She's not in mint condition, card is pretty decent. A little warped like many cards that aren't $300... but what I found interesting, the bubble is low on the card... so low, it's actually 'lower' than the bottom of the card itself. I have no question this is real because the person I bought it from. She also gets 'stuck' up at the top of the bubble Smile at times. But it's a nice (as in clear) bubble that is a bit crushed at the bottom left corner.

Thoughts on the 'low' bubble? THANKS AND HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS & HANUKKAH (or whatever you celebrate!!!).

I have just bought a Lando Skiff on a Palitoy card with the double stem bubble (nice on Steve, I'm buying MOC's now!) the double stem bouble is exactly the same as your Leia Boushh and it too is slightly low on the card, it even allowed for me too pop a pin under it to try and even out a slight left corner crush. Funny thing is when it arrived, Lando's head was also stuck in the gap  like yours  Razz  I had to shake him free. I'm not an MOC expert at all so I'm not sure, maybe this is common on the double stem bubbles? I'm just glad mine has price sticker residue!!!!!

Shit, just noticed, yours isn't even a double stem! just has the bit for the Gun, sorry. just looks like it had the double stem, there is a mark on the card where it looks like the second stem used to be :scratch:

Don't worry about more pics, I see exactly what you mean. No, she doesn't have a double. Just hangs over a bit. Interesting bubble though!

Thanks for the info!

Sorry Alex, but if you made the effort to win one of my competitions... I can't be held responsible for your future collecting habits!  Twisted Evil

Going back to the topic... I've had Palitoy moc's with the overhanging bubble pass through my hands. I'll see whether I've still got one. BTW, it's nice to see you posting again!

Thanks CP, I've been so busy with grad school and two jobs (one is being the GA at my college) as well as taking care of my girls... but I've slowly added some non-major MOCs (General Madine, Prune Face) and a few I think I posted that were major... POTF R2D2 pop-up saber, POTF TIG Smile and this Leia (she's not major but to my 11-year old, she's in love with her).

Since school is out things are slower, I'll be able to post more and hopefully in the next month or two add to my collection.

I started posting about a year 1/2 ago? Started out with one figure, I believe it was Darth Vader ROTJ from Berizing... and now I'm up to 30 MOCs. My favorite has to be the C-3PO (ROTJ) with removable limbs, Palitoy. But he is PERFECT. If there is ever a HIGH end grade, he would get it... no doubt. Looks like he came off the factory floor. Then I have the Star Wars case he's in signed by Anthony Daniels himself Smile Love it.

Anyway, my addiction may never end until I have my own full room full of them, or I die first.

Don't want to completely destroy your day, but how perfect is your removable limbs Palitoy C-3PO, it didn't originate from Toy Tony did it?  Crying or Very sad

@ Steve : I couldn't leave Lando on his own, saw this on ebay and thought, fuck it, it's Christmas and bought him, the next day I saw the Toy Tony story, wounded! Been collecting for 17 years and never bought an MOC finally buy one and the next pissing day the biggest scandel in collecting history happens, and my figure falls into that scandel! So glad to see the price sticker residue when it arrived  cheers 

They look nice together though chief, and I intend to stretch the mini focus further  doh

Can you post up a close up pic when you get time please:

probably used the double stem sealing plate to give the 'look' of a double stem.
