Jez, your correct on the two editions of the Cinema Brochure buddy.
I am not sure which edition it is and couldn't see anything to indicate it was a second issue / reprint so I am thinking it may be a first issue. That said I am totally unsure so if you know how to tell then let me know pal.


Laurence, the rarest (and imho the best!) is the British version. If you bought it off Ebay UK there might be a chance you have this version. Look at the page with all the cast/credits and at the bottom you'll see a reference to ordering more copies. If this is a UK address and the amount is in £ rather than $ then you have the UK version.


I assume this is then a reprint / second issue Max as the brochure has both mailing addresses with 75p to pay to the UK mailing address & $1.50 for the US address.
Is this correct buddy?

That is indeed the UK version, sorry I didn't have mine in hand to see that it also mentioned dollars too! Not a second edition or a reprint, that is the bonafide UK version.

So pleased to have picked up this fella; to be honest I never thought I was likely to get one as there aren't too many 45a Palitoy AT-AT Drivers around... He may not be a stunner but I am delighted with him.

Some great looking minty figures you have there and lobe the Buck Rogers set of figures as well. Has that Black Hole robot been painted as I thought it only came in red?
