You will be hard pressed to find another. The figure was, at one time, removed from through the shrink wrap and has been meticulously replaced. Most of the shrink wrap is still intact. The rarest of the rare.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Less than 10 known to exist in the world. THE RAREST FIGURES EVER MADE IN THE STAR WARS WORLD WAS FROM KENNER CANADA.
SEARS CANADA WAS GIVEN AN ADVANCE SET OF STAR WARS FIGURES TO SELL EXCLUSIVELY AT SEARS CANADA IN 3 PACK SETS AND 7 PACK SETS. IN A RUSH TO GET THEM TO RETAIL THEY WERE VACUUM SEALED TO PERFORATED CARDS AND NO PICTURE OF THE CHARACTER OR THE NORMAL BUBBLES WERE USED. THESE PACKS CAME WITH REGULAR CARDED FIGURES & ONE SHRINK WRAP FIGURE AT THE END. THIS R2-D2 IS CALLED PERISCOPE R2-D2 AND NOT SENSORSCOPE. MAKING THE CARD EVEN MORE RARE AS SEARS CANADA WAS UNAWARE OF WHAT THIS VERSION OF R2 WAS FINALLY GOING TO BE CALLED.
THE TRANSITION STICKERS WERE PLACE ON EMPIRE STRIKES BACK CARDS BECAUSE KENNER CANADA HAD MADE SO MUCH STOCK THEY MADE SPECIAL ROTJ STICKERS TO GO OVER THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK LOGOS. IN THIS CASE THERE IS ONLY 2 STICKERS PRESENT. ONE HAS BEEN REMOVED BEFORE IT CAME TO MY COLLECTION.
MOST OF THESE FIGURES ARE EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND AND ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN WITH LESS THAN 10 KNOWN TO EXIST IN THE WORLD OR EACH CHARACTER. This has been in my personal collection for more than 18 years.
