77 Back on a 65 Back Empty
PostSubject: 77 Back on a 65 Back   77 Back on a 65 Back I_icon_minitimeWed Apr 20, 2011 10:27 am

Does anyone know how common or rare it is to see a 77 back figure on a 65 back card? A buddy of mine came to me yesterday and offered to sell me a (Canadian) Nikto on a 65 back card. I never gave that kind of "mis carding" a 2nd thought so it was new to me when he offered it. Is this kind of error common with the Jedi figures or is it something more common on Canadian carded figures?

Although I'm not too familiar with Canadian cards, I think it's quite common to see with them. Don't quote me on that, but I'm sure there are some instances of this happening with the Canadian line.

Interesting none the less. I'd at least like to see pics of it! Very Happy

There are four - 8D8, Nikto, Prune face and Klaatu skiff. I was told that Canada were a bit behind the states with actualizing the cards when the 77 backs were made, so they had the new figures but not the new cards - that's the most logical reason for these 4.

You may be confusing the two different Canadian 65backs. Those 4 you listed are 65B cards (Emperor offer), but there are a number of other figures from the 65A cards (Nien Nunb offer) that reappeared on the 77backs.

Check out Scott Bradley's fantastic site for the list:

I hope that helps!

Well he mentioned it was Nikto so I thought I would explain there was only 4 on the particular card that he has been offered (Nikto was an emperor offer - 65b as you explained Smile )
Makes for a nice small run if you are bored - try getting them all with clear bubbles though Laughing

You are so right, I should have read closer to see it was a Nikto he had. I've been slowly getting into vintage Canadian figures, so I'm trying to learn as much as I can myself.
