Name your top 5 pictures used on cardbacks.

1. Erg
2. Biker Scout
3. FX-7
4. Leia Boushh

I did this on my FB page and results were very interesting. I’ll count them and make a list of the most popular once enough people have answered.

in no exact order :

*Tie-Pilot ESB/ ROTJ/ Revenge ( not...not POTF , the POTF artwork Kenner hacked out the Falcon running off in the distance on Left side...bad)
*Stormtrooper
*R2
*Chewie ( 1st photo)
*Snaggletooth
*DSD
*Greedo
*2-1B
*Bib Fortuna ....
...... several others, but that's a start

**Also, in general I prefer SW -ESB- ROTJ packaging. POTF... the top header has a great design, non-movie specific ( 1/3 of the front card... solid) , however smaller character photo (negative) .... and the whole "Special" printed on front... I just don't buy it ( now a days, and even in '84-'86 ... I was out of the loop, and didn't buy POTF).

**Favorite backings :
* 41D / 41E : first backing Kenner took a group photo of all figures available at the time, good memories ... reminds me of cold Hoth, and the Christmas my mother bought me a AT-AT !!
* 45 , 47 , 48 backs .... not too many characters, nice colors /design.
* individual character squares : 20A. / Fett offer / ESB 21B. .... again, all great, nice design at the time

2) Stormtrooper
3) Sand People/Tusken Raider

My first movie and Star Wars movie experience was ROTJ
After seeing ROTJ in theaters, I quickly watched the other two on vhs at our house and loved all three. My sisters had most of the a new hope and empire toys and I eventually inherited them, But the first toys I bought were also ROTJ , so I’m partial to them even today in my collection.
Top 5
1. Jedi luke
2. Emperors Royal guard
3. Rebel commando
4. Biker scout
5. Gamorrean Guard
