So something I wanted to share with u guys that brought me lots of joy and hopefully bring some information to me . Well during end of last summer I required these 2 full boxes of Dixies cups . I saw em for sale and decided to Do some research into what the cups looked like inside, with bright cool colours and Crazy mad artwork with so much vintage Star Wars all over them ,I just had to get me some so I brought em!
So These 2 boxes are from the of A New Hope be released i assume and I set about unpacking them ,But quickly noticed that both boxes on one end had come undone. One actually was hanging on for dear life and other just simply holding together from just where time had stayed in place over the years .
I decided to take all the cups out of one box in the order they were stacked in and to lay em all out. I spent a couple of hours just gazing over em and reading each ones description of the character pictured on front. I can't stress enough to those who haven't seen em of how super cool these are.
They have so much going on for such a small item I just love em. Next I decided to set them all out in groups /sets ,to see how many came inside of each picture /character or scene . I had read and assumed that it would contain a few sets but Interestingly I only managed one set and had as less as 2-3 of one character and up to 9-10 of others. I then turned to the second box and did the same to that. This had a few more of some and less then others , quickly proving to me that there was no set order when it came to packing these in the factory. I managed to make up 4 sets between the 2 boxes. Also of note was the promotional leaflet that comes inside these with some kitchen items you can send off for.
Enjoyed these so much I quickly went on the hunt for more examples of the 2 other films .
I manged to pick up 2 X boxes of ESB ones both sealed and will look out for more ESB and ROTJ when I see them come up at good price. So if any of u guys have these in your collection and shed any light on the history of these or about the number of sets in side ( not opened the ESB ) I would be grateful and very much interested!
