Cantina_Patron's Stormtrooper Cardback Focus

Post by cantina_patron on Fri Mar 13, 2015 7:21 pm

I decided to collect Stormtrooper cardbacks as it is one of the few characters to be found on nearly all types of cardback. Besides, who doesn't like Stormtroopers? (OK, the Rebel Alliance   nanny  )
As much as I would like to have focused on a moc collection, cardbacks have the advantage of being far cheaper and they take up a fraction of the space.  Wink

I've got a long way to go, but I'm enjoying the chase, and it gives me an added interest.

Hopefully, as it grows this limelight will act as a useful reference for other cardback / moc collectors.

41B
Factory code: K ('Kader' Hong Kong). The '(with figures)' text under the Star Destroyer Playset has been crossed out with biro. This is quite common as I gather the text was not intended as I have never seen a Palitoy Star Destroyer with figures included.

The 'offer ends January 31st 1984' text has been inked out with a marker. This is commonly seen on Palitoy 65 C&D cards.

This example is unpunched with perforation lines (Indicating that it is from a different factory to the cleanly punched example below).

70B Meccano
With this issue the Meccano factory used the same cardstock as Palitoy, but packed the figure behind a ROTJ style bubble which is smaller than a Tri-logo bubble and has round, not square corners as evidenced by the damage to the card caused by the bubble being removed. Meccano also released this figure with the 'UFO' style punch hole more typically associated with Meccano Tri-logo cards.

I've made a small update with the following additions:
Palitoy 41B
Kenner 20B, 21G & 65B. I'm particularly pleased with the ESB 21G as I gather it is quite a rare cardback.

Wow Steve this is a really impressive run of cards jaw
your collection has really come on a long way clapping clapping

In fact it was your stormie cardback collection that inspired me to start collecting Vader cardbacks........ well, that and the fact that I will never be able to afford most Vader MOC's lol!
I will have to start a Vader cardback limelight at some point.

a fantastic collection Steve, congratulations mate clapping clapping clapping

You still need a US Kenner TESB 41B Stormtrooper cardback for your collection.

FYI the factory code is "K" stormie

I certainly do Peter (as well as many others). My Palitoy 41B has the factory code K & with the obvious modifications, I assume that the Palitoy version was adapted from the Kenner card?

BTW, if you ever have any leads on a nice example, feel free to let me know. Wink

Steve, you've raised a good point, which will be answered in the Palitoy TESB 41 Back Counterpart from the U.K. section of my write up. stormie

There is a common factor here - Kader Industrial Company Ltd. made the Stormtrooper figure for both Kenner and Palitoy. king

I will PM you as soon as I can when I see the first U.S. Kenner TESB 41B Stormtrooper cardback that shows up for Sale online. Smile

I can't belief that I missed this thread. Shocked

Fantastic cardback collection, Steve! Very Happy
A lot of love and dedication goes into it.

I see a lot of Spanish stuff and will watch out for a PBP cardback for you.
