|Star Wars C-3PO (Fett Offer) Action Figure Packaging Cromalin|
|Featured here is a cromalin
for the 3 3/4" Star Wars C-3PO 20-back action figure packaging.
This example is particularly nice as it features the "Free Boba Fett Offer". According to Bill this is the
only example of this card type he's aware of based on his research. Cromalins play an extremely important
part in the creation of toy packaging. Notes are often found on cromalins to indicate changes that
need to be made before the final version is approved. Suggested changes vary from piece to piece, but
range from text absence, necessary color changes, etc. This example is free from any notations whatsoever
so the card image is entirely unobscured. The pictures clearly conveys the vivid colors exhibited on
cromalins of this nature.
This cromalin heralds from the collection of Bill "C-3PO Addict" Cable. It represents only one of the many fine pre-production items Bill has added to his impressive character focus collection. Bill runs a SW-humor site called Creature Cantina, so be sure to thank him for sharing this item with the collecting community by visiting his website located here.
