The card backs and figures I've posted were from a childhood collection but it's a good point that he might have had others as well that he didn't keep the card backs (although as it was his father who opened them up for him and also stored these away I have a feeling that these were the only ones he had).TheJabbaWookie wrote: ↑Sun Mar 28, 2021 11:12 amGreat 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 weapons came with that figure and cardback?
Only the blaster that came with Han Solo is most probably incorrect as it didn’t appear until ESB. But this is easily explained as there are so many figures that carry the rebel blaster across the line so he was bound to have a few rebel blasters in his childhood collection.
I did however receive a few more figures that I haven't posted from him which included a Palitoy 30 back Yoda, 3 Palitoy 12 back Stormtroopers, Palitoy 20 back LXW and a Palitoy 12 back Jawa, so it is quite possible that Han's blaster could be LXW's as there was only 1 of these blasters.
I also haven't shown the Stormtroopers or DSC weapon as it's impossible to know what went with what. I do however believe that the Leia blaster is correct to this figure (I know it does look blue but it was more black and it's the flash that's making it appear like that like a couple of the pictures of Chewbacca's nowcaster),and also the sabers as they are the flat chiselled tip ones that seem to only come with the Palitoy A backs (certainly all of the mocs that I've ever seen).
Maybe it's worth taking Han's blaster picture down if you don't think this is right as I'd hate to confuse things.
