Some of the guys over at Beyond the Toys, think it possibly is from that Dixie cup offer.  Maybe the used backing sheet for the transfer?

It is the same artwork as the shirt but , part of what makes me doubt that its a Iron on is the plastic film it is printed on . It is very thin and I am almost certain it would melt if heat was applied from a iron . Its hard to tell from the pics but the design is printed on the back side of the plastic - looking at it from the back the image is reversed and appears slightly dull . Looking at it from the front it faces the right way and appears glossy .

Still might be something else? But at least we know what the image was used on. afro

It baffles me lol!

What it reminds me of is a overhead projector transparency like teachers would use when I was in school . Believe it or not , for some weird reason I have a overhead projector stashed away in the garage - I'll dig it out and see if it works .

Use the projector, and paint an oversized copy of it, on your bedroom wall. lol!

They seem to think it's a transfer.

Nice, that's a pretty great Han variant for £2! AND a free space pirate! rofl

I've never seen any vintage star wars figures in a charity shop, plenty of POTF2 though. audi

update. Some of the seasoned veteran collectors are saying it's an overstock transfer from that t-shirt mail-in promotion. Pete Vilmer from the SWCA has one as well.

And an update on the Coca Cola theater promotion pitchers & cups. Again, Some of the seasoned veteran collectors think this is a USA only item.
