Cheers Matt! When I saw that Parker Bros ad from Alpha Flight ad I got all goosebumpy as I'd never seen that one before, and it seems to show an XWing pilot even though the mission brief is to fly the Millenium Falcon thinking  

Cheers Craigy! Star Wars advertising really turned into one of my big collecting passions these past few years, along with other toy ads and catalogue pages they're interesting little snapshots of the toy and license  history. They're also the next best thing to having the actual toys themselves when funds are tight
lol!

Hey Skywalker, good to see you back and good you're still collecting the French Pif Gadget run. I finished my run (based on Stephane's From Meccano to Trilogo book) a while back. Managed to find some others not covered in the book too. There are still a few rare Pif related items for me to get though. You did well to capture the Pif Poche 218, one of my fave French ads, and not always easy to find. Congrats cheers

Hey! Yes, I'm here again. I'm much more into Matchboxes nowadays, I think I also finished my SW run but there are always bits to collect
Sounds interesting those rare PIF related items, could you please show me them?
And I'm desperately into a small french toy catalog from 1984 or 1985, contains only 1 page about SW and it was also a PIF giveaway and not mentioned in Stephane's book.

Not a bad price in the end for a sealed SW issue with gadget.

Not very cool of him to use the pics without asking though. Wonder if he reads the forum even or just surfed for pics an too them out of google images or something.

It would have been cool to put a link to TIG and my site. Don't know if he uses the sites or as you say just took the images from Google. I always add my site name on my pics in the hope it brings new viewers, so in a way I don't mind this blogger using them as it's extra exposure, but yeah, a link to the sites at least would have been nice.
