Toltoys - country of origin Australia

It is worth noting that all Toltoys mailers came with palitoy baggies as I believe Palitoy supplied them for these offers & as with the palitoy one they came simply in a box with the baggie, no paperwork at all.

Image

4-Lom NOTE that the 4-Lom was issued in a Kenner logo baggie unlike all other TT mailers, it is speculated that this is due to production of TT's baggies (same style used by palitoy) had not started at the time this offer was available & they were supplied Kenner baggies for the first available mail away offer they ran.

Image

Admiral Ackbar Palitoy-b baggie

Nien Nunb - photo courtesy of Mike - please NOTE that NN was available with 2 font styled mailers, large font as shown & also a smaller font version see below photo with them laid side by side for comparison - Palitoy-a

Survival Kit Boxes shown with Toltoys sticker, would have had palitoy baggies in them

List of cardback offers courtesy of Robert Heron -

41-A with the survival kit offer
41-D with the 4-LOM offer
45-A with the display arena offer
47-A with the 4-LOM offer
65-B with the Nien Nunb offer (in both 'Revenge' and 'Return' labels on the front)

Other info as to where the Ackbar offer came in also courtesy of Robert Heron -

Seems he was never offered on a cardback & this is the way it was found - It was advertised on ice block wrappers by the company Paul's (in conjunction with Toltoys), and never advertised on any card back, see below photos -

Kenner - country of origin U.S

America had more mail away offers than any other country & not just single figure mailers, lots more great photos & information on the other offers as well as the single figure mailers can be found on Shawn K's great website here, well worth a look as there is some very interesting infomation on all things mail away -

Bobba Fett - Sealed mailer exciting discovery, first ever sealed fett mailer to have surface, would have been 2, sadly the seller opened one to show the contents :o what a sad loss, but hey at least there is still a sealed example out there :) PHOTO COURTESY OF ROBBIEZOMBBIE

Image

Bossk - I always thought it was rather odd that this ESB issued figure was put out in a SW-a first issue white text baggie, not sure what the reasoning behind this was TBH EDIT (26/1/15) : It has not been confirmed beyond a shadow of doubt that the Bossk mailer has also turned up with both the ESB-a & ESB-c baggie, confirmed from sealed examples opened for grading - now that is odd! as ALL other know single figure mailers came with the same bag type throughout its short lifespan.

& a photo I found on an auction site with them all laid out nicely together which I figured would make a nice addition.

POCH/PBP SPANISH ISSUED MAILERS

Right folks, all I can say about the PBP offers is that we do not have a lot to go on to date, thats actually a bit of an understatements as it goes, we have 2 craps of paper to show what was offered & no actual mailer images, we do not know if they were ever sent in baggies let alone mailer boxes like the other we are accustomed to.

These are the 2 known flyers in question which depict 5 figure, it is not even clear at this time if indeed all 5 figures were offered, but I can confirm the Nien Numb was & some collectors in Spain got those sent to them, it's speculated they may well have just been sent out in a padded envelope as loose figures,sadly as said nothing can be confirmed 100%

Please do reach out to me if you know of anything about the PBP mail away offers as it's all a bit of a mystery for now.

Star Wars Issued Brown box early issue Multi-Packs - this is going to be a long haul & an on going project trying to compile as many as I can, this will be happening with the help of Andy_R & Pat O'Brien both from RS, so please be patient.

Multi packs (MP's) were issued by several companies in the U.S to provided a cheaper alternative to Carded figures & a way for folk to add multiple figures to there collections, these packs were available via post from retail stores Sears/J.C.Penny/Wards/Spiegel & Aldens with some companies only offering a few & others offering many, some packs were specific to just one outlet while other being available from multiple retailer, hence some having many issue numbers on them rather than just a single order reference number, they had from 2 to 16 figures in them which came in baggies with a small catalog showing other items from the toy line & were a perfect way for parents to give kids a lot of figures as a gift without breaking the bank, there are to date at least 85 known packs but I have heard that there may be as many as 98 (unconfirmed) with some others intended for release in the POTF line, though no example has ever surfaced & it is likely they never made it to the production stage, nowhere near as many of these pack exist as with MOC as the packaging was at the time not regarded as something of any value & was in most cases discarded as simply being a cardboard box :o

There are 3 eras of MP's Star Wars E.S.B & ROTJ, each era having different box types.

In this first section I plan to cover the early issue plain brown or white box early issued MP's, please note that although the number of MP's issued is one thing, confirmed remaining examples of some is still a matter of debate, with several still not having been found to date, bear this in mind when looking at the visual reference/photos available of them.

If you have a pack that is not shown in the guide below I would be most grateful if you could help out & provide photos of any you have so they can be added to the index.

White Creature packs were I think the first issued (not 100% if they came before the brown boxes or at the same time TBH)

Please note there were also red text versions of these packs available (no image available at the moment)

Great photo of a freshly opened pack, figures never removed COURTESY OF LandoSkiff (Dan) which I think makes for a great introductory photo for this section

Please note I am only including one of the available catalog numbers for simplicity, please refer to the photos of the numbers from other companies or cross check them in the fantastic Kellerman book

EDIT: - New addition 29/6/16 same pack as above but a bit of an oddity picked up recently, this pack has been printed incorrectly with an additional digit in the code, same as the above one (Sears 49-59417 - Jawa / Tusken Raider's X 2 - 3 pack) but has an additional number 4 in the code (factory typo 49-594147) first & only such code error I have seen, confirmed as the same pack as has been X-Rayed to confirm, PHOTO COURTESY OF WILLEM-JAN BOS

Please Note not all the baggies for this pack are correct, but its a work in progress putting them all together for this set.

NO EXAMPLE HAS EVER SURFACED TO DATE So with it being what I would regard as a bit of a grail pack as I as a lot have a huge soft spot for Jawa's, have managed to pickle this approximation of what it may look like, I have put all SW-b baggies into the set with a box that only has half the factory code on I got cheap ( the prefix part of the code is the same as this pack), I know it may well not be right, but I think its as close as we are ever likely to see unless a genuine pack surfaces, hell we have no idea what baggies would be in the pack bar that they would be SW era ones, it could be for all we know 3 VCJ's :o so please bear in mind this is NOT the actual pack, just an approximation of what it should be

ESB Issued Plain White Box MP's

As with the SW issued packs above, generally the baggies in all the packs were identical, this era covered a lot more packs & figure combinations than the previous ones due to more figures having been released & the success of the previous packs as store MP's, most were plain white boxes with just catalog numbers much like the SW issued ones above, but there were a small number released with line art of the included figures in Blue on the packet front, the line art packs are regarded as highly desirable & always command a huge premium, maybe one day eh!.

There are alternate spellings of "Fatigues" on the ESB 9 and 10-packs, and also light blue and dark blue print variants.

The misspelling of "Fatigues" as "Fatiques" was corrected but both packs can be found with either spelling.
This makes 3 variations for the 10 pack alone: dark blue print with "Q" spelling, dark blue print with "G" spelling, and light blue print with "G" spelling.

ROTJ ISSUED MULTI PACKS

Image

The most common of all the multipacks issued by the catalog distributors & still widely available for sale if you know where to look, some are readily available frequently, others are much tougher to track down.

They came with a huge verity of figures/figure combos with some figures making an appearance in several packs, with the toy line being so well established & its popularity huge, lots of these packs were produced, with a vast selection of figure in them with all 77 figures already being in production by the time these hit the catalogs.

They come with a large round red sticker depicting several charterers on it, including the very bright red cape bib fortuna pre production figure we are all accustomed to seeing, but never get the opportunity to own.

They came with a catalog folded over inside the box as the previous catalog multi packs did, just this time obliviously related to the ROTJ era & sporting its logo.

MAJOR HEADACHE & am totally confused now both the above packs are quite obviously different, in fact the only common denominator is the fact both come with darth vader & seem to oddly share the same Sears product code :? I have checked & cross checked the Kellerman guide & no mention of a second pack with the Hoth Stormtroopers is listed, so as of 27/9/15 you can regard this as another pack guys, really threw me out this has, as you can see they both share the same code, but one has an earlier issue ESB style white box, the other a ROTJ Red Sticker one - if anyone can clear this up & shed some light on this issue I would greatly appreciate your input.

Special Offer Items (vehicles & play sets)

Image

A lot of these special offer items if not all were issued to catalog stores like Sears & Wards (US/Canada) so they could offer something that was not readily available through the larger high street retailers.

There is a huge point of contention with many of the special offers, being did they come with carded figures or baggies?,for the sake of completeness I will include some offers here where little to nothing is known about them

This is an area of baggies which is a little bit of a mystery for some of the released items, many of the Canadian issued items came with MOC's rather than baggies but I am not 100% sure which ones did come with baggies, from my understanding to date only these few Canadian issued SO items have turned up with baggies, but can not be confirmed as having come with them as no sealed examples have been found & opened :o to confirm this one way or the other & after so many years it is highly unlikely this will ever happen, so please do not regard everything in this section of the guide as set in stone, rather speculation & assumption, it may simply be a case that some had baggies substituted for the tough to find GDE 12/20 back MOC's, but it is also quite probable that these 3 came with baggies -

GDE Bi-Logo

These came with all sorts of special offer stickers as you can see below -

Image

Sandcrawler with 2 Jawas (SW-a) photo courtesy of the Final Frontier more commonly found with 2 x GDE 20 back MOC's

Image

Dewback with stormtrooper - confirmed with baggie rather than MOC, not saying that it was not also issued with a MOC at some point though, these GDE special offers are a bit of a minefield TBH

Image

Land of the Jawas now confirmed to be with a Jawa baggie not a GDE MOC PHOTO COURTESY OF THE FINAL FRONTIER - may also have been available with a GDE 20 back but I can not confirm this to date

Image

Land of the Jawas ultra rare with a yoda figure, though as it is the world's only known example, its likely we will never know if this came with a baggie or a GDE MOC PHOTO COURTESY OF THE FINAL FRONTIER

Image


Kenner USA

The Kenner issued SO items came with large yellow stickers usually in one of the corners on the box fronts like the one at the top of the post, they sported photos of the figures that were included in vehicle/play sets & have become a very iconic & sought after item, many of them are hard to obtain with some of the mini rigs near impossible, due to very small numbers of them having survived & sadly I do not have images for 2 of them yet (Cap-2 & INT-4) - please do get in touch if you have photos available & they will be added.

Image

ESB Action Display Stand - never actually issued, but salesman samples & toy fair mock ups have been discovered though extremely rare, the backing card & stand remained the same, presumably to be updated when released with an ESB scene, the only difference from the first issue one was the name tag stickers, but it was intended to be issued as a special offer item (presumably?) due to the inclusion of 6 baggied figure (Bossk/FX-7/Luke Bespin?Leia Bespin/Lando Calrissian & Hoth trooper), examples have been found with ESB-c baggies, but 2 sets surfaced with SW-a baggies, making these SW-a baggies some of the rarest & most desirable baggie know to exist (bar the Bossk which was issued in a single figure mail away & is quite common) - PHOTO FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

Image

Darth Vader Collector's Case, bounty hunter pack including IG88/Bossk & Boba Fett & confirmed to be the sole way to find the very rare & highly desirable ESB-b baggies, though to Date I have only ever seen two of the 3 figures in this baggie type with IG88 never having to my understanding shown up & could in fact be in an ESB-e baggie (unconfirmed) PHOTO COURTESY OF MR KENNER

Image

Close up of special offer -

Image

& now 12/10/15 a fantastic conformation of the baggies & also a conformation they were now always as previously thought to be ESB-b's but also in some cases ESB-a's, this one as you can see shows both Fett & IG88 in ESB-b baggies, but the Bossk is an ESB-a bag, though Bossk has also been found several times in the very rare & pack specific ESB-b baggie, which confirms (finally) that all three of the figures can be found in this ESB-b baggie, but as said not in every case, good to put this one to rest at last, please also see IG88 ESB-b baggie in the single baggie section for further details.

