I don't have any close ups. I've looked at a few and can see the seals look dodgy.

Compared against 2 used cardbacks I can see that the used cardbacks both used double stem bubbles, one of which has
the circle pattern at the top and pressing on the back that was done by the factory machine.

There are the same print flaws on the AFA 85 MOC and the used cardback done by the factory machine
so nothing to go on there.

This one passes for now.

And the AFA report has 10 graded. 3 are 85, 4 are 80, the other 3 I don't know, so it's not exactly raining minty walrusmen for this figure.

But... between 2007 and 2013 his ebay account has sold:-

17 x Palitoy ROTJ Walrusman 45bk (+ 1 Clipper ES

Which is worrying...

Have added Walrus Man to the matrix on my guide. There's no smoke without fire.

I've picked all the AFA graded items sold from ToyToni website that scored higher than 85 and looked up AFA for how many exist.
All the AFA grades of 95 have all been from ToyToni sold stock and I would imagine that the majority of 90's are also from ToyToni as he had more than one for sale.

The interesting thing that I'm trying to show is that if you compare the scores to the equivalent Kenner cards hardly anything scores higher than 85.
The irony is that the only items scoring 90 (ROTJ 77 Bossk) came from ToyToni. Now you might think that it's just down to more Palitoy cards surviving but if
you pick out Palitoy cards that are not on the unused card list the numbers come out like the Kenner examples. Shouldn't there be just as many good Palitoy Hoth Han's as
German cards?

Toni said this to me on that subject via email:-

"hi yes that sounds about right- despite there being several lists with large numbers of loose cards as far as I know only a handful actually turned up-they came my way and were bought by an American guy as in his post I don't remember which figures they were .Probably best to mention that Arthur Bailey died about 5-6 ago .Toni"

so any updates on the situation?

In the big thread there seems to be a lot of "is this correct or a toni recard?" going on still.

has anyone heard from toni?

his silence on the matter rings alarm bells.

Have analysed all 23 of my suspected Tonis, posted analysis and pictures for each along with a used shop sold cardback, and a summary/conclusion at the end.

I welcome comments on what I have posted.

I have eliminated 65A and 65B cards from the Toy Toni Matrix. All my examples and the ones I can find on google images are 65C. So if you have the Nien Nunb
offer on the back you are safe, if you have the Chewbacca offer you are not. It appears that Logray and Leia Boushh can only be found as 65C on Toy Toni stock,
both of these card/figure combos were thought not to exist until I looked at mt Tonis and googled an AFA graded Logray on the web.

I have update my guide to reflect this and also to highlight that the sub variations 45CC, 45CN, 65CG and 65CN are not from Toni's stock.

This should further help to die down affected cards and help AFA/UKG to make some informed choices when cleansing their databases if they choose to use my guide.

Ok, have rewritten the 45b, 45c and 65d with single stem bubbles with embossed numbers in the correct places.

I've recently written to UKG and enquired whether they are still grading the effected card backs. I received this reply:

"due to the on going situation and the fact that it is now a legal matter we have ceased grading on some of the carded palitoy and GM figures, this is until the matter has been resolved."

Do we know how far into the legal process this has gone?

UKG are sticking their head in the sand by suggesting legal action is stopping them grading TT junk. They should just tell the truth that they won't grade any suspect figure/cardback combinations rather than hiding behind some made up legal argument.

They sound like a premier league footballer who's papped in a compromising position with a page 3 model. They need to man up and stop waiting for AFA to decide what to do.
