12/32 back R2
« on: January 19, 2007, 01:56 AM »
i recently bought a 12 back R2 on ebay with a smashed bubble and when i got it out of the box and inspected the card it had a 12/32 sticker on it. what a surprise the guy didnt put that on the ad. dose anybody know how rare these are and are they worth more than a 12 back. i sent it to AFA and it got a 75 bubble 85 card anb a 85 figure. this is one of my rare figures in my collection and im trying to get a value for insurance reasons but i cant find any others. can anybody help...

I'm not sure about rarity or price for these particular cards. I know I don't have one for the Stormtrooper, and don't see many for the other characters. I did locate another owner of your R2 12d here (about five posts down), so at least we know yours isn't the only one.

I'm interested to know if AFA labeled yours as a 12/32 or a 12d...or both.

Hope this helps a little.

sorry the grades that i gave were for my Empire R2 the 32 back is a C80 B75 F90.75 ex+/nm. the sticker says
 1978 KENNER STAR WARS
12back
R2-D2
32 BACK STICKER
the AFA number is 12311162
 i gave it to AFA at the SDCC in '06 and they took for ever to return it to me. the guy said it was rare and  that there are just a few greaded. i just want to get a reasonable $ figure for my records.the  bad thing with AFA is that they put what you write on the app and if you forget something or dont know that it is a variant of any kind they wount take it upon themselfs to ad it for you. so i din't put a D back on it.what i read is that kenner put theys out when the ESB figures where going out and they found a few 12 back boxes left over and instead of repacking they just printed stickers and put them on the old stock.so they might all be D back ill have to look this up. thanks...

I sold a C-8 version of this for $250 at least 2 years ago.

Those 12/32's are very* rare.
