There are tons of them on Ebay and I can't figure out heads or tails. China, Hong Kong, Taiwan. Holy cow this is confusing. I can't really tell when they were issued either. I would like the earliest I can get. In decent shape.

The earliest figures were Hong Kong. I don't know that one came before another as both 2 and 3 line coo markings are found in early bird kits if I remember correctly. These will also be blonde haired Lukes. The brown hair came later. The information you seek may be found by researching for early bird Luke's and may be in the figure of the week section on Luke we have here.

If you buy a Taiwan Luke farmboy you will know it is only SW era, all others could have been found ESB onwards.

Looks good but the saber does not look like a Taiwan saber
