PostSubject: Some interesting Palitoy stuff?   Some interesting Palitoy stuff? I_icon_minitimeFri Mar 15, 2013 5:29 pm

Hi Folks,

Was wondering if anyone can shed any light on some bits. I've had a good day today, a couple of weeks ago I decided to part with my entire modern Star Wars collection, it's somethng I started many years ago and gave up on a couple of years back with all the new Clone Wars crap. I offered first dibs to a close friend who mainly collects modern stuff and today he popped round (he lives quite far away) and took a few bits, which earned me a tidy little sum my first Blue Snaggletooth Very Happy
He also brought his vintage cardback collection from his childhood collection which I've been hankering to see for a while. He was kind enough to live them with me to scan and archive and also to ask you guys for some help.
It's important to know that all his cardback are from his childhood collection which he, and his family bought all in Britain. Thankfully in many cases he has several of each figure which gives a wide spectrum as no two are the same. I'm aware that Palitoy used Kenner cards with stickers on, but it was suprising to see just how many Kenner cards were present (when I've sorted them fully I'll post a list of all the cardbacks).
For now though here's a couple of interesting things that stood out.

Some interesting Palitoy stuff? Klaatu10

Is this normal? There is no question that this figure was bought in England, so why the Clipper sticker?

Next is a Palitoy competition sheet. My mate seems to think that this may have come with something he bought, he has a Palitoy cardboar Death Star and thought it may have been with that but wasn't sure, do any of you guys know where this came from?

Finally this, it's some random transfer sheet, God knows where or what it came from, but if you have any idea's, your thought will be glady excepted.

Hi Alex, those transfer sheets were widely available in the UK, & there are other versions. Back in the day I remember buying them in my local post office (Unused sets are readily available on ebay).

I don't remember how the painting competition leaflet was distributed, but it certainly would'nt have come with the Palitoy Death Star.

i got two unopen ewok action transfer sets in my collection they were sold all over europe and i keep them in my collection because its written in swedish on them "skilj isar gnugga lyft upp" means "separate rub-down peel off"

about the clipper cardback: i think england and sweden was the 2 last countrys in the world where the kids loved star wars figures in the 80`s so kenner/palitoy/playmix bought up overstock figures from all over europe to sell

I'm kind of thinking along them lines now, I had a lot of Star Wars vehicles and playsets when I was young and I don't remember this at all, me and my brother have always been very artistic and I'm confident that if my parents had have ever come across this they would have enetered us into it, Jesus, my dad would do out for a freeby, we had like 10 free Rncor keepers!

Which is a good point? where the hell did the free Rancor Keeperes come from in England???? unsure

Was it a breakfast cereal offer?

Cheers bud, I did find this pic at some point, but the resolution was poor, and I couldn't quite make out the print. Any idea's where it came from though, I don't know why, but for some reason I'm sure we got some free figures from cereal boxes.
It may just be my mind being stupid! Can't think why, I've never done anything to screw it up? smoke drinking :bong: :I am stupid:

,

lol!

I'm sure I've also seen this add in a magazine. As to whether the figure was available through a promo offer on cereal packets, I really don't know. Perhaps Paul or Wouter can shed some light?

Paul is Mr. Palitoy right? I'll have to drop him a line.

The Rancor Kepper leaflet thing, does also say, 'free Rancor Keeper with ever six figures' which implies proof of purchases requirements, but there is no Rancor Keeper card offer.

My mind still screams cereal box! and surely there is no reason to question my mind? smoke drinking :bong: :I am stupid: ....... Very Happy

The Paul I was referring to is Artoo-Detour, but Mr Palitoy may well have the answer. Very Happy

The rancor keeper offer was advertised in comics like ROTJ and the leaflets were handed out in toy shops.

Not sure about the painting comp, I have the same leaflet in my collecetuon though.

The transfer set could be brought from stationary stores like Partners, which is where I had my from along with the pencil toppers.

The ROTJ Painting Competition Form was definitely available as a pick up in stores.

Here's a ROTJ Painting Competition flyer which advertised the competition:

http://theswca.com/images-speci/harper/palitoy-art-paintingcontest.html

They're both really cool ads/promos Cool



RE: The Rancor Keeper offer was just a send-in following the cutting out of 6 nameplates from MOCs.

Here's my ad for the Emperor - the exact same offer:

The Erdington, Birmingham UK address I believe is the address they used for all their promo correspondance, rather then the Coalville, Leicester address which was the factory.


Jason I hope you'll chime in too Cool Was wondering if you had some more info on this Erdington address?

Great thread GK, the clippers may have been stickers at Palitoy before being sent over to holland??

I've seen the Rancor and I have the emperor one in a magazine but I'm wondering about the Ackbar, I have a Palitoy mailer but haven't come across the offer or any cards with offers on :scratch:

Was the colouring competition advert only in comics/magazines or was it available as a flyer like the Rankor keeper and Emperor figures?
