Unusual focus, but stunning. Must be the best 21b focus around.

Personal favorite the Meccano Cool

Thanks to DarthStanley for the heads up on this. It's a double pronged bubble Palitoy 45c which I haven't seen before. It came from ToyToni and looks case fresh.

Another really great focus!! I'm a sucker for foreign (to the US) carded figures, so I really enjoyed that part of your run. And I have to say, the POTF carded figure is a very cool way to display a coin. Where did you get the card back? Or did you make it yourself?

And thanks for keeping us updated on your finds. I know I'm absolutely horrible at that, but I really enjoyed your limelight!

Yes, I started first and then Frank posted his collection on rebelscum a few years afterwards I posted mine. He has some great pre production stuff,
a MOC palitoy 45a I'm quite jealous of, a Canadian transition card and some bubble and sticker variants I'm missing. I haven't heard
from him in a few years, I think he had his collection packed away a few years after he limelighted in on rebelscum.

I think he having a hard time to add stuff for the focus and thats why he doesnt do any limelights right now.

Yeah the transition moc he got from kellerman is really cool

Hi guys! Long time, no see Smile

Really nice to see your collection growing Jason, some great additions since last time.
I love the Palitoy shelf, and the Coin Offer is great too - did you get it from Scott?

Collecting has been slow for a couple of years, mostly due to the reasons already stated in this thread. I'm still sharing our mutual love for the Doctor though, so you're not all out of competition yet Wink

Btw, the transition didn't come from Kellerman, but from a canadian collector Smile

Keep it up, see you on eBay! Wink

Hey there, great to hear from you. The Coin Offer came off ebay from known scammer and bad guy Shaun Neincast at Dallas Vintage Toys.
Was a bit worried about that, but they don't come up often and I got it quite cheap. All went well with the auction/deal so I guess he's not all bad.

Still looking for the same rare pieces that you're after, though I think my foreign carded is quite extensive now. Between us, we'd have a kick ass 2-1b display as there's a fair bit of overlap now!

Smile

Ah, is Shaun still around? I had hoped not, but good that your deal went well.

And yes, a split display between the two of us would look great for sure Smile Is it just me though, or does it seem a little bit slow on eBay (regarding 2-1B) nowadays? I hardly ever see anything come up anymore, not even the more common carded pieces.

I forgot, those new german pieces are great too! I have never seen the one without the text on the back, and I have been e-mailing ToyToni about the single stem variation for awhile, but without any luck. Oh well... Smile

Yes ebay is quite slow and hardly anything I need comes up on there, just the coin offer in recent years, though I did miss out on a stickered Kenner
special offer. My other stuff has come from Toy Toni and looking at the Trade sections on the forums. There was also a clipper MOC posted on my facebook
group which I also missed out on due to lack of money. And a prototype figure on rebelscum last year that I couldn't afford. I also get heads up from fellow collectors who have seen my limelights for some of these. Keep at it with Toni, he has a bunch of german/palitoy cards, he may well have stuff you need.

Cool - Maybe the same Clipper that was sold on RS a couple of years ago. Do you have pictures of the Clipper and the Prototype?

No, I'm afraid not. From memory, the clipper looked nice enough, and the prototype figure was transparent. The prototype should be findable
in the rebelscum trade section of the forum if you have the patience to search and trawl through.

How rare is the offerless Palitoy 45-back 2-1B? Didn't think it would be so hard to find, but I have actually never seen a carded piece for sale.

The 41A and 41B are most prevalent on ESB card. The 45A is the rarest of the ESBs, both me and Gary Smith are looking for one of those.
45B offerless is somewhere in between, me and Gary both have one of those. Will keep an eye out for you!

First new addition for a while. This is a Kenner 48 back, with not one, but with two stickers.

My 2-1b focus - Page 2 Pbucket

The first is the free revenge of the jedi sticker. Still looking for a MOC with just this sticker on it.

The second is the black wrap round Clipper sticker.

Hey there, yes, was a nice surprise to see that.

Have you been following Tonigate?

The upshot is that our Palitoy 45c and German ESB 45 back cards are fakes made by Toy Toni.

Sorry, totally missed your answer.

Yeah, the TT thing is great... Not Smile //Borat

Are the trilogos that came from him also fake? And what about the ROTJ 45-backs with double stem bubble?

Trilogos are ok, he didnt fake any of those as far as we're aware.

I have a double stem ROTJ 45 back I got directly from Toni, so they are suspect too.

Happy to look at any pictures you have to give an opinion, seemed to have turned into the expert on judging these.

PM me if you want to do that.

So in the post Toy Toni world 5 of these MOC pieces were down to Toni.

The Palitoy 45C 2-1b with rectangular bubble. I had 2 of these and AFA 85 and and an AFA 90. I have sold on the AFA 90 with full disclosure.
The Palitoy 45C with double stemmed bubble came directly from the man himself.
Then also German ESB 45b with the English text on the back of the card. I have a single stem with missing embossed number on it from his
Toniship and a double stemmed bubble.

Have decided to keep these pieces for now as I have no genuine factory sealed examples of any of them. I think a Palitoy 45C is rare
as I have yet to see a genuine example, I believe it will be a double stemmed bubble or rectangular bubble with gaps at the bottom
as the used cardback I have has a bubble imprint which matches this.

Anyway, onto the new MOC:-

My 2-1b focus - Page 2 Pbucket

This is a genuine factory sealed Palitoy 45CN, this was made and carded in Hong Kong, where Toni couldnt
get his grubby mitts on it. It is the card that was already featured on my Palitoy guide at:-

http://www.freewebs.com/mrpalitoy/rotj45ccardback.htm

I have updated the photo on my guide and added that the bubble has 03A embossed in the bottom right hand corner:-

My 2-1b focus - Page 2 Pbucket

Other differences from the regular Palitoy 45C are the punch which is perforrated and the HN letters after (ROJ1) on the back of
the card. I am also delighted that this card has a price sticker on it that shows it was shop sold and that it has been
nowhere near AFA.

All in, I'm well chuffed. It's been sitting on ebay for months, I guess only I knew it was genuine. It was only with my recent
ebay sales that I could justify buying it.
