Return of the Jedi Ben Kenobi Cromalin
Featured above is a cromalin for the Return of the Jedi 3 3/4" Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi action figure packaging. 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. The picture clearly conveys the vivid colors exhibited on cromalins. As one can see, this particular example is devoid of any markings or notations.

Adam has assembled a most impressive series of cromalins for the Ben Kenobi packaging. The run includes cromalins for Revenge of the Jedi, the two ROTJ packaging styles, and POTF. Assembling a series of this nature is no small nor cheap feat, folks!
