Are not all vintage star wars card backs the same size? I purchased a 77 back Boba Fett on Ebay and tried to put it into one of the new protech star cases that I just got. However, the figure would not fit in it. I was able to put my two other Jedi carder figures in there no problem, and standing them next to each other, the Boba is slightly taller. The Boba Fett is made in Taiwan where as the other two were not, I don't know if that makes any difference or not. Is this normal? Or did i end up with a rather expensive recard? Thanks for your help!

We were just discussing this very same thing in the cardback collectors thread.

The discussion starts at the bottom of page 6.

Hope this helps. Very Happy

That certainly makes me feel better, thank you. Are there different sizes of star cases then? The site i bought mine from made no mention of varying sizes, only that they fit classic star wars figures.

I don't know if the star cases come in different sizes? I only have a few.

Hopefully the other guys may be able to help you with your star case question. Very Happy

I have a few 'different' star cases they are not a snug fit & am surprised a Taiwan card is creating a problem?  They do stick out just a little bit from a toploader (obviously just cardbacks)

EDIT: I should double check before making statements  Embarassed  A Taiwan card IS too tall to fit in a starcase without putting pressure on the top & bottom edges.
