Carded and loose. I was aiming to collect every figure on every cardback. I got up to 110 carded I think it was and a nearly complete loose run. Had some real beauties in the carded collection as well. Some have gone to guys on here. Also had a Yoda side focus which I've still got some of it left.
Were they Palitoy or Kenner or a mix?
I went down the Kenner route. More affordable and readily available.
Which was your rarest piece and your favourite piece?
Because he's holding a thermal detonator!!

Cough, POTF Nikto, cough...
Is POTF Nikto one of the tough ones?

Probably as tough as Anakin, I’ve certainly seen more Anakins & Yaks than I have Niktos

I owned a POTF Nikto for about a year, that piece was a beauty.

My favourite piece, I had 3:

A ROTJ Power Droid, I loved the artwork on the carback.
Tri Logo Luke Stromtrooper, always liked the design of the figure, just wish they'd done a Han Solo to go with it.
Tri Logo Yoda. Imaculate cardback and was a great piece in my Yoda focus.

The one I had was ungraded and I'm sure when I had it there was only 11 graded ones on AFA so pretty hard to find.

I collected POTF the first time I had a few rare ones I think AT AT Driver, Gam Guard it was 17 years ago so my memory is a bit rusty, I remember trying to buy a Nikto but it never happened. I bet the Power Droid was nice, that seems to be tough on any card!

Speaking of POTF, just picked this up. Have been holding out for a tri logo but they just weren’t coming up so had to get one as prices seem to be getting steeper.

Lovely EV Benny.

The POTF range gets a bit if a bashing but I've always liked them.

Far to many pickups since my last look in here to mention but have to say fantastic proof @BruceW congrats! Really like @StarWarsFan headset too. I've never seen one of those close up before. It almost looks like a prop

Here are a couple of my latest buys. A Clipper X Wing cardback to add to the run, with an X wing and bubble added for display, and a micro collection Luke Bespin test. Quite a few of these about but apparently they were used to test how much detail Kenner could get a way with on the whole line. The belt and figure are a bit more basic than the production figure behind him, and another figure with a big head small head difference.

Also making good progress on my loose 12" run. Here's Darth after a quick arm repair.
