PostSubject: Bossk Canadian Transitional?   Bossk Canadian Transitional? I_icon_minitimeSun Mar 31, 2013 5:32 pm

I Have what I think is a Bossk Kenner Canadian Transitional Carded fig. I got it as its seen, i have done nothing to it other than look at it and smile at it. I haven't been able to find much information on it or Transitional cards.
It has the Jedi sticker but its peeling a bit. As You can see it has no "offer" sticker on the front, it does seem like something was once there, theres some "glue" I think. In the top right it looks like a price tag was removed. The bottom of the bubble is peeling from the card and is a little dented on the bottom footer. I hope these pics are clear enough to help.
I guess my main concerns is it a Can. Trans. carded figure? Or what is it? Whats its value range? How common? Any idea how to best stop the peeling of the Jedi sticker? I would love any help, info or links anyone can share with me about this.
Thanks!

Great pics, hope I can shed a little light. It is a transition card that, far as I know, only happened in Canada. Many 41-45 bk figures got three stickers attached to them. The ROTJ logo, the Ackbar circle sticker for the front, and the big overlay for the back. I'm on my mobile but there is a site that can tell you which figures have been discovered with this. I've seen about 15 different one off the top of my head.

If there is residue on the card from a missing sticker, that will cause a decrease in value. I've seen them as low as $300 and some break into the thousands. Without knowing if many Bossk ones exists, I'd say you are at the lower end, especially given the missing sticker. That said, still an assume card!!

Great find, I love Transition cards!

Scott Bradley's website has some info about them:

Check out Scott McDonald's collection of 31 figures, plus some great discussion:

Thanks JesseV.08, I hadn't seen that collection before. I wonder what backs they have and also if hes filled that collection out more since the orig post in 07.
I also know this site but it doesn't say much. Either about a Bossk 41 backs or what backs are more common.

Everyone seems interested but nobody seems to know too much. Still searching.
