My trademark blog content is photos with figures set up to replicate the photos on the box. It's great fun (especially with toys like the AT-AT that have over a dozen figures in the box pictures) and readers do seem to get a kick out of it :mrgreen:

Cheers

Nice, yes you ahve some great pictures with display of figures 8)

Just 'plugging a gap', so to speak. My apologies for not posting this sooner. I should have done so ages ago, but better late than never, hopefully!

Here's my Kenner Death Star. The box isn't terrible, but could also be quite a bit better. I'm not complaining though as I'm just happy to have one :-). The set itself is complete, but I don't have any decent photos of all the loose pieces together, and none at all of it set up. Kudos to dienstuhr then for his excellent photo (and website), which shows the set off properly. I'll try to compensate for my shortcomings by including a sneaky pic of (part of) the Dianoga! :lol:

The 1970's at their best! :lol:

I love the fact that both Kenner and Palitoy felt it necessary to show kids playing with the toys on their early Star Wars boxes... you know, just in case any kids out there didn't realise what they were or hadn't a clue what to do with them! :roll:

:lol:

Great to see you keep the old thread alive :D Wow that box is a beauty and that Dianoga is so cool, one of 2 boxes I am still missing. I also hope I will get one next year in my collection. Thanks mate for sharing the pictures with the rest of us :wink: and even as the kids look funny at those old boxes :lol: then I can only say it was a fucking good time this old days :lol:

Looks reslly cool this toy, although a bit before my time I would still love one boixed some day. Some great examples, thanks for posting everyone.

Thank you. The plastic is still nice and white, but the sticker is a little discoloured. It's quite tough to find a Palitoy 3-legged R2 with a pearly white sticker though, so I'm happy enough with this one for now :-)

It’s a hell of a lot better than my Kenner one!
