Weird, I've never heard of it either... Did the card originate in the U.S. ?

Slave I: Bradlees

I love the Bradlees stickers to begin with because for me the brown in the sticker is very nostalgic... It reminds me of the 70's, but notice the larger "Bradlees" brand sticker that is covering Fett & Lobot. I love the color!

ROTJ Millennium Falcon: Service Merchandise

I love this box, it's covered in stickers including a big blue and white one from the Warehouse... I wonder if this was a catalog order?

I find it very strange that the white sticker with red writing says "Wilson's" on it?? And the price is a couple bucks less than the original Service Merchandise price, but not the S.M. clearance price... I have no idea what went on with this box... Did it end up being sold as dead stock to another retailer? I have no clue... But the pink sticker suggests that it was sold to the public in a Service Merchandise showroom, remember those things?

Great additions! Love that Falcon box covered in stickers. Great to see some Aussie and German ones too. The large Bradlees store sticker is also cool, as is the one that matches Klaatu's fatigues. Good to see so many obscure indie stores. The TRU sticker looks good on that ESB Han Hoth moc as it matches the nameplate and figure bground. Love the names 'Venture' 'Scotch Corner' and 'David Jones', sound like pirate shops

lol!


Few more...

ESB Movie Scene Cards
Zayre sticker.





Star wars jigsaw Puzzle.
Just a cheeky bottom half remains of this store logo... anyone recognise it? Looks like it could be IDC?






Crown Japanese X-Wing Fighter bootleg.
Has had another sticker placed on top and looks to be faded. Can make out 400 Yen but that's about all. Would have been good see some Japanese text.






Romba POTF moc.
TRU sticker.

Artoo_Detour, great additions man! I love the Zayre price sticker with the little star/flower symbol next to the name, one of my all time favorites!

Also love that Japanese X-Wing Fighter bootleg! Beautiful box, color, and Art work! Never seen one of those before...

By the way, great point and observation on that TRU sticker Hoth Han, how could I be so blind and not make the connection, lol! Thanks for pointing it out, I have a whole new level of appreciation for it now!
