Thread: ROTJ 79 back question...

  1. #1

    ROTJ 79 back question...

    This kind of goes with my "ESB cardback" thread I posted a couple of days ago. I was just wondering if anyone knew if there some character's that are difficult to find on 79 backs??? Im talking about U.S abd Canadian releases.

    The reason I ask is that out of my collection of ROTJ's, I only have 3 79 backs. I was just wondering if this was a coincidence or are they hard to come by.

    thanks,

    Slap me silly if I'm wrong, but I don't believe that there are any 79 back Canadian cards. I think even the rebo band's a 77, but my memory is fuzzy.

    LUMAT and Paploo are both mexican 77's.

    Chris, 79s are quite difficult to come by, particularly for characters that are not from that second ROTJ series. I have yet to see a NN on a 79 back card, and he's a fart-common Jedi character.

    Thats what I was thinking John. Besides Lumat and Paploo(which are given), the only 79's I have are Boba Fett, Greedo and AT-AT Drvier.

    I never really thought about the ROTJ cardback's until I was doing a Excel file of my collection.

    I only have 3 in my collection so far ;

    Han Trench, Leia Boushh & Lumat.

    I'm sure there was a thread a while back about 'rare' ROTJ cards, but nothing with an actual list of 79bks.

    In my book, I show only 43 79-Backs that I'm aware of. I'm sure there are more out there but I doubt that all the first 79 characters were produced on 79-Back cards.

    The 79-Backs are the most difficust of the ROTJ cards.
