My vlix entry will include poon copy. There are other copies out there but poons are the most common.

It's actually very enjoyable. The card back and production matrix should be completed?!? early next week.

I'd love to add a few new figure entries but I need some 'quiet' time for that when my son isn't running around like a mad man!!! Wink

Did you get that fett with the smoke damage? I saw it was put up lat week by Jordan. I was going to give it a run but it still went out of my current budget range.

Also has there been any confirmed carded fetts with Hong Kong on them? I saw the toy fair sample, but wondered if there have been any production ones found.

Yes it's the same item, but it serves as a place holder until I replace it with photos of my droids moc. However the photos I have are on my PC at work Sad

Well that's the whole idea. First photos of the card backs then a production matrix so we can see where these figure were produced. Believe it or not this small product range spans 5 different countries!!!

Did anybody know this......?
 

Tig Fromm MOC: Kenner (USA/Europe)
 

Tig Fromm MOC: Kenner (USA/Europe) "Made In Mexico"
 

Ewoks Wicket MOC: Kenner (USA/Europe) "Made In Mexico"
 
NOTE:

Not all the Droids product line was manufactured in the Far East. Instead Kenner opted to utilise there Mexican Factory to produce the Tig Fromm & Sise Fromm figures. It is also worth noting that several of the Ewoks figures where produced in the same factory, along with several vehicles including the Tatooine Skiff.

Interestingly, Mark_Yeo's Glasslite Kez-Iban has a slightly different paint "error/trait" on his left leg!
