Beautiful moc that you have, it looks fantastic. I guess it must be very rare, never seen one with a guy with glasses in the top left corner of the moc :shock: :lol: is it a factory error ? :lol:

Thanks guys. :) The 41 and 48 backs are my favorites.
I do have to admit that one of the pilots is missing the tips of his fingers on one hand.

What a tremendous collection! I love all the different cardbacks you have and the figures are great too! :-)

Thanks for sharing, and thanks too for joining in so regularly with these Toy of the Week threads. I really look forward to seeing what others post, so it's great to have a regular poster like yourself sharing your collection with the Forum.

Great collection apack and lovely example mini

A weird story about this CCP. I bought a 79 back Han Hoth from Australia and this 79 back CCP arrived instead. Packed in a tiny box and it smashed through the bubble so a real waste.

A few days later the Han arrived in a similar box and had also smashed through. The Australian cards have such yellow bubbles and are so fragile.

Anyway the seller let me keep the CCP to offset he damaged Han but I sold it shortly after.

It may not look much but 79 backs are hard to find

Nice photo, Andy, and an interesting (horror!) story :shock:

I'm very sorry to hear that both MOCs got damaged, and annoyed on your behalf that the seller didn't protect the bubbles and pack the cards better! Honestly, it really makes me mad; these things have survived unscathed for up to 40 years, but all it takes is one thoughtless idiot and they get ruined in a heartbeat :evil:

OK, here's my Bespin Air Force lineup, complete with COO's especially for Lars :D

A quick glance at most Cloud Car Pilots might make you think they are all the same, however a closer inspection reveals a surprising number of small differences which will interest variant collectors and send everyone else to sleep :-D

From left to right, I have:

1 ) a round belt buckle, 3 vertical squares on holster front, light yellow boots, very dark grey belt, pale pink face, dark orange helmet, long thin neck, narrow stance, which I have paired with light grey accessories (rightly or wrongly!).

2 ) an octagonal belt buckle, 1 square and 1 vertical rectangle on holster front, light yellow boots, light grey belt, peach face, light orange helmet, long thin neck, wide stance, light grey accessories, soft sculpt torso.

All the rest also have octagonal belt buckles with 1 square and 1 vertical rectangle on the holster front, and I have given them (rightly or wrongly) light grey accessories, apart from #7, which I have given (for the hell of it!) dark grey / brown accessories, and the Lili Ledy at #9 which has darker accessories. They all (apart from the Lili Ledy at #9) also have dark grey belts, and also all (apart from #7 & #9) have soft sculpt torsos:

3 ) slightly darker yellow boots, dark peach face, light orange helmet, long thin neck, narrow stance.

4 ) light yellow boots, pink face, dark orange helmet, long thin neck, narrow stance.

5 ) light yellow boots, dark peach face, mid orange helmet, slightly fatter neck, wide stance.

6 ) light yellow boots, dark peach face, mid orange helmet, no neck, narrow stance.

7 ) slightly darker yellow boots, pink face, dark orange helmet, fat neck, narrow stance, shiny fine sculpt torso.

8 ) very pale yellow boots, pink face, dark orange helmet, fat neck, narrow stance.

9 ) Lili Ledy, bright canary yellow boots, dark blue / grey belt, pink face, dark orange helmet, fat neck, narrow stance, matte fine sculpt torso, very dark grey accessories (sadly missing the communicator :-()

Looks like a squadron! 8)
Really like the PBP one, such a eye popping yellow.

Thanks for the kind comments on mine.

Thanks both of you :-)

I forgot to point out (for the benefit of those who care! I know not everyone does ;-)) just what is different about each one, so I'll edit the post and add a few lines.
