Finally added a piece I've been tracking down for ages and always eluded me. A quick visit into old Brighton town to meet up with a fellow collector in the lanes scored me this...

Think this is the Palitoy release as the box is much longer than any other mailer I've seen... can anyone confirm and if the Kenner leaflet was part too.

I think so. I certainly remember getting a leaflet with mine and I've never seen a picture of a Palitoy example.

I'm always hoping to hear better evidence than something part-based on my memories of being seven years old, tho!

Allow me to lower the tone of the thread with this old toot.

'Chart Wars' from Ronco - As Seen On TV. I actually remember seeing it on TV and being slightly excited by it, such was my illness for Star Wars. Not excited enough to buy it - I'm not stupid. Well, not until last week anyway!

If anyone has happened upon the advert in amongst off-air recordings online, etc and knows where I can see it, I'd be their best friend.

Oh my god that's so awful I love it! :lol:

Lovely Palitoy mailer, Mark. Would like that one myself and if I'm being choosy, with an address label on it :D

Great Trilogo, Grant. Wonderful ESB colours on a Trilogo card.

Thanks for sharing. As I said on FB, really wish I'd mentioned this album in my book. There was huge spike in interest in Star Wars in Britain 1982 and Chart Wars was part of it. The Lucasfilm marketing reverted back to the Star Wars logo and so did this parody!

That die cast Slave 1 is a bit special.

Got a few pieces from the NEC, too.
Chuffed to find this Leia with original cape. Gave her a quick wash.

My mate got a few nice pieces as well.

Looks like the NEC fair is good for vintage, what are the prices like?
