Highest Graded Example.

 Stunning, ultra high-grade dual-sided Empire Strikes Back “Bell” Store Display from 1981.  Often referred to as “Bell” because of their bell-shape, these bright red displays were created to introduce the second wave of figures for the Empire Strikes Back line.  They were intended to hang from above retail displays and catch the eye of customers.  According to SWCA, only 1344 were produced and it’s fair to say that only a small handful have survived the decades, as evidenced by AFA’s latest published population report listing only 10 graded examples.  Please note that photo 2 shows a piece of paper beneath the foot of the Rebel Commander that we overlooked in the photoshoot.  We brushed it off and added an updated photo (photo 3) to show the paper is not on the actual piece.  

As we approach July 16th, we expect high-end display collectors to keep a close eye on this stunning AFA 90 (gold) showstopper.  Approximately 18 x 1.5 x 20.5 inches.  Encapsulated by AFA (90), #18763566


Est. $15,000 - $25,000
