    Action Figures including the first 12 plus the Death Star Droid, Power Droid, R5-D4, Greedo, Hammerhead, Walrusman and the Blue Snaggletooth. Interestingly some of the images of the figures have been reversed so that they have their weapons in the wrong hand. I don't know if this was done for a particular reason such as 'balance' or if it was just poor quality control.

    Page 11
    The first wave of Empire Strikes Back action figures are shown here. These all appear to be hand painted figures due to the extra details on them. Take a good look at them all compared to the general release figures and I think you can find a difference in all of them. These hand painted samples were also used in much of the packaging and promotional photography. Han Hoth and the Rebel Soldier are particularly easy to spot in the Imperial Attack Base packaging photography.

    The Toltoys cardboard Death Star Playset which is similar in construction to the Palitoy and Candian version. I am told that the materials used in the construction are slightly different to those produced in other countries and also that the color of the graphic vary slightly.

    Page 12
    Playsets of the Droid Factory, Land of the Jawas and Creature Cantina. Also the first Star Wars collector case.

    Page 13
    More playsets with the Hoth Ice Planet and Imperial Attack Base. Again, the hand painted figures can be seen in the photography of these items. Image of the Tauntaun as well.

    Page 14
    12" Action Figures of Luke, Leia, Han, C-3PO, R2-D2 and Chewbacca. All figures now appear to be the actual production items.

    Page 15
    12" Action Figures of Ben Kenobi, Darth Vader, Jawa, Stormtrooper, IG-88 and Boba Fett.

    Page 16
    Die Cast Vehicles of the first four released and still the prototypes of the Imperial Cruiser, Millennium Falcon and Y-Wing Fighter.

    Page 17
    More Die Cast vehicles with prototypes of the Snowspeeder, Slave 1 and a Cloud Car that is titled 'Bi Pod Ship'. Action figure scale Millennium Falcon.

    Page 18
    Landspeeder prototype as detailed in previous catalogs. Snowspeeder prototype with different cockpit, early main guns and a different rear gun as well. Bi Pod Ship prototype (obviously the Twin Pod Cloud Car) which is completely different from the final product. It is in a non-production gray color, the shape of the pods are wrong, the engine shape has round nozzles instead of a square unit and the air intakes on top of the cockpits are much larger. X-Wing Fighter and Imperial Troop Transporter production items.

    Page 19
    The Force Lightsaber, Laser Pistol and Laser Rifle.

    Page 20
    Radio controlled R2-D2, electric toothbrush, jigsaw puzzles, masks and the Electronic Battle Command Game.

    Page 21
    MPC Model Kits of Darth Vader's TIE Fighter and an X-Wing Fighter. Also a non-Star Wars item but very interesting and cool for collectors, the 18" Alien action figure that sold poorly at retail but is highly sought after today.

    Page 36
    Destroy Death Star and Adventures of R2-D2 board games as well as some non-Star Wars board games.
