One of my dream jobs would not have been a porn star, a racing driver or even a pilot. No, it would have been head designer in Palitoy's design department, responsible for packaging design and illustration, store displays and promotional items.
As you know, Palitoy produced very little in the way of display merchandise, I'm still to find one of those bloody ESB logo hangers! So in this thread what I want to to is create some point of sale items, packaging variations and even playsets that were never produced but retain that vintage feel.
I'll start with this cardboard 'counter' display for Palitoy's ESB range, featuring the cool Fett illustration from the Capture Log and the ESB toy logo. Also featuring the Palitoy line 'The toys from the film are here'.
I can imagine if this had have been produced back in the 80's, it would have sat where the till is in the shop, or possibly in the window display. And if they were availble, finding one today with the antenna still intact would be a rarity!
I'll be adding new designs and mock ups as I finish them, along with some of Palitoys other lines such as Action Man and Action Force, and some Kenner, Mattel and Mego pieces
