Cheers, I haven't really bought many this year, prices seem to be on the rise, for my palitoy x wing card I got in a bidding war on ebay and paid around £20.00, for a damaged card that seemed a lot to me and put me off buying for a bit

Nice collection! I personally really like battered cardbacks, I find it and price tags give them a certain charm Smile

Overdue bump
(I think this thread got a bit burried. lol!)

Here's my latest addition. French Meccano with the 'UFO' punch hole and a 'Fabrique a Macao' sticker applied over the printed 'Made In Hong Kong' coo. It also had the smaller ROTJ style bubble as opposed to the larger Tri-Logo bubble seen on other European issues.

Very nice Mecanno, Steve rockon

I found this Kenner (USA) Uncle Gundy card at a pawnshop a couple weeks back. Anyone ever notice that there is plainly a Yuzzum on this card art? Lol doesn't look much like the special edition one but it looks a lot like the early designs for the yuzzums in the preproduction art for ROTJ.

Steve, that's a fantastic Meccano Stormy cardback. It looks to be in great shape. Well done. I love the UFO shaped punch.

Chris, that's a really nice Uncle Gundy cardback. I don't have any droids or ewok cardbacks, so I didn't notice the Yuzzum on the card art. I'll try and find my "art of rotj" book, and see if I can spot the early design you're talking about.
