Seems on ebay, prices for the Jabba playset are all over the place. Highest price recently £147 and as low today for £27.30 which maybe an anomaly. I would say for yours with a seemingly nice box and complete i think anywhere between £80 - £100. ROTJ Jigsaws seems to struggle to sell or even get bids at starting prices of £2.50 on ebay. They are very plentiful as well.
On and off small time collector of mainly ROTJ 77 backs, vehicles and loosies since 2000.

Toni had Dutch clipper cards as well as German General Mills cards. These were printed by palitoy as well hence the availability here and as part of the infamous batch sold to Toni.

Imperial commander was on the list with both 45a General Mills cardbacks and 45 clipper cardbacks like this one. The list stated 145 but didn’t state the split.

I would be really reluctant to say either way wether it is or isn’t, and have always been a little wary of anything on the list, but that’s just me. What I will say though is I haven't yet seen one that has an aged bubble like this, which would far more likely indicate that it was original.

I can’t see the pictures very clearly on my phone, but the bubble looks reasonably squarely on. The originally factory sealed cards tend to have a good press around the seal and one of the things that gives away the later sealed cards is a v in the stem, as common assumption is an iron would have been used to seal the cards.

If you want any help with it then there is a Dutch Facebook collectors group that would be worth floating the pictures through. Not only would you likely get an indication of authenticity, you would get a measure of rarity from them. Be careful though, as the Dutch collecting community is small but can be ruthless. They have a lot of good, knowledgeable guys though.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Meccano stickered bike
Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo

Unfortunately, i don't use facebook but i'm happy to provide more pictures to anyone to try to confirm it either way. He certainly doesn't feel like my Snow Trooper with no glue or iron marks on the card he also doesn't have a triangle at the bubble. I only noticed when someone pointed out the placement of the bubble on my Snow Trooper just how high up it is :lol: Rebel Commander looks like my other carded figures. Personally i think he's genuine simply because i bought him well before the Snow Trooper probably at a boot fair or local school fair so he would've already his homemade figures mixed up with other sellers and i'm sure if he'd perfected his technique he wouldn't be so sloppy on later figures but i'm happy if it proves otherwise since i paid next to nothing for him compared to his value today. I'd imagine that the more sought after figures would've received a better job than figures that no-one really wanted.
I will say that this whole scandal must've been a terrible experience for many people once it came to light their must be many collectors whose collections have been made up of these fakes i can imagine their anger at this guy who basically conned people and got away with it. I'm not sure this is the right place to ask but the Tri logo bubbles don't seem to yellow while the others do anyone know why this happens? I'm convinced that my Darth Vader had a lovely clear bubble and was mint when i got him but now 30 years on the bubble is now brown and very brittle.

I've edited this post to add some extra pictures of Rebel Commander one thing i'm struggling with is on the list of known Toy Toni re-cards the Dutch Clipper Rebel Commander is a 72 back card while mine is a 45.

I would say that was a Toni due to the bubble placement. Toni also had the smaller double stem according to Jason website.

If you look at the open card the bubble is in a different place. Also an Internet image shows original bubble location in the bottom left corner.

As others have said though these still hold a good value when for sale.

Best,

I'm not really sure where to put these as not vintage in the strictest sense they are from before the new figures were produced. I also have a six pack but this has red instead of green packaging.

Thanks everyone for your help i think i'll sell the collection i've priced it up based on what people have said and i intend to sell as one lot. I understand i might be able to get more at the higher values quoted as well as selling individual figures or small groups but if i'm going to sell i'd rather it all went rather than having a few figures left.

Once you have a price in mind please start a thread in the “For Sale” section.
Thanks
