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.

Third line of text down is extended with ‘large size non die cast’ in the 12C vs the 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.

Re: This will not look good on your Falcon

That is like the worst ebay photo I have ever seen.

Presumably they are doing listings from a mobile and just taking the pictures as they go without checking them!

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 47 LAUNCHED

On the subject of AFA mislabeling, in the early days of grading before Ford's palitoy.org matrix got going, AFA had to come up with their own letter designations, some of which differed from the ones we now use on Ford's, and now my matrix. It looks like they conform to this now. So, it's only seen ...
