One of my TOP 10 from my entire collection !!!! (This will be Prob#7 out of 10)


Here we have a common ROTJ 65 Back-A , Because the ROTJ Action figures went out before the moive , Lucas decide that he didn´t want anybody to see.............well I guess everybody knows the story .....
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Concur10

Here we have a ROTJ Squid Head BACK65-B AFA80, in the back it only appears 2 ewoks (Logray & Chief Chirpa)

Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Sq65b10

Here we have a ROTJ Squid Head Back 77A AFA80, in the back we found now 4 ewoks ( Wicket, Teebo, Logray & Chief Chirpa)
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Sq77a10

Here we have another ROTJ Squid Head Back 77A AFA80...but this one made in Mexico..so you can notice the variations (CAPE: in this one, same color but different material)
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Sq77am11

Now, we have the ROTJ Wicket W. Warrick Back77A AFA85, the weapon is located on the left side of the bubble and it´s rounded , so it fits the staff , during the early production of the ROTJ Wicket W. Warrick Back77A the weapon was located in the other side ( I don´t have an example of that one, ( I´m about to buy one!) but there are many pics out there of what I´m talking about.
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Ww77ba10

Here we have a POTF Wicket W. Warrick Back92 AFA80 with COA from the Lucasfilms Licensing Archives, as far as I know all POTF´s Wicket W. Warrick´s have the weapon on the left side with the same Bubble ( rounded in the tip so it fits the Staff).
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Wwb92c10

Here goes this lovely combination......
Wicket W. Warrick on a ROTJ Squid Head 65BACK-A MISCARD AFA 80,
•This item originates from a former Kenner employee. It is a packaging Test-Shot for the Wicket W. Warrick figure. Wicket, being one of the smallest figures in the line and one of the few with weapons that stand taller than the figure, required a new and unique blister to be made. His debut was on the 77-Back cards in 1983 and the first wave had a squared blister with the weapon placed on the right. Immediately following, his blister was changed to be more rounded with the weapon on the left. Prior to the 77-Backs release, this newly completed Wicket figure was affixed to a 65-Back-A Squid Head card in a test of the blister. This squared blister is similar to the early 77-Back release but is taller overall with a taller weapon-stem. Also, the color variation of this action figure and the accessories are notable from the rest of the production ( Darker brown).
*Please Note* Wicket W. Warrick never appeared on a 65-Back card as stated before, nor was in production at the time of the 65-Back releases.

This is the only example of its kind.
Enjoy.......

Shocked That darker brown Wicket from the packaging test/miscard is awesome. I wonder if that is the HK figure?

Awesome figures. Nice history lesson too-very cool hearing what happened behind the scenes with these figures. It makes perfect sense now why you wanted to show each piece of your collection separately.

Nice job!! :clap:

One of my main goals is to have every single back from common action figures, or at least the 4 cards ( SW, ESB ROTJ & POTF )

So here we have IG-88.....

KENNER ESB 32 BACK A AFA80
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Ig88_010

KENNER ESB 41 BACK E AFA85

Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Ig88_011

KENNER ESB 45 BACK AFA80 ( Not the best pic!)
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Ig88_012

KENNER ROTJ 77 BACK A AFA80
Merlin Collection.....updated JULY/2014...PAGE 13..First group shot ever!!...... - Page 2 Ig88_013


During this week I will put what I consider my #8 #9 & #10 from my collection.

1st of May , Raffle day = #1 Of my Collection ( Talking about carded figures , For me , this could be only the 2nd rarest behind the 1979 New York Toy Fair carded Boba fett Firing Rocket, and still that one has been opened!! ), It´s more common to see a VLIX or any Vader/Kenobi DT´s than this one! ...
