PostSubject: Pack in Catalog question   Tue Jun 27, 2017 8:24 pm

Is there a definitive guide somewhere showing what catalogs came with each toy? I'm aware of Project Out of the Box but is it possible that other catalog variations were inserted in boxes or was it done consistently? Hope I'm making sense...lol Thanks for any help and guidance!

For vehicles and playsets other than searching for individual threads I dont know of a single source that would show that.

For mailers and baggies these threads can help but you do have to dig some as some have just pictures and not descriptors on the catalog entries:

http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t1783-mailer-collections-guide

http://theswca.com/images-speci/mailorder/index.html

http://swspaceclub.com/mailaways/

Assuming the swca may have this information spread over the various toy entries but doubt it is consolidated into one spot.

"links I can't post yet"...lol

This gave me an idea and I'm going to run with it.  A little example:

The Landspeeder

1977: 1st packaging with the LP box has the Star Wars logo catalog with it.

1978: 2nd packaging  with special offer R2-D2/C-3PO had the X-wing catalog with it.

1979: 3rd packaging (no LP and no offer) has the Death Star battle catalog.

1984: 4th packaging (Collector's Series) has the Jabba Return of the Jedi catalog.

Something like that.

would be a great project if you can run with it. be sure to know which catalog and if there is already any vernacular associated. I know I have seen stuff say "Large catalog" and "small catalog" when dealing with fett mailers so not exactly sure of the differences as I never delved into mailers a lot, but the toys (ships/playsets) may also have a large and small one.
