Click on any of the photos below for full size image :


This first card shown can easily be confused with a Fan Club related item but actually isn't .

On the backs of the first 2 issues of Poster Monthly there was a offer to receive a free Star Warriors Charter Membership Card with the purchase of a subscription to the magazine :

Very cool, I've come across some Bantha Tracks stuff at a few toy shows, the price seemed high for something that's kinda tough to display, love reading the stuff though.

That membership card from 1987 is pretty interesting, I didn't know that version of the Lucasfilm logo existed that early. The 1996 VHS set still has the generic looking green one at the beginning.

Digital archiving for the win. yay

Empire Strikes Back Fan Club Pencils

Click on any of the photos below for full size image :


These pencils can be found in 3 versions . The lighter Blue pencil is a bit of a mystery to us at this point . They seem to be very uncommon so the odds are it was either a early version that got changed to red , a late version that changed from red to blue or possibly even a exclusive employee item  scratch   sos

The Dark Blue pencil was a Fan Club limited edition re-issue in 2010 .

[500][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/500]
The Red pencil is the most common . It was included with the 1980 ESB Fan Club Kits and a 6 pack was available for purchase through the Bantha Tracks Star Wars Fan Club .

[600][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/600]
Multipack

The Multipack of pencils was only available for purchase through the Bantha Tracks Fan Club . Issue # 13 (Aug. 1981) started selling a pack of 6 of them and  was available for purchase through Issue # 18 (Nov. 1982) .

Awesome stuff James. The card almost looks like part of a story board? Where they detail how the shoot is going to happen.

That sounds aboot right Very Happy

I have now added all the fan club forms that are found in the Kenner In product catalogs (and some magazines) to their appropriate places on page 1 of this thread .

Well I say all but its just the ones that we already have in our library - I know there are more catalogs out there still that we don't have yet so there are probably more Fan Club applications to be found Wink

Thanks Clint yay

The one I find humorous is the Sci fi Convention Texas Chili Cook Off - only in America Razz

Its probably one of the most uncommon Fan Club items as well since it was only sent to Texas members scratch

Yeah, that one was good too. clapping Very regional. Would it have come from the people putting together the sci-fi con?

I have been reorganizing and upgrading more of the old photos to scans and picked up this great lot on Ebay …

[700][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/700]

It was from one owners collection and helped me out with some more history  cheers

I still have a lot of Fan Club newsletters to add and more reorganizing along the way but its slowly coming along What a Face
