PostSubject: Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool   Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool I_icon_minitimeWed Apr 18, 2012 11:18 am

Was sorting through some of my vintage adverts today and thought I'd share a few bizarre and cool ones here.



UK. Maybe the only time you'll get to see C3PO holding a gun and R2 drawing a sketch??
Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool Look_i10




French. Floating heads in space and glowing Millenium Falcon! Aciiiidd!!
Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool Pif_6110





French. I think this one was also used by Clipper and Germany.
I love the zombie hand and the creepy tentacles grabbing Vader.
Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool Tvtr_s10





USA. Luke in his little Doctor Who car Laughing
Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool Spider15





USA. Bedding and toothbrush.
Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool Creepy11






France. The famous Pif Saynettes. This one translates:
"R2D2 was quicker. He warned the rebel soldiers by code. But on the horizon..."

Denmark. Next to all the funny toys some figures and even a moc!
Vintage Star Wars adverts - the bizarre and the cool Anders10






USA. Cool MPC model kit.

USA. Cool digital watch.

I always wanted that model kit. Forgot all about it. Not really doing the SW thing right now but may have to see if I can hunt one down.

Great and fun set of advertisements.

I like the Meccano add, poor Greedo and Snaggletooth being captured by a Hoth patrol.

What were they doing there in the first place? It's too cold for them out there. Very Happy

Another Saynette, C3PO looks completely drunk and Luke looks like he's inserting his saber right up Greedo's backside!

Razz

Another Meccano Pif Saynette.

I know full well that the Meccano ad team were allowed licence to pretty much do as they pleased with their adverts ... but what in the name of sanity is going on here??

#1 Ben is taken out in combat. Luke is the only one left to save them. (had to look this one up for a bit of help Embarassed )

#2 C3PO and R2D2 free the beautiful Princess Leia. But the demon Darth Vader is not far away!

Great ads Bruce, love R2 and 3PO in their backpacks Laughing

Do you know the date and what Marvel issues these are?
Would love to add them to this thread in the oddball section: TIG Oddball Resource - ADVERTS

Cheers Bruce. Added those to the advert section. I Like the Halloween ad - LOL at Chewie's mask, wig and teeth !! The Heroes World ads are always fun.

Forbidden Planet welcomes to their London store Prowse and Daniels, 1980.
The ad mentions they hope to receive a visit from one of the 'American stars'.
Wonder if one of the American actors actually turned up on either of those two days  thinking Or just some blag to get more people to go.

UK members might remember that Dave Prowse played 'Green Cross Man' in the late 70s early 80s TV ad campaigns for road safety "The Green Cross Code".

Got hold of some UK comics today and found this little gem Smile
