Awesome Dengar, Andy :) A pleasure to even see one. Got to say, ink touch ups don't bother me much at all. I'd take an ink touch up over a creased bubble any day.

Of course, I may be slight biased given that in the early 2000s I may have been responsible for one or two :/ It was a different time!

Mark those Palitoys are fantastic, they look really good for reseals! Don't suppose there are any more where those came from?!

Andy that is a great Dengar, one of my most wanted, lovely rare acquisition.

Cheers,

Andy
Looking for Palitoy 12 back Jawa and Empire carded Dengar, Leia Hoth, and Snowtrooper. Damaged cards or reseals OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

So today Walrusman finally arrived which completes my Kenner debut 20 backs. Ok not true debuts but I would need to sell some body parts to get a set of 20 a's. 4 years to finish this run, not bad by my tight arse standards. :D

That Walrus Man looks great, I really like the Bobba Fett offer on these 20 backs.
This would have fitted in nicely to the run that I am trying to put together...:roll:

Everyone has been very busy since I last looked in, especially Dublinjeff!

That dewback is nice but the ?bilogo ROTJ Wampa is very special. Don't see many of those.

This cardback may not look too special but it's the only evidence for a 21 back land speeder that I've ever seen. Time to update the die cast matrix
