That’s a great pair...🙄😔
I think thar the POTF Stormtrooper cardback is one of the best in that line.
Nice Top Toys, don’t see many of those these days.

I've not posted here in what feels like an eternity, although I have been lurking ;)

Doubt I'll ever get a better example of a 30 back Fett than this cardback - and even this cost me an arm and a leg! :D But it's a corker!

I'm now only needing ONE card/re-seal away from completing a full SW and ESB debut run - a 45a Threepio with removable limbs, and I'll settle for a really nice cardback for that one too.

That's an amazing card back Mark, fantastic looking! I did have a sealed cut card Boba Fett that would have resealed a tweet onto that card but unfortunately it's long gone. Maybe finding something similar and using a Top Loader might get you even closer to the complete thing.

Really made up for you though and hopefully you will get that one missing piece soon. Such a great run :D

I doubt you could find a better cardback anywhere so it cost you an arm and a leg for a reason and I am sure long term you will get far more enjoyment owning it than keeping the money in the bank!

Congratulations and Good Luck in your search for a 45A removable limbs, the toughest 45A debut figure by a long stretch!

Hey there Mark,

As I said on FB it’s the best card back example I have ever seen of the 30 Fett and having the actual figure and even the unpunch that went with it too...well that makes it that little bit more special 8)

Wish I’d had a bid myself now :lol:

That's probably a very well spent £2!

Nice one and I have one of these also that was used for my resealed polity 30 back I have (I'm not sure if the figure is original to the card back but I'm leaning to the fact that it was....based on nothing :lol: )
