This item is “hobby fresh” and part of a single-owner collection made available for the very first time. In the late 1970’s, our consignor was a manager at a West Coast department store chain called Fedco. With Star Wars mania already underway, he secured a handful of action figures from the back of the store before they hit shelves (and before they were punched and price tagged). He had the foresight to keep the collection stored away and sealed in their original packages for almost 45 years. The result is a fantastic, fresh-to-market collection, most with amazing color – all unpunched and without stickers!

Unpunched Jawa on 20 Back-A card from 1978. Strong front of card with only minor imperfections. Outstanding color. Two light horizontal veins near the top of each edge. No creases or edgewear. No price tag sticker. Punch is partially detached from card as seen in photos. Reverse is flawless – no creases, veins, or surface wear. Bubble is crystal clear with only minor imperfections on the stem. No lifting whatsoever. Weapon is firmly attached to side of the bubble by original tape. Brilliant “90” Jawa action figure within! A nice single-owner example available for the very first time!  Encapsulated by AFA (80, 80-80-90), #12083516
