According to the AFA population data, only 30 examples of the early release Chewbacca “SKU on Figure Stand” have been graded – in contrast to 187 graded examples of the standard Chewbacca 12 Back-A.

AFA 85 is the highest grade assigned to Chewbacca “SKU on Figure Stand”(pop 5). There are none graded higher.

 

Gorgeous ultra high-grade Chewbacca 12-Back A from 1978. This is the highly coveted “SKU on Footer Stand” variant that many collectors believe to be the earliest release of the 12 Back-A card. On the stand beneath his feet, you will find a series of white numbers (SKU). This release is quite a bit rarer than the standard release 12 Back-A. Our unpunched example is in magnificent condition, AFA 85 – there are none graded higher. The card, bubble, and figure are virtually flawless. A very exciting high-end piece of Kenner Star Wars history. Encapsulated by AFA (85, 80-85-85), #18883778
