That’s a fantastic re seal Ian.
Here’s mine, unfortunately the bubble is very yellow, almost looks like C3PO! :D

Wow Ian, it could have tricked me. Looks like a moc, what a beauty. But then again I am not an expert in moc and bubbles :lol:

Thanks for sharing it with all of us 8)

Thanks Lars.
No it’s not a re seal.
It’s absolutely immaculate other than the bubble being yellow.
That’s the price we pay collecting Kenner ROTJ MOCs!

Great stuff apack! Well done for keeping that cardback. It may only be a partial one, but it still displays well and I've always liked the Death Star Droid card picture. Thanks for sharing :-)

OK, here's mine. The 'MOC' is another reseal, I'm afraid, but one I'm happy with.

As for the loose, I always find the vac-metalized figures are quite difficult to photograph well (or maybe I'm just a crap photographer! :lol: ), so I have included a couple of shots of the front and back of them to try to show them as well as possible.

I have four variants; a shiny and a dull finish 'nipple' chested, 'buttonless' arm variant, and a shiny and dull finish no 'nipple', button-armed variant. I'm still not 100% convinced the dull finish 'variants' aren't just how shiny ones end up looking after they've been played with, but then again, the difference in the finishes, both on the front and back of the figures does seem pretty uniform, so who knows...? And for those struggling to tell the difference, the shiny ones are at each end! :lol:

Lastly, god knows what happened to Kenner's quality control with the black paint on the poor old Death Star Droid, but it can be really, REALLY tough to find one with perfect paint, even carded. Perhaps the vac-metalised surface didn't accept the paint very well? :?
