Re: For sale c3po 12 back palitoy afa 85 A back archival

Well I surely can agree but some collectors out there chase the A back more then the B back as the A back is a true first wave first release and therefore a little rarer, I recall you bought 6 of them of me a few years ago but in them days there was no distinction on the type a b ir c etc but colle...

A grade chaser may pay more for an AFA'd one. It's also a coffin though and prevents safe postage. There's really no premium between 12A and 12B releases on Palitoy 12 backs in my experience.

Re: NEW 12C PALITOY VARIANT FOUND !!!!!!!!!!

So in the same way we dont see Han Solo progress beyond the 12A card, as they printed more of those and had a surplus, I think the same is true for Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO and Ben in terms of progressing from 12B on to 12C. And if you look at the cards we do see as 12C, there are reasons why th...

Re: NEW 12C PALITOY VARIANT FOUND !!!!!!!!!!

Excellent find! Presumably someone complained because their Vader didn’t fit in their die cast tie - nuts! And why didn’t Kenner make the same change? Pesky diecasts. Yep, and Luke and Ben in the landspeeder. Presumably American parents weren’t as stupid as the ones in the UK and nobody complained!...

Re: NEW 12C PALITOY VARIANT FOUND !!!!!!!!!!

Have sent emails to AFA, CAS and UKG detailing the new variation so new graded examples can have the new 12C variation on the label. Existing graded ones prior to now will say 12B.

Re: Palitoys

This is an amazing discovery by Dav. Never thought we would see a new major variant this late in the game. So far, R2D2, Vader, Stormie, Jawa, Sanbpeople and DSC are confirmed to exist on this card. So we are still looking for an example 12C Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO and Ben. Han does not exist a...

Re: The Trilogo 70C cardback

Nice write up!

The other major distinction between 70B & 70C is that 70C is on much thinner cardstock. Useful if the bubble area at the bottom of the card is missing or torn as it often is.
