A large Palitoy Star Wars Return of the Jedi promotional Toy display unit dating from the early 1980’s/1983.

The display was used by Palitoy UK under licence by Kenner USA as a feature at toy exhibitions around the world including New York, London and Germany. It was the only one produced.

The display unit has been exquisitely made & has black felt on the top & sides. It has a curved shape to the front with plastic Perspex. It is in very good condition with no damage to display unit or the actual display.

It contains the following:

62x action figures all unplayed with & stuck down.
2x Creatures.
12x ships/vehicles/mini-rigs.

I have personally given the display unit a very good clean including the black felt.

I bough this from a very reputable auction house here in the UK. A full typed letter of provenance will be included by the original owner.

Please copy & paste the links into your search bar.

I have also added a video showing the toys moving & the display cabinet lights up.

Nice one Rich, that is one awesome piece mate.
Were you at the auction house?

Which house was it?
I've bought a few bits at auctions and it's a friggin buzz.

Love it mate, really do.

Won it over the phone & my heart was pounding. I have to drive 3 hours up to Derby to collect it & 3 hours back.

I don't collect anymore so I will be selling this eventually & will be looking for a large sum.

Cheers,
Rich

Fair point, but I am sharing it with collector's.

I had a huge collection but recenly sold due to a baby on the way. Trust me, I wouldn't have sold up if I had a choice.

Madness! Shocked

I'm guessing you're sorry you don't have room for this yourself. But then I'm also guessing there's a special joy in getting this out of obscurity and into the collecting community while making some money in the process. Smile

Riche,

Holy crap, based upon the sizes of the figures and vehicles this diorama must be HUGE. affraid

It would fit nicely next to my Jabba Palace. Do you want to trade for an ultra rare black Wampa? What a Face
