The 1/6 scale, 12-inch Admiral Piett figure is Sideshow Collectibles latest addition to their expanding line of Militaires of Star Wars figures.

Admiral Piett was unexpectantly promoted after Darth Vader personally "dismissed" his superior Admiral Ozzel after he made a fatal mistake in tracking down the rebels.

He was an attentive and creatively minded Captain on Vader's vast Super Star Destroyer, the Executor, unlike his superior Admiral Ozzel who was a "by the manual" type of commander.

After his sudden and unexpected promotion served on the Executor until its demize during the Battle of Endor, after an A-wing starfighter crashed into the Executor's bridge.

When Was The First Admiral Figure Released?

The very first Admiral Piett figure was released as part of the Rebel Command Center Adventure Set but he didn’t see the light of day as an individual carded figure until 1981 as an Empire Strikes Back figure he was also released on a Return of the Jedi and Tri-logo card.

Due to the poor quality control on production of the early vintage Star Wars figures most have minor variations.

The main variation of interest on this figure is that it was available with two slightly different chest sculpts.

If you checkout the backs of the figures one of them one has two short rectangles under the three lines on the upper back while the other has two larger rectangles that, together, are the same width as the three lines above it. The first variation also has more noticeable folds in the tunic under the belt also but there is no indication as to whether either of them is rarer than the other.

Another oddity with the Admiral Piett Figure is that it was included as General Veers on a Canadian exclusive skin wrapped card. These were produced for Sears Canada and were included as exclusive bonus figures in multi-packs created for the holiday catalog.

Kenner therefore released them as vacuum packed figures on poor quality cards that had the same design as the front of a regular Canadian The Empire Strikes Back cards and a completely unprinted back.

Other skinned wrapped figures included Dengar, Ugnaught, Lobot (Lando's Aid), Han Solo (Cloud City Outfit), General Veers, Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit), and R2-D2 with Periscope.

Did you know?

General Veers didn't actually die in The Empire Strikes Back but he also didn’t stay with the Imperial Forces for ROTJ either.

So what happened to him?

Maybe he's living a Robinson Crusoe life on some far of planet somewhere, no-one really knows.
