PostSubject: New Focus - Seeking Information   New Focus - Seeking Information I_icon_minitimeFri Oct 28, 2011 2:14 pm

So I've amassed an army of loose AT AT Drivers. Don't ask me why, I just really like the guy. I've got over 20 loose figures of various COO's and all kinds of different bootleg AT AT Drivers (working on trying to obtain an Uzay soon), and an ROTJ moc.

So I've decided to start my first real character focus on this guy. I know there are tons of COO variants and all kinds of different colored emblems. My biggest question is how many different cardbacks are there? I know the obvious ESB 41 back, the ROTJ, POTF, and Tri-logo. But how many different variations of the cards are known? I'm lost when it comes to things like A,B, C back, etc... The only other example I've find around has been a Palitoy ROTJ.

I'm just looking for some info that can help me know what to hunt down.

Chris J - it's seems you've done a similar run in the past? How'd I miss out on that? Gimme some help!

I found Wollf's COO guide on him:

ahhhh...I have afew more by now...and it seems its endless! There is lot of "leg-switching" on those! In general there is only 2 different molds, three different emblem colors and some cool variants....

btw...where did you found those pictures??? They must be gone by now...AJ saved some I think! Just curious! Its funny to see, that I can already google some of my pics...saved from users I never heard of...and uploaded on sites I nevered used! LOL

Hey Wollf, I found the pics in another thread that came up in search. And yes, they were posted by AJ, lol.

So for simplicity purposes what are the 2 different molds I should be looking for? I know the emblem colors and I'm pretty sure I've got a pink one (along with the red and orange) although it's just from my observations and comparisons.

Thanks!

Dallas

From a MOC perspective, there are a couple of pretty rare ones.

Meccano ESB Square Card might take the cake

The POTF is pretty rare as well and the Canadian Transition!

I didnt get too far into it really, D. I had mostly loose with a few MOCs and cardbacks. But for US release stuff,heres a list of them

41-A
41-C
41-E
47-A
48-C
48-D
65-A
65-B
77-A
79-A
POTF

Clipper sticker version (45bk and Palitoy 45 bk, and 70bk Tri-logo),

4 different Tri-Logos (70-B, ROTJ 45/64 Palitoy bubble, large round edge bubble, and miscardshape bubble),

Palitoy ( 30B, 41A, 45AB, 45B, 45C, 45CN, 65D, 70B, 70BM, and 70BE).
For the 45AB, 45CN, 70BM and 70 BE that last letters are B = black background which is used to distinguish between the two ESB 45-back Bounty Hunter Offer variations, N = Netherlands/Dutch for foreign cards with a Palitoy sticker on the back of the card to replace missing 45B & 45C cards for certain figures, M = Fabrique a Macao, and E = Fabrique en Espagne for Tri-Logo cards with a different country of origin on the front via a black or white sticker covering over the original country of origin.

Canadian releases. 41A and 41C

So in other words, your going to have your hands full with them. Those above are the ones I found real quick for you. Ill look around some more and see what others I can dig up for you. This doesnt include any transitions, sticker combos or anything, just regular realeses.

Damn Chris, thanks for making this task seem quite daunting! Guess it gives me plenty of options to choose from!

Liam - thanks for looking out bud but that's an unpainted overstock. Not the finished product I'm looking for. I know Martijn and will tell him no worries. I've got one in the works.

Thanks for the links AJ.

Man, here I was thinking I was getting into a nice little focus project. Damn was I wrong! At least this will give me a long term project to work on with no need to rush into.

And of course it will only come second to my bootleg focus (which is at a stalemate right now. Until the Uzay of course!)

Dallas, great idea to go for a focus and the ATAT guy is a cool character. I wouldn't be too daunted about some of the pricier items really - it's like with my Luke/X-Wing focus I know there are some hefty-priced pieces out there, and also pieces like the Trilogo X-Wing or the Meccano carded Luke XW which are rarer than rocking horse shit. Some items I know I will most likely never get. But as you said in last post, it's a good long term project to get into with no rush. It's nice to be able to pick up the odd piece then go back to concentrating on other stuff.
One thing though... are you tempted to get yourself a big AT-AT boxed vehicle to go with the focus? Or are you just sticking with the figures?
Good luck with the run mate Cool

Thanks for all the great input so far guys. If anyone should stumble across any related items shoot me a PM Very Happy

Paul - I will pick up a loose AT AT at some point. Probably one that needs a little work just to keep costs down. Of course I'll fill it with my other Hoth Imperials. A nice boxed AT AT is a long term goal, as is the Special 3 Pack with Imperial Commander, Dengar, and AT AT Driver. Daunting, I know - but i'm still young lol!
