Hi

I have owned this for a couple of years now and feel it is time to share.
I run my own shoe repair shop in Sheffield,England and a few years ago started selling mainly neo-classic SW items as i had space i wasn't utilising.
One of my customers saw the stuff and introduced me to a young lady who used to live and work down South and she asked me if i collected too to which i replied in the affirmative.
The following day she came in with the item on the right.
Now it is very hard to act uninterested when you have seen something out of the ordinary so after a bit of bartering i became the proud owner.
I asked her if she had anything else from when she worked at Bridge Farm Diaries but unfortunately she didn't.
I also got a bit of info regarding the sweetheart international pots they used but my memory aint what it was.

Anyway here you go





It is nice to have a pot with a sealed lid(no contents tho thank goodness)
The Ackbar image on the right is also rough textured/painted as opposed to the printed end products.
And notice the lack of ingredients.

Also wondering if anyone can cast any light on the flavours they made.
I have a full set of pots and there are no Mandarin flavours on any character.
Did they make Mandarin for Ackbar or did they only do Pineapple?

Thanks for looking guys.

Enjoy

I think it was part of the Admiral Ackbar breakfast line.

That's a great piece hang onto that gbaby for sure.

I've been trying to find a used lid for one of these pots for years with no luck. I saw one go to a big collector once.
But to have a sealed non yoghurt example is fabulous. Let me make you an offer


Thanks for limelighting this right click save for sure

Re: Prototype Ackbar yogurt pot?

Hi guys

Many thanks for your comments.
Mark
good to hear from you,not seen you around for a while,you still going to the fairs?
I don't think the IOP limelighting of this piece justified it really,should have posted here originally as RS seems to be the only forum that is staying relatively strong.
I need to see some other Yogurt protos if they exist?
Can you remember the guy who was selling the Bridge Farm Dairies poster btw?

Mr Naylor,please feel free to make an offer

I cant see it making much difference though

I remember a foil lid listed over here a couple of years back and i forgot to make a bid!

I did set to 'watch' though,i seem to recall it was Gus who may have won it?

Regards
Paul

I must say I think this is a fantastic item. A mock-up of a diary product is awesome, even the bar-code is hand drawn. I remember seeing it before without making a comment. Great story for a great item, thanks for the share.

That's pretty interesting.

Could you show us some more angles ?

There is another picture on the production pot and there is a hint that it is on the mock-up one too. Are the pictures identical ?

Here ya go Tim.



There are obvious colour differences and the proto pot has more artwork showing at the right hand side.

On closer inspection guys i have only just noticed that all around the pot is a layer of thin card/paper to which the graphics are painted


I have had this within my collection all this time and only just noticed this

I take it the gaps mean you are looking for doubles of those to display both sides ?

I guess I just like the combo of low fat and Jabba, yellow pot of not it's still cool.

Was great to see these together thanks again for showing them.

Though you've put them on my radar so hope I don't step on your toes if you are still looking to plug gaps.
