Hi, I will start to post a few bits from my old collection with view to maybe selling some items to buy or maybe swapping. Sorry as I am new and don’t know much about this yet.

I have a Boba Fett card, but he does not show on the back, is this usual ? similar with a Zuckuss card ? Pictures of Bobba Fett example included, I also have the figure which has been stored in an old tub and still smells new as not played with, will def have the gun too in there. Is it better to sell together or seperate as may keep the figure, Interested to know if the cards which as described above make any difference.....

Many thanks
Dave

I have the same situation with 4-Lom and zuckuss and also ugnaught (bad condition)..... also they don’t say Palitoy or Kenner on the first 2, but says on the back

Look very closely at the empire strikes back figures on the boba and ugnaught card. You will notice that none of them exactly look like the figures. This is because on the back of that card they are all prototypes. The card is the palitoy 30 back and is quite a unique card.

There is loads of info about palitoy around the forums. They were the uk distributor of Star Wars toys.

Now, on to the boba fett 30 back cardback. There are several things you should know:

They are rare
They are the card boba fett debuted on in the uk
Palitoy is popular in the uk
The boba fett is the gap in a lot of collectors that have attempted 30 back runs.

My advice to you is not to accept any back door pm offers, and if you are going to trade it be certain of the trade. It is worth several hundred pounds. None of the others are particularly valuable but that one certainly is.
