I wonder if it is a European version of the Blue Theatrical Promotional buttons that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] showed us earlier in this thread ?

I guess the other possibilities is that it is a bootleg/knock off or even just a fake but I honestly don't feel that's the case . Once again , Any help identifying this button would be greatly appreciated  What a Face

I think this one is on the Archive data base.

"Although there is no manufacturer indicated on this pinback, early merchandising lists from the UK attribute the production of badges to Bennett Associates of Glasgow."

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The list on the archive also seems to match the other buttons you have.  I also did a quick google search, and couldn't find much on "Bennett Associates of Glasgow" in 1977.
The only link on the archive with a picture, is the MTFBWY.

Awesome yay

Thanks Clint that certainly solves a good deal of the mystery bowwing

I am guessing this means they were made in Scotland scratch

I updated the post on page 1 with the factory / country info and added the link to SWCA Very Happy

Awesome. cheers

As soon as I saw the MTFBWY button, I knew that I'd seen it before, in another search.  Then the list from the SWCA matched up with the other button images.
Hopefully some of the UK members can tell us more about "Bennett Associates of Glasgow", and what type of company it was, and what other products it put out? popcorn

Very interesting. That white Fett button has a photo of him that I don't recognize from anywhere else. Based on that alone I'm surprised it's not more popular.

I've considered a Darth Vadar Lives button for a while but I couldn't tell if it was legit. I suppose fakes are rare as there isn't much of a financial incentive to making them.

Thanks for the great close up shots, I'll be sure to reference this when making any purchases.

James. There is nothing in my magic book on this button.

But I went onto the SWCA, and they have it listed from Australia only. There are two versions of this button. One with a black logo, and one with a red logo. There are 6 buttons, each with a red & black logo, for a total of 12 buttons.

Looks like it could have been made between 1975 - 1990.  From 4 different manufactures.
