PostSubject: Palitoy ESB Leia with Bounty Hunter sticker - PLEASE HELP ME! - this must be unusual   Sat Oct 29, 2016 2:54 pm

Hi -

I'm a newbie from Sweden, tryin to learn, tryin to find the great stuff cheap, tryin to understand, tryin to collect figures until they are complete in original packaging, tryin to make investments and some money to able to live.

But this collecting Star Wars-world is another universe - it's unbeliveable! Its difficult. Really difficult.

Anyhow I have one extremely important question:

How do I for sure know that the action figure and weapons/accessories and its original packaging is correct - before I for example send it to AFA / Toygraders (which is my goal with some collectibles, making it an investment for the future). To give an example, let's take Princess Leia which I've found on a Palitoy ESB  unpunched card with a BOUNTY HUNTER STICKER - in this case when I can't even find another backcard that is the same, how do i Know which version of Leia is the right one for packaging (i. e. the COO, or lack of it), which colour of her gun, and so on....?

PLEASE HELP!

2. And am I right when I'm starting to think that this Leia Card is very Rare?

Afa will grade loose figures or carded figures but this has been opened. They would only grade the figure so the cardback wouldn't even be looked at and if you sent it in they may even throw it away.

Hi, and thanks -

I didn't know that. Please help me with the following two questions:

1. How do you know for sure what goes with which action figure - how do/can I know which version of Leia that goes with this Palitoy ESB-card?

2. Is there any way to re-seal the card?

thanks in advance!

Reseals are frowned upon in most circumstances because they can lead to fraudulently selling the item as original at some point. There is a method for display using a toploader which I would recommend in this situation. Aussiejames may remember the thread describing this display option, or I will find it and post it later.

As for what card goes with what figure, research has shown us some answers on that. Palitoy did not produce their own figures so there likely would be several coo figures found on this cardback.  A Leia focus collector would likely have a more narrow answer, but since we are teetering on the boundary of reseal talk, I don't think I am comfortable with going any further with specifics (even if I had them).


Attached the image of the cardback to this post as well for those who may be unable to see it above as an image attachment.
