Always good to find figures in the wild.

Couple more print adverts to join the collection... 1980 Castors Juniors as featured in Stephane's book 'From Meccano to Trilogo'. I always wanted this issue but it's not easy to find, so was pleased to come across an ad for it at least Smile




and another 1980 Meccano

Paul that’s a great couple of paperwork pieces.

I love the explosive cover of Castors, with the mix of star wars and mechanical toy robots! Very cool!

Nice to hear from you!

Cheers Craig, hope all is well? Those last two ads were complete bonuses as they came in a lot of Matchbox and Scalextric ads I picked up to go on my site cheers

Awesome;

Well talking of paperwork... I was lucky to win this recently...




Our Town Centre didn’t have a Toy R Us size superstore back in the 80s.

So smaller retail places like John Menzies, Woolies, Toymaster and Tescos would have been the places to pick-up figures and toys.

This poster was an exclusive freebie to folks who spent more than £5 on star wars. Love the giant imagery!

My Third ESB-h baggie arrived today... here's the Trio. You can read more about it on my blog page, but it appears I have found the first (to me) Unitoys Luke Jedi Baggie. Even after all these years of collecting Luke Jedi... something new pops up.

Very nice. Always like seeing the John Menzies logo as we had one on our estate, and I picked up a few Star Wars toys as well as other toys there back in the day cheers

Palitoy Factory Luke Jedi Overstock…

A part of my Luke Jedi focus this year has been to work on the preservation and display of the pieces that I already have. Below is a display case of 8 (mint & unused) Palitoy factory overstock Luke Jedi figures and accessories.

These figures were made by the vendor Smile in the Far East and have the full “Hong Kong” COO stamp on the boot and come with the blue sabre. They are part of a huge quantity of Palitoy overstock that made its way to Australia after the Star Wars toy line died down in the 80s.





These are from the same “loose” stock that Palitoy would have used to card-up both Palitoy 65-B and 65-C cardbacks locally in Coalville, UK and also package earlier Luke Jedi Palitoy Baggies that had the blue sabre inside.

If you have time, check out my Luke Jedi Blog and scroll down to Blog Update-12 on page 2 to hear about how Nicholas Kazonis bought literally 1000s of these overstock figures:
