Star Wars Palitoy documentary coming to BBC4

I contacted about this a while back and thought BBC Midlands would get a programme about Palitoy in general terms but NO we're getting a national programme about Palitoy and Star Wars. Oh and a longer version of the last, very good, BBC4 SW doc. https://mobile.twitter.com/david_insideout/status/1197...

That's quite a picture JabbaW.

It does mess with my memories seeing a Transport sharing a Christmas with Trilogos. Great stuff.

Re: Do we know when certain card backs were launched into shops?

I don't know exact information but most of those figures came out in the 1981 wave. They'd be among the newest figures at Christmas 1981 although the figures tended to come out in Spring into Summer so would be a few months old. Still bigger than sliced bread tho...

Re: Were they rare

There were toys that never made it to the next movie's range. As a child of ESB, I never saw a Death Star Playset on shelves. My slightly younger Star Wars loving friend who got onboard during ROTJ doesn't remember seeing A Cloud Car or Dagobah.

Re: Rubbish eBay Packing - What Should I Do?

I felt the need to contact someone for sending me a boxed Snowspeeder simply wrapped in brown paper. S/he had very low feedback so I politely said that the boxes of these things are desirable and s/he might get caught out with a claim in future a similar item got damaged.

Re: Poll threads

Thanks Edd. My 10p's worth is I'd personally like to see TOTW threads split off too.

Re: What item did you get for a bargain because of a flaw?

Great finds. The Menzies sticker on Dengar puts a hat on it! Two things of mine spring to mind. Firstly, a Stormtrooper that was described simply as 'opened' and I figured I would try and reseal it. The poor description must have put people off as it went for only 19 quid. It turned that opened act...

Re: Poll threads

I'd like the Toys Of The Week and polls seperated off from the main forum, if this is a makeshift poll. :) I'd be more inclined to look at the TOTW chat if the threads were titled with the name of the toy rather than week numbers,etc. I like voting in the polls but have got a bit lost - hey I get lo...
