Miscards

Postby subzero » Tue Nov 21, 2017 4:20 pm

Just having a look at some good ol' vintage SW porn on google..... :wink: and noticed this 'Vader' miscard, I find it quite interesting to look at.

It's got me thinking do collectors hunt these down at all as a kind of niche?, although just a factory error i'm taking it they are way up there with some of the rarest figures?

How crazy do these miscards get?, such as a Jawa on a Stormie card, or a Wicket on a Yoda card :lol: .. does anyone on here own any cool miscards?

Gary Smith owns a fair few, think he has a limelight somewhere on here. This interview from Joes site will give you a decent insight

So is your yak/warok miscard a genuine miscard as I believe the small bubble miscards are considered Intentional miscards ?

A lot of people collect them as part of their focus. For example Rich has a cool R5D4 / Biker Scout miscard as part of his R5D4 collection, you can see on his limelight here

I love the miscard focus!

I remember seeing them pop up now and again on ebay around 2003-2005 and not really go for much money, seems to be quite a following for them now though, weequay on a barada card springs to mind

I've had carded figures with the wrong weapons inside in the past but never with the wrong figure

be interested in knowing how many exhist

Cool Yak miscard, I can see that he was also packed without the staff?

Also neat Biker Scout on the R4 card. :D

Yes, I also own a Yak with Palace Blaster which has the smaller miscard bubble and on the correct cardback.

I bought a trilogo imperial dignitary nearly 10 years ago from snoopers/toy toni that had a palace blaster

ended up selling it for a bit more than I paid for it

that's the only pic I have of it but you can see the blaster in the bubble (no idea if it was legit though)

I have a small run of miscards. 7 to be presise. They tend not to come up much at the moment and people think they are gold when they do but there are a few around. Hope
To add a couple more next year. Gary has the most comprehensive run of tri miscards but there are a few foreign variants that he doesn’t bother with. Iain gravitates towards these and Frank has a few as well, plus a couple of Facebook guys actively persue them as well. I guess it is niche and can be daunting to get into.
