Kenner Spec Sheet - Puzzle Assortment (E)
Puzzles were among the first Star Wars related toys created by Kenner. Since printing was much easier and faster than plastic toy production, Kenner was able to get these to market sooner. These may be photos of the actual file photos that Lucasfilm sent to Kenner. Unlike the other puzzles shown in this book this sheet does not correspond to any assortment number which is perhaps due to the fact that these are 1500-piece puzzles.

This Kenner product sheet is part of a 3-ring notebook containing early photography and descriptions of roughly 30 Star Wars toys. Each sheet has the same format with typed information about the product and a pasted-on glossy photo. Most photos are representations of the toys but they often differed from their released counterparts which makes it quite unique to look at. These were generally mock-ups of sorts created because the toys weren't ready in time for photography and early marketing. This book came from an ex-Kenner model maker who was dilligently tracked down by a collector. Many thanks go out to that collector for helping turn up a piece of history like this.
