Jeremy, this is great. This is more along the lines of what I would of expected. I’ll pm you for more info in the next few days.

Just wondered if you think my Han one from the sealed Large Head Han cut card is a V5? You see to have an expert eye for these things so it would be good to know.

Ian
I would say it is the M4c mould off of Variant Villain. I have highlighted some of the identifying mould traits. The M4a and M4c are in my opinion the v4 mould off of TIG.

This is great to see and I agree that the loose blaster does look like V4 (M4a/M4c) but do you not think that the sealed cut card one might also be this issue of blaster?

Yes I believe you’re right. We haven’t seen a Kenner 12 back small head Han with a M4 rebel blaster but Palitoy 12 backs were released later than US 12 backs.

I don’t know much about Palitoy 12 backs but guessing the large head Han is much rarer on 12 backs than small head Han just like Kenner.

Guess it’s also possible it could of been carded later in the line using excess 12 back cards.

The Large Head Han was certainly released late in the line so it's possible that it was carded using excess card backs and might be why it possibly has this V4 blaster. It would be good to see what the sealed Palitoy 12 back pin heads came packed with if there are any others to compare with Jeremy's.

Last one! Sorry for spamming but had a free afternoon. I’ve missed out any doubles I had as kid as I just can’t be sure which figures came with which card backs. I’m pretty sure I was given 2 Woolworths 99p 8 packs as a kid and still have the figures which I can be 99% sure came in them.

Anyway last but not least Han Carbonite all parts 100% a match.
