Import or not?

I'm a UK collector but bought some of my figures on eBay so I'm not sure of their origin.

Was the Vintage Original Trilogy Collection sold in the UK as well as the US?

My Vintage Saga Collection figures have Ultimate Galactic Hunt 2006 and 2007 stickers on their clamshells which say either "valid in UK only" or "valid in US only" so I know which are US imports. However I have a Vintage Original Trilogy Collection Boba Fett that has no sticker on its clamshell. How can I tell if it was originally sold in the UK or US?

I've just noticed that my Vintage Saga Collection figures with the stickers that say "valid in UK only" also have barcodes stuck on the outside of the clamshell covering the original barcode inside. My Vintage Original Trilogy Collection Boba Fett doesn't.

Further to that, the UPCs on the figures with "valid in UK only" stickers and additional barcodes all start with a 5 which is a UK code. The US ones start with a 6. Interestingly my Vintage Original Trilogy Collection Boba Fett has one starting with a 0, but that's still a US code it seems.
