I am very fond of the Droids series. The figures were also released by Kenner Canada in Bi-lingual text and some by Glasslite in Brazil. Added interest to the Droids series figures includes the cross over to include Boba Fett, the last 17 A-Wing pilot, new versions of C-3PO and R2-D2, the inclusion of a Coin with every figure the same as POTF, the ultra-rare 2nd series Vlix only available by Glasslite, and the aborted other second series figures.
Nice picture from a book
I like the glasslite figures
but the cardbacks on the canadian figures is not me
I got an offer 13 years ago to buy a Vlix for 500 Euro. But I said no, today I would have said yes
The 'book' is the Kenner 1986 toy fair catalog. I think you were offered the same Vlix as me
which I also turned down.
The Kenner Canada card fronts were rather curious. They were truly generic in that not even the name of the figure was printed. Like the Glasslite fronts, the Kenner Canada had Vlix on the front, even though he did not appear on the back of the card as an available figure. I have a couple of them
