Hello fellow collectors,
This is my first post so be easy on me!
I've been collecting vintage cardbacks for a little while now. My original idea was to collect all 92 Kenner characters plus Yak Face on the first cardback they appeared on ie R5D4 SW, 2-1B ESB, 8D8 Jedi, EV9D9 POTF etc.
Then I noticed that certain foreign cardbacks have a completely different picture of the character compared to their Kenner counterpart ie Lili Ledy R2D2. I have now decided to try and collect every picture variation! I have the John Kellerman book so know about all the Kenner picture variations (unless there are more?) ie the 2 different Boba Fett picture cardbacks etc.
My question is, what foreign cardbacks have completely different character pictures? I'm not concerned with cardback pictures that have been slightly altered compared to their Kenner counterpart ie Tri-logo IG-88 or those that have a different picture crop ie Tri-logo Amanaman. What I'm interested in is those with a completely different picture. From doing a little research on online I have found these variations:
Lili Ledy R2D2
Lili Ledy C3PO
Tri-logo Luke Bespin
Tri-logo Leia Hoth
Tri-logo Tie Fighter Pilot
Tri-logo AT-ST Driver
Are there any more?
Also, if anyone has any reasonably priced cardbacks for sale please feel free to PM me.
Thanks for your help,
