Again, nice. What's the sizing on your double stem blister? If it's a different size than my version, I'd love to trade some with you.

I don't know the exact dimensions, I'd have to measure it, but I do know that it was made from a original Palitoy Snowtrooper blister (an extra from my personal collection in fact). I worked with TJ's on this, so I got a handful of hand made proto-types to make the sample carded figures for photos. By the I don't personally own one, but I've seen several Palitoy TIE Fighter Pilots with double footed blisters, you wouldn't happen to know if they used the same size blister would you?

Yeah, mine was made from the Meccano Tri Logo General Madine blister smile.gif

I think mine's a little bigger than yours. ...

Wow. That sounded sooo wrong!

Well, admittedly I don't know much about the Meccano series, but I do think I remember that the Madine is pretty rare with double foot blister. Mine is by no means rare, but it's pretty neat just the same. I've been comparing photos of carded vintage Palitoy TIE Figther Pilots, and the blisters on those look pretty darn close to the blisters used on the vintage Snowtroopers. I've got to find an extra TIE Fighter pilot before I try carding one though, I only have one open in my collection.
