What were you doing Palitoy??

So having recently uncovered a 4th variant on the Palitoy ESB AT-AT Instruction leaflet I though it best to share it with you all....

Image

1 - (Early Error Notice) - Rev.1
2 - (Common Error Notice) - Rev.2
3 - (Old P/N L1020 - New Battery/Bulb Codes) - Rev.3
4 - (New P/N L1147 - New Battery/Bulb Codes)

Image

Most likely over-sight by Palitoy and duplicated from the original Kenner artwork the first versions of the AT-AT instruction leaflets part number L1020 contained a printing error and state the US battery & bulb codes which were not available in the UK. There now appears to be two versions of the stapled on battery/bulb error notice.

Left - (Early Error Notice) - Rev.1 - (Discovered 25/01/16). What I have classed as the early version features a typeface similar to that of a type-writer, most likely a rushed though intrim change to allow Palitoy to ship product from of the factory.

Right - (Common Error Notice) - Rev.2 - The later more common version of the stapled on battery/bulb error notice, although still only text it has now proper artwork produced for it.

Image

Left - (Old P/N L1020 - New Battery/Bulb Codes) - Rev.3 - (Discovered 12/11/2016). It would appear that in all the haste of updating the battery and bulb codes Palitoy failed to update the instruction leaflet part number. So here we have the original L1020 leaflet with the new battery & bulbs codes.

Right - (New P/N L1147 - New Battery/Bulb Codes), finally someone at Palitoy got the docuemnt right!!

Went to sandown park yesterday - not loads of SW but lots of really cool toys to look at. So many dinky toys!

I bought a barada, Luke endor, a wing pilot (no gun unfortunately) and a lando general. So my set is now just missing Amanaman, Romba and Paploo - plus a blue snaggletooth.

Great to see the 'paperwork' from benny and Stef, love it (is it wrong for a grown man to get so excited by vintage instruction sheets?)

Lovely Palitoy Ben and loose set above too, thanks for sharing!

Hello mate.

It was £75 to collect. Now bearing in mind part of the deal involved me trading 2 Mocs plus cash and then the ledy moc, by the time you have paid for boxes and bubble wrap for those three, the proper insurance on the ledy and the goods payment fees on the outstanding money, it seemed like a no brainier. The deal was completely transparent as we got to see everything in person before doing the trade and I got to carry it home in hand, with no worry as to what might happen to it in the post.

It would have been cheaper if I had gone on the Wednesday but when I suggested it my wife reminded me it was our wedding anniversary.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo
And any other funky stickers or speeder bike oddities.

HolyMoly - so many really nice items posted in that short period ... but the LL-story/deal is outstanding.
Congrats on this fantastic piece.

I got a bit more common card on our annual german forum meeting, also was a trade + cash deal:
