NO FONT VERSION (See image below) As far as I am aware this baggie type was only used for Chewbacca & only in “some” of the early bird sets

Additional / Pending – there are 2 versions of the small font SW-d (printing variation) the font types are almost identical but the actual print impression differs slightly, one being a solid print with more defined straight edges, the other (the type shown above) has a more textured appearance under magnification.

Only four known figures ever came in this baggie type those being Walrus Man, Greedo / Walrus Man & Snaggletooth being the horizontal text and Hammerhead with the vertical text, making it a bit of an oddity with the varying direction of the font layout.

NOTE – One example of a Walrus man with vertical text has been documented, but it  is normally only Hammerhead.

Kenner SW-f (left) beside a Palitoy-k (right)

Palitoy-k to show why they have so often been confused as the same baggie type, font’s are very similar as are the baggies, the font on the Palitoy is about 10mm shorter in length than it’s Kenner counterpart & the Kenner has sharper / cleaner printing & straighter edged font Both Palitoy-k & SW-f are Soft bags / Heat sealed.

Same logo as the SW-c but with vertical font.

As far as I am aware this baggie is specific to just the 2 figures shown above, the Hammerhead specific to a run of the Canadian creature cantina (speculation) & the Luke for the EB set’s know as “transition sets” now the Luke is also available in both DT & regular saber in this baggie style.
