I wouldn't believe it until I saw it and thankfully now I own it, Muton on the July August promo card with Mail away Commander offer on the left on reverse and stand up bubble.

The card is a bit tatty but I can't complain :)

Alright, even by my standards this is getting murky and complex. I need to re read this thread again... there is much here that needs adding to the Hopper Matrix, I fear!

On your Matrix, which btw has been a massive help to my collecting, you are missing a column for the July/August promo as a straight printed white star version. 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.

Some photos of my latest Palitoy employee vectis stuff.

All the figures have bubbles with stems (like some Star Wars). First 3 have stickers over the top of the white stars. Last two don't.

All backs have commander on left and no dotted line around the yellow info.

Re. Bubbles having numbers, certain Star Wars figures can be found with numbers or letters in the bubbles. Quote:

"The single stem bubbles have a number embossed on the bubble in the bottom right hand corner. Certain figures only used certain bubble numbers. Han Solo used 04, Death Star Droid used 02, C-3PO (Removable Limbs) used 015, AT-AT Commander used 01 & 03, Artoo Detoo (R2-D2) (With Sensorscope) used 12, Bespin Security Guard (Black) used 01, TIE Fighter Pilot used 13, Cloud Car Pilot used 02 & 03, Luke Skywalker (Hoth Battle Gear) used 03, 4-LOM used 13, FX-7 (Medical Droid) used 08, Imperial Commander used 01, Bossk (Bounty Hunter) used 03, Chewbacca used 02, Darth Vader used 08, Luke Skywalker used 02 & 04, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi used 04 and Stormtrooper used 03."
