Apologies if this has been covered before but recently I bought a Comic I had never heard off just to have a flick through it, it was a StarLord from 03/06/78
To my absolute joy it had an advertisement for Star Wars Figures I had never seen before, so since them I have tracked down several more. They just look fantastic, it seems to me the art of advertising from back them was so much better, much like the amazing covers on magazines like Crash Magazine,of the eighties.
I even found an old advert for a Raleigh Grifter, magazines like Battle,Victor,StarLord, Battle Action Force all ran advertisements for various toys which bring so many great memories flooding back.
I just thought I would share a few I have found, I have laminated some so I can put them easily on a wall or at the back of a display cabinet. I plan on framing some of the better ones.

When I was ten I drooled over Star Wars Toys, I'm now 45 and doing the same thing
