Unused Flat for Kenner Yoda Vacuform Store Display
Here's an oddity: An unused flat for Kenner's dimensional Yoda store display of 1981. The display as it was shipped to stores consisted of two of these flats, each made from thin plastic, that had been contoured using the vacuform process and then stuck together. The finished piece was double-sided and looked a bit like one of those maps on which hills and mountains are raised above the surface.

This particular item has graphics on both sides, one of which exhibits a printing flaw. It's possible it was used as a test by whatever manufacturer produced these for Kenner.

If you look closely at the lower left corner you'll see a white rectangle indicating where tape was present for a number of years. This item was probably hung on a wall for display purposes, and the plastic surrounding the tape yellowed over time.
