Harbert Rarity Information

Postby Wreck-It Ralph » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:21 pm

Hi

Whilst looking for different Star Wars items I have come across what I presume is a 12 Back Harbert Vader MOC are all 12 figures available on 12 back cards and are the remaining 8 available on a 20 back card?

Could you also tell me what the order of rarity is of these figures?

I have looked for an existing post that answers this question and can't find one but if I have missed it could you point me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi

In your 12 back rarity list you only show 7 figures what about the other 5?

What back does Yoda and Fett have?

Are there any books you could recommend on Harbert MOC and thier rarity.

Thanks for your help.

There are no Harbert books. There is a PBP/POCH one which is well worth getting but I think stock is running low on them

Wow, you have very expensive taste. Palitoy, Harbert, Meccano and now Poch. Most people may have 1-2 of each but you thinking of a run, good luck to you mate!! 8)

Whilst looking for Palitoy I came across some Meccano and Harbert MOC's and liked the look of them hence the reason I thought about collecting them as the Palitoy pieces I need seem to be in very short supply. I have not seen POCH and no nothing about them and would only collect it if I liked it. The likelihood is I will not be able to put run's together even if I wanted to as many of these items are not available to buy, since collecting I have only seen one MOC Harbert and that was Vader. To a certain extent anyone who collects high grade Kenner, Palitoy, Meccano,Harbert etc has expensive taste due to the price of the MOC's

Anthony,

What is it you'd like to achieve? If you just want a selection of cool stuff then go for the cards you've mentioned - but if you're a completest then you need to pick your battles.

A set of the first 12 or 20 on Harberts is a near impossible task. Han is incredibly tough, with only a handful known to exist.

Poch/Pbp cards look amazing, but again a complete set is impossible.

Meccano starts to enter the realms of at least being possible - the 12bk cards are very tough once and some like Luke are easily £10k figures in high grade. The 20bks are more sensible, but still a massive challenge.

With all of these, you need to leave aspirations of an AFA85 set at the door - I don't think it would be a possible goal. Some of the biggest Meccano collectors still have partially opened cards in their collections because MOCs just arent available.
Detailed WTB list here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32243

Includes: Loose figures, Palitoy MOCs, Meccano 20bks, Vehicles, Mailers, Paperwork and more.
