Hey; here's another quick limelight for today

I've been looking for a boxed European Imperial Shuttle for YEARS, I've searched the web looking to buy one, and the only references I could find where the low-res pics available on the net - until I finally spotted one on the recent French Drouot auction house sale, but the box was severely damaged, so I passed...

A few weeks ago I got in touch with a seller to purchase some vintage stuff, and I was lucky enough to learn he also had a vintage Imperial Shuttle mint in its European packaging.

Again it was a nice discovery which still makes collecting quite fun

First, sharps eyes will notice that the only different with the Kenner counterpart is that the Kenner logo has been airbrushed on the box front, and that copyright information has been updated on the side with the European licensees.

This one looks to be different than the "regular" Palitoy release, which featured a white "made in UK / Fabriqué en Angleterre" coo printed on the box ; as mine features a printed "made in France / Fabriqué en France" coo
