The facts and archive of collecting star wars toys and memorabilia; preferably vintage star wars.

This figure is quite unique because it was released in 1979, before the actual Empire Strikes Back came out. A major variation is that it was originally designed to have a jet pack with launchable rocket but after Battle Star Galactaca product choking hazards, this feature was removed. Although only prototypes exist, you can find informational written memorabilia of the product feature's removal and now the figure has a solid jet pack. So watch out for fakes and reproductions. Also this product has a color variation and sculpting variation between the tri-logo series and the regular "one logo" series. This figure can be worth a ton at full AFA grade and in package so keep your eyes peeled.
