Yes there are as they come up on eBay quite often and listed as so (not always though)...

I simply missed the Kenner logo as noticed the pristine cardback.

I was also around when it all hit the fan around 5 years ago on the forums and remember the Stormtrooper Hoth being one of the most reproduced he'd done.

This 'MOC' maybe a result of a 'Toy Toni' MOC which basically a 'collector' had a load of old stock (figures, bubbles and cardbacks) and decided to put them together in the 90's and sell them off as vintage. Here's a link to show what cardbacks he 'reproduced'. (scroll down a little on the page)

The Hoth Stormtrooper was one of his biggest sellers. Not to put one off but simply to try and inform.


It's a Kenner card... :roll:


Sorry, my apologies. I missed the logo. :oops:


We've all done it :wink:

I've got a very niche and small sub-focus of wonky bubbled MOCs! My favourite is a hoth rebel solider which is almost horizontal (looks like been on the lash).

This is only slightly wonky and looks absolutely fine. If graded, I don't think the minor wonk will affect the grade. Nice looking MOC.

Thanks a lot, you’ve all helped a lot!! Although not sure if I will buy yet as the pric is a bit on the steep side I feel...

£235, I feel like that’s overpriced but I may be wrong

Seems a lot to me, but it’s not the most common Jedi card. I certainly wouldn’t go that high, but then I’m pretty tight with vintage Star Wars. :)

That also seems a bit steep to me but you will pay a premium for clear bubble ROTJ kenners

Absolutely, with the bubble that clear I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s about right!

Very true. Kenner bubbles are renowned for yellowing so finding one in this condition is pretty good.

Yeah I know they’re rare but I bought a 48 back ROTJ MOC Snaggletooth with a clear bubble in better condition and that only cost me £190
