It does seems that most of these cards that you see are in good condition.

That's a lovely condition card there without much yellowing on the bubble either :-)

Yes, there are a lot of good condition Rombas out there, and I think that's probably because it's also one of the commonest POTF MOCs to be had. There's certainly a hell of a lot more of them than there are Luke Stormtroopers and Pop-Up R2-D2s! :lol:

I know, it's one of those really weird ones! It's something you think you should spot immediately, but loads of people don't ;-)

And to round out Kenner's incompetence, the Tri-Logo Paploo card shows Romba!

I even have a photograph of it before it went into storage, out of sunlight in a dry, cool environment. Years later when I removed it to display it, BANG! Badly browned / yellowed blister, just like almost every other POTF card ;-). I don't know what kind of cheap and nasty plastic Kenner were using for those things, but the best I can say about it is that they were pretty consistent with its usage across the POTF range! :lol:

That pic was taken late 2016. I was lucky enough to pick up a almost full case of them, all with clear bubbles


sounds like a fantastic lot of moc that you picked up in 2016 8)

Thanks, yes this one does appear to have survived the “yellow bubble plague” reasonably well.

Lars: Thanks for this Toy of the Week idea, I think that I have learnt something new out of every one.

I am glad you like it and that you can learn something from it :wink:
