1999 European Power of the Force 2 Darth Vader with Interrogation Droid front

Description: A generation has passed since young Anakin Skywalker began his epic journey as a Jedi appprentice… The evil Empire has destroyed all remnants of the Old Republic and cast a shadow of oppression over the entire galaxy. Amid the darkness, a simple farm boy named Luke Skywalker ignites  the resistant Rebel Alliance with the power of the Force to become the new hope for the restoration of the free galaxy!

Comments: European versions of the 1999 Power of the Force 2 figures included “CommTalk” chips rather than CommTech chips, allowing the characters to recite lines from the movies via the use of CommTech readers.

1983 European 65-D back Darth Vader on Chewbacca cardback

1983 European 65-D back Palitoy Darth Vader on Chewbacca Cardback

Comments: The 65D card has the same front as the first Jedi release, the 45C card, which makes it quite different from the other 65-back cards. The most noticeable difference is that the age warning in the top right corner is in English only, rather than in five languages like the 65A,B and C cards. The Return of the Jedi logo also sits lower on the front of the card, so there is no black border beneath this. The back of the card is identical to that of the 65c card, featuring the mail away offer for the Chewbacca Bandolier figure holder.

Like the 65c card, this card can be found with the closing date for the bandolier offer blacked out (the cardback above is one such example).

The only figures seen on this card are from the Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back films, the Return of the Jedi series of figures could only be found on 65A, B and C cards.

Description: Tri-Logo Star Wars Return of the Jedi figures can be identified by the 3-language title bar on the front, and “Collect all 70″ in six different languages on the back.

2004 European Original Trilogy Collection Toys R Us Exclusive Silver Saga Edition Darth Vader

2004 European Original Trilogy Collection Toys R Us Exclusive Silver Saga Edition Darth Vader front

Description: More than 25 years after we first saw the Star Destroyer enter the screen at the beginning of A New Hope, Star Wars continues to both inspire and entertain. Much more than just a series of films Star Wars is a total experience. Essential components of that experience are the toys that we grew (and continue to grow) up with and the sense of community that brings us together to discuss, debate, and share all things Star Wars. It is with respect to the heritage of that experience that Hasbro offers this limited action figure to celebrate the dedication and enthusiasm of the fan community. May the Force be with you!

Comments: This is the same as the US figure, but with the added multi-language sticker on the back which, as it happens, is removable.
