Palitoy ROTJ 1983 Competition Promotion

Whilst rummaging through my comic collection I found this old competition leaflet. To be honest, I'd completely forgot I had it, so it was a nice "oh yeah, I remember this" moment.

The competition was to win some Palitoy toys including a special viewing of Return of the Jedi, the Rebel Transport and AT-ST vehicles. To enter you had to finish of the story outlined in the comic. I honestly can't remember if I entered the competition or not. I suspect I had intentions of doing so and never got around to it. 

 Pretty cool, huh?

Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure Poster

 Poster advertising the release of Caravan of Courage in video stores. Nice collectors piece, and would date back to 1990, when the film came was released on video.

1983 Film Review Magazine

Film Review July 1983, with Luke and Leia aboard Jabba's sail barge. 

This magazine was produced monthly, and was available in cinemas in the UK.

1990s Star Wars comic with badge

Back in the day when I had a disposable income I bought two of this comic. One to read (and wear the badge!) and another to keep nice with the badge still attached.  

The comic was published in the UK by Dark Horse, and the issue was April 1993.

Episode 1 - Phantom Menace Rocking Chair

Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace - Anakin Rocking Chair. 

I picked this up from a local toy store in about 1999-2000 and it has stayed boxed ever since. The original packaging tape is coming loose but, as I say, it has never been opened.

Large Star Wars 3D Optical Illusion postcard

I bought this very large postcard whilst on holiday in Florida way back in 1994, and it's been kept nice and neat in my comic collection ever since. It is 8" x 10" in size.

These magic eye things were very popular in the early 90s'. If you've never seen one before, you hold it close to your face and move it slowly away without blinking an it should become 3-D.

I haven't seen one like this advertised anywhere, but I have seen smaller versions out there.

Carded Vintage Figures

 I didn't have many carded original trilogy figures, but enough to say I had a collection. 

Weequay (ROTJ)

The Emperor (ROTJ Trilogo)

Leia in Combat Poncho (ROTJ Kenner)

Bike Scout (ROTJ Trilogo)

Bib Fortuna (ROTJ)

Kaatu (ROTJ)

Kaatu (ROTJ Kenner)

IG-88 (ROTJ Kenner)

Teebo (ROTJ Kenner)

Ree Yees (ROT Kenner)

Nikto (ROTJ trilogo)

Yes, I could've put Klaatu and Nikto closer together, but without Barada the film reference doesn't make any sense (if you don't know, search for or watch The Day The Earth Stood Still

I also have a couple of carded figures from the Droids and Ewoks cartoon spinoffs.
