      This figure debuted in the United States on The Power Of The Force card, and in Europe on the Tri-Logo card. It was never packaged on a Canadian card. This figure was also package along with EV-9D9 and Amanaman in the second edition of the Return Of The Jedi Sears exclusive Jabba The Hutt Dungeon Action Playset.

    Comments: 1985 saw the plastic tribute to a great film finally realized with the addition of Barada to Kenner?s Star Wars action figure collection. Though subtle enough to be missed by all but the most faithful science fiction aficionado, someone (or some people) at Lucasfilm wanted to honour the film ?The Day The Earth Stood Still? by using the three words that could save the human race from certain extinction subtly in Return Of The Jedi, a film thirty-two years it?s junior. So, unlike most of the background character?s in the Star Wars saga, Klaatu, Barada, Nikto will always have the greatest of meanings.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Barada action figure has no known variations.

    How would you feel about Gentle Giant Ltd. producing a Dark Trooper Mini Bust from the 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces video game? It could be a single Dark Trooper or perhaps a 3-pack showcasing the various Phases of production.
    Shut up and take my money!
    I'm a completist, so I'm in regardless.
    I could be convinced to purchase this if it wasn't too difficult to obtain.
    Never played the game and don't know anything about the character, so not a likely purchase for me.
    No interest.
