Is this a reseal, as the footer looks like it might be missing? Or is that it standing upright on the right-hand side of the figure's legs; it's hard to be sure?! If it is a reseal, obviously that will massively affect the value.

As for figures debuting on cards that they themselves did not appear on the back of, I don't know the definitive answer, but I've always assumed it was probably because the new cardback artwork wasn't always available in time for the first run of figures in a new batch, and so it was simply easier to re-use the previous artwork until the new one was ready. I might be talking utter nonsense of course, as that is just my guess, so I am very happy to be corrected by anyone else with greater knowledge :-)

If your not aware you should be able to get that “footer” back in it’s rightful place by:
Putting the card upside down so there is max. room between the figures feet and the bubble base and then manoeuvre the footer into place with the aid if a pin in the hole at the back of the card where the bubble meats the card.
Lovley AT AT Driver, really nice.

No worries!

As Nick says, the footer is really easy to sort. A thin, unwound paperclip is my tool of choice for this ;)

This card is the 'Smile' factory version (there is a little S next to Greedo on the back). Exactly like mine ;)

Hi,

I have a couple of prices in Star Wars Tracker for this piece, but I had to go back a couple of years - they do not seem to be very common at all. Latest one was in May 2016 for £373 from eBay, previous to that was £396 from Vectis.

The valuation of £400 earlier is a good one, but perhaps even more could be obtained given the market has only really moved up since then.

Agreed- with the scarcity, it could probably fetch a bit more.
