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.
