Matt Fox revealed this today and the pieces will be on display at the “May the Toys be with You” exhibit.

As I (poorly rofl )understand it, these are basically Kenner hard copies sent to Palitoy so the connection to that licencee has more to do with the provenance than the items themselves. Very cool, makes you wonder what else is still out there.

Yeah, pretty interesting stuff. If there hasn’t been a deal behind the curtains already, this public display of them may have been designed to intise offers.

Been closely following all of this recent Palitoy stuff on FB. Some fantastic info coming out.

You guys hear also about the grey limb Snowies supposedly being confirmed as pre-production test figures? This debate has been raging for a few years now and I think most people (including myself) didn't think they were test figures.

Some background:
