve finalists.
They beat out the most ancient and modern toys from the list.
In 1978, the toys went on the market after the release of the first movie the year before.
Museum officials are saying the toys' phenomenal popularity extends to adults who continue to collect them.
So far, 49 toys have made the cut, classics like Play-Doh and Slinky included.
