Dating back to 1978, and following Kenner’s first mail-away redemption (Lot #20), Star Wars action figures began hitting retail shelves. The first twelve, now known as 12 Back-A, were an instant sensation and were followed by two subsequent releases known as 12 Back-B and 12 Back-C. LCG Auctions is proud to present an exclusive offering of the complete run of all twelve of the first-release, 12 Back-A, Star Wars action figures from Kenner. Historically significant, these twelve action figures are credited with helping launch the most iconic toy line of all-time.
No first-release Star Wars collection can be complete without the villainous Death Squad Commander. Our offered example comes on a 12 Back-A card and we were initially puzzled at the 75 subgrade of the card until we finally found the culprit – a tiny horizontal tear along the side of the card about halfway up. There is also a bit of residue inside the bubble near the Commander’s foot and at the base of the stem. Alas, this one is particularly strong for an overall 75 showcasing a clear bubble, strong figure, and aside from the tiny tear, a very strong card. A must-have piece for every collector seeking to complete a 12 Back-A run. Encapsulated by AFA (75, 75-85-85), #11463655
