Hello everybody ,

I finally could get this green background Darth Vader case insert and would like to know more about it... it has ROTJ figures so I guess it is from the ROTJ release version of the case but what I like the most of it is that it has Lili Ledy’s Burgandy Cape Bib Fortuna and the first two last 17 Ewok figures Smile) Is this insert really rare ? Is it the one that came with Lili Ledy Vader’s case ?? Its been a while that I wanted to get and paid a fortune for it , almost $35 USD Sad( Was it worth it ? Honestly I like it so much but I paid more than twice of what I was thinking but since I rarely see it I went for it , should I feel bad about it ?? Look forward to your comments !! Thanks !!

Hey there, the Vader case Insert you have is the one that came with the KENNER US RotJ Case in 1983. It shows 65 figures. Later that year a case was released (the last one) with a 77er Insert.

On the wrap around cardboard it should read "Collect all 65". I have no idea why a burgundy bib is on there, but chances are it was a prototype of some kind that was taken to the photographers studio? Maybe other collectors know more about that subject.

Not sure if you are after putting a complete Vader Case together so I have enclosed a pic of mine; it used to be sealed but sadly the tape came loose - so here is a look into a complete case :-)

The "burgundy Bib" in the picture is actually a rare Kenner red cape prototype Bib http://theswca.com/index.php?action=disp_item&item_id=48822 he was used for Kenner photography and you can also see him on the 77 back cardbacks  Very Happy

Hi, could you show me a picture of the back of that sleeve? There were supposed to be two versions of the ROTJ case - a 65bk and 77 (or79)bk version, but I have never seen a 77/79bk sleeve and have a theory that it was only the insert and sticker sheet that was different. Does yours have 65 figures on the back?

Thanks,
Pat

hey pat, same here, i have never seen a 77 back. the one in my pics a 65er.
I think your theory is very likely - and might (???) also apply to the C-3PO Case - there is a 65er and a 77er insert, but up to now I have only seen 65er sleeves.

Have you at least seen a Vader 77 (or 79) Insert? Course I havent either (not the sleeve nor the insert)

It is mentioned on http://theswca.com by Ron Salvatore in his list though.
Thats why I mentioned it.
