|The PDT-8 mini-rig shown in this entry has been designated a "hybrid" of sorts as it contains
elements from various companies and countries. Scott Bradley, an avid Canadian collector, believes
the Canadian ESB packaging was used as a template for this ROTJ piece, which went on to see distribution
in European countries.
This photo shows the Kenner logo and Kenner Canada address.
Here is a photo of the back of the packaging, which shows both the French and English ROTJ logos.
Here we see the packaging bottom featuring the Miro-Meccano address.
This photo shows the packaging contents. Notice the Spanish PBP catalog's inclusion.
Finally we see a portion of the Palitoy instruction sheet. It should be fairly clear based on these pictures why the piece receives the hybrid designation. Thanks to Peter for this interesting submission.
