Can anyone share, or direct me to, some interesting information about the12 Backs with the Takara sticker on the front?

I picked up a pretty rough R2-D2 MOC at a toy show like 20 years ago, and I haven't found out much about them since then - though to be honest I haven't done much research on them until today.

I had never seen one in person before when I bought it, and I haven't seen too many of them over the years, but then I searched here and found this crazy badass collection from Mark_Yeo:

https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4546-takara-12-backs-completed?highlight=takara+sticker

:I am stupid:

Mind is blown.

My R2 looks just like the one in Mark's top photo, bottom-left, except mine looks like someone folded the card over twice to stick it in a box or a pocket or something, then did a really good job of flattening it back out straight.

If anyone can direct me to the approximate value range for each of these, but particularly R2, that would be awesome.

I know they're basically the same as U.S. Kenners, except there's 10, and there's a few variations, but I want to know all I can about these for some reason.

Crazy technical stuff, to personal stories..

What'cha got?

From what I know, there most commonly found Takara 12 backs are on 12B backs. All 10 of mine are on 12B backs. However, some figures have been seen on 12A backs as well - notably Leia and Ben. The 3 figure sculpt variants that are peculiar to the Takara line were all found only on 12C backs.

The 3 Takara sculpt variants are Vader (with white background), C3PO (with the edges around the head) and Stormtrooper (which is shorter and have a wider leg stance).

I think that the price range for the 13 MOC at about AFA80 standard is about:-

1. USD2000 for Han
2. USD2000 for Chewie
3. USD1700 for Ben
4. USD 1700 for Luke
5. USD1500 for Vader (Takara variant)
6. USD1100 for Tusken
7. USD1000 for Stormtrooper (Takara variant)
8. USD900 for C3PO (Takara variant)
9. USD900 for Leia
10. USD800 for Vader
11. USD700 for R2
12. USD700 for Stormtrooper
13. USD600 for C3PO

For items 1 to 4, it may be +/- USD500.

Cheers, Mark

A wealth of information from the man with THE collection!

I appreciate the break down.

Cheers Mark,

I also meant to ask what the mold variants were on the figures....

C-3PO...screwback and/or big head
Stormtrooper...screwback

The rest??
