Another classic Kenner white footer mint on card figure has found its way to eBay. As mentioned in a previous eT, it is believed that the white footer 12BK A carded figures are the earliest releases and the variation was short lived as Kenner switched over to color footers almost immediately after the production began. Follow this link to check out this very rare Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) action figure.

Even though this has nothing to do with Star Wars, this edition of eBay Today is a must-watch. A beautiful copy of Action Comics #1 has been listed and in the first three days of its ten day run, the first appearance of Superman is sitting (as far as we can tell legitimately) at more than $1,750,000 USD! If you aren't watching this auction, we recommend you take a look at what may be the auction of the century and let us know what you think it will end at.

Like many of Hasbro's previous San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, this year's Jabba the Hutt 6-inch Throne Room set was briefly available at HasbroToyShop.com, and Rebelscum reader Dave C. managed to order two while the item was still in stock. Sadly, as you can see from the above pictures, poor packing meant that they arrived packaging dented, scuffed and a little worse for wear. Disappointing for collectors who are paying a premium for an exclusive collectible.
