Re: Palitoy20 back question.

Nice spot! Have updated the 20 back page and given you a credit on the main page. Have looked on Vectis, all the other 20 back figures use a single bubble type. Greedo use the square stem bubble seen as the second bubble type on Walrus Man. https://www.freewebs.com/mrpalitoy/sw20cardback.htm :) che...

A friend of mine is a policeman and he says current resourcing means that the way crimes are prioritised fraud in toy collecting is never going to be top of the list. Most burgalries dont even get solved so what chance do w...

Re: So are all collectors the same?

Not at all. Money shouldnt be a barrier to enjoying vintage star wars collecting. Lots of people doing reseal runs now (Mark Daniels has lovely set of the first 12) and there are many more cardback collectors now than there used to be. I stopped my own Palioty MOC run after the first 12/second 8, an...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 51 LAUNCHED

Zoom on an iPhone camera is good enough. First up is a vintage palitoy racetrack, note the dots:- 601926EF-E03C-4A59-8559-20F6B28319B4.jpeg Next up is a modern palitoy fake card, note that rectangular pixels:- 2C1C8315-3416-4CB9-982B-451E32435F3A.jpeg Next up is a Kenner custom blue Snaggie card, re...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 51 LAUNCHED

Got as far as the spotting repro cards bit now. I'll do some magnifying glass racetrack close ups to show what I mean about dots (vintage) vs rectangular pixels (recards). It holds true on the older recards I have. It was Joiner who told me that originally a few years ago. Hope the newer recards are...
