I am currently in the process of helping a friend and collector to put together the definitive DVD of Kenner Star Wars Toy Adverts
I have and old VHS from 1992 along with a number of DVDs bringing the total number of ads to roughly 90.
The DVDs are from transfers of 8mm and 16mm reels, producing pretty good quality results. However, the VHS is a 3rd (or more) generation copy of another reel with the title caption "Star Wars Toys Historical Reel". I am trying my best to source the best available quality, and this is where I need your help.
Does anyone out there have a decent copy of the VHS mentioned? As I said, it was doing the rounds in the early 1990's when vintage collecting really took off again.
Additionally I have seen the toy adverts that one of the Holiday Special DVDs comes with, as well as those fantastic Palitoy ads on the Clapperboard release, so I don't need a copy of those.
If you have any Vintage toy adverts at all, please drop me a line. Any screen shots you have would be useful.
EDIT: I've noticed that BLAK0010: Star Wars: Classic Kenner Commercials is mentioned on another thread. Is anyone able to post a screen grab to show me the quality of the ads on this disc please. Thanks
I dont have anything to contribute to this release, i just want to say that I have been looking for something like this for a while... I never saw Rikter's set posted, but I would LOVE to see some old toy ads (besides, as you said, the ones on the holiday special and the clapperboard)..... really looking foward to this!
