Series 3 uk carded versions

Postby Coosbay_pirate » 13 Dec 2015 20:14

I collect all the country MOC versions of all Palitoy figures and have found the series 3 UK cards tricky to come by, wondered if it was just me or if it's known they're harder to pick up than the Euro ones.. And if so does anyone have a theory as to why this is?

I'm also looking for Scrap Iron, Snow Job and Major Bludd to complete series 3 if anyone has these to trade or sell.

Good luck with Snowjob mate, gonna need deep pockets for that one.
Great work getting this far though, a great collection in a short period of time for sure.

Cheers Warren

It's been roughly 1.5years and its crazy how much Can be amassed in a short period. I've over 120 carded figures including some of the rarest, a load of Germans, all of series 1 and 2, the Minesweeper and 2x series 3 Flash on different cards. I was offered Scrap Iron and Major Bludd once but I wasn't in a position to buy at the time alas. I've actually just put the entire collection into storage for a rainy day or when I have more space.. It was a pallet full!

All figures are in cases so they take up a bit of room.

I know how long Steve took to find Flash and Snow Job, you are looking at an expensive up hill battle. Hamburger hill, in fact.

The English Language cards are generally single bubble and the codename text is bigger than the bilingual cards. However, I have no idea as to why the English cards are harder to find than the bilingual cards. I would say they were released first and there was a change in production but I have English/Single Bubble cards with 40p Pound Stretcher price stickers which suggests they were still available at the end of the line. Then again considering the mystery of Palitoy production and miscards they could quite easily have been overstock.

I picked up 2x Flash figures relatively easy and both within a year of collecting and both well priced, especially one in particular.. I guess everyone has their grail or bane which ever way you look at it. But yes it would seem that Snow Job is the trickiest of all to get hold of.
