Just wanting to get everyone's opinion here. That and get some more MOC talk going! Wink

I was just curious what everyone's favorite MOC line is? There's a ton to choose from out there. Harbert, GM, Kenner, Kenner Canada, Meccano, PBP, TriLogo, Palitoy, TolToys, TopToys, Glasslite... there's just a ton of them.

I think for me personally it's the GDE Kenner Canada line. I just love seeing that huge logo on the bottom of the 12backs. They are really different, bold and definitely noticeable from a distance. For some reason a close second would be the German General Mills... for reasons I can't quite explain.

Here's a pic of a GDE 12back for those that haven't seen one:

Good choice Chris! I don't know that I can pick a favorite as I like the unique characteristics of each line, but one that stuck out to me right away that I like are the POCH cards with the horizontal backs and not only because it is horizontal, but the unique image they used for displaying all the figures available.

I love the Clipper logo'd 12 Backs (actually i love all those 12 back with a foreign logo on it, like clipper, GDE, Palitoy, Toltoys and Meccano)
Hope to add some off those to my collection one day... but for now i'll keep on dreaming.. What a Face

Chris, i can't believe you forgot to mention Clipper.... geek

I've got a soft spot for the Palitoy 12 backs as every time I see one it takes me back when I was a kid trying to decide which one to spend my pocket money on, & the excitement of going home with a new figure. I can still remember the smell when I took them off the card (particularly the vinyl capes of Ben, Vader & Leia). Smile
I don't think I could afford one now though! Sad
I also really like the design of the Harbert cards.

Sorry about that mate! Very Happy

I left a few off that list now that I notice it. However, one was sort of intentional! Razz

I can't forget the bootlegs either. A few of those have some amazing cardbacks! Most notable is the Uzay, but the Hungarian line is quite fun too.

I have a soft spot for the Harbert cards, the logo is plain beauty.

But the Imperio Contraataca 10-backs form my favourite line with figures of which some never reappeared on later released Lili Ledy cards. I am quite sure my changes to ever own a cardback will be close to zero, making it also my personal grail item. I also hope that one day a MOC will turn up, Han Hoth would be cool.

Man how to choose ?!?!?!?!??!!?

Being a good Italian I'm going to agree with Marco and go with the Harbert SW ans ESB line. The logo's are just awesome on the SW line. It looks like they really made an effort to make it look good. The ESB line is only Boba Fett and Yoda and they actually have 2 different logos, both of which are badass.

In case you havent seen them

Yoda

All this said, the ESB POCH line is a very close second

If I had to choose I'd say Tri logo for a few reasons : it's a big run , there are so many alternate art cardbacks, many can be bought for fair/cheap prices, bubbles are clear, the figures themselves can be very different/neat variants & the different languages give it that international flair.

If I was to choose a small run it would be the 3 Takara variants (stormie, Vader & C3PO) because they are truely unique figures.

I most say that we have to divide this in 2 categories , That will be front and back!

Front : Uzay , Harbert , Canadian GDE.

Back : Lili Ledy Negative backs!! , POCH , Top Toys , Mecanno

I know this is a pretty broad answer. But I'd say any of the non-english printed cards. Something about most all of them is a bit exotic and cool. Also have a soft spot for the Palitoy cards with that nice big logo on the front.

Great thread and some really sweet moc choices everyone Cool

The Palitoy logos always remind me of getting my first few figures as a kid. I also really dig for the Meccano square cards and the Harberts for their graphics.

Also have a soft spot for these - which I think have a charm all of their own - the Kenner ROTJ 2 packs, cheap and cheerful end of line clearance mocs, usually lacking weapons/accessories.
I've seen these pairings upside down, back to front, in mangled bubbles, the works. And nothing printed on the backs either alien
