I have a couple of MoC with KayBee clearance stickers that are over existing old stickers, so them having removed one to add their own is very plausible.

Thanks, was just curious as I had read about Kay Bee getting over stock of this type of figure and wondered if they had "re priced" them.

Thanks Andy, thats in great condition as well.
I've not seen the back Bossk stickers before either, always amazed that the weapon is still firmly in his grip after all this time!
Nice one.

Really pleased to add this the collection.
Near perfect bubble for a tri logo and considering it must have been hanging around for a while 79c price on it!

Wow that Biker Scout is a beauty! Here's a pretty unusual MOC I picked up in a trade today with James, I don't have many foreign MOCs so it's nice to add this one to the collection

Some cracking pick ups as usual everyone, nice Walrusman with bossk sticker it's a 21 E according to 12back.com. Love the Bikerscout and the Top Toys Chewbacca is a gem. :)

Nice pick up edd. That is a rare and extremely desirable piece. Most of the Argentinian collectors rate that bad boy as second only to the Luke Jedi in rarity terms. Also the only top toys figure with copyright information on it but still practically a bootleg.

I think sometimes people are a little blasé about top toys since picking up a stormtrooper has never been too difficult but that is a very hard moc to get, make no mistake.

Thanks, yeah they don't seem to have the same appeal as Ledy's or PBP's but maybe that will change!

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!

Thanks for your comments, it does not bother me I was just curious, very pleased to find a Tri Logo card and bubble in this condition.
I have not read about the prices on Kay Bee stickers before, interesting, would like to know more.
I also had a bit of trouble in seeing priced stock having the ticket removed, like you I would have thought that another would be stuck over the top, I have examples of this as I am sure we all do.
I think more likely a ticket has been placed to cover up most of a tear at some point in the past.
As mentioned I am pleased with this my first Tri Logo, this time around, has made me appreciate them more!
Again thanks for the interest.

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.
