A complete list of Palitoy Star Wars products 1978 - 1983?

Postby Simply Sci-fi » Wed Jun 07, 2017 2:17 pm

This is the final version of the list of Palitoy products that I’ve been working on. It will be included as an appendix in my upcoming book “The Star Wars Phenomenon in Britain.”

I decided not to include details of the action figure backing cards and to instead simply mention which wave the figures were part of. All comments are welcome.

The book is being edited at the publishers and preview copies are being sent out for review. Exciting times.

I wish I had the opportunity to write a Palitoy wiki. I've of course featured Palitoy very strongly in the book but I've had to make room for lots of other stuff too.

Progress on the book is slow but steady. At the moment there's no idea of when it will be released. I'll keep everyone posted.

Excellent list Craig, very comprehensive and a really useful summary of what's out there.

i see you're including Bilogo but not Trilogo items, are you not going to mention things like the Palitoy Shuttle?

There were also Palitoy ESB and ROTJ Play-doh sets (although the ROTJ is more Trilogo than Palitoy).

The only other comment is that I don't think the 12" Fett ever came in a Palitoy box, but there are examples with a Palitoy sticker on a Kenner box.

I'm looking forward to seeing the book!

Cheers,

Andy
Looking for Palitoy 12 back Jawa and Empire carded Dengar, Leia Hoth, and Snowtrooper. Damaged cards or reseals OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

Thanks for the comments. The book only covers the time up to the end of 1983. I'm not aware of any Trilogo items in '83 but I'm willing to bow to greater knowledge.

I'm not aware of Palitoy branded play-doh for ESB or ROTJ. Also the model kits and Craft Master sets too don't seem to have ever come out Palitoy branded, even though there are trade catalogue photographs.

I would love to be able to write a follow-up book telling the story of Star Wars from 1984 to today. One battle at a time though!

Absolutely freaking awesome stuff. I have waited a long time for someone to produce a book that solely focus on UK PALITOY and nothing else. Very well done sir. Really looking forward to purchasing a copy. The amount of info and books out there on Kenner USA and other countries products. A UK PALITOY book like this is well overdue.

Thanks. As I said, there's a lot of stuff about Palitoy Star Wars in the book, but I've had to make room for a hell of a lot of other information. Even so, I'm sure it'll blow most fan's socks off.

Cheers Craig, I missed the bit about covering the period to 83 only hence no Trilogo.

There is definitely an ESB Palitoy Play-doh...

IMG_0885.JPG


There's also a ROTJ Jabba set but it hasn't got the Palitoy logo, and it's in multi lingual packaging. I don't know whether it was released in 83 or later.

I've never heard of the ESB figurines or paint by numbers other than in the catalogue, it's fair to say they almost certainly don't exist.

The model kits were released under the Airfix and Denys Fisher brands, again I'm almost certain they were never in a Palitoy packaging.

Great stuff Craig

Can't remember if this was discussed before but Palitoy didn't produce the die cast third wave, they were all Kenner in the UK.

You also have Yoda hand puppet twice in the list - a minor point :)

- edit, I see that you've put that on the 1982 list so just a case of a missing 'Kenner' than an error. Ignore me :)

I thought that the vader tie I have was a later one as mine has the bounty hunters logo on it. Just what was the point of that ? Some mailaway scheme that never happened? I am aware of the cut out the names thing but I have a few boxed items that have the fett helmet and hunter logo on them. The bigger the item the more that were on it.

Thanks for the pic and the information. I couldn't remember if I'd seen a Palitoy Play-doh for ESB.

It was just a Palitoy promotion that didn't go anywhere. Good for collectors today, otherwise there would be tons of boxes with those symbols cut out!
