"Spot the deliberate mistake on this back"- the Falcon is the Empire's largest ship!!

My 5 dc cardbacks all originate from Singapore. I have been told quite a lot of 'Australian' stuff was sent there ( which would explain why I have 2nd wave of figures offerless 20 backs & offerless ESB 4LOM cardbacks)
Of the 5 dc cardbacks 2 are Canadian ESB '3 line' a Canadian SW like Jess' a Toltoys SW & the 'transition' card.
Now Toltoys & Canada Kenner had some affiliation with each other evident from the plastic Canadian Landspeeders where some are Toltoys marked.

" The very first kenner dc ESB back is the equivalent of jesse's one above. The Kenner one has photos of the production toys"
what do you mean?

It says the same on the Y-Wing box too Laughing

That explains it and I'd bet the blue backed card is the last in the ESB run

On Jesse's card the Falcon, Y-Wing and Cruiser are prototypes on my ESB X-Wing they are production images (though to be fair it is a later cardback)

Very interesting- a SW front with a latter ESB back ( my transition one ) & the early ESB cards have a back originally from a SW card. ( which makes more sense )

thanks for plug James and the praise Jessie - I'd forgotten about this thread, can't believe it was 5 years ago that we discussed this. The Canadian stuff is still the area I'm most unsure of but no-one has chimed in to say the matrix is wrong Smile

Nice work! Regarding the mailers I didn't know the inner packaging was paper. My MIB Kenner X-Wing mailer came with tissue paper but I assumed the previous owner packed it like that.

Congrats on a great site!

That's a great resource, especially the categorization system for the cardback variations.
