I don't recall ever seeing any pictures of the actual Lili Ledy facotry, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there.

oh even better, a guy on RS was selling Ledy leaflets. I am sure one was a mail in promo. Look for the leaflets and find the add that way. Check google maps and search for pictures of the address?

I remember seeing pictures of ex employees with bags of old overstock, this was a visit I think a few collectors made to Mexico and may have even involved Gus, I have no idea where those pictures were posted but they may have even had a shot of the old factory.

Shawn has a good memory - I bet that rings a bell with him as well.

Ok after quite a bit of searching - The big overstock Ledy find that most people recall was made by a guy called Pedro ( his RS username is - boba_fett_test_shot ) now about 4 years ago, even some of the bigger guys were looking for the old pictures and I just went through a hefty portion of posts by Pedro and still haven't dug anything up.

I will keep looking but perhaps he is worth contacting, judging from the posts he made + the amount of people that knew him , he was definitely one of the most knowledgeable Ledy guys to come out of Mexico.

Failing that - try the usual suspects, Luis , Cristian etc

Thought this might help, bumped an old topic over on RS - http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=4057884&page=0&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1#Post4057884

See what happens, to be honest I searched for a good 20 minutes on various factory discussion posts and most are either about Kenner or Palitoy so its possible no-one has ever really given much info out or asked about the Ledy one.

I am actually quite excited to see what turns up, be cool if there was a museum over there or something. I for one would be willing to make the pilgrimage! Leicester just don't do it for me lol!

If you google map search this - sor juana ines de la cruz no 33 tlalnepantla Edo de Mexico

Then you can get to to 22 which is the Fiesta Inn, there is also a street view .. still looking now

Well I am currently looking at 31 and 35, what would appear to be 33 is a smallish building.

It doesn't have a number on it but the opposite house is 34 so I am guessing its that one.

Picture coming up
