Exciting news in the workd of die cast. Yet another cardback variation has been identified and one more card back for Mr Palitoy to find!

There was an error on the first issue Landspeeder with a mirror image shown of the toy (lower photo on the SW12A), that was subsequently corrected on the SW12B. There doesn't seem much difference in rarity but it's amazing that it wasn't identified before - maybe because no-one was looking?

I'll update the matrix this weekend, but essentially all foreign released Land Speeders are corrected SW12B

Thanks both, there’s been two additions in the last 12 months, I love die cast for that very reason. So little is documented and I’m learning all the time

Seem to have stabilised around the £250 - £300 mark loose but I'm sensing a bit of a drop off in die cast prices so maybe hang on a bit and see if £150-£200 becomes the norm again?

good luck Les!

One for you die cast variant fiends. A great and well researched piece by Justin is now up in the featured article section of the website. Some really clear photos of those differences. Great job Justin! I've also updated the ESB 11C page to feature factory codes at the request of Jason.

It’s the last article on the page

Happy it’s finally up for everyone to check out. Hopefully more variants surface from other collectors checking their Die Cast collections.

Been very little new content on the website recently so very happy to post this new article about the Tsukuda metal kits. I knew nothing about them before Marc Kuin got in touch. Marc’s article is the last tab on the ‘featured article’ section

Hope it’s of interest
