    Description

    Star Wars - Luke Skywalker w/Telescoping Lightsaber 12 Back-C Action Figure (Kenner, 1978) AFA 85 NM+. Extremely rare figure that has sold for $25,000 on eBay in 2016 in this grade. This is the second highest-graded example according to AFA census. After Mego Corporation turned down the offer to make Star Wars figures, the license went to Kenner, who in 1977 was unprepared for the demand in toys generated by the first release. To compensate, Kenner created an "early bird" package for collectors to send away for the first four figures as soon as they became available in early 1978. Luke Skywalker was one of the early releases and the figure came with a rare double-telescoping Lightsaber that extended from its arm. Later versions came with a simpler one-piece Lightsaber, which makes the original release much more valuable and sought-after by collectors. Sub grades: C80 B85 F85. From the Dubai Collection.
