Star Wars Action Figure Variant Covers Checklist

With over 100 action figure variant covers available spread across the various Star Wars comic series, I thought it would be a good idea to create a checklist. I hope this will be a good point of reference for all existing and new collectors of these fantastic variant covers. Artist John Tyler Christopher has done such a great job on all of these, there isn’t one that I don’t like.

Action Figure Variant Covers List

Below is a definitive list of all the current variant covers including all retail exclusives. Do you have them all? which are you missing? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I don’t collect the black and white versions so you might be missing a couple of those, but I did notice your missing the Mail Away 3 pack style cover for C-3po one shot comic which was 3 droids and the Rogue one 3 pack cover. Thanks for the list

    Reply
    • Well spotted Joe, I did indeed miss the two mail away versions for C-3po and Rogue one, will get them uploaded asap. Be sure to check back as I will be keeping this checklist up to date as and when new covers are released.

  2. hi just managed to get a hold of the black and white sketch version of Luke skywalker (£££££££) and noticed your list I thought that I had the whole collection but the Vader down checklist has got 6 versions according to you. I only Know of 4 ,Forbiden Planet,Midtown, Wondrworld andwanted comix. can you tell me the two I’m missing please

    Reply
    • Hi Jamie, I have updated the post to show all the variants of Vader Down, Looks like you are missing All Heroes and Buy me Toys.com – Hope that helps and congrats on getting the Black & White Sketch of Star Wars #1 – Happy days!

      Reply
    • not a fan of the b&w covers. had a chance to get that cover when it was released for £50, I know the local comic shop owner. didn’t want to waste 50 quid on it. lol!

      Reply
      • thanks for the reply! I always thought that the at-at commander was Veers. the picture depicts a black uniform while all the top brass had slightly grey uniform. suggesting a lower level officer. hence, not veers. what do you think the chances of the second bespin guard being released? they are doing the second snaggletooth as an exclusive. so, maybe the same?

        Reply
        • The AT-AT Commander is General Veers too, in the Empire Strikes Back he talks to Vader dressed in his officers uniform then Commands the Ground Assault on Hoth. So, we have two Veers (Just like the original Kenner figure cards). John Tyler Christopher seems to keep in line with the original figures so I wouldn’t be surprised if we did get the other Bespin Guard, not sure as an exclusive though. I’m Looking forward to the Cloud Car Pilot which should be one of the next few covers!

          Reply
          • so the figure on the cover isn’t veers but the face pic on the right is. lol!
            looks like we got a thrawn cover to look out for in February when the mini hits.

          • The face on both covers is Veers, just like the original Kenner cards. I am guessing the figures are based on him too, its just Kenner decided to call them AT-AT Commander and Imperial Officer rather than ‘General Veers’. He does wear both uniforms in the film though. Thrawn will be awesome, but disappointed we didn’t get a Captain Phasma!

  3. Surely there will be a John Tyler Christopher exclusive to plug that hole at issue #40, (it bugs me although I know it shouldn’t).

    Reply
  4. Thanks for compiling this list and it has confirmed that I have them all except for the B&W Luke Skywalker cover. Can’t find one for a respectable price.

    Reply
  5. issues 42 and 43 are zuckuss and 4 lom whats the odds on 44 being bossk?

    Surely there must be a jabba version on the horrison as well?

    Reply
    • We are still on the Empire Strikes back characters at the moment so I would imagine Jabba will be a while yet. No idea why but I have a feeling 43 will the Cloud Car Pilot.

      Reply
      • ha! had just read the above comment and got confused. so, 4 to go, then! lol
        i love these covers. so looking forward to them all. even the rubbishy characters.
        just looking at the ROTJ characters. only one im not really looking forward to is 8D8. still will lookcool, though. yeah, biker scout and AT-ST driver will be cool!
        my guess for cover of #40 is yoda force ghost. for obv reasons :-p

        Reply
        • Loving these covers and great checklist! I’m missing B&W Luke Skywalker & General Tagge, Qui-Gon, Kylo Ren, Darth Maul and Rogue One mailaway packages. Also only have one of the 6 Vader down vintage cardback comics. Might get the others.
          I would have liked to have seen 4-LOM and Zuckuss variants with the names swapped round like the original figures.

          Reply
  6. issue 45 bib fortunna so it looks like we’ve started on the Jedi cards. Can’t believe they haven’t done a bossk variant hopefully it might be a JTC limited edition coming in the future

    Reply
  7. Hi all just wondering if you all know about the secret JTC issue 58 Emporer Palpatine negative variant that was released today Only 1000 available from his website, got the E-Mail yesterday and ordered mine today be quick as they will go fast This was exclusivly sent to people who buy issues directly from his web site so its not common knowledge yet

    Reply
  8. Just want to say thanks for keeping this up. I check back every few months to see if I’ve missed any. One day I may try to collect all the other variant covers too but for now just the JTC ones.

    Reply
    • “THE LAST I SAW ON TWITTER FROM JTC WAS THAT HE WASN’T SURE WHAT HE COULD OR COULDN’T SAY SO HE WOULD NOT SAY ANYTHING YET. HOPE IT DOESN’T END AS I HAVE EVERY SINGLE ONE AND I WANT HIM TO DO MORE

      Reply
    • Solicitations for two new Star Wars titles (one Kylo Ren series and a one-shot) include JTC action figure variants. I think Charles Soule is the new writer of the main series they’re starting over at #1, and he’s starting things off where Luke gets his hand chopped off in ESB.

      I’m hoping against hope these are going to continue in the new run.

  9. Just to let everyone know there is another super secret JTC yoda variant been released same as he did with the emporer a few months back. You only get the email if you order direct from him

    Plus there is a Luke Skywalker black Jedi knight just been anounced

    • Over on Facebook, I asked about the Sebastian Shaw version of Anakin and JTC replied to the effect what if it’s already been done. So maybe the next exclusive variant will be the OG Anakin.

  11. I’m in the process of hunting down the Vader Down variants and struggling to find a Forbidden Planet variant that’s not signed and graded on eBay. Wondering if anyone knew of anywhere I could find a copy.

    Thanks!

  13. It looks like the latest volume of Star Wars has a new Luke Skywalker cover. It is for issue #6. Problem is, I cannot find it for sale at any of the online shops.

      • I could only find this on Midtown:

        Star Wars Bounty Hunters #6 Cover C Variant John Tyler Christopher Action Figure Cover

        I was looking for the regular Star Wars book which also has a variant for issue #6.

        Reply
  14. For the past few years this site seems to be the most complete resources for JTC’s Star Wars Action Figure Variant Covers. I was sure that you would add the A cover and the B variant for the “Star Wars Action Figure Variant Covers Collector’s Book #1”, which was released in comic book format by Marvel on August 12, 2020. The regular cover has the Vintage Vader Carrying Case closed. The variant has the case opened revealing a bunch of figures JTC has previously painted. Just a suggestion. Thanks for maintaining the site.

    Reply
  15. I see images of the Star Wars Action Figure Variant Covers Book were added but I think there is an error. The main image was a JTC drawing of the Vader carrying case closed. The B variant with the case opened is correct. What is currently shown as the standard cover is, as far as I know, only a promotional image. There is no book that folks could buy with the cover shown.
