Return of the Jedi 30-Back Luke Bespin
Luke Bespin was one of the first ten figures made by Lili Ledy. It debuted on the El Imperio Contraataca line on the 10 back card and later appeared in the El Retorno del Jedi line which later transformed into El Regreso del Jedi. It can be found on all known Jedi cardbacks which are the 12, 14, 30, and 50 backs. The figure shown above is the 30 "positive" back which has a white background and black line drawings of the figures.

The cardback photo is similar to the second ESB photo that Kenner used, except less sharp and with a closer view of Luke. Due to this, there is a white background with just a few hints of blue in place of the blue background used by Kenner.

On the nameplate box and figure area portions of the card a light green color was used, different than Kenner's darker green.

It should be noted that the figure was molded in a beige color slightly more transparent than the Kenner version. Additionally, the figure's face is paler. This figure was produced with brown hair and not with blond hair that Kenner also produced. Finally, most of the figures had the country of origin erased from the legs.

With respect to the accessories, the lightsaber was molded in a slightly transparent yellow plastic and the gun was the blue Bespin gun, seeing as the gun Kenner used (Han Solo blaster) was never produced by Lili Ledy.
