|Special Offer Slave I (Sears Exclusive)|
|It's always nice to come across something you never knew existed. This Candian Slave 1 toy, which came with a free Boba Fett figure packed inside of it, is one such item. Like most of these Canadian "Special Offer" items, it was exclusive to Sears-- that much is evident from the catalog number that's printed on the sticker, which conforms to other Sears codes. However, no such item appears in any of Sears Canada's 1980s Christmas catalogs, also called Wish Books.
According to Canadian collector Scott Bradley, Sears Canada also offered spring/summer specials as a means of ridding themselves of overstock. That could be what this Slave 1 piece is.
Here's a closeup of the sticker. Notice that it's printed with both French and English text. So's the package itself.
