1985 Kenner Star Wars POTF Lando Calrissian Unproduced Mock-up: Besides being unique and unproduced, this POTF Mock-up has got a lot going for it, both in terms of provenance and condition. The provenance for this example can be traced right back to the Kenner contracted photographer (Kim Simmons) who shot it for the 1985 Kenner Toy Fair catalog (pg.40 item #14) – it is actually reputed to be that example! This very mock-up is also prominently featured in one of Gus Lopez’s works (Gus and Duncan’s Guide to Star Wars Prototypes - pg. 93), so again, great provenance and a bit of hobby vetting too. This packaging concept of course was never released before Kenner decided to end its Power of the Force line of toys; as such, this lone specimen is the only carded example of the Lando character known to exist on a POTF Card. Many of these mock-ups had their backs severely compromised (torn) when they were taken down from their mount following photography. In this one regard, this is probably one of, if not the nicest example out there as the back is very clean! Both prototype blisters are hand applied to the unpunched proof card – the one covering the figure is starting to yellow a bit which is a typical trait for these blisters while for some reason the ones covering the coins remain clearer. The corresponding Lando coin presented on this mock-up is also a nice bonus, as it is a scarce category IV or Uncommon Class C coin depending on the published resource used to determine rarity. As to be expected, there are a few faults occurring here and there – most notably the creases to both bottom corners of the card and some fine glue residue on back from when this sample was mounted, but as a one-of-a-kind piece, you can rest assure that no other example exists to rival this specimen’s condition!! - Comes with a COA from CIB’s Tom Derby and one from Rachfal Enterprises.
