Is the Trilogo Leia white dress as rare as/hard to get hold of as the ROTJ version?

Don't think there is much in it between a Tri-logo and a Kenner Jedi. Palitoy Jedi Leia original, different league of toughness to get :!:

Does anyone one know if Luke came on a Palitoy card with blue saber. Sorry if that's a stupid question? :oops: :lol:


Yep he did, this was mine that I had about 8 years ago, long gone unfortunately :cry:


It is v interesting the Palitoy issue with the blue sabre(correct me if I am wrong) has only been seen on the 65C card. Logically one would think it would b on the A card but I think it is something to do with factory of origin. Shawn_K I believe knows all about this. Anyway here is my example with a factory error two blue sabres 8)

Really cool example, does he have a palace blaster as well? Thinking about it along with Han Hoth, Luke Jedi is my favourite figure. I think! :? :lol:

Sorry if this a stupid question, was all the Palitoy Luke Jedi figures packed with the cloak on and only the Kenner ones behind?

Great error card, two blue sabres...never seen that before!

Thanks. I believe Palitoy Luke Jedi MOC with the green sabre can b found not wearing the cloak.

I wish I was working in these factories back in the day, i'm the type to mess about when I get bored, I would have ended up putting like 10 or 15 sabers in bubbles with an upside down figure :lol:

Imagine if something like that existed today 8)

Probably not today, most things can be traced all the way back to a certain worker, and i'm guessing everything gets image scanned or weighed by computer etc for mistakes, back then quality control in factories wasn't that great.

15 years ago in a job we had 2 giant pallets full of small car parts, which some of us had to sort through by hand to check for quality and it took all week, we had to put a green paint dot on the reverse side of every single one with a pen to pass it. 2 weeks later the customer complained that some of them had little xmas trees and smiley faces painted on them so we had the entire lot sent back to sort through again to take them out :twisted:

The fun I could have had in a Palitoy factory. :lol:
