Well this is not next door for some of you Laughing but maybe worth indicating...(I have not seen any similar post so far on TIG)

Le Musée des arts décoratifs in Paris (FR) is proposing an exhibit on vintage Star Wars toys (and recent as well)

http://www.lesartsdecoratifs.fr/francais/accueil-292/une-486/francais/arts-decoratifs/expositions-23/actuellement/dans-la-galerie-des-jouets/les-jouets-star-wars/
http://www.lesartsdecoratifs.fr/francais/arts-decoratifs/expositions-23/actuellement/dans-la-galerie-des-jouets/les-jouets-star-wars/diaporama-3097

They also be selling a specific poster during the exhibit: "Les Jouets" means "Toys" in French

Love the poster, Alex. I'm definitely going to go cheers It's been reported and advertised in a lot of magazines and online here. We were planning a trip 'up north' for the New Year anyway, so it's great they're letting the exhibition have a long run.

I am going to Paris next week. I will take the opportunity to go to the exhibit. Very Happy
I am planning to buy as well a poster for me. For those who can not attend and wish a poster (not sure about the price though). I certainly can buy a few of them for TIG members meeting . You just need to PM me.

firstly sorry as I have been out the TIG circuit lately for various reasons, nothing bad but time consuming. hope I will be able to contribute again more actively in future. king

I have been in Paris last week. I went to the Exhibit. Though it is rather small, its quite well done. Not an ton of things but all Meccano 12back cards, some prototypes, the unproduced 12inch outfits for Leia, Han solo and Luke. I wish I could have made pictures but it was forbidden...

The most impressive piece for me was this Meccano display box containing free give aways figures (a bunch of them, including a Boba Fett!) that kids could pick up when purchasing any vehicle! Its featured in the exhibit catalog that I purchased, I am planning to scan that specific page to place it here but wonder if this might not be (c) infrigment study ....moderators might know.

All in all a nice exhibit that was rather for the profane than for real collectors.

Anyone else on this forum went?

Ha, i was there this weekend aswell.
Like you say, it was small but he had some impressive items.
Rocket Fett, pedal speederbike from contest with display stand, Canadian 12 figure pack, meccano VC Jawa..

I think the exihibition does not really apply to the General public as they won't see how much special items where displayed and many items could only be appreciated by vintage collectors as only they know how special and rare they are.

Yes pictures where not allowed, but when the guard turned his head, i quickly snapped this shot....
