Vintage New Zealand Action Figure Cardbacks

Postby MattG » Tue Jan 09, 2018 6:12 pm

For any vintage collectors with an interest in cardback collecting, I've just written up an article on the differences between the NZ-packaged Star Wars figures and the US Kenner versions (in 1978-1982):

If anyone has any carded figures or cardbacks from the 12-back through to 48-back era, it'd be cool to see more pics.... feel free to share here :)

Cheers.

Here's another photo I just added that demonstrates the size difference of the NZ vs US 21-back cards (NZ on top).

Great article Matt.

It's been hard to find much information regarding these figures. I had some cardbacks saved from when I was younger but they were 'lost' when I was in the Army (family members thinking they were old and not wanted).

Any more information you may have about these would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again .

Thanks. I personally find the differences to be a unique topic. I'll update that article from time to time as new info comes to light, but did so fairly recently, so it currently includes all images and details I have access to.
