cool loose cardbacks,are there different potf cardbacks ? or is the potf cardback the same as the moc that you have ?

Thanks Lars,
I believe that there is only the one POTF cardback, the MOC and the cardback that I have are the same anyway.


thanks for the info, I guess potf did not make different cardbacks :wink:

Love that Tri Logo Han, the way that it’s displayed on the card is so much nicer than the POTF.
I’ll get one one day to add to my Han in Carbonite run!

Great collection, Lars! Nick's quite right, although I prefer POTF cardbacks to Tri-logo ones generally, there's no doubt that the Han in Carbonite figure is better displayed / presented on the TL cardback.

Thanks for sharing :-)

thanks mate for the very kind words, I got it in a trade with collector in denmark. I gave him a Amanaman POTF moc for it. After thinking about it POTF was not me so I choose to trade my POTF moc away and one of them was my Amanaman for this Tri-logo solo :D

The picture is good as well, but no, I was meaning that on the Tri-logo card the figure is displayed on top of the carbonite block inside the bubble so you can actually see Han without opening it. With the POTF version the figure is beneath the carbonite inside the bubble so you can't see Han unless you break it open. I like to see the figures inside their bubbles, and the POTF Han in Carbonite is the only MOC where you can't do this.

That was a good trade, Tri Logo Hans are not easy to find in that condition.

thanks mate, I also thought it was a good trade :D I do not know how hard they are to find today, but when he offered me his solo in a trade for the amanaman then I said yes :D

I don't know, but perhaps it was the fact that it takes up less space in the packing cases?

Maybe you are correct, it is always about money, more plastic, cost more money :wink: but then again why did the tri-logo have bigger bubbles ? :?
