I would believe so. Are there differences between the two you're talking about? Takara was the early licensee for Star Wars toys in Japan, so both would have been made by Takara.

I believe the first Takara's were only promotional - given to cast and crew by Kurtz and Lucas.

I got mine from a dealer who got Kurtz' collection in the 80s (after he left george) but he couldn't tell me if it was the promo or retail version.

I'm London at the mo with misses' family. I try and get you a few pics of my baggie this Sunday mate - what views would you like?.

Just a front and back view would be cool, so it kinda matches the Canadian R2 vid setup Smile

Thanks for the pics Rob. I was wondering about the distinction. I'm just speculating, but I bet you'll find both of those in baggies. They were both made by Takara just one lacks the company stamp.

I believe it is Stu who has a Takara focus, so maybe he knows for sure.

Thats the canadian one though, the one released in Japan didn't come on card it was bagged. There was quite a debate to the figure itsself and whether it was shipped from Japan to Canada...for anyone who cares to read some of it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB1&Number=2106769&Forum=f1&Words=wind-up&Searchpage=0&Limit=25&Main=2106769&Search=true&where=bodysub&Name=&daterange=1&newerval=1&newertype=&olderval=&oldertype=&bodyprev=#Post2106769
