TIE Fighter and Landspeeder Artwork from the 12-back Card
It's quite unbelievable that the original artwork for these two items is still in existence. They appeared to have been done in ink and watercolor, but they are mounted on foamcore. They are quite small and each is only about the size of normal hardback book. These graced the backs of the cards for the original twelve action figures and were an artist's rendering of the ships that would be available as the first accessories for the figures. It was only after this packaging, on 20 backs, that actual photos of the toys were used by Kenner. These two pieces of art are in pristine condition and are an incredible testament to the line that changed the world of toys.
