  • Point of Interest: 
      Originally available in the 1983 Jabba the Hutt Dungeon playset, this figure first appeared carded on the Return Of The Jedi 77 back card in the United States, but can also be found on the Emperor offer Canadian Return Of The Jedi 65 Back card.

    Comments: To modern Star Wars fans, the names ‘Klaatu’, 'Nikto', 'Barada', and 'Weequay' are those of species (not to mention nods to pop culture), but that wasn't the case in the old school days. Each of those names were the character's actual names. As such, Klaatu (In Skiff Guard Outfit) was actually the same guy as the dude with the furry skirt that came out on the 65 back cards mere months earlier.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Klaatu (In Skiff Guard Outfit) action figure has no documented major variations.
