Thanks Iain/Christian for the kind words earlier.

The label making functionality was released in December as part of Star Wars Tracker and is a very cool way to take your display to the next level. I worked with Iain to ensure the label sizes are such that they will fit GW Acrylic cases and stands perfectly. You print these at home yourself onto the sticker paper of your choice. I've already started doing this for my collection now. There is detailed information here for those who want to read more:

Jared! Prompt tech support to combat my ignorance and cool labels?!

For reference, they seem to fit perfectly well in my AFA Ungraded cases. (style A, which is the most shallow they offer.)

Looking forward to the Phone version.

The labels look fantastic. What is the bar coding for? Is there an option for round labels, to fit the round stands?

When the phone app comes out your are supposed to be able to look up the item registered in SW tracker. Not sure how much sale history will be visible though.

Thanks, if I can say, I think the labels have turned out really well too! The barcode can be scanned by the "soon-to-be-released" iPhone app and it will pull up the corresponding portfolio record you have stored in Star Wars Tracker.

So main use case being, that you can remind yourself of any details you recorded against the item while you hold it in your hand. The other thing it will be able to do is an automatic market value price search right there on the spot! All from scanning a barcode Smile

As for round label stands, I haven't attempted a label for them. I'm not sure there is enough "real estate" to make any printing legible. Instead, I opted to target the very slick rectangle stands that Iain Sanderson sells:

Fantastic results on the labels Chris! See above reply about how to use the barcode. They actually have a purpose and not just there to fill up space Smile

That sounds very cool. clapping

I could see it working on the 2" round stands, but like you said, there probably is not enough room on the 1 1/2" & 1" round stands.

I'll have a chat to Iain about it. I've got a bit going on at the moment, but I can probably circle back to it at some stage soon.

I was only asking because I bought all 1 1/2" & 1" stands from Iain a few months ago & was about to order some more because I really liked them. Keep us updated with any progress. Very Happy

I now find myself with a Boba Fett Moc that has no confirmed sales on tracker lol it's a Palitoy 65. I presume that means no confirmed eBay sales since tracker has been online.

Hi Chris,

Does look like there's been nothing in the last 6 months or so. However, if you widen the search back to include 2014 some do come up. Not sure why that is - perhaps people are hesitant with those cardbacks due to ToyToni scandal? People just hanging onto them in their collections at the moment?

Quick tip: you can get a more focused search if you also specify the licensee (Palitoy) and cardback variations your are interested in.

Oh Jeebis, I was thinking that the other day. (The toy tony scandal and the possibility that my new fet moc was too good to be true.

I've heard that there are iron marks on the toy tony cards and that there is a bit of a curve caused by the press used to seal authentic cards. Given those two factors mine seems to be ok, there is also a bit of an imperfect warp on the card, and it's punched with some skuzz on the movie logo. I've never heard of Toy tony cards being deliberately warped or dirty.

All that made me feel it's pretty safe but I should probably have someone more qualified look at it.

It's not total coverage, but a good deal of it. Let me know the link to the ones you are referencing and I'll see what the story is. Private message or post here as you see fit.

Thanks for the search tip Jared. I may have misinterpreted your mention of the Toy Toni scam and re-researched it. It seems only 45 back Fetts have been confirmed and most seem to have this "double stemmed" bubble. I assume you meant that people might be scared of buying it simply because its a Palitoy ROTJ Fett in general.

Either way I've got some detailed photos up now and if anything isn't right I'm sure I'll hear about it. Looking forward to adding it and a trilogo anakin to tracker. I didn't even know about those email updates with the value, loved that Smile

Yes, that's more what I was driving at. People won't want to pay a lot for items they aren't sure about, and people won't want to downgrade the price if they have already paid heaps for it -- so the market deadlocks and nothing takes place.

It could also be that these are exchanging hands after "best offer accepted" which is never recorded in the Tracker. And for the most part, it's auction prices that are harvested in preference to "buy-it-now" listings. So if these are been sold for asking price then they may be missed. That said, Palitoy 65 back Fetts just don't come up often at auction which is something in itself whichever way you look at it.

Cool, glad you are getting them. This weeks update will be a little delayed as I want to get last weeks recent Vectis auction results in there first.

Cheers, Jared.

Jared, I signed up and started to enter my MOC collection... but can't find a place for the Tri-Logo option? Maybe I'm missing the drop down? THX!

Hi, they are in there -- you just need to pull them up as Palitoy 70 backs

Thanks for the help! One last question... you have the Droids line in the list of figures, anything about the Ewoks line? Thanks again...

Hi,

No plans in the short term to on-board the Ewoks line. It's on the list, but plenty of other stuff I'd like to do before that became the priority.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add them! Smile Not sure how difficult it is, but I do know they are selling on eBay and that there are many photos of the front/back of these figures. I have all but two (2) in that line, would love to have them documented with the software.

Another question (sorry), I started generating labels... love how they look... but what sticker paper do you recommend for the size of the label? Thanks again Jared!

Haha, maybe Ewoks just went up a notch or two on the list Smile

For the paper, I tried a few different products but these worked out really well for me:

I organize a bunch of labels in one go to arrange as many as I could on a single sheet of A4 (this is very economical, you can get MANY stickers on a single sheet). I then cut them off the A4 sheet exactly with scissors as needed. If you haven't had a read through this page yet, I recommend it:

Keep the questions coming, I love hearing how people are using Star Wars Tracker. And most important --- share you pictures back here when you are finished, I'd love to see how they turn out!
