Saw this and thought that the bubble was good, so hey why not :?
One question though, the original price sticker has been removed and a Kay Bee $.99 has been stuck over the top, well mostly.
Did this happen in the 80s, ie Kay Bee over stock, or has this been done more recently to cover up litho damage and make the MOC more appealing?
Does anyone else have one like this?
Overall very pleased. :D


He's very nice, mate. And whilst it wouldn't surprise me KayBee had removed a sticker first, it's more normal that they just went over the top of the old one. The other thing that's got me thinking is the label itself. KayBee clearance stick started at 79c before going 2/$1.00 (usually hand written in red over 79c label). I don't recall seeing a 99c figure before. Also the code is different to usual: 402079 when it's usual to see 402073. Carl is your man for KayBee as he has a thread on KayBee price stickers. Out and about so can't check my variety or perform a decent search on the forum at the moment but will check again later as I may well be speaking balls.

Regardless, it's a lovely looking figure and a great start on a Trilogo run, hopefully!

My KayBee library is still fooked because of photobucket, will need to download all the pics and then add them again. Just had a look on PB though and I had a Jedi Nunb with a $1.29 sticker on and an Ewoks Logray that was $3.79 originally then marked down to $1.99 in red. Also a Circus World stickered Lango General POTF that started at $3.49 so whilst most things were $.79 or 2 for a dollar there was a range of prices.
The codes aren't uniform either so I honestly think it's fine. Someone would have to have pulled the sticker off another MOC or cardback perfectly and then reapplied it to try and gain what, ten quid? Unlikely in my opinion.


You say that but there's a guy in Florida that specialises in flogging on undeclared sticker transplants. The only thing that makes me think that this might be fine is that fact that if you were going to transplant a sticker you'd make the effort to cover up the damage you were trying to hide!

Fair points on the variety of prices and codes. The only thing I'd say is that the POTF and Ewoks aren't the same clearance stock. And the Jedi card would depend on whether Kenner or Palitoy/Tri. Frickin PB. That thread was an interesting read and great reference.

And you're right, Mini99: finding a TL in that condition is a miracle in its own right, especially such a heavy figure. Would grace any TL collection for sure :)

Awesome MOC's guys, would it be bad if I admit that I might have done a 'Homer Simpson drool' when looking at them? 8)

I reckon it's OK. Chris (the seller) has had it since I knew him at uni in the early-mid 1990s. Not sure that a sticker swop back then was really such a thing for a trilogo, but you never know, I somehow ended up with a fake baggie that I bought around '96... its also been in a box (with all the others he will be listing over the next few weeks/months) on Jabba's Palace for 15-20 years, so its not been doing the rounds as much as many bashed bubbles we all get to see. Bit of a black hole collection in its own right I guess.

Lovely Luke XW. I tend not to be into older chatacters on Jedi cards ( not that I can afford them on their original cards either I should add ) but I love Luke XW on Jedi. Beautiful.

Awesome Luke Palitoy mate, very mint.
Lots of LXW being shown on here of late.

Here's my first purchase since May.

PBP LXW, stood next to a regular Luke. Complementary Pencil Topper sneaked into the parcel by Mark Baker. My first PBP.
