Hi Lars,

No, you have the earlier 30A cardback with the smaller Palitoy logo on the front of the card, whereas mine is the later 30B cardback with the larger logo.

For anyone that doesn't know, other differences between the Palitoy 30A and 30B cards include a small 'TM' at the bottom right-hand corner of the 'k' in 'The Empire Strikes Back' on the card front of the 30A, which is missing from the 30B. Also, the 'Ages 4 and over' text at the top right of the card front differs between the two cards, and on the back of the cards, the 30A is missing the 'Made in Hong Kong' text at the bottom right.

For anyone interested in learning more about Palitoy cards, I recommend Mr Palitoy's excellent website http://www.freewebs.com/mrpalitoy/.

Lastly, here is the back of my FX-7 card to compare with yours:

Strange card back picture on this one do you not think?
Never saw FX7 floating in space! :lol:

Lovely TL, with a great bubble.
Again a strange piece of card art, I wonder why they felt the need to flip the picture?


Sorry, I meant to comment on this last week! Yes, I completely agree, that floating in space picture is a truly bizarre choice by Kenner! Perhaps they thought it made the droid look more dramatic and appealing to kids if it had a 'space-y' background! Maybe it was partly due to the full figure never being seen clearly on screen in TESB (not that that stopped them with some other card image choices - Cloud Car Pilot and AT-ST Driver, anyone? :lol: ). Either way, it makes for a really strange and unique image... but as for flipping the picture for the T-L... Who on earth knows?!!! :lol:
