Those are awesome Soren!

I think any kind of distribution /translation stickers that narrow a toy down to a specific country is a great item, I can't believe you have so many !

Chief-mattias is Mattias Rendahl from RS, I can drop him a line to this thread maybe he will sign up and give some more insight or some of his own examples if you want ? Very Happy

Hi Soren,

Wow, that's a very interesting collection you got there, thanks for sharing dude!
Swedish companies apparently like to stick to the colours of their national banner. Very Happy Can't blame them, this orange/yellow is a perfect fit with the vintage boxes. It also reminds me of the yellow used on the >45 cardbacks.

Were there also labels with the name of the swedish toys importer, like you see on the white label on the back of Italian MOCs?

In Sweden Playmix vere the importer of star wars stuff. I think Playmix was a part of the Brio-companies.

Hi Dr D

Thanks for the kind words. I have never thougt about the color as Swedish and when you see the stickers IRL they ar not the color of the Swedish flag.

I have never seen any company stickers on boxes or Moc's . A have a few moc's i brougt in Sweden back in the days and the look like any other moc's

But i have an MOTU poster where the company Scanditoys are on it.

Yes, Michael Playmix / Scanditoy / Brio is /was the same company

It seems that there is no boxes from Star Wars that has survived or they might not have put the stickers on them that early.
Playmix didn't start the import of Star Wars toys in Sweden until 1982 so their stickers can only be found and ESB and later boxes. It's very little known about Alga that did the import during the SW-era.

Congrats on a great collection!

Nice information Roger Smile

This stuff is very niche but also very cool - I like how people from each country SW was available in are naturally drawn to pieces that originated in their home country Smile Its very patriotic Wink

"I have found out that some of you guys don't know about the little stickers that it seamed to have been put on all vintage Star Wars boxed items sold in Sweden back in the days"
I certainly had no idea about them. It's really neat to see them. Were there any MOCs that got a similar 'treatment' ?

Thanks guys . They are very hard to track down and go for high prices when they pop up.
Al most all of the ones i have comes from my child hood collection.

James : I have never seen any stickers on Swedish moc's . I think the main reason is that you could see what was in them. You could mot see that in the boxed suff and they offen pictured the vicheles with figures in them that where not in the box.

So the stickers where just to let people know that they only got the vicheles and not the figures.

Gets me to wonder what kind of sticker they would have put on boxes with figures included Very Happy But i don't think any of those where sold in Sweden.

I still hope to get some free time to do a little special on Danish price tags on Cardbacks and boxes . And our new member pomse2001 who also is from Denmark , has a nice colletion with danish stickers on them . That im trying to lure into doing a post with me about them aswell Very Happy

Nice post Soren and it´s really cool that you have so many nice swedish related items.

I´m far from an expert in the swedish related stuff. Mattias is the man to ask here. And I doesn´t actively looking for swedish stuff, but I try
to pick up stuff when there is a chance given. I had some playmix displays, that I traded away years ago and that I still miss, but they went
to a good home. Anyway last year there was a couple of really nice finds in Sweden, at least in my eyes Smile. So fun when you still can be
amazed and suprised.

An other collector found an amazing AT-AT (MISB) with shipping box and swedish stickers, in super condition. The other
cool find was when from nowhere, 5 Palitoy 12 backs with swedish price stickers showed up. Very interesting all together and I guess
some conclusion can be made and looking of the distibution of MOC´s in Sweden I guess you can find a little bit of everything. From
regular Kenner to Palitoy and so on.


Playmix poster, rather cool that the figures displayed on top are prototypes. Together with the Playmix displays this is probably my favorite
in swedish unique items.



Palitoy AT-ST (with swedish stickers and made in France)




Palitoy 12 backs with swedish price stickers, otherwise nothing different with them.


Speeder Bike (with white dockor/figurer ingår ej), shipping box with numbers hand written on it.




Or some Palitoy Boba Fett (cardbacks) that are proven sold in Sweden.

Soren, is all the great stuff you got, bought in Sweden?

Again thanks for a nice post mate Very Happy
