Re: Alternative sites to The Imperial Gunnery?

The ICC site is a work in progress by the looks of it and will be a few months from completion as well

SWFUK Repro Clinic

As there have been a few recent enquiries into whether there was a more up-to-date alternative to TIG I wondered if people thought there may be merit in starting a repro clinic on SWFUK? Members could post up photos of any weapons and accessories they were unsure of originality, and myself and other...

Re: Alternative sites to The Imperial Gunnery?

Most of the knowledge has migrated to FB. TIG is no longer updated as the current custodian John Paul Ragusa does not have the appetite to really keep it up to date. If you are on FB the best groups in my opinion are Variant Villains run by Wolff Lipinsky which has loads of detailed weapon sheets an...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

I’m not so hot on trilogos, at-st drivers and Taiwan card backs. So the perfect storm. I do know that it looks like the Taiwan blaster though :D

Re: How do you tell a PBP, Spanish PBP or any PBP Darth Vader from a kenner Darth Vader? Help

Hi, the figure you have is neither a PBP nor Poch figure. It is likely that yours is the Kenner counterpart to the Glasslite figure (family III 2a on the variant villain coo guide below). The standard PBP figure is also a no coo figure but it is the family VI 2a and 2b coo. There is a further harder...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

Yes I believe you’re right. We haven’t seen a Kenner 12 back small head Han with a M4 rebel blaster but Palitoy 12 backs were released later than US 12 backs. I don’t know much about Palitoy 12 backs but guessing the large head Han is much rarer on 12 backs than small head Han just like Kenner. Gues...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

I’m really, really pleased with this new acquisition today, a 1979 UK store display for the Star Wars activity books by British publisher Armada (amended from the original US versions by Random House). This appears unused, the stands on the back haven’t been folded, and it’s holding 5 copies of eac...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

I can help with a Palitoy Pin Head 12 back. Mine comes with a dark green V3: V3 Dark Green.jpg V3 Dark Green 2.jpg Jeremy, this is great. This is more along the lines of what I would of expected. I’ll pm you for more info in the next few days. Just wondered if you think my Han one from the sealed L...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

Thanks again Ian for sharing this picture with us, I really hope many moc will be shared in this thread, the weapons on this moc can help us a lot to place the correct weapon with the correct figure and cardback :wink: I am not 100% sure, but I think there is a little difference on the 2 blasters. ...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

I thought these pictures might be useful as well for Han, especially for his blaster. This is a fully sealed Palitoy 12 back Han cut card that I've mounted to a 12 back card using a top loader (so that it's not been glued). I've included a couple of pictures that I took a while back when I made a t...

Re: Cardbacks with Correct Figure and accessory

Great set Ian. Will prove useful in trying to categorise the first 12 which are really hard. Can I double check with you that in the childhood lot there was only 1 example of Luke, Ben and Vader and that there were no other iterations of Leia (Bespin or Hoth) so that we can conclude that these weap...
