      This figure debuted in the United States on The Power Of The Force card, and in Europe on the Tri-Logo card. It was never packaged on a Canadian card. This figure was also package along with EV-9D9 and Amanaman in the second edition of the Return Of The Jedi Sears exclusive Jabba The Hutt Dungeon Action Playset.

    Comments: 1985 saw the plastic tribute to a great film finally realized with the addition of Barada to Kennerís Star Wars action figure collection. Though subtle enough to be missed by all but the most faithful science fiction aficionado, someone (or some people) at Lucasfilm wanted to honour the film ĎThe Day The Earth Stood Stillí by using the three words that could save the human race from certain extinction subtly in Return Of The Jedi, a film thirty-two years itís junior. So, unlike most of the background characterís in the Star Wars saga, Klaatu, Barada, Nikto will always have the greatest of meanings.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Barada action figure has no known variations.

    Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
    Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
    1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
    I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
    This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
    I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
    I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
