Very Happy

Question - is this advert taken from the back page or one of the inside cover pages? I notice it looks very glossy. I also have this advert (from Battle comic) but the printed paper is very thin from these comics and they didn't have the glossy front/back covers.
Cheers,

I'll double check tomorrow, I think that one is the back cover.

It's page 2 (on the rear of the cover) therefore you should be able to track down a good example easily Smile

The Pali DV TIE Fighter was one of the ones featured in the blog post I linked in Alex's Pali thread http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/index.php/2013/02/26/palitoys-star-wars-ads-the-forgotten-comics/#

It's really nice to see these pop up as glossy ads as well as the numerous newspaper print styles from UK comics such as Battle, Victor, Tiger etc.

Always good to see these ads Cool


here's something not many know... on Stefan's ROTJ competition advert, if you look at the Vader store display in the bottom right (enlarge the photo image first by click to see fullsize!) you can see that the logo is actually 'Revenge' of the Jedi Wink

The artist's drawing was made before the decision was taken to rename 'Revenge' to 'Return'.

This is the same as the French advert version I have (I think Clipper and GM also used this ad too)
