Poch Toy Advertisements from Copito Magazine
Star Wars action figures hit hard in Spain by the time of the launch of The Empire Strikes back in 1980. As such, significant advertisements can be found in many comic magazines from 1980-1981. These 3 types of advertisements are the ones that could be found in the back cover of the Copito magazine numbers 3, 4, 32, 28, 38, 39, 53 and 55.

Copito magazine was printed by Editorial Bruguera between 1977 and 1982 and for the most part it was featuring the comic adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons, so popular to children in those years. The size was 18cm x 13.5cm (a little bit less than an A3) and covers were made of cardboard.

Similar advertisements can be found in other comic magazine from same years: Don Miki, Don Donald and some others.
