Budget Foreign MOCs - Don't all laugh at once

Postby lejackal » Wed Oct 04, 2017 9:41 am

Obviously Palitoy has the likes of WeeQuay, Ree Yees, Klaatu and Logray as budget options, Kenner Canada also has similarly priced budget options. Until recently Meccano had the 20 back Jawa and Clipper Chirpas and Madines are fairly affordable but are there options across the other licence holders?
Is there such a thing as a reasonably priced Ledy or Toltoys?
Top Toys I guess the Stormy is the cheapest?
Was there a Harbert peg warmer?
Just for shits and giggles what about PBP or Poch :lol:

Good question Carl,

Reckon you could put a very nice run of foreign backs together pretty cheap.

Harbert R2D2s were £100 up to a couple of years ago, but have gone crazy now. As you say, Meccano Jawa has doen the same.

Tsukuda ROTJ figures are still cheap, doesnt seem to be any premium in that sticker.

might struggle wirth Ledy and Toltoys though :lol:

Die cast is a good way of getting the foreign logos cheap too.

Fortunately I've got a Palitoy and a Meccano example 8)

I forgot about them but you're right, they do seem to be around the £50-80 mark still

You can get cheap Toltoys ROTJ MOCs.

They look identical to Kenner but with a Australian address at the bottom instead of Cincinnati.

I believe the cardbacks maybe slightly small as well.

I got a Lily Ledy Biker Scout MOC in nice cond. for just over £100, it's a Kenner logo card but says "made in Mexico" on the back, and has the actual Ledi variant figure packaged inside.

Not a proper Ledy logo MOC but kind of a cheap compromise if you can't afford a ton for the real Ledy :)
Chavs are easily startled, but they will soon be back, and in greater numbers

If you can be flexible about part sealed or even reseals (with original bubbles of course), then you can get some amazingly tough foreign cards for almost sensible money. The hobby has really moved towards a massive condition premium on even very rare cards.
Detailed WTB list here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32243

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

All those German ESB Toy Toni's, I think any of those would be well worth picking up for a sensible price.

Glad you mentioned this Edd, there is a Hoth Snow trooper on Jabba’s at present and this is over £100.
It’s graded of course and disclosed as a TT, what do you consider sensible price for a TT now.
Sorry Carl, I don’t want to hijack the thread.

65 backs with a nn offer on the front as well is the giveaway.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Yes, I'm still laughing at that. Plenty of back slapping going on because it's a lovely AFA 90 for the bargain price of £126, they could have had a lovely real one from me on Friday for £150 :lol:

Phew, thought it was only me that had lost my mind! :shock:
It doesn’t make any sense to me, glad you agree.
