The art is almost always amazing and some are by mighty fine comic book artists such as the amazing Brian Bolland. The best ones are invariably the Palitoy ones as they have the double whammy of having the nostalgia for the toys and the best art.
Currently putting together a database of as many adverts across UK publications as I can find. I have over 1,000 Marvel UK comics so it's a good starting point but I think that number will have to significantly increase to be in anyway comprehensive.
Once I've gone through what I've got I'm going to try and find the time to put them up on a site as a reference guide. So far I've seen more than 60 different Star Wars adverts. The guide will show what advert appears in what comic or magazine, how many times it appeared and so it's relative scarcity. Should be able to throw some visuals in, too, to show the timeline of when each advert appeared. All a bit geek but I think it could offer some interesting insights into the marketing of the products in the UK.
