Nicely put together Olly!

Not sure the figures listed as 1st release are that though as prior to the Vectis auctions I saw no record of these before on eBay or here. That's not to say they're not but my theory on these are that they are the same production as the black promo Aug/July but unlabelled, first production either given or sold to the employees and that they didn't hit the shops like this. I'm still with Steve that the first release had the black promo sticker on.

Great to see lots of these variants tagged and shown though. Some really interesting stuff being brought to light. Including a lovely black gloves Baron!!! That was the Bain of my collecting life for years!!!

Happy to mail my filled in version back so you can see which figures I believe weren't produced on certain card backs.. For example Kraken, Space Engineer and Z Medic are only on 2 different cards.



Excellent, thanks, that'll help.
I've been working away on the Matrices in between being a full time dad and moving house.
I had corrected the omission, and my so far unpublished corrected version does have that column, but I would love to see your filled out version. I have only been working from photographs, not the real things, so your information trumps mine!

PM yours, or email me directly.
I'll publish the full thing, now with corrections, asap.
