The number of variants / combinations of card fronts and cardbacks for vintage Star Wars action figures is huge and it is easy to be lost on what exists and what does not. The Kellerman’s book about Vintage SW Figures had some matrices which http://www.rebelscum.com posted in their website some time ago making a call for the global collecting community to contribute helping further complete the matrices, as there are yet combinations/variants which are believed to exist but not confirmed. Whether you are new or experienced to collecting Vintage SW blisters these matrices for Front-Back variations and Proof Cards are a very powerful tool to understand what you have and what else exists out there.

Use the link above for the http://www.rebelscum.com article, you can directly download the matrices here:

The Vintage Collection has been the best Star Wars action figure collection ever. Yet, when you search in the internet you will struggle to find good figures reviews and analysis of this collection, only www.jeditemplearchives.com had an excellent coverage of the releases in this line. As a tribute to the line this website organized in 2013 a special report with owners of famous websites of the collecting community to select and review what were the best of the 100+ figures released in The Vintage Collection. Hasbro also was invited and featured in this report with their opinions. If you really are into this line you must read this report with a cup of coffee, enjoy!

Tip: Watch out because the basic text is in black color against black background, probably due to some reformatting of the site after the report was posted there. You will have to select the text to highlight and be able to read it. I have notified this to JTA for their repair but maybe it won’t be still modified by the time you read it.
