Here is what I know...

Officially released red carded with Holofoil Sticker:
Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi
Stormtrooper
Yoda

These are unreleased prototypes, but have been confirmed visually by me own eyes. There are a few that weren't even released originally on red cards.:
Boba Fett
Darth Vader
Han Solo
Han Solo (Carbonite Block text)
Han Solo (Endor)
Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard)
Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot)
Princess Leia Organa (2 bands on belt)
TIE-Fighter Pilot

I am not really sure why some of these were not released. I know the 3 that did get released were figures that were basically peg warmers or late releases for the red cards and sent back. Kenner added the Holofoils to them and they were short packed with the early green card assortments.  The prototypes are a product of inside sources at Kenner introducing them to the collectible market...

Yeah, those are the only three legitimate, standard release orange carded holo stickered figures there.  Of course, it goes without saying that you really have to watch out for fakes with these too (any stickered orange card).  Pretty simple to peel the foil sticker off a green card and slap it on an orange card.  Though to the observant people, you can probably find some fairly noticeable telltale signs that this is what happened - like stressing (stress lines) in the sticker, or one of it's corners being a little dinged from where the lift originated.

But there are a few of those prototype samples floating around as well, as listed above - but they weren't standard releases as far as anything that I've heard.  As for the regular three, I managed to snag the Stormtrooper and Yoda orange card foils at retail, but never saw the last one - Ben.  Oh well, maybe later...

These were a one time focus for me. If anyone has these for sale drop me a line.


 Any way. It seems to vary on what may or may not actually be in circulation. There are many people who have differnt list of characters released this way. Plus there have been many faked. Thomas's list is the one I see the most but I have also saw others listed such as a foreign carded C3PO and a holo carded tuskin raider. I can not say if these were genuine or not. It was an ebay sale.It seems that the makers played alot with the red release. factor in the other variations such as square cards, SUB's  bubble variations we may never really know what these guys released. My advice though with holo cards buy from respected dealers or sellers since these can be faked very easily.