Image

Darth Vader Collector's Case 2ND issue with Luke Bespin/Yoda & Darth Vader, I have to date not confirmed which baggie type came with this set, but it is presumed to have been either ESB-e or ESB-f but I think? its the ESB-e's - PHOTO FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

Image

Image

Hoth Wampa - PHOTO FROM GOOGLE IMAGES

Image

TaunTaun - Sadly the only example to have surfaced was just a cut section from a box front - so again no clue as to which figure was included let alone the baggie type, but it is logical to assume it was a hoth figure, maybe Han & another figure?? we will just have to keep guessing eh

Image

TaunTaun Version 2 this one was offered in the Australian equivalent of the Sears wishbook (Waltones Greatest show on earth) & as you can see by the sticker it was Han Hoth included with this version of the special offer & it also still sports a Waltone sticker in the top right hand corner of the box front, I am assuming this was an earlier offer that the other one above as its a solid belly Tauntaun rather than the open belly version in the other offer.

PALITOY

Land Of The Jawa's - at last a palitoy item to include, though not technically a special offer item as the jawa came as standard with the palitoy version of the play set, this one is rather special as it has the elusive Sw-a baggie for the Jawa, the general consensus is that either A - this was issued prior to palitoy getting there own baggie stock, or B - low stock levels, so this being a substitute, though I assume scenario A is more likely PHOTO COURTESY OF Andy Clarke

Close up of the baggie is in the Jawa section of the guide if you want a closer look.

General Issue Vehicles & Playsets

As well as offering special offer items that included baggies Kenner/palitoy etc also offered sets that were widely available which included action figures as standard as a way to entice folks to buy items that may well not have sold as well had they not been offered due the the limited playability of some of them.

Popys from Japan

Huge thanks to yogi for all the help with detailed photos for this section.

Released for the Japanese market, these great looking single figure packs came with 2 little leaflets & a baggie in them, the artwork on the boxes makes for a stunning display piece & are becoming hugely popular with at least 2 fett's knowing to have been sold in the last year for seemingly astronomical value for what is a box with a baggie in.

They are considered to have come with ESB-c baggies, but have also cropped up with ESB-d & there are also several know to also have come with SW-a baggies, sadly only 15 figures out of the line made it to the Japanese market to be released under the Popy brand, each came with a token on one of the bottom flaps for some kind or redeemable offer, these are more often than not missing & can drastically affect the value of them even though its not something that's visible when they are displayed (always the little things)

Other Promotional Stuff from Around The World & End of toy line /dead stock items

During the life of the toy line, many baggies were offered in a variety of formats, some to reduce costs for the collector on a budget, some to promote other products for sale & some just to get rid of overstock, this is IMO one of the most interesting areas of baggie collecting & also some of the rarest baggie related items available or should I say unavailable, it would be killer to add some of these items to the collection in the coming years, sadly I know many are out of reach to us mere mortal collectors & the playground of the rich & famous.

Meccano red sticker baggies - not much I know about these TBH bar they were offered as a free "gift" for customers who bought a vehicle & were displayed in a counter top box (as shown below) over in france I believe in the ROTJ era as most of the figures that have been seen in them appear to be from the later issued ROTJ line, they came in a cardboard counter top filler box with catalogs, these are quite rare to say the least, some great info from Joe on these - thanks buddy!

