I thought why not choose Romba today, since we lost the actor Debbie Lee Carrington that played Romba in Return of The Jedi 7 days ago. Debbie Lee Carrington RIP. I never had Romba when I was a child but I took revenge later and now I have a little Romba army :D But first I have to find them so I will add some pictures later, sorry about that.

I prefer POTF cards over Tri-Logos anyway, but especially in this case as Romba's POTF card actually shows a picture of Romba, unlike the Tri-Logo card which for some strange reason shows Paploo instead ;-)

I know, it's one of those really weird ones! It's something you think you should spot immediately, but loads of people don't ;-)

And to round out Kenner's incompetence, the Tri-Logo Paploo card shows Romba!

Nice collection! My own POTF Romba used to look just like these (I'm guessing this is an old photo?) with a perfectly crystal clear bubble. I even have a photograph of it before it went into storage, out of sunlight in a dry, cool environment. Years later when I removed it to display it, BANG! Badly browned / yellowed blister, just like almost every other POTF card ;-). I don't know what kind of cheap and nasty plastic Kenner were using for those things, but the best I can say about it is that they were pretty consistent with its usage across the POTF range! :lol:

That’s a great spot the Romba/Paploo spot!

Here’s my MOC. :)

That pic was taken late 2016. I was lucky enough to pick up a almost full case of them, all with clear bubbles
