I like these. Perhaps someone ought to share over at swfuk to show how palitoy do stuff, or maybe theyll just assume toytoni has been at work.

I like to know if the bubbles are the same kind used, & attached in the same position, as for Star Wars figures.

Definitely looks like stuff from the 'use up what we have left' time at Palitoy.

It not just Palitoy who were lax with quality control. At the end of the Star Wars era in Europe on the Trilogo cards many companies paired up figures with the wrong bubble/cardback/accessory. There are enough examples that people collect these and often pay a premium for what is essentially a clearance item.

Those bubbles do look like ROTJ and Trilogo era bubbles, it should be noted that Trilogos don't feature a waffle pattern in the seal whereas ROTJ MOCs do. However without seeing them in the flesh as it were its hard to say for certain.
