Hi Folks,

I'd mentioned in another thread that I was going to post some pics of an AT-ST box I'd like your thoughts on, and thought it would be better served in it's own thread, so here it is.

A firend of mine has a little collectors shop, and has had this AT-ST box sat on his shelf for an age, it's always been a talking point for no other reason than it's amazing condition. one day I asked if I could have a look at it, that's when it became a little odd. The box has alsorts of languages on it and is unlike anything I've seen before, it's kind of like a Tri-Logo, but not in the conventional sense.

I apologise for the slightly blurry photo's, the shop is in the underground vaults of the local market, and the lighting isn't great Rolling Eyes

BOTTOM

As you can see, the front and side 1 have English ROTJ logos and the back and side 2 have French ROTJ logos.
The top is in Enhlish also and all though blurry, the small print mention General Mills and Palitoy in Leicster. The bottom is in french and mentions both Miro-Meccano an Clipper Benelux. The large print below the small print says 'PRINTED IN FRANCE'.

Close up of the small print on the English front, this is German I think:

Close up of the small print on the French side, I know it's blurry but hopefully you cab make out the Miro-Meccano and Clipper Benelux bits:

unsure Very interesting Alex. I don't believe I've seen one like that before. Is that the remains of a Tesco price label?

Not really sure, I'll have to check next time I'm in, to be honest, never even noticed that.

Cheers Doc, it's a perfect match..... and my plan to see if people were still checking the 'project outside the box' thread has worked.... Honest Wink

Where these found all over Europe, this one almost certainly came from England?
