Rarest MOC by character

Postby BlueDog » Sat Feb 22, 2014 11:15 am

In light of teh recent sale of the Palitoy FX-7 I thought it would be fun to gauge what other members regard as the rarest/most desirable MOC by character. I reckon it's cool to see that some of the least desirable figures are sometimes some of the most sought after on certain MOC's.

Here's the list and combo's I can think of:

Luke FB - GDE Canadian 12 back, POCH, Harbert
Vader - Takara Alt Sculpt 12 back
Obi Wan - Clipper 12 back

All the carded VC Jawas are tough except the Kenner VCJ. I think there is also a Canadian 12 Back VCJ. :?

My suggestion for Logray would be tri logo. Not many of those around.

Joe had a neat list going:
[QUOTE=Joe_O;18309077]*****Time to vote*****!

As everyone has seen here , over the past week and with the help of the community here at RS we have been discussing the rarest of the rare of production carded figures, ideas were rejected and hearts were broken (Jimmy I am sorry!) but the list below is the result of our discussions in this thread, I am sure many people were posting out of experience after searching for their suggested figures for many years, some searches ending well - others possibly not!

Regardless who makes the top 10 the list shows some damn hard to find MOC figures, I know some on the list were chosen perhaps because of popularity and desirability but I think there are an equal amount that are on the list that truly belong in the top 10 list because they just aren't out there (regardless of if they are popular or not)

So here it is! To vote simply pick your 10 from the list below and post in this thread- the voting will last for a week and end Sunday 5th December! Enjoy!

You don't have to give a reason, personal preference, most desirable, most talked about - it's your call and they can be in any order, no need to make any rarity order out of your top 10 !


The ten rarest Vintage Star Wars MOC figures in my opinion are:

1.

5.
6.

Poch 45back TIE PILOT- Only 1 card back ever found

Unless a ROTJ Palitoy ever surfaces.

Great idea for a thread.

No offence but that is a very traditional list full of the 'desirable' rare figures.

Not saying they aren't rare but Joe's post on RS highlighted how many figures exist in only ones or twos on certain card backs.

Is there any card back that doesn't have at least 5 known VCJs? I suppose with the popular figs more people are looking and keeping count - no doubt we will see a few more FX7s now like we did with the Pal VCJ

Because of the size of the original production runs any US production figure isn't really rare, just very desirable - Zuckuss and 4LOM fall into that category - if there are 20 each of them that is a lot a more than some of the European examples. I'm no expert on these so feel free to tell me only one of each is known :)

I can only really speak for Han Hoth and there have to only be a handful of Palitoy 45a and b cardbacks - less than 5? The 45b is a good test, no logo so less desirable and presumably not locked up in collections. So the two currently known is a fair estimate

The other rare Han Hoths are POCH, Meccano and the ESB Candians - but as these are so sought after there could be quite a few but they are all locked up in collections.

Gary will have the best idea on Palitoys but I think Leia Bespin on 45b is super rare if not yet confirmed

A very interesting thread

Leia Bespin was finally confirmed in 2012, thanks to Lee Gregory.

And it was a MOC that was found!
