Blog Update #12 (22/11/2018)

Palitoy Factory Luke Jedi Overstock…

A part of my Luke Jedi focus this year has been to work on the preservation and display of the pieces that I already have. This display piece idea has been a long time in the making…

It’s a display case of 8 (mint & unused) Palitoy factory overstock Luke Jedi figures and accessories. These figures were made by the vendor Smile in the Far East and have the full “Hong Kong” COO stamp on the boot and come with the blue sabre. They are part of a huge quantity of Palitoy overstock that made its way to Australia after the Star Wars toy line died down in the 80s.

These are from the same “loose” stock that Palitoy would have used to card-up both Palitoy 65-B and 65-C cardbacks locally in Coalville, UK and also package earlier Luke Jedi Palitoy Baggies that had the blue sabre inside.

A special thank you goes to Nicholas Kazonis for supplying me with 6 mint overstock figures, including a special one with an unpainted hand.

If you have time, you should read Nicholas’s story below on how he got the overstock figures… 1000s of them!

The majority of the overstock weapons in the display and the two complete Luke Jedi figures on the first step come from Dan’s warehouse find in Australia, which I bought from him around 2009 – his post is still on Rebel Scum:

Superdan's Palitoy Find in Australia

I wanted a focal point for this collection, so I invested in a lovely display case and steps from GW Acrylic and Iain’s Display Accessories was kind enough to support my project and supply me with another load of Palitoy Stands.

I am hoping to buy an acrylic Palitoy embossed sign to replace the little temporary cardboard one I have made and I need to source one more overstock blue sabre to make up number 8 on the bottom.

From Nicholas... "Palitoy factory Overstock "

Ok Craig the story goes like this, they originally came from the Palitoy factory in the mid to late 80's before that obviously they came from the Smile factory in HK. Someone that was working at Palitoy bought bucket loads of carded, baggie, loose figures and weapons as the sales plummeted. A mate here in Sydney bought a large amount of these and were sent to him via comet Miniatures (Tee Jays models) in London in the late 80's early 90's.

I was lucky enough to buy some of the uncirculated loose x-wings, Jedis, Madines, 4-loms, various baggie figures, carded Tri logo figures and weapons. My mate also bought many more vintage Star Wars from Japan i.e. Poppy, Takara and Tsukuda. He is a legend here and has been in the game for over 40 years. I try to sell the best examples I have available to all collectors at a very reasonable price. I have loads of jedis x wings and Madine's that have chips and paint marks from being in storage loosely in boxes for so many years.

MTFBWY Kind regards, Nicholas Kazonis
