Cheers Josh Smile It's pretty staggering just how much advertising is out there when you add up all the different licenses. I love them, and have most of the Meccano ones plus a fair few US ones too. For me they make nice little documents of the SW toy history.

Everyone, feel free to add your vintage SW adverts here and discuss. We'll add your pics to the previous license posts in this thread + photo credit to you.

Here's another to add for U.S.

This image is of the ad slick, but I've found the ad in issue 3 of the Muppets magazine with the Star Wars cover and also a revised version of the ad in issue 4 with the Henry Winkler cover.
