My latest acquisition is one of my biggest purchases to join my collection. Want to thank Paul Maclin for offering these and allowing me to pay over time.

Photo Negatives of the first mock-up series 3 Snowspeeder, Cloud Car and Slave 1 card backs. These were used in the process to make mock-up card backs that eventually saw hand made/cut bubbles and the toys applied for the 1980 Kenner Catalog and Toy Fair displays.

This lot was a stay in contact purchase from an eBay seller. Amazed that after over 2 months they came back to me with this lot and we could agree a price. They were in the states so Iain helped with shipping in exchange for a couple of trades and purchases!

The Nein Nunb and IG-88 have Italian distribution stickers on

Nice Moto Jet! I have a boxed one but the bike has some sun damage so I keep looking out for a replacement one. That's a decent price.

As for the die cast negatives.... wow!!! :shock:

Lovely Bi-logo box Carl. When you say correct bike does that mean there are there no flaps?
