Hi Jason, do you agree that the Palitoy vc jawa deserves a place on the list now that it has been graded by AFA ?And it looks likeToltoys New Zealand Had it's own version of the Kenner 12 back on a slightly smaller card.

I reckon so.

Here's the full write up from my website:-



There have been quite a few examples of opened and sealed vinyl caped jawas on the 12B cardback showing up in the last few years. There have been four opened examples with the correct smaller sized bubble which were used with vinyl caped jawa in the Kenner product line. And there are two known examples of ones which are sealed. Neither of these were graded by AFA or UKG and until one was graded, there were two camps who firmly believed or didn't believe that vinyl caped jawas were ever sold on Palitoy cards. As of March 14 2013 the debate ended as AFA have graded one of them as an AFA 75 example shown here. It's serial number is 14166282 and can be verified on their website. One of the open examples has a Zodiac toys price sticker which would indicate that it was shop sold. There is a clear plastic insert behind the figure and a yellow cardboard footer under the figure. The footer is present on all subsequent variations of the card. The left of the punch which is used to hang up the card is level with the left side of the 'S' in Star Wars on this card.



The vinyl cape on the Jawa was replaced with a darker brown cloth cape making the vinyl cape very rare. Initially, the bubble that was used for R2-D2 was used for the cloth cape jawa as it did not fit inside the vinyl cape bubble as it was too small. This bubble is quite deep so a folded yellow cardboard insert was placed behind the figure moving it towards the front of the bubble, the top of which can be seen at shoulder height behind the figure. The hood on the figure looks squashed as the bubble is not high enough. This temporary solution was used until a bigger bubble that could accomodate the hood was made. This new bubble had no kind insert behind the figure. With the new bubble and cloth cape figure the card did not hang correctly now, so the punch was moved to the left a bit so it would hang correctly again. The punch position is about 50/50 on carded palitoy jawas showing that it was a while before they made this change. Fakes are common and many collectors rue the day they swapped their inferior plastic caped Jawa for a cloth one in the school playground when they were kids. All subsequent cardback variations have the cloth cape jawa on them.



The bubble for the vinyl cape is smaller and flatter than the one used for the cloth cape which is not flat and slopes upwards towards the top of the bubble. This is the only figure that has a bubble that slopes in this manner. The 3 types of bubble used on Palitoy cards also match those used on Kenner cards which makes perfect sense.

Smile

cheers Jason

Yes, I think the Palitoy VC Jawa and New Zealand 12 Back version deserves to be on the list. Now, I have to take the time and update my own list as well. Not sure how I missed the NZ version on RS.. Jason's write-up is perfect. Personally, I have always felt the VC Jawa had been produced on a Palitoy card. Hell, if a VC Jawa can be found on a ESB card, anything is possible.

The cardback list is outdated and I need to get off my ass and clean it up..

The New Zealand 21 back is a smaller card the 32 back is a bigger card.

"Kenner: (New Zealand)
SW 12 Back (Card is smaller than the standard release)"
IMO this info is incorrect & a NZ Jawa is unconfirmed

Hi James, starwarsrarities posted this picture in his limelight

Toltoys 12 & 20 backs, mixture of MOC & part attached bubbles


and a close up and some info on the card on RS in the toltoys NZ threadhttp://forum.rebelscum.com/t1089158-4/#post19011518

he doesn't say how many figures are on the backside, but he seems pretty sure it's a smaller NZ kenner card and that bubble is something i haven't seen before on any kenner star wars card.
Does this confirm a NZ jawa scratch or am i just a bit blinded by wishfull thinking Very Happy ?

Because there is some confusion ( as you said the back is not shown ) the 12 backs are not smaller cards. It could be a smaller card 21 back & I think it's best the list says 21 back NZ version unconfirmed ( not 12 back ) Smile
