Lili Ledy Factory - Page 2 Ledy

From what I can make out, this is 33 and is the address that appears on the back of the Ledy figures, however, this might well have been an office/mailing promotions building etc and NOT the address of the factory.

If it was a big place (I am sure it was) then it wouldn't be just one house number, it would be 33-43 etc

No I don't think so, I think the buildings look like they are 30 + year old for sure and as I said the address on the back of the carded figures does not indicate the location of the factory, the address on the back of the Palitoy cards for consumers for example was not the factory but another place that dealt with the paperwork etc.

I would say we are looking at a Ledy building , just not the factory.

Impressive detective work guys. We at least know the location of one Ledy building. Now we need to have a TIG outing and visit.

The only picture I seem to remember was of a street vendor or something in Mexico selling overstock parts. I'll see if I can dig that one up somewhere.

Didn't someone on RS post a pix of it one time? Besides Shanes thread, I think I remember someone else asking about it and a photo was posted in it. With the search screwy on there, I couldn't find it, but it was posted in the last 2 years if I remember right.

I dug up loads of factory / ledy threads Chris but no joy for a picture or discussion on the actual Ledy site.

John - Thanks for the address from the cardback, I enjoyed searching out the place, I hope we can get the actual factory address and that is mapped as well, its funny it was only this morning I was playing about with google maps !

Had no idea by the end of the day I might have identified a Ledy building lol

Didn't John A at Rebel Scum post a picture of the Ledy factory a few years back? I seem to remember he had photos of the factory.

From memory, someone at RS asked a similar question about the various factories, and how there were absolutely no photos of the Macau or Hong Kong factories (not even addresses of them) but there were a handful of photos of the Ledy factory.

When I get home tonight from work I'll check to see if I saved any of the photos or not. Hopefully I saved something!

If not, someone might have to check through ALL of John A's posts in order to find it.... Shocked

Oh, believe me. Going through 11000 posts of Johns wasn't fun. I made it to April '07 so far and haven't found nothing yet.

There were some Ledy factory pictures used during a panel at C3 but neither John or anyone else I have asked has seen them since or has copies so I fear this one might be a bit of a dead end guys,
I guess it'll have to be a 2010 TIG outing to Mexico to go and ask people in person lol

At least we can take our own pictures then Very Happy haha
