Overview

Shown on select vintage Kenner carded action figures, such as Power Droid and Greedo, promoting the mail-away exclusive figure.

This offer appeared on the following card backs, as confirmed by TheSWCA.com:

* SW20C
* SW20D
* SW20E
* SW20F
* SW20G
* SW20H

The promo was originally set to end May 31, 1979 but was extended to March 31, 1980. Some cardbacks have a round red sticker indicating the change. There are also some with rectangular red stickers that say the promo went to December 31, 1980.

TheSWCA.com also has a thorough write-up on the Battlestar Galactica crisis which relates to the cancellation of the rocket-firing feature for Boba Fett.

    Of the 20 Star Wars action figures, only R2-D2 and C-3PO were not issued with this offer card. However, there are Chromalin printers' proofs of R2 and 3PO. And there are also square cornered proof cards for 5 or 6 characters.

    Interesting side collectibles are the "Free Boba Fett Gratuit" Canadian cards, which are much rarer than the US versions.
