A few days ago I got this danish childhood lot. I think it would be interesting to see which variants that matches with the cardbacks :D
This is the first time I have found cardbacks in a danish childhood lot all the other cardbacks I have is some friends have found for me, some I have found i shops or bought from other collectors. Funny and very strange it should take me 15 nearly 16 years for me to find cardbacks in a danish childhood lot :shock: The funny thing is 2 days later I found another danish childhood lot with cardbacks :shock: I got the second lot today and I will share that one with you in the weekend. The solo hoth cardback have a clipper sticker on the backside 8) But here is the first lot :D

Hi michael thanks mate for the very kind words as always :wink: Yes it was like christmas or like winning in the lottery when I got 2 childhoods lots with cardbacks. I will upload the 2nd lot when I get home :D

I did not have time to look so much at the figures, I just took some pictures of them, but he have a big scar on the leg and is no coo. Funny that he have been sold on a palitoy card with a clipper sticker :D But I look at the paint in the weekend. But I think he is PBP.

I find them on danish auction sites, danish sites where people can sell what they want and then I have some ads on some danish internet sites where
people can contact me. I have heard from friends that I could get more if I also join facebook, but I am still thinking about that :D
I have also found a few on evil bay :lol: Some years ago I found a childhood lot from a guy from the uk on evil bay. He was living in denmark and he had moved all his star wars toy from the uk to denmark and when I saw the lot on evil bay then I asked him if it was his childhood items and he said yes. I got it very cheap no one else was bidding on the lot and there was a dark brown hoth rebel soldier in the lot :D
But I do not get all the childhood lots for peanuts. Some childhood lots I may pay a lot of cash to get if I want them. I think the most expensive childhood lot I have bought did cost me £700. I think there is a lot of childhood lots on evil bay, you have to ask seller about it is childhood lot, sometimes you can also see it is a childhood lot but always ask if you want to be sure :wink:

Thanks for the kind words :D

2 days after I found the last childhood lot of cardbacks, then I found this childhood lot. Unfortunately seller had sold the vehicles and figures 15 min. before I contacted him. So first I thought I was not lucky with this lot, then I saw a part of a corner of a cardback on the picture of the lot. I asked him if it was cardbacks for the figure and he told yes and did not think any one wanted them so they were not in the lot that was for sale. So I told him I would love to buy them, I am sure he would have thrown them out in the garbage if I had not asked about buying them from him. He was surprised that I wanted to buy them. So I saved this cardbacks from the trash :D
