Great work. I would personally make a version with Darth Vader as the main image on the display, if you want to produce a “what if” from Palitoy. People could choose the Fett or Vader or both of them.

It’s amazing that Boba Fett was barely mentioned in the publicity leading up to The Empire Strikes Back and was not even included in the film poster. Lando and the Tauntaun were introduced to the media but not Boba Fett. If not for the special offer from Palitoy, Fett would have been just one of a hundred minor characters in the film.

Boba Fett has only become widely popular in the last decade or so and back in 1980 I doubt if he would have been selected as fronting the product line. I can imagine a display piece such as yours advertising the Bounty Hunter promotion with a tray to hold the booklets that were produced. A similar item was pictured in the ROTJ Palitoy competition but I have never seen one in the flesh (pic below).

Fantastic looking display, nice one Mark. I'm not sure the raised viewfinder would have survived long in a toy shop environment though!
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.

How have I only just discovered this thread, I need to get out more!
Or is it the other way around? :?
I wasn't a member on here back then as I resided on rebelscum.

Truly sensational work Mark, did you ever get around to producing these in a limited run?

This isn't true at all, every boy I knew at school thought Fett was the coolest and I played for hours with my 12" Fett in the early 80s.
Having said that though, I also played with Leia

:wink:

Looking for any Palitoy logo esp. 30, 41 and 45a.
Also looking for any 20back droids and cantina aliens on any cardback.
