Comments: He appeared in 1995 with the first wave of European red cards. Very easy to find in 1996, he was the first figure to disappear from the European line at the end of the year and curiously never came back although he was one of the major Star Wars characters. It means also that the Hoth version with datalink and periscope didn't reach the old continent.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
