The Tsukuda line is the least expensive, and the hardest to spot from the front LOL

It's essentially a Kenner figure MOC with a sticker on the back. So from behind, it's impossible not to notice. From the front, impossible to tell. Most collectors will sell them as a Tsukuda so they should be easy to spot but on Ebay it might say "Japanese Star Wars".

Pricing isn't crazy at all. I sold a Klaatu recently sub $50 and bought a nice Bib Fortuna for sub $50. Not C10's but very nice. Avoid the nuts who think they are worth hundreds and you can stay in the $40-$80 range consistantly.

As for how many, I know there is a list somewhere. I'll look


EDIT - According to an article I read on RS, there are 21 Tsuksuda. It's the first 20 ROTJ Figures + Darth Vader.

I've personally never seen a Vader with a Tsukuda sticker before.

Here's a pic of what the sticker looks like. Like John said, unless you see the back they are impossible to spot from the front, as there is nothing different about them on the front.

Most common from what I've seen are Ree-Yees, Klaatu, Bib Fortuna and Squidhead. Occasionally you'll see a Rebel Commando pop up. But I haven't seen one in awhile. And before I saw John's edit, I had no ideas there were 21 of them! Smile

Hi John.

Would you able to post a link to RS where the article is?

I was quite surprised on how much you paid...and the average costs. I was working with a seller who had a Luke one for a lot more. But the ex wife stepped in and stopped the deal (I suppose it is half hers - Dam! Sad ).

Perhaps though if Tsukuda Luke Jedi are actually much more cheaper then it was a good thin for me

[quote=Pedro12345]No, there's 21 I believe - the whole 65-back debut series + Yoda, 3PO RL, R2, Vader

I'm 7 away from set if anyone has Lando Skiff, Boushh, Luke Jedi, Yoda, R2 or Vader [/quote]
