Palitoy’s Star Wars Ads: The Forgotten Comics

by Rich Handley

It's the collector's universal dilemma: No matter how much stuff you amass, there's always something left to find, always one more cool item you didn't know about. If you're a Star Wars fan who didn't live in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and early '80s, that something could be a handful of advertisements created by British toy company Palitoy.

This week, starwars.com posted an article by yours truly discussing a number of these strips (see article). For those interested, here are scans of all the "comic ads" discussed in that article (click on each image to view or download a larger version), since the Star Wars official site included only a few of them.

If you know of any that I'm missing, please be sure to let me know. Thanks!
