Hi guys

Just wondering if anyone knows if Boba Fett came on Palitoy 41 back card with a square edged bubble? I'm looking at buying this figure, but have real concerns about the legitimacy of the card/bubble...heres a pic...

it may be worth posting this question on SWFUK as its a UK based forum & there are many Palitoy collectors on there, from what little I know about pali carded (& it is little) they all came with a rounded edge bubble, but as said my knowledge of the subject is very limited.

I love the Large palitoy Logo pali's though.

This may or may not be of help -

41s have the smaller logo, punch is too central : http://www.freewebs.com/mrpalitoy/esb41acardback.htm
when in doubt just contact Gary : http://www.starwarsforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=144&start=90
or Jason (mr palitoy)
edit Frank beat me to it.

thanks guys

fake looks like the likely answer. Its a 41E back, which according to the Mr Palitoy site, doesn't even exist with palitoy cards. So its either the find of the year, or a custom card... Razz

Palitoy Boba Question Boba_fett_palitoy_cardbacks_front2

Here's what a real one looks like. Top left is a 30b followed by a 41b and 41c. It's a 30B palitoy logo on the front, and a kenner/palitoy 41/41E on the back which would make it a custom.

cheers Jason

This is clearly a custom...

There's a good reference on the SWCA ; "Palitoy 30-Back Boba Fett"

Good Luck finding one sealed example...!!!
