Topic: Palitoy vs Kenner

Does anyone know if the Palitoy paint variation of the vintage Boba Fett figure is any more rare  than the Kenner version?  And if so, does this effect it's price?

I don't really care about the "price" of the figure it's more an issue of VALUE to me. I will pay more for something that I really want than it is worth if I really want it...does anyone follow?

Re: Palitoy vs Kenner

Hmm... Palitoy appears to be a British toy company that was bought by Hasbro. Which Boba Fett figure is this and where does it say Palitoy?

Couldn't find anything about the actual rarity of the Palitoy version of the Boba Fett figure.  Looks like it was released mainly in England, though.  I'm sure it's more rare in the states, than overseas.  I did find this really neat site that lists pretty much all the Fett figures released from that era.

The list is pretty thorough and they have some very nice pics (something for the bounty page?).  There's several different Palitoy variations of the card, mainly on the back.  There's also a "non-painted" leg tools variant of the Palitoy Boba Fett figures that sell for pretty steep on eBay and eBay.UK. 

While doing a search around for it, I found an article that seemed like it might be helpful, but the link no longer exists or the source webpage.  It's the first one on the search list.

Oh, I did, however, find this neat little Palitoys advert...

Hope this helps out somewhat.

Palitoy was a British company and had the SW license back in the day for the UK and other places in Europe.

The original (vintage) Boba Fett figure has several variations but the most obvious is the shade of green used for his chest armor. I got a Palitoy version a few months ago loose with the original weapon and card from a guy that had had it since he was a kid.

Since then I have been looking around price guides etc. for details on the price difference. Again I don't really care how much it is worth in terms of how much I can make off of it because I want to keep it for myself. I am just curious as to what the difference is in prices depending on the variations.
