I’ve had this Mexican backer card for years, although I’ve never fully known what toys it was used to sell. My best theory is parachuting figurines that were copies of the Kenner figures but I’m not sure.

All i know is, I love the art on this thing though it looks largely swiped from Marvel’s movie adaptation. It may be unlicensed bit I love it’s crude charm more than anything on the shelves today.

    Yeah, that art is definitely not from Marvel Star Wars.
