Finally, after quite a while, I’m able to add something to that part of my collection again. I’m very proud that I have managed to acquire this lot of 11 slides.
In this post I will only showcase the latest additions, in case you want to check my complete Star Wars Photo Art collection, please click here: <CLICK>
1st slideshows Kenner’s showrooms of Star Wars toys (left side) and Six Million Dollar Man (right side), photographed at the 1978 New York Toy Fair. The seller further stated „The only photo published of the Star Wars Showroom shows attendees visiting in the showroom area, as shown in 1978, #3 issue, of the now defunct Future magazine. My slide shown here has no attendees covering the view of the showroom. I believe that this photo was taken by the Future magazine photographer and was not used by the magazine and passed on to Kenner.“
2nd slide shows a Star Wars Showroom Display at the same New York Toy Fair in 1978.
Slides 3-7 show a Star Wars diorama. The slides are marked and I assume the markings say that they have been taken in 1978. Also marked with the letters „PL“. Not sure what that means, but maybe I can find out later. Any lead to where these pics were used is appreciated. The seller told he had found these together in a box with all the others.
Slides 8-11 are most likely another set of reference slides. The seller told me that he had found these together in the same box with the other 7 slides. This could mean that these have been used to give a preview of planned toys or maybe just as fillers? Guess we’ll never know.
Thanks for looking.
