PostSubject: My 2-1b focus   My 2-1b focus I_icon_minitimeFri Apr 20, 2012 11:00 am

Been working on a 2-1b focus since October 2006. Hope you like it!

First up is a complete run of 12 Kenner MOC, starting with a 5esb-41a.
This one has the yellow Star Wars figure survival kit offer on the front and back.
This was missing off the Kenner matrix until a few updates ago despite being quite common!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a 3esb-41b. This one has no special offers on it.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a 3esb-41d. This one has no special offers on it and has a slightly different back to the 3esb-41b.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 6esb-45a. This one has the blue Star Wars display arena offer on the front of the card.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 7esb-47a. This one has the red 4-LOM offer on the front of the card.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 3esb-48a. This one has no special offers on it.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 9esb-48c. This one has the yellow Revenge Of The Jedi offer on the front of the card.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 1rotj-48d. This one has the yellow Nien Nunb offer on the front of the card.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 2rotj-65b. This one has no special offers on it.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is 4rotj-65d. This is the same as the 2rotj-65b with the addition of Anankin Skywalker stickers
on the front and back of the card. It's quite rare and I only just got one to complete the Kenner run!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a 2rotj-65b with Free Coin Offer sticker. This doesn't get it's own variation. Maybe it should!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Penultimate of the Kenner MOC run is 2rotj-77a. This one has no special offers on it.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Lastly, this is a previously unseen kenner 2-1b 2ROTJ-79A!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a run of Palitoy MOC. I'm missing a MOC 45A to complete this run!
First up is the 30b.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is the 41a.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is the 41b. It's very rare to find a figure that can be found as 41 and 41b.
Luke Skywalker X-Wing is the only other known example.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

I found a cardback with bubble attached of the blue circle 45a. It's a pretty good reseal but not as good as the real thing!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is the 45b.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is the 45c.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Lastly is the 70c or Tri Logo.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

This is an AFA 90 graded example of the 45c from my AFA 90 Palitoy ROTJ focus.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next up are other foreign MOCs. First up is a Kenner Canada 41 back.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is an offerless Kenner Canada 41 back cardback. These are rarer than the one with the offer and I am still looking for a MOC for this one!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a German Genral Mills. Note the double pronged bubble.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a Tri Logo.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

This one has a clipper sticker on the back of it.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

This a 2-1b square card meccano cardback resealed with a square card bubble. I think it turned out quite well!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next is a Meccano 45 back. This one is a reseal. The card still had the bubble base attached so
I sellotaped a Tri logo bubble to it.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

The last foreign card is a Clipper reseal. This has only been seen as cardback. I had to repair the card a bit
on this one and am not sure if I have the correct bubble attached.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Lastly are some other random bits and pieces I have. First up is the Kenner Revenge of the Jedi proof card.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next up is the POTF coin. I have this displayed on a mock up POTF card as it never appeared on it's own card.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Next up is an AFA 90 graded loose HK flat finish 2-1b. Still looking for an AFA 90 metallic finish one.
These are the only 2 known variants for this figure.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

Last up is a Kenner baggy.

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

I hope you liked my focus.

Jason

That's a solid run Jason. I always like this cool droid, good to see him in his many versions. I like how his mask has popped off on some of the moc in transit, gives him that weird expression he has whenever he has the mask off. Yep that Meccano is a beauty! Thanks for sharing this great focus fun!

Nice stuff!! Question on the German MOC. I've got a German as well with standard bubble. Who's the variant? I remember someone mentioning two types of German MOCs (with writing on the back and without). Is that something to do with it?

The German cardback first came out with the words "STAR WARS ACTION FIGURES, Collect all 45!" on the back of the card above the picture of the f45 figures. It was then removed in the next version of the cardback. I'm not sure if there is a tie in between the bubble type and the cardback type. Which cardback type do you have? I need to check mine to find out which type it is too. What does mean, is that there's another MOC out there for me to collect! :-)

Mine also has STAR WARS ACTION FIGURES, Collect all 45! on the back so it is the same cardback as yours but with a different bubble. Means there may be 2 other dfferent German MOC's for me to find!

Was looking for a character focus that hadn't been done by anyone before on rebelscum, and 2-1b was was one of a few possibles that wasn't on the character focus thread at the time. Not a character that would have too much to collect and a lot of pieces that would be very hard and expensive to get. And not a character that had too little carded variations to get either. Somewhere nice in the middle. I was then a collectors fair where the German double stemmed 2-1b and another kenner one were available so I started the focus there and then.

So, I have 2 new German items for my 2-1b focus. First up is a General Mills single stemmed 45 back. The General Mills 45 back I already have is double stemmed. Both of these cards have "STAR WARS ACTION FIGURES, Collect all 45!" on the back of the card which is how this card was originally released. I also have a cardback of the second release of this card which has those words removed.

Nice run of 2-1B's.

I have a ROTJ with Coin Offer. I am not sure if you and I were in a bidding war for it on eBay or not. If I ever break up my run, I will make sure to contact you.

Two new additions. First up is a Kenner 65 back with Free Coin offer. Been waiting a while for one of these to come up!

My 2-1b focus Pbucket

And next is a Canadian 41 back offerless cardback. These are rarer than the one with the offer on them and I am still looking for a MOC for this one!
