Interestingly (or not) it's limited to those with the July/August sticker it seems. Underneath a lot of the stickers it's printed on the card, but those card backs are the normal layout. Even though the bubbles are early, and the figures are early.

So even though it's clearly early, the layout is regular, not alternate.

Have a look at that bubble - I wouldn't be surprised if the bubble was placed over the sticker.
The Type 2 Ironblood I think came in later than that card (October 1983, along with Q Force and Space Force). I would assume that it is a new figure on an old card.
Or perhaps it has had the later sticker peeled off. Any glue or anything present?

It's not my figure, I found the image on a site selling AF, but it has sold though or I would have bought it. Hard to tell.. The bubble is the right bubble, it is close to the sticker, is recarding figures something that happens in AF?

Could this Baron just be a newer Baron introduced at the end of those cards?

Which site is that? Or is it a secret secret?
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Hi Paul

It's not a secret no :)

I think it was here

But having double checked it might not have been as that figure has been removed.
