Comp Sheet for Unproduced POTF X-Wing Fighter Box
I absolutely love this piece. It represents, of course, the front of the X-Wing Fighter box, as it was planned to look upon its release in the Power of the Force line-- an event that never came to pass. It is what is known as a comp. Basically, it's the imagery planned to be used on the package, printed in color on a piece of paper. When the time came to make prototypes of the POTF X-Wing package, for photography or display purposes, the color portions of this sheet could be cut out and applied to a generic box.

It is notable that the appearance of this item is consistent with the graphic style employed on the other toys in the POTF line. In place of the photographic images employed on the older Kenner toy packages is a reproduction of a dynamic and colorful painting of the toy zooming away from an exploding Death Star. Totally cool. It should also be noted that the text specifies that the POTF issue of the X-Wing was to be later Battle Damaged" version.
