Takara 12 back R2-D2: Star Wars toys were released by a myriad of companies throughout the world during the vintage era. Takara released the early figures in carded form with the notable Japanese text sticker on the lower card front. The sticker placement adds visual appeal to the card and immediately distinguishes it from the US version.
