Regardless of then being proofs or samples or just unused cards, the price of these was an amazing steal. Especially that Fett. :shock:

I was very surprised they didn't go higher. Typically in the past unused cardbacks have sold for around 40-50% of the equivalent proof card value although more recently I've often seen them sold for similar prices to proof cards which seems crazy.

To me this indicates earlier cards were assembled in HK as none of the loose cards have surfaced. All of the Palitoy 41 back cards have a K or S factory code on them to indicate that they were produced in HK factories in the same way the 45cg, 45cn etc were produced.

The numbered bubbles used on the 45B single stem cards are also used on the 45A cards, this could point at 45A cards being assembled in the UK, but without any unused cards or suspect Toy Tonis on 45A, it speculation to say that.

Very interesting Jason. Im pretty sure ive got some Kenner cards/bubbles at home that are numbered too. Ive never understood why Toni apparently got all of the said cards aswell? Id hazard a safe bet that Toni wasn't the only one being naughty :)

Also, and this is a point over looked that ive mentioned before and not only in my previous post - is the better business decision to card them in HK or in the UK? Im still on the fence about it, and still think the figure is made in HK - not the packaging. Why would they box the larger ships here, and not the figures? It doesn't make any sense???

I’ve been meaning to get around to taking a decent picture of the unused card backs.

I was watching all those when they were on ebay, I knew they were quite special and unique. And I couldn't believe what they sold for in the end! The Luke and 3P0 ones are very unusual. Cool that they stayed together, nice buy.
