Actually I lied... It's not a price sticker, but is a bright yellow kaybee 'this items needs a alkaline battery - ask the store clerk' sticker.
Let me know if that's still of any I nterest and will post pics this avo.

Yellowy chin guns are good. Bit like when you see Palitoy Death Star canopies being sold on Ebay and the seller is like "ooh these are crystal clear". Time to run a mile!

Nice purchase anyway.
Snaketibe wrote:Well I very much doubt that that box originally came with that instruction sheet, but that's hardly a reason to question the authenticity of the box. It's common practice for people to replace missing items with parts and pieces from other incomplete ones in order to make one complete whole one. I would imagine at some point (possibly the seller that sold it to you, but perhaps a previous owner) has added a set of ESB instructions simply to 'complete' the item. I don't think that should ring any alarm bells as it's perfectly clear those instructions almost certainly aren't original to that particular AT-AT, but that aside, the rest looks decidedly vintage to me, so chin up . Hopefully as you say, someone with a similar ROJ boxed AT-AT can set your mind at ease regarding the 'Printed by R Smith & Crew', but it certainly looks to me like you have yourself a nice vintage item, so congratulations

I could be wrong but if the instructions didn't change they may well have just been getting rid of some unused stock when they first released the new box. Just a thought but I'm sure it won't be too difficult to find some Jedi ones.
It all looks great though and I'd be very happy with it.
