Hello all,
I've lurked for awhile and am just starting to post.  Does anyone know if the Droids, Ewoks, and Power of the Force catalog mailer sets actually exist?  They were offered in both the JC Penney and Montgomery Wards 1985 catalogs.  I have never seen them on Ebay.  Do you think that Kenner planned to sell them and then canceled the orders?  If they do exist are they in the white mailer boxes with Return of the Jedi stickers or did they develop a new sticker for Ewoks, Droids, and POTF?

PostSubject: VINTAGE STAR WARS MAIL AWAY ATL    Sat May 31, 2014 1:22 pm

Hi Everyone,
I bought a mail away ATL today. It comes in a plain white mailer box with cardboard insert, toy, decal sheet, instructions and mini catalogue. Toy is mint but decals have been applied.

I have bought and sold ALOT of vintage star wars over the years, but I have never seen one of these.

Anyone seen or had one and have a clue on value?

Thanks,
Rich (richierichcollectables)

PostSubject: ATL Interceptor MAIL AWAY!!!   Sat May 31, 2014 2:19 pm

STAR WARS MAIL AWAY ATL - RARE OR NOT RARE?

I have bought and sold more than my fair share of Vintage Star Wars stock but have never seen one of these. Have you guys? The pink Kenner Products card says on the back, "Thank you very much for purchasing a Kenner ATL Interceptor vehicle". Bla bla etc etc....

My only other opinion on the piece is that it was ordered from a catalogue and to save money they sent the toy in a white mailer box.

What's up Walkie  Very Happy it's been a while since I posted lol.

Is the Dark Grey V5 Imperial Blaster exclusive to the Droids Taiwan Fett? Or is it known to be packed with other versions? If so, is the V5 rarer?

Thanks

So still no HK card other then the shop sample.

And another production one with the modified text "MADE IN Taiwan".

Great pics by the way, are they yours?

Thanks so much for this thread. It's truly awesome.

James Woolley and James Kenneison sent me here from Echo Base UK after some blaster confusion. Very glad to have arrived. Wink

Glad you came back. The glasslite thall is quite rare so it is kind of sad to see his head snapped, however the "little surprise" Walkie is referring to I believe would be the vlix rifle. They are even more rare.
