Foreign Figures, Vehicles & Playsets
« on: June 29, 2003, 01:44 PM »
Does anyone has an interest in Foreign carded figures, vehicles & playsets?
The archive has fantastic pictures of these items that are from outside the US.

Foreign Related Vintage Clicky

I would love to get a carded figure from each foreign countrie. I really like the Palitoy cards, The one that actually say Palitoy on the card. They are so crisp & clear & are very displayable.
The only item I have is a Palitoy cardboard Death Star playset that can be seen in the collection section of the forum.
Sears Canada Death Star & Palitoy

So what do you think?

I really never had an interest in the foreign items.  I'm just planning on trying to get all the regular US versions, and then possibly trek out into the foreign world.

The US is foreign to Canada & visa versa. Stupid IMO. We are on the same continent so to speak. International according to the Post Office.  ::)

I like the foreign cardbacks.I have a few Tri Logo,Palitoy and Clipper carded figures.I've picked them all up cheaper than the Kenners so that makes it even better to me.The ones that really stand out in my opinion are the Lili Ledy.Those are great looking cardbacks.
