Re: Just popped in to see Toy Toni

It does make you wonder what he would think to someone pumping out fakes of the robot toys and toy guns that he loves and has written about.... He sold/sells tin robot toys as well. I wouldnt touch them either, its not that difficult to make a cut and shut out of 2 knackered robots to make a good o...

Re: Another new palitoy 12 back variation 12ab?

Checked my 12B Jawas and 12C Stormie. They all have text visible. My guide even mentions this already on the 12B sub page. I think we’re all good. :-)

Re: Another new palitoy 12 back variation 12ab?

No it's ok, it looks like all 12B and 12C cards are overprinted. No need to go out of your way to get new examples at this point.

No, it's ok. I've played with the Hue/Saturation in GIMP which highlights the text better!

Latest thinking is that all 12B cards and 12C cards were overprints and it's only some cards that you can even see the text showing through on!

Re: Another new palitoy 12 back variation 12ab?

One other mystery. Why didn’t they run any of the Han Solo 12A cards through a second time to black out the extra text? Jason It looks like all the Han Solo 12A cards had already had figures and bubbles attached so couldnt be reprinted a second time. It's possible that other of the 12A cards were a...

Another new palitoy 12 back variation 12ab?

This topic has been mentioned previously by palitoyjunky on the SWFUK forum a while ago. There are examples of the 12B card variation where the extra text "Laser Light and sound" on the back of the card under the Tie Fighter and X-Wing Fighter has been removed by taking a 12A card and runn...

Re: The day is coming....repro MOC

It would be interesting to see a comparison of the print under a microscope. Although the new repro cards might look good at first glance, you cannot replicate the effect of litho printing with a digital print. I'm sure under close inspection it will be possible to tell the difference. Yep, modern ...
