NEW 12C PALITOY VARIANT FOUND !!!!!!!!!!

Postby Davaider » Sun Jul 01, 2018 11:02 am

Hiya Folks, As Stated on the Mr Palitoy Website there is only A and B version for 12 back Palitoys. Well After 40 years of the 1st Release Of 12 Back Palitoys, I Can confirm that this is incorrect and that there is an A Version , B version and C version. Yes you heard right a C version ! Look carefully on the C version for added words.

I see nothing! :lol:

Read them word for word and seems the same as the B version.

This is an amazing discovery by Dav. Never thought we would see a new major variant this late in the game.

So far, R2D2, Vader, Stormie, Jawa, Sanbpeople and DSC are confirmed to exist on this card.

So we are still looking for an example 12C Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO and Ben. Han does not exist as he was on 12A only. Please check your cards everyone!!!

:D

Third line of text down is extended with ‘large size non die cast’ in the 12C vs the 12B

Excellent find! Presumably someone complained because their Vader didn’t fit in their die cast tie - nuts!

And why didn’t Kenner make the same change?
