Anybody have an idea what one of these go for (or are worth) in AFA 80 or 85 condition?

Thanks,
Matt

Takara imported figures and slapped takara stickers on the cardback. The pic is to small to blow up and see the coo, but I am guessing it is a no coo figure that someone has drilled a hole in and is calling it a takara. There does not exist a Han Solo with a screw in the rear to my knowledge.

I really hope so. 
Cause I missed out on this auction of a Lot set of figs. 

I just zoomed in to that one pic and saw it. Curiosity got the best of me. That's why I was asking so quick. LoL 

I had my fingers crossed and hoping that was legit.

You saved yourself some cash. The only confirmed takara figures are the c3po, Vader , and stormtrooper with the screw in the back and Japan coo. The r2 is a wind up toy that was released and has a Japan coo, it was bagged except for the ones in Canada which can be found carded. There are takara cardbacks which where Kenner figures imported and a sticker was placed on it. They imported the original 12 and did this with them prior to making their own figures. The takara Japan coo Vader I think is found on a 12 back with a white background while the regular (Hong Kong) Vader is found with a yellow/orange background like the regular Vader. The takara Japan coo stormtrooper has a few tells and it has been a while since I read up, but believe they have fatter hips. The c3po takara Japan coo figure has a different head. All three are able to be distinguished from their Kenner imported counterparts, though the stormtrooper is the hardest one to do so if I remember right.

Of course the takara wind up r2 is easily distinguished as it is the only wind up r2. There are three coo markings for it, but I don't think the one released in Canada was exclusive to Canada. I am not quite sure of how it came to be carded as I never tracked the history, but most likely it was imported from Japan to Canada and not produced in Canada, but again I didn't research it out so can not confirm that 100%.

Here are a few pics from a quick Google search. You can see the differences.
