rare piece. To make the figure double telescoping, the lightsaber

thicker portion of the lightsaber. This 12 Back A with a white figure
stand is a very early example of a Star Wars 12 back. It is only known
to have been available as a sample, which means figures like this
would have likely originated from Kenner employees and would have
not been available at the normal retail level.

the 12 Back A's include the white figure stand. This premier piece
is 1 of only 8 12 Back-A Darth Vader double telescoping figures

an archival case with a custom bubble encasement for protection. The

corner of the bubble, which AFA has assured us is not a crack. The
