I was lucky to find 2 boxed items in the last couple of weeks with UK shop related stickers. The at at one is hard to find. The whsmith mini rig sticker I like a lot.

Holy shit Carl! That Fett’s a beaut. At first glance I thought it had a Kaybee sticker on it which would be strange if not impossible, a Palitoy sold in America.

Really like the stickered AT AT and INT too. I think they definitely add to the story of these items and make them more interesting.

Hey Andy, yep, that’s exactly what it is, a Palitoy sold in an American clearance bin. It’s a shop called The Toy Box which was owned by KayBee :D
If you zoom in it’s actually got the original, older, Toy Box green text sticker underneath the later red text clearance one.

Love the stickered boxes Alisdair, the Menzies box is in great condition, and I've never seen the mini-rigs sticker before. Great finds!

Oh it actually is!? No way :) I know we got Kenner stock, especially towards the end, but I didn’t know Palitoy packaged stuff found its way accross the pond.

Thanks. I've never seen the mini rig sticker before either. Come to think of it I can't think of any mini rig specific sticker from any shop?

The scout walker was the piece that got me back into collecting again, thanks to my son who bought me one for Christmas 2017 :D

Blinding AT-AT. That Pali Fett stands out a mile compared to the TT ones. Helps it's such a low grade :D

It’s been a Topps week for my collection! Managed to pick up not only a good upgrade for my British 1st series store display box, but also the elusive 2nd series box, which I’ve been after for years. That one needed a bit of fixing up, but it’s come out very well. Really pleased to have one at last.
