I decided to collect Stormtrooper cardbacks as it is one of the few characters to be found on nearly all types of cardback. Besides, who doesn't like Stormtroopers? (OK, the Rebel Alliance  tongue )
As much as I would like to have focused on a moc collection, cardbacks have the advantage of being far cheaper and they take up a fraction of the space.

I've got a long way to go, but I'm enjoying the chase, and it gives me an added interest.  Wink

Great run and some cool examples like the Pali logos, Takara sticker, TopToys and the Canadian multipack :clap:

Great run of Stormi cardbacks, Steve! Very Happy

Hunting the rest will be fun to do.

Thanks for sharing.

Great choice of character, so many card backs to keep chasing. Will you be going for even the slightest differences? ie factory codes, made in China etc.

Cheers AJ. At the moment I'm concentrating on the major variants, but I may go for coo & factory code variants later on. I've noticed with some my Palitoy duplicates, that they came with different sizes / types of bubble.

Thanks Andy. Very Happy

It was about 2 years ago that I initially set out to get an example of a SW, ESB & ROTJ Stormie card, most of the others were acquired over the last 12 months.

wow that's a great run of Stormie cardbacks Steve, congratulations mate :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'd like to do this with Vader at some point, problem is some of em get very pricey, like a GDE/Meccano, or Harbert etc...
I have made a very small start with a Top Toys Vader card though Smile

All the best of luck in finding the remaining cards mate cheers

Thanks Chris.

With regards to building a Vader cardback focus, I'd say go for it. Although some cardbacks can be expensive, with patience & a bit of effort there are still some bargains to be had. Wink
We'll just have to avoid chasing proof cards.

Good idea for a side focus, and agree with the above comments the condition of most is A+

What an awesome start to a focus! And it shouldn't take up too much space, right?

Any update?