Image
Image

Close up of the sticker -

Image

Some photos of ones that have been found below -

Image
Image
Image

Couple of promotional items up next, firstly the free figure offer from the glue manufactured UHU, all figures offered as far as I am aware to date were Ewoks & there were a few figures available, most came loose in the blister pack, but at least the Teebo has been found within the pack still sporting its Kenner baggie PHOTO COURTESY OF Stormtrooper37 -

UHU Stic

Colgate Spanish offer-

Next up this has to be the rarest of the rare baggie items known to exist & from what I understand (to date) there is only the one example in existence which is owned by Steve Sansweet, oddly enough when speaking about this piece he admitted he has no recollection of how it came into his possession, it has a bagged Bib Fortuna in it, due to its rarity & no other known examples having surfaced it is unclear if all the figures available on the back of the pack were available through this Colgate offer over in Spain or if they were all in baggies or loose figures, though I have a hunch they would all have been bagged due to the weapons & accessories coming loose otherwise, I will try to contact him at some point to ask if he would be willing to share a photo of it for this guide, in the mean time you will have to sadly make do with this repro box flat photo of ones they gave out at the Spanish talk over at CE2which I was lucky enough to get one of, I hope to make this up & add a baggie to it in future, which I will post photos of if I ever manage to get round to it -

Image

& Below what I think is Steve Sansweet's one, but can not confirm this.

Image

Woolies 8 packs - Woolies 8 figure 99pence offer bags, these were overstock bought up by the Woolworths chain directly from Palitoy right at the end of the the toy line when production ceased & palitoy were looking to offload their remaining stock, it is not 100$ clear if they were bagged up in store by Woolworths but it is the most likely option with the large plain black & white offer sticker which is very similar to the 49p mini rig offer price tags & large vehicle 4.99 offer stickers, they usually come with a total jumble of figures, some with weapons & accessories, others with just figure, some with figures & incorrect weapons & accessories, some but few still turn up with individual baggies in them (palitoy issue baggies frequently Palitoy-i's) but have been found with many palitoy baggie types like the ones pictured below, some have even cropped up with every figure in a baggie, though I am highly sceptical about these after the Bill Rodgers scandal, he was known to have faked these so be very cautious if looking to buy one, he used overstock Palitoy-a baggies, so if there are baggies in the pack or all baggies in the pack & are Palitoy-a one, I would avoid them at all costs, an interesting side note is that this is the only known source of POTF figures in baggies bar the few know kenner examples & the Palitoy issue Jabba's dungeon set,all examples to date of these have been n Palitoy-i baggies with very wide tape.

Young Jedi Mailer offer [ QUOTE FROM SHAWN ] something sent out by Kenner direct to children to help renew interest in Star Wars when the line was starting to die [END QUOTE] I could not really have worded it any better, thanks Shawn, I am including the below link kindly sent over to me by Shawn of this write up on the young jedi offer by written by Tom Nieheisel which goes in to great detail about this offer I know little about myself -

Super Group tear off strip - well I have been on the hunt for one of these for many many years, having first seen something similar when I first started collecting, like the woolies 99p 8 packs these are something I presume would have been out right towards the end of the toy line in an effort to get rid of remaining stock, its a simple cardboard hanging strip which would have had 10 baggies stapled to it, 5 on each side with a special price, initially 99p per figure, but later examples were further reduced to 49p to clear stock, from what I know they were available through the woolworths chain, but may well have also cropped up in other stores with the super group header not from what I understand being a brand specific to the chain, most I have seen have been just the Emperor figure in pality-i baggies, but some came with a mixture of ROTJ era figures, to date I have heard of a few other figures being offered on these strips including Rancor Keener/the ever popular Klaatu & lando Skiff, but I am assuming they would have at the time had quite a wide selection of other figures which had not sold well, I have also seen similar cardboard backing strips with 3 maybe 4 rows of figures on, again in baggies & stapled to them but without any kind of header to them,I am still not sure to this day what exactly the larger backers were for, if for onward sale in stores or for on the production line for carding, but I have seen enough examples turn up over the years to convince me of their authenticity, IMO a bit of a grail item for any baggie collector & one of the rarest things to find in baggie collecting, infinitely rarer than say the woolies 8 packs.

Shipping Cases

An area not of huge interest to most but one I am truly fascinated by as they are so stupidly rare they have to be only available in palitoy VCJ numbers :lol:

Baggies & single figure mailers like most of the Star Wars toy line items were shipped overseas in cardboard outers, 99.9% of these were discarded & destroyed after the shops/factory removed the toys within, there are many size & shape variations to them (no not round ones) as well as a variation in numbers of figures/mailers included in the cases, many came with 200 figures like the Luke jedi (green saber) one & the know C-3p0 Removable Limb's type, but there is word of 500 figure overstock baggie shipping cases, Kenner Darth Vader no text baggies to be precise, some of the single figure mailers like the Palitoy Emperor one only had 144 mailers in it, odd number though :? & further to that odd number point, a little tit bit of odd information I deem worthy of inclusion - I managed to obtain some sealed palitoy emperor mailers as I had intended to try & make the shipping case fill, to my dismay when I tried to fill it just the other day, I found that the others I just got are in fact 2mm wise than the ones I already had, so they will not bloody fit in the shipper as it was a very tight squeeze with the ones it came with (huge bummer), but this brings up the question - were there other size shipping cases for these mailers, either slightly large boxes to still sport 144 mailers, or maybe even larger outers with say 200 count in them, maybe smaller with 100, I guess this is a mute point as I can't see more turning up, but if you hear of one, please do LMK so the info can be added to the guide.

Kenner Jabba the hutt, technically a baggie as well even though not a sealed one, came in one with just 24 pieces obviously due to his waistline :lol: presumably the rest of the playset & parts came in separate shipping cases?

It is rumoured that some of the more readily available baggies came in these shipping cases like the At-St driver & B-Wing pilot & the ever present jabba's Pipe & bowl set/Salacious Crumb's EDIT 32/9/15 Pipe & Bowl shipper located please see below, but it's just speculation to date as I have not been able to find any hard evidence to confirm nor disprove this theory.

Image
Image
Image

Jabba the Hutt 24 piece case, most readily available baggie shipping case known to my understanding, I have seen several of them including full ones -

Image
Image


Kenner Luke Jedi 200 figure case, only known example to date, baggie type ROTJ-h

Image
Image
Image
Image

C-3p0 Removeable Limbs Baggie Shipping case - (ROTJ-c) 200 count, one of if not the most easy baggie to find as numerous examples of this shipping case have turned up, think I must have the worst one out there as its beat to hell, but I have one & am thankful I do, interestingly this one has a airline shipping sticker on it.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Palitoy Emperor single figure mailer shipping case 144 count with plain white box & no flyer for the figures like its Kenner counterpart, but the white box outer is the exact same dimensions as the Kenner one, palitoy single figure mailers as I have said earlier in the guide are a bit of a missing link, until I was lucky enough to almost accidentally stumble across this shipping case, I had been chasing the seemingly non existent mythical palitoy version for several years, never having seen one, its Kenner counterpart ( the individual mailers that is) crop up week in week out on ebay, though I have never once seen a shipping case available for them.

Image

Image

Jabba the Hutt, pipe/bowl & slave Leia restraints sets Shipping case (100 count) oddly these came with no printed markings on the boc outer like other shippers, just a hand written description, which leads me to wonder if they were shipped several boxes at a time in a larger box outer, which may have been printed with codes etc on, though I have never heard of one PHOTO OF SEALED CASE COURTESY OF - Kevin Bletsoe

Image
Image
Image

Palitoy Nien Numb single figure mailer shipping case - same as the emperor one above, but 200 count & again with plain white overstock boxes

Early Bird 4 Packs

Huge thanks to Mark Yeo for his contributions in this section.

I don't think this set needs much in way of introduction, as most will know this was the first way kids could get their hands on the toys from the films, being a mail away promotion of the 4 four available figure, which came with stands (pegs) & various paperwork shown below, there were a great many variations within these packs including baggie types (SW-a white text large font & small font & no no font/SW-b/SW-c/SW-d) & two catalog types.
