Great pick up, I think that these Tsukuda backs really add interest, been looking out for these myself.

Weequay feels more badass with the Tsukuda Japanese Back. Feels like he carved the writing out with a few slashes of his Skiff Force pike. Top pick up.

Shame about the head, but holy smokes it's still a brilliant price for that. 8)

The head is the main reason I bought it. I liked the rebel commander and wanted an esb and since the figure was damaged I though it would be a cheap alternative. Plus it looks cool. :lol:

I see your point, I mean when does a head ever come off inside a sealed bubble!, it's a cool and obscure oddity.

Not mine, but this is a very good price, no bubble lift or cracks or anything...

A couple here I'm really pleased with. Both from ebay.com and both came in at £45 each including postage to my brother in the US . The CCP is a 48-back with the additional bonus of a coin sticker. The Yoda a 32-back. Both cards have seen better days but I think flattening them, cleaning the Yoda card and putting them in an acrylic case each will work wonders :D

Well done! 8)
