Hey guys,

I have searched a ton over the past week trying to figure out where the Bespin Leia baggies originated from.

I know she came in 2 baggie types:
ESB-A
ESB-C
The ESB-C has examples of both a crew neck and a turtle neck.

I also have found that she was found in baggies in the following multi-pack(thanks to theswca):

  • Sears 9 Pack [#49-59035]
  • Montgomery Ward 4 Pack [#48-24512]
  • JC Penny 4 Pack [#928-0496] * Same as Spiegel 4 Pack
  • Spiegel 4 Pack [#57 T 4571] * Same as JC Penny 4 Pack


Does anyone know what baggie versions any of those packs she was shipped in????  A? C (crew or turtle)?
Does anyone have any of those packs that possibly could take a look for me please?

cheers and as always, thanks!
Very Happy

EDITED BY psybertech 10/23/2013:
after going back and forth with Frank (frunkstar), there currently is no evidence that a turtle neck LB was found in an ESB-C. Furthermore, my ESB-C turtle neck is a fake. Sad

I would suggest that Frank (frunkstar) would be a good person to contact. If you don't get an answer here, send him a pm Jay.

Hi Jay,

Leia Bespin could be found in a total of 6 U.S. Catalogue multipacks:

Montgomery Ward - 4 Pack - 48-24512 - 1980
JC Penney - 10 Pack - 928-0439 - 1980
JC Penney - 4 Pack - 928-6496 - 1980
Spiegal - 4 Pack - 57-4871 - 1980
Sears - 9 Pack - 49-59035 - 1980
JC Penney - 4 Pack - 655-1659 - 1982

I know you've listed most of them, but they are there again anyway Very Happy 

The JC Penney 10 Pack (928-0439) From 1980, I can confirm that the Bespin Leia in this set came with the ESB-C baggie and the Crewneck Leia
The Sears 9 Pack (49-59035) from 1980, I can also confirm (on several examples) that again, the Bespin Leia came packed in the ESB-C baggie and also the Crewneck Leia.

Not to sure about the others though Jay, hope this helps.

Hey Alex,

Thanks for the other two and for helping on the types for two of them!

The 10 pack was one I heard of before but couldn't find a reference anywhere including THESWCA... well, unless I just overlooked it somehow.

Thanks again, mate!

cheers!
Very Happy

I knew I was missing something, The JC Penney 4 Pack (655-1659) from 1982 (her last appearance), I can confirm she came in the ESB-A baggie and it was the turtle neck figure that was used.

I know it probably goes without saying, but these are just examples I've seen, it's likely that this wasn't a set routine, I've seen multipack examples before featuring several different baggie types in one set, so who knows, but hey it's a start Very Happy
