20 Action Figure Display Bin + Header (Sticker Covering Rocket Mechanism)

Though many collectors have subsequently removed them from the displays in their collections, the header cards for the 20-back action figure bins came with a sticker covering the portion of the display showing the rocket-firing mechanism on the back of the line's first mail-away figure, Boba Fett, which, as we all know, was supposed to come with a rocket-firing backpack. Its not uncommon to see these displays with damaged sticker-areas due to improper sticker removal, so anyone seeking to remove the sticker from their mint 20-back header should think twice about doing so.

The sticker is made so as to mesh perfectly with the yellow starburst encircling Boba Fett, as well as to completely obscure the hand reaching to launch the rocket on his back. Thus, the super-neato feature that would have been a firing rocket mechanism, was reduced to simply "Special Offer," and another piece of memorabilia takes its place in Rocketfett lore.
