Japanese Escape from the Death Star Boardgame: I really love the look of this piece! It's the ever-popular Escape from the Death Star boardgame, an item that seems to have been released in every country to have seen licensed Star Wars product. I believe it was issued by Japanese toy producer Takara. The front of the box is really dynamic looking; and it's totally different from the black box that was released in the U.S. and most other countries.

The board is different, too, and it features some more great graphics.

Finally, here's a secondary box and the instruction sheet.
