Even if I grew up with ROTJ and Tri-Logo packages in the stores, I always felt something extra for the classic Kenner SW 12 backs when I
started to collect, maybe because of the coolness of the characters combined with the superb design of the package. I´m not into AFA, so basically I have tried to find some decent non-graded Kenner (USA) pieces. I can´t say it´s a hard run to complete, since they all turn-up frequently, but to find nice non-graded examples is a little bit harder. I completed the run early 2009 and I still working with my display and collecting room. Aiming to finish it during this year. Very Happy

Nice collection, hard to find ones that haven't be resealed, without get done for cost.

I only have 3PO and a Jawa 12-back - man, I'd love to get a few more. They seem so pricey these days on eBay.

My childhood was all about 12-backs on the shelves, so this group really hits me square in the forehead. Jaw-dropping excellent collection!
