Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

That is very true

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

^ awesome find ! I remember going through old catalogs like this as a kid and clipping out the ads to put in a scrapbook . Too bad the price of the AT-AT is not listed there . I remember it was expensive even back then though . Strange that all of the ships and vehicles in that shot are on the ground but they took the time to suspend the tie fighter in the air . There was some inventive toy photography in some of those catalogs back in the day though .

^ I like the styrofoam snow, simple, but effective.

They tried something very similar, but with lesser results, in a Norwegian ad from an old “Marvel” comic I recently scanned.

I think they were trying to create a star-field in the background by poking holes in the cardboard, and placing lights behind it, but it’s not very effective. That’s what I find so amusing with these old Scandinavian ads, they had far less money to spend on these things, so it always ended up looking a bit off. This one pretty much looks like it was just made by some fan in his garage (second half might actually be true for this one).

(Also, Yoda is just hanging out on Hoth with a snake.)

nice ! I see they back lit some of those holes but not others . it’s like they ran out of light bulbs and said ,the hell with it ,let’s run it anyway 😃 I also like how you can see the wires on the x-wing . these are charming . by way of comparison , I have seen some mind blowing fan made dioramas over the years .

One thing which I’ve always liked about that ad, especially as it was in a SW comic, is the text which basically encourages kids to make their “own continuation” of the SW saga. I’ve seen a lot of SW toy ads that try to sell the ability to recreate scenes from the movies, but here the focus is on letting the kids tell their own “EU” type of stories. I’m too young to have experienced the Kenner era of SW, but that’s definitely what I did with my SW Lego in the late 90’s.


Also, I’ve had this comic since I was like 11-12 years old, and I’ve never spotted the strings on the X-Wing and Vader’s TIE until now.

^ Does look a pretty sweet Tie Fighter that, too 😃

I remember getting the battle-damage stickers along with the Palitoy X-Wing as a kid - difficult choices back then as a kid - to use them or not…

Just look at the price tags. The latest Falcon is obscenely over priced even with inflation.
