Anyone got any useful links regarding Clipper figures? Looking to find out more about them: list of figures, availability, history, anything really.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link. Would also be interested in some of the main sculpt differences of the figures too (i.e. how easy is it to spot a loose Clipper figure?).

I'm not sure there is much difference in the sculpt of Clipper figures. Maybe the mail-away Vader (and I'm not totally sure about that either), but that's about it.

In the early days (SW, ESB) Clipper had their own carded figures, but I still think those were just Kenner figures repackaged on Clipper cards. Then when ROTJ rolled around, Clipper just applied their stickers/catalogs to the cards of other licensee's figures (Palitoy, Kenner, Tri-Logo, etc.).

I could totally be wrong on this (and hopefully one of the loose variant guys can help shed some light on this), but I think Clipper is mainly a MOC thing. Smile

True!

The vader is different, but also appeared on other cards and baggies! Clipper just bought figures...never produced IMO.

Ah I see. Yeah, was thinking the figure may have been different sculpts due to the Vader being different and a Logray baggie turning up on the bay.

At least I don't have to worry about tracking down more stuff for my collection (until I start getting more into MOCs anyway...).

LOL! Rest easy with that thought then mate! Smile

The world of carded variants is a slippery slope, more so than the loose ones! Smile
