12 BACK PALITOYS

Postby Davaider » Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:49 pm

Hello Guys.....12 Back Palitoys......... 3 Versions ? A ,B C ?
Version A ....”Laser Light and Sound”

Version B......Blacked out “Laser Light and Sound” However I believe this was originally Version A card and has been put through the Printing Press again with the Black Plate been altered to cover the “Laser Light and Sound “ Text. I Think every 12 back Figure was printed as an A Version , Whether every 12 back Palitoy Figure on Version A got released in the shops is a different story. With the factory putting Version A back through the printing press to create Version B they would of saved a small fortune.

Version C......Printed without the “Laser and Light Sound Correctly. Rather than use the “Blacked Out Method” and have finished putting the Version A cards through the Printing press, They used all 4 colours to completely not see the “Laser and Light Sound” so it becomes jet black. ....Has anyone got a “Version C” where you cannot see the black out to cover the “Laser and Light Sound”

I have had this thought for quite a while and only today a final check on the Mr Palitoy page discovered they are aware of the “blackout” method and the Laser and Light text is slightly visible on B cards

Cool , I should of checked my B cards before posting to see if I can see 2 variations.
1 with the blacked out method where you can vaguely see the “ Laser and Light sound”
The other variation where you cannot see the blacked out method and cannot see the “Laser and Light Sound text at all.
I will check mine when I get a chance , probably would of helped to check them before posting this Thread :D
