Here are my collection of Imperial gunners. Only a little bit have changed since the last time we did toy of the week, I got 2 more cardbacks from danish childhood lots and then I have also checked my black blasters and learned that I only have 2 imperial gunner blasters after I have checked the variants of my blasters :ROFLMAO: I had hoped I could add some more black blasters from my a-wing pilots but funny they were all added with the correct blasters :oops: So now I only need 14 black imperial Gunner blasters :ROFLMAO: I am sure that I will never get them all and there are for sure much better things I would love to add to my collection than use my money on more expensive black blasters.

Here are my Tri-logo Imperial Gunner moc.

Tri-logo cardback with danish price sticker on it from the danish toy stores BR. The Price Sticker are called on english Star Offer, that is why the sticker looks like a star. This price sticker was only used in all BR toy stores in the christmas of 1985.

Excellent stuff Lars!... And I agree, there are better things to spend your money on than buying 14 black blasters! :ROFLMAO:

Thanks for the kind words. Yes there are for sure better things to spend money on. I was also not planning to get so many of them in the beginning. But 15 out of 16 comes from lots that I have bought and I thought why not keep them and army build on them when I find them in lots. But as you can see most of the time the blaster was missing in the lots.

About the tri-logo cardbacks. All 3 tri-logo look the same to me. Do you know about if there are any tri-logo imperial gunner cardback variants ? or are there only this one ? I have read something about that there could be some with diffrent bubbles. But are there any with diffrent punch holes or harder or less harder coardboard ? or do you only know about the variant I have ? :unsure:

Kenner made the figure cooler than the on-screen character by adding a red visor. They also ditched the big imperial emblem from the front of the helmet. It's a nice looking figure but maybe not accurate enough for me.

Sorry, I'm not aware of any T-L cardback variants. That doesn't mean there aren't any, just that I am not aware of them. Cardback variants are not really my area of expertise (if I even have one! :ROFLMAO:).

nice figure it looks mint. Have you checked it for the correct black blaster ?

That potf moc looks awesome with the coin and the figure on it. What blaster are it packed with on the moc ? the smile or the kader blaster ?
Hi Lars,

Apologies for the delayed reply.

My loose one has the correct Kader blaster, as does my POTF carded example:

Thanks for the post and all the great pictures (y) On the new pictures of your imperial gunner it looks very mint, it looks like it has just been removed from a moc and put on display :cool:

There are multiple coos to collect if you're that way inclined. Check out the recent POTF update on Variant Villain.

Great to see you posting in the thread, thanks (y) I have them all 4, I found them years ago. Great to see that there are added potf coo variants. I remember years ago, some people though I was crazy when I was talking about coo variants for potf figures :ROFLMAO: maybe there are a 5th out there :unsure:

If you have any imperial gunners in your collection, then you are welcome to share them with us in the thread ;)
