ESB 21 back Ben Kenobi mock-up
This is a mock up for the first run of Empire Strikes Back action figure packaging.  The interesting thing about this piece is that the Ben Kenobi action figure and bubble were cut from a Star Wars card and pasted to an Empire Strikes Back 21 back proof card, ostensibly to demonstrate the final appearance of the figure on the package. In the close up, you can see the familar "double racetrack" bar design that was used for Star Wars packaging.
