That's exactly how people speak in my part of London :D

Wonder if this whole affair has had any impact on Toni and his trading?

Well it's obviously killed his sales of the Palitoy TOCs but he's still selling Kenner and Trilogo MOCs, and unsurprisingly loads of graded and ungraded loose figures :roll:

Wouldnt it have been funny if the palitoy employees sale at vectis would have had some of the carded/ bubble figure variations on tonis list.

Without checking the list, I'd call TT on that one for the following reasons: card is too good, bubble out of position, don't like the look of that seal one bit and finally, I'm not sure, but didn't 45b backs have the weapon taped to the inside of the bubble?

*EDIT* just checked the list and there were 264 TFP Palitoy 45b ESB cardbacks bought by TT, so this is definitely on the list. So yes, I'd say it's a TT. Have you bought it or is it up for sale somewhere?

Go on, Lee, where have I got it wrong? Edumalacate me, please. Personally I'd avoid it like the plague and I'd hate to pass up something like that if genuine!

Have checked and 45b (only have one) that I have and the weapon is loose, so that's OK. But I'm still not convinced about the seal though, nor the off centre bubble. Toni did put some double stemmed bubble on this cardback, too. Dammit, thought I'd got the whole TT spotting thing sorted :/

Can you post a close up of the seal around the bottom by the prongs?

I'd be concerned with the TFP as it has the central bubble with the pin sized holes which rings a few alarms - I'd say fake

the gun not being taped isn't an issue IMO

I thing regarding the TFP it is clear! I received some feedback from echo base UK on FB and the answer was 100% TT! Yoda and IC on Kenner should be ok

I'd hand fire on being so sure. There's split opinion on it being a TT. Personally, I think it is but as Edd says, a photo from between the bubble stems will help as will an angled shot of the rear to see if there is any impression or the bubble at all. Don't write it off just yet....
