Put me down for a couple of MOCs if you find the treasure. Good luck!

After reading a news artical i believe in 2015 about this existing i always thought if excavated this could be so exciting. Has anyone ever seen the documentary about the Atari land fill they excavated a couple of years ago and they found boxes of games. The boxes where screwed but the cartridges in perfect condition.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Filming this would knock Time Team into a cocked hat ( sorry Baldrick!)

Would make a great documentary for SW collecting fans and Palitoy fans alike.

This will be very interesting. My sister lives in Leicester and a year or two back i had a very interesting talk with a friend of my sister. I was introduced to the grandmother of her friend who just so happened to work at Palitoy back in the day and she rememberd the Star Wars years. She actually remembers carding figures from the first SW line and said about how much she hated Greedos card!! Id often thought that some of the first releases were carded in house and she proved me right. I actually showed her photos of some of my figures at the time and she remembers the first line very well, and that once Empire hit it went into overdrive :) She actually used to buy for relatives who didnt want to wait for them to hit the shops and having to hunt different shops for sold out figures.

I will say that they need to find some of the real, old school collectors that have been collecting from day one. Id love to see the likes of John Ford come back ibto the fold , but thats probably unlikely.

Laurence and Dave Tree need to be in on this. Laurences digging has brought some interesting things to light and shown more history of Palitoy in general.

I firmly beleive that there is so much more to be unearthed ( bad pun) about the Palitoy SW line and that there are so many things we dont yet know.

Will be a fun atory to follow.
