Another great example Grant, do you have a complete GIG Red card run yet?
No mate- im not sure if some exist. Still looking for Leia, C-3PO, Luke X-Wing, Dash Render, Luke (SOTE).

I'm not sure if Lando, Han Hoth, Leia Boussh exist. Have you seen these?
Grant, see page 54 onwards for available figures on Red GIG cards.

I have a Leis, Lando, Han and C3PO, so those exist, I think that I have seen a Leia Boussh on a Green card.
Dash and Luke are definitely available on Red cards.
Just can’t find a Luke X Wing or a Fett.
I even considered buying that eBay lot above and then selling on the rest once I had taken the two that I need out.

That stand up bubble Vader is really interesting I will be looking out for him. It's a shame they didn't produce all of the cards this way then they would have displayed better on release.

Been reading today and I believe that a lot did get that bubble but in real small numbers. Might be wrong as I’ve over digested POTF2 information this weekend

Haha yeah we all no it's easy to do. A lot of people hate these red card potf2 figures for various reasons but I think the collectors who appreciate them are the collectors who where there at the time collecting vintage but when these came along it was special for us at the time becouse they where fresh and new on the shelves first of the now called modern. I love my thx run great memories of new star wars for over a decade.

I have picked up and looked at hundreds of these mocs and never noticed this bubble before mini99 sent the link to the reference manual.

Another European/GIG card. Wonder if this is a Toys r’ Us Import?

Ep1 Bonus Pit Droid run is complete.
The card is not the best I know, but all the Darth Sidious MOCs that I have ever seen have very yellow bubbles, and this one is clear.
So went for a good bubble over a good card, and this one has my favourite red droid. :D

Absolutely could not walk past SW figures on the shelf (asda)
Was lovely finding figures "in the wild" with my daughter :D

I love that - and i love they are now free of their bubble incarceration as well :)

Other than Forbidden Planet, i can't remember the last time i found a figure in the wild, those Retro's are a great find.
