General Madine Figure Focus

Postby lejackal » Thu Apr 14, 2016 9:41 pm

Okay, now you've picked yourself up off the floor and stopped laughing does anyone

A) know of one?

B) know of any major expensive cards in putting a few together, apart from the obvious trilogo 'ahem' issue?

There's no reason why you can't focus on any character.

Madine was the first ROTJ figure I bought.

Gutted to discover my neighbour had bought a biker scout!

The tri logo will be the tough nut to crack, but in answer you your question - no I don't know anyone else estranged enough to focus on Madine :lol:

There is a Toltoys version that will be reasonably tough to get. In fact I think there is even a variant of the 65back Toltoys Madine.

Got this photo from an old Sale Thread here on SWFUK.

But apart fro the Tri-logo version, what else is out there? Is he on a Canadian card? Meccano ROTJ? Does anyone know?

Cheers

I do remember seeing someone with a small focus of him, cant remember who though. I remember seeing pic of a triple offer card plus a few more around it
Besides the Trilogo I would think maybe a Toltoys would be a tad on the expensive side

All I've found so far are offer variants 65/77 and a clipper one so I think this could be fairly cheap to put together a few cards. I definitely cannot afford a Tri even if one could be unlocked from a collection and I assume Toltoys would be high 3 or even 4 figures based on what I've sen for other characters so certainly wouldn't be rushing for that either.
That said, never say never.

Go for it...!

Some really cool pieces out there. Like any Focus I've put together, the fun I found was hunting down all the different cardback etc. It's a great buzz when you find something unique to add to the collection.
Here's just a sample of what a quick search uncovered, Offer cards, twin packs, Clipper, Meccano ....loads to aim for with old Maddy.... :D

I have a nice clipper sticker madine. He's not for sale but was not unreasonably priced. Mine is a palitoy cardback. The one Jeff has a photo of is Kenner so there's 2 more!

He's on tonnes of those Kaybee two packs, could pick up some interesting combinations, that would bolster a Madine focus.

Ben do you know if he has many variations to his battle staff?

There are 2 on TIG, also surprisingly given how modestly priced original Kenner and Palitoy you can still find painstakingly and professionally resealed ones :roll:
