I forgot all about this.... I dug this up after getting my red bar recently.

I spotted carded examples of the R5-D4 with the extra red bar! Smile

At least on some ROTJ 77A card backs with HG factory code:

This was AFA (#12616108) graded and stated as 77A (on Brians Toys):

Another example with closeup and back photo (theepictoycompany):

Finally some MOC pics! Well done Jay, that at least gives a possible time line and origin. Possibly a later variant then?

Nice find Chop-Chop!, So it's seriously looking like this is a 77athing, I am going to assume the normal version can also be found on a 77A as well as this was a very coomon card where as this is not a common figure.... Anyone got a 77A with the standard R5? Also, R5 appeared on the 79B card so it would be nice to see if he appeared on that card as well.

It's great that these figures with the extra red bar can be traced back to Kader during ROTJ Cool
