Hey all this is very interesting to me. I was talking to a friend of mine who has a MOC Nadine he was going to trade for some of my items it turned out I already have a moc Nadine, he rechecked his and found it was a Canadian one so that got me thinking so I checked mine it's a regular U.S. one. But then I decided to check the rest of my MOC collection and found this. It appears a biker Scout I bought here in the city for dirt cheap is a Palitoy one if I am reading this right. I always thought the front of the card had Palitoy on it.

Here are the photos I took of a regular U.S. figure and this Palitoy one why I didn't notice this before just amazes me.

U.S. Carded Han

The Palitoy logo only appears on the front of the SW and early ESB moc's. The later releases look like your Biker Scout. Its a nice moc! Smile

Cool I didn't know that it was dumb luck that I got it so cheap as neither me nor the seller obviously noticed it Smile

Cool find. Yes the Palitoy logo appeared for the last time on the ESB 45A card.

Palitoy stock like Tri-Logo's where ultimately recalled by General Mills and many ended up State side. Just look at the recent Lando Skiff Palitoy MOC I bought, purchased in the U.S. and baring the remnants of a Kay-Bee price sticker.
