Woolworths 8 Pack research data.
When the research was first undertaken a search for all the packs available on all platforms that could be thought of to create a population report was conducted in order to complete a comprehensive comparison.
The four forums, Star Wars Forum UK, Rebel Scum, The Imperial Gunnery & Tantive XI where thoroughly searched. Vectis past sales, eBay, Worthpoint for past eBay sales and the SWCA were also searched. Every Facebook Group thought of including the pages of Nine Holy Grails, CAS, The Vintage Rebellion, Farthest From as well as reaching out to collectors was also searched to create the population.
The total population of Woolworth’s packs that was documented excluding the items of 2 collectors totalled 47.
The documented quantity of Palitoy created packs totalled 33 and the documented quantity of Suspect packs totalled 14.
The Palitoy packs were observed in all nature of states, i.e. empty bag’s, moc up displays, opened or sealed. The breakdown of the packs are, 13 empty bags, 9 open packs, 3 sealed, 1 resealed, 4 were duplicated & 3 sealed packs were observed on RS during the Billy Boy era. For this reason the RS packs have been documented but excluded from any analysis. There are two open bags on RS that have been included into the data of 9 open packs.
The total of Palitoy packs with contents for comparison purposes is 13. The 13 packs consist of the 9 open, 3 sealed and 1 resealed for comparison.
The 14 Suspect packs are all sealed. There is one item that is duplicated twice, so excluding this item gives us a total observed sample of 12 packs for comparison purposes.
