Not sure if these are genuine varients or could the sticker be removed, turned and then reapplied?


I think it is real and I think it is just an factory error. Just like the one I have with a white button. I think they ran out of red paint in the printer and they used the sticker on a Power Droid.

Great thread this !

Had this PD Moc for 15 years or so nice story behind it ... bought on a carboot sale for £20 and the seller said it was a reseal but under close inspection I don’t believe it is , poor picture as it’s the only one I have but I’ll upload some more clearer pictures soon and maybe you guys can give me your thoughts on it ?

Love the cardback image and colours, I still get flashbacks from missing out on a ROTJ MOC for £50 on ebay a few months back. :( :( :(

Here are my Power Droids. I'm always going to be fond of any of the first 20 figures as they hold so many happy childhood memories for me :-)

And here's a humble reseal, but I still like it :-)

Assuming that you have the picture stored on the I-Pad you are using, look below the text box there are some tabs, the right one is titled “attachments” click this and then select the picture from your photo library.
Then once the file has uploaded, click the preview to see that the picture has loaded the correct way round, and then select submit as nirmal.
Hope that this helps.
