Cool write-up, thanks for sharing Peter.

His site looks great. I liked the section on SW filming locations.

Thanks for the link, Peter. Especially appreciated seeing the Palitoy company newsletters. I thought the mention of the products being ushered in for the first film's release was interesting. It notes "games, one of which is being rushed into production to co-incide with the film's opening in January."

Was that the British incarnation of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] board game?

I wished I can help you to confirm this, but I don't collect boxed Vintage Star Wars board games. However, if you are on Facebook and have Tan Tze Ing as your contact, he is the right person to talk to as I am aware he is doing a collecting run on this item. Wink

If Inunderstand the question right the Palitoy Escape from Death Star game is the same as the Kenner one but just with a Pal logo - is that what you are asking?
