Star Wars 12-Back D3BO (C-3PO)
Figures for the Italian market were made by Harbert and came carded similar to the ones made by Kenner for the U.S. market. Sometimes the names differed because of the translation, but this was usually in cases where the name utilized words found in the Italian language and not made-up names like "Ben Kenobi" or the like. Thanks to Harbert, the Italian kids would know our beloved Goldenrod as "D3BO". It's interesting to see when they felt it was necessary to translate the name and when it wasn't. Like with R2, this is a case where I think they made a bad decision as the name is totally wrong any way you look at it. The cardback is similar to the Kenner cardback for this series.
