Hi guys
 
Its been a while since I posted a limelight. Missed me? LOL J
 
Here are some items that I managed to get my hands on in the past few months.
 
Towards the 12 back run
 
Took a while for me to get hold of these items. Big thanks goes out to Allen for letting me “inherit” them.
 
C-3PO with SKU footer

I will update my 12 back collection limelight with these in due course.
 
MISB Mail Away Collectors Action Stands
 
Took me a few years to eventually locate one of these MISB examples. Then ended up with 2 within the span of weeks – what were the odds of that happening J
 
MISB 1

Big thanks goes out to John (DarthBerizing) for helping me out with the second of these 2 pieces as the seller was only prepared to send out the item to a US address. Much appreciated John!!
 
Sears Line Art Collectors 15 Pack (ungraded)
 
Won the main pieces of these in the auction on eBay and managed to find the missing pieces (Snaggletooth and Death Squad Commander recently – big thanks to the RS members who helped me out on this) together with the correct ESB Catalog (thanks Todd J ) to complete the whole set. This would go well with the AFA 85 piece that I had limelighted previously.

Mark, these are really awesome pieces. The lineart mailers are spectacular and prior to another one you put up, I had never seen them before. Now I really want one.

Unbelievable! Awesome additions.

Don't want to sound like an idiot, but I don't collect MOC's and certain terms still baffle me, can anyone explain what SKU means for the card footer. I'm familiar with the card footers but was never quite quite sure what 'SKU' meant.

Stock Keeping Unit... basically it is the manufacturer's part or catalog number.
In the case of SKUs on the footer, the SKU # is printed on the footer. As for rarity, not sure. Probably rare if Mark has a run of them! Smile

Thanks guys for the great comments. Glad you guys like the new additions. cheers

Kahn - just to shed some light of this intriguing variation to the 12A backs .. as far as my knowledge and understanding goes ....

Yes, the SKU footers are those with the numbers written on them. 

12A backs have 3 variants - white footer, SKU footer and normal footer. 

White footers were thought to be salesman samples but they could well be the earliest production run of 12A backs. They are hard to find. Usually associated with initial wave of the first 12 characters (Luke, Leia, Chewie and R2). Harder to find for second wave of characters (Stormtrooper, Ben, Vader, C3PO and Han). White footers for Ben and Vader are known to have been found on the DT MOC versions - reference is made to the recent Brian Toy's auction for a white footer DT Vader MOC. White footers for C3PO and Han may possibly exist but I have not seen any examples so far. I do not think that white footers were available for the third wave of the 12 characters (DSC, Jawa and Sandpeople).

SKU footers probably came after the white footers. They are also extremely hard to find. SKU footers are known to exist for the first and second wave of the 12 characters - except for Han. MOC DT Bens and DT Vaders have the SKU footers. It is a hallmark of a genuine MOC DT Ben or Vader. I believe that MOC DT Ben or Vader would either have a white footer or an SKU footer. DT Lukes MOC are the exception. A SKU footer Han may possibly exist but I have not seen an example. SKU footers were probably not available for the third wave of the 12 characters. 

Cheers, Mark
