|Star Wars Han Solo 12-Back Quality Control Sample|
|You see here what must be one of the earliest production samples of the carded Han Solo action figure. It's identical to a regular Han 12-back, except for the presence of a sign-off notation in the white pricing area. The date is March of 1978.
Here you see the back. As you'd expect, it's the first version of the 12-back card.
There are a number of legitimate QC samples floating around out there. Collectors need to be very wary of fakes, as it's beyond easy for someone to write on a carded figure and then try to pass it off as something special. I bought this one directly from a former Kenner employee, so I have no doubts as to its authenticity.
