I need a little help. I have a carded Freeze Frame Hoth Rebel Soldier on a .03 card. However, on the back there is are two small stickers that have what appear to be an Asian language on them. I have seen the Japanese carded figures, and the stickers are not similar. Does anyone know where this figure is from?

Depends on where you got it. If you got it from a collector shop then it's likely it could have gone through Asia and instead of the Tomy sticker the shop that had it (could've been a collector shop as well) put their own sticker on it for Japanese customers.

Or someone just slapped on the stickers for laughs.


As for the country of origin, all SW toys I've seen from POTF2+ have said made in China. :D

I believe yours is from Hong Kong. The writing might be info regarding the HK Fanclub, that's why they covered up the US info. The words "Kowloon" are on it in Chinese, and the phone number's area code belongs to HK as well. Hope that helps.
