This pack is owned by Nigo owner and creator of A Bathing Ape. He has one of the biggest Star Wars collections.

This is my 1st time ever seeing or hearing about one of these! Just how rare is this 7 Pack?




Also his Focus on Fett is pretty awesome. In the pic below he has EVERY Boba Fett Variant Card Back (Except for Droids). This is a pretty epic photo.

Below is a Video of Nigo's Collection. It's a old video so it's probably not updated with all the newer things he's added.

June, here is a little bit of information on them in this page. I don't know how rare they are. http://web.ncf.ca/cn333/esbfigs.htm

The page indicates that these were sears Canada packs so I am unsure if they were also released in the US. This was the pack from sears Canada that came with the skinwrapped figures on generic cardbacks so seeing as the pictured one doesn't have one of those, but rather has the exclusive lobot on a regular card it is possible the set is either a mixed set or that these were also issued in the US with standard cardbacks.

The vaccuform figures (what you're calling shrinkwrapped) are beyond rare. Very few examples of each. Bryan alluded to the recent auction of an R2D2 that sold for $3600.

The sets are probably just as rare or rarer!!

John, the one June shows has all figures on regular production cards. Were these released this way or does that mean the set is most likely mixed up? I know that the skinwrapped figures were exclusive to Sears Canada only so if these seven packs came out elsewhere maybe they were all regular carded figures? :scratch:
