Seen a couple of the Palitoy adverts sell for $40 on Facebook. Seems crazy when the comics are a couple of quid.

Saw this this week, a slightly different take on the Fett ad. Very lo-tech

I just had to Google 'moiré' to work out what you were on about!

I was aware of the phenomenon but didn't have a clue what it was called - you learn something everyday.

Hopefully i'll have something to add to this soon, picked up these bad boys from my local comic book store at the weekend.

There's plenty more, just have to hope they're still there after payday!!

I love flicking through vintage magazines especially old gaming ones like Crash or Zzap64, I have loads of old Crash,Battle,Victor etc, some of the advertising is fantastic. You really don't see it anymore some of the artwork is incredible.
The stuff I really like I either laminate or put it aside to eventually frame and display it.
Just look how incredible the Lord Of The Rings advert is for a game that came out in about 1984 by Melbourne House.

Thanks for sharing. I hadn't seen the SW LP competition before. Any chance of photos of the earliest 2000AD you have there?

The Christmas issue of the comic couldn't have been a better recommendation for Star Wars "The best film of all time!"

I managed to get prog 6 to 100, I lost these early issues as a kid at some time, I have some issues between 100 and 150 and then all from that date, just looking through them now and will post any other interesting ad's story / competitions etc just missed out on 1 to 5 at the boot sale someone grabbed them before I got there :lol: should be able to check 1977, 80 and 82 for anything interesting and post :)

Love the grifter and tom baker ad I had a blue grifter cool bike but the front fork bearings always fell out when you tried to ride it like a bmx :D soon uprated to a mongoose

Totally agree, the advertising from that period is fantastic, and as you say the adverts for games in the like of "Crash" are worthy of being framed.
I had never thought about that before, these in frames would look great in the right room.
Oh I wish I had keep my copies of "Crash" great mag.
