2010 Mexican Vintage Collection Saga Legends SL06 Running Change Darth Vader front

Description: Vader is obsessed with finding the young Rebel who destroyed the Death Star, believing him to be the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. Following up on a probe droid lead, Vader identifies the Rebel base on Hoth but arrives too late, as the last of the Rebels flee Echo Base.

Comments: This is described as a running change variant, where different figure is swapped for the original production figure part way through a production run. Compare to the first SL06 Vader. This example was produced for the Mexican market, as evidenced by the language sticker on the front of the card.

2011 US San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Vintage Collection Revenge of the Jedi VC08 Darth Vader

2011 US San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Revenge of the Jedi VC08 Darth Vader front

Description: Return of the Jedi was a powerful conclusion to this epic saga of good versus evil. The whole world knows this film by its current title, which evokes the glorious return of the hero. But during filming, the movie was slated to be called Revenge of the Jedi. Merchandise was developed based on this title, including Kenner action figure packaging. Then, late in production, there was a dramatic change. Shortly before the film was released, George Lucas decided the title should be Return of the Jedi. The final title carries a more appropriate emotional tone because, of course, a Jedi would not seek revenge.

To celebrate this monumental film and unique history of its title, we have created special packages of favorite characters from the movie, feature the Revenge of the Jedi title. May the Force be with you!

They’re not simply excess figures from the same batch but have different datestamps on the back. Compare to the same figure with the Boba Fett offer.
