This has been posted on a french website. Not sure you know these pics as they were made by French dealers in 78 while touring in NYC..pics that emerged recently. One is a 1:1 Darth Vador with a strange apparel. If translation is needed please let me know. Not sure if this was the right place to post...

See hereunder the link:

Thanks for the share, Alex. What a great article showing the relationship between two giants of retail.

Here in France, Galeries Lafayette is a long-established department store. So back in '79 they send some employees over to Macey's New York on a mission to learn and document how their cousins across the Atlantic operate a big store - in the hope of improving their own store back in France.

Fantastic that GF published those photos of Star Wars goodies from their archives cheers
