Thanks Mini99, easy when you know how! :oops: :lol:

Here’s my Power Droid run couple of loose and a 20 Back-G. Also a General Mills MOC which was one of my first MOC purchases back in 1999. Badly faded unfortunately from those early years, but still love it even thou it may be a TT. Never plan on selling it so not sure I want to know. :)

No problem, a pleasure.
Nice SW 20 backs there, I really like the Boba offer on these cards.
I have never seen a card stripped of all the red pigment before, I assume sunlight did this?

Yeah love the 20 backs with the Boba Fett offer, would like to get the first 12 on those cards as well one day.

Yeah the fading happened when I lived in St Ives and worked most evenings or was out on the town. Although was in a north facing room with curtains, in the summer the sun bleached it in the evenings. The thing is I didn’t notice it happening at the time because it was gradual and I never saw the sun shining on it. :cry:

Thanks again for tech help. :)

When I was 3 my parents sat me down and explained to me I will be having a little brother. As a treat and I suppose because I was no longer their only child, they gave me this

I was so thrilled with it I named my brother power droid for the whole of my mums pregnancy. :)

This really is the most special piece in my whole collection and I'd get rid of everything before I parted with him.

I love that the little fella's been chosen so early on for this, he's absolutely one of my favourite figures. Great to see so many different MOC pictures, but this thread really needs Frank!

Here's my 21-b Kenner MOC.

That's a cracking reseal and I also love the faded moc that theforceuk posted for some reason, he looks like he's in a heavy smoke environment!

Thanks Ian. I resealed it myself and it came out pretty well, I thought. It will certainly do me just fine until I win the lottery and can upgrade to the real thing ;-)

A great story. I had an exact same experience the day my little brother was born and received a MOTU Fakor

Hi guys, another here that could never bloody find one as a kid, think that maybe my fascination with the little blue box, I spent time in the midlands & in Hamburg as a kid & could not find one in either location, sadly all my stuff is packed away in boxes for a ending house move but will dig though what photos I have to add what I can to the thread for you guys.

The upside down sticker is a known error rather that a variation, sure after hour after hour sat on a production line sticking these on folks got bored & complacent & either deliberately or accidentally put them on the wrong way round, the white squares on the sticker are fairly common,I have a few like it as well as I think 2 with the reverse sticker, I also recently picked one up which is a new error on me, it is missing the place line on it, but it's still sat stateside with a friend, be great to get Chris Hibbard on here as he is also a huge PD focus nut & has some awesome stuff.

These are the 3 variants I know of to date, though am clueless to the lighter colour one in the middles history, 2 regulars & a short V but the middles one is cast in a different colour plastic as you can see.
