nice little discovery there Marco Cool

similar to when I found there were two variations of the X-Wing Fighter battle damage decals, I'd always assumed there was just one.

Hey cool, didn't know that either.


Here is another funny difference...



Palitoy Version (Kenner has the same artwork).

Source - Capetown



Lili Ledy version





No idea why the Death Star was replaced by a Endor like planet.


Maybe cause this is the first Death Star and Lili Ledy wanted to promote toys from ROTJ? unsure

Thanks

PostSubject: MECCANO FRENCH BOXED vintage AT-ATs    Tue Aug 20, 2013 2:51 pm

POTB SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

MECCANO FRENCH BOXED vintage AT-ATs

Stéphane Faucourt (chiquetaba) kindly forwarded us info and pics from two recent discoveries that he and fellow collecter, Yann Leroux, made regarding the AT-AT vehicle.

Thank you Stéphane and Yann for sharing these new discoveries with TIG's Project Outside The Box.

The entry for AT-AT vehicle has also been updated, see here: AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport)






Informtion and pictures by Stéphane Faucourt and Yann Leroux



How and when the AT-AT vehicle was originally released in France back in the 80s has always been quite a mystery. During many years, it was simply believed not to have been marketed.

With the surface of only Bilogo boxes (front side in English, back side in French) and listing in 1984 retailer catalog, it was believed to have been marketed late 1984; and unlike most ESB vehicles, there was no evidence so far about imported Kenner/Palitoy boxes with French notification stickers...

Well, more light can be made thanks to TWO incredible unreferenced variants made by myself and my pal French Collector Yann Leroux in the recent weeks: a Palitoy ESB box with Meccano sticker, and a Bilogo box with Meccano sticker and French Miro-Meccano ROTJ instructions.

That makes TWO significant discoveries on a same vehicle within a few weeks, which we are now sharing with the community .

This new information allow to determine that the AT-AT was first sold in France late 1983, from a Palitoy imported box, then quickly replaced by the Bilogo box on which a sticker was still applied, to finally end-up with the Bilogo box without any additions.

Of course, Meccano used to import ESB Palitoy boxes during the ESB marketing era and sold them with a French notification sticker and French ESB instructions (eg. Twin-Pod Cloud Car, Snowspeeder, and Millenium Falcon); however importing an ESB Palitoy box to retail during the ROTJ era is quite unusual.

The evidence of this AT-AT not being retailed during the ESB era is the ROTJ logo printed on the large notification sticker and the ROTJ French printed instructions.

In overall, the AT-AT was retailed in France throughout three variants:

1: Palitoy ESB 'Bounty hunter' box with French sticker + ROTJ Miro-Meccano French & Palitoy instructions
2: regular Bilogo ROTJ box with French sticker + ROTJ Miro-Meccano French & Palitoy instructions
3: regular Bilogo ROTJ box -without sticker- + ESB Kenner Canada & ROTJ Palitoy instructions

Cheers, Clint and Paul.

I try to make one or two empty entries every week now till they are all there.
From then on we only need to fill them with pictures.

So looking forward to the Canadian pics, Clint.  Very Happy

:bump: 

Is it me or are the pictures missing in some sections?
I have just looked at page 10 (falcon and imperial transport) and there are no images being displayed at all for those two.
I know not every entry had pictures, but I could have swore the Falcon had some if not at least one up.

I was looking at some ebay listings for boxed Falcons and in most shots with boxes, I can't see how in the heck the Falcon actually fits inside the box. It looks 6+++ inches longer. Poor angles distorting perspective?

Anyway............... just seeing if I was remembering something that wasn't there.

cheers!

Hi Jay, most of the more recent entries are still empty, like those for the Millennium Falcon and Imperial Transport.
So you must have seen ghosts.  Very Happy 

The idea is to first complete all entries and then fill them.

Cheers

Emiel, great thing that the collector's bug caught you again.

There are many more pics which you and others have sent me, just have troubles to divide my sparse free time nowadays over the many activities (Ledy, Poch, potb, facebook, and my own collection all of which desperately needs some attention). I don't complain, cause it is all fun to work on and provides some distraction from the hectic during the day. But I admit progress is a bit slow nowadays. Maybe I should go to Kamino and clone myself. Very Happy

Will react on your text message later, bro.
Cheers
