Thanks to Dave the Plumber for the report.

It is a fact that Japanese toymakers Takara took it upon themselves to produce unique 3.75-inch action figures based on Darth Vader, See-Threepio (C-3PO), and Stormtrooper in their classic Kenner Star Wars line, but they also distributed common versions made in Hong Kong during their short run. Knowing that, there is no way we'd ever list a Takara figure based on these three characters without highly detailed images. Sadly, the seller that listed this auction didn't factor that in before listing. Follow this link to see if you can identify which version this is, then ask yourself; are these the only three Takara made their own versions of?

The latest wave of Egg Attack Action figures pre-ordered from BigBadToyStore.com is shipping and we have to say...they are amazing! Great detail on the troopers (Riot Control, Megablaster Heavy Assault, and Clone), magnetic latching systems for the sidearms and backpacks, light up C-3PO and R2-D2 (with Princess Leia hologram projection option), and that awesome Dewback. Although they may be sold out, the site periodically restocks so place a pre-order for the next shipment when you can.
