Cool to see someone with a memory of the stickers. I have some vague memory of receiving one as a kid, but no proof has survived, so it could be my memory playing tricks on things. It's one of those things I'll never know for sure.

I wrote the article, so I've collected most everything shown. The only thing I'm still missing after several years is the envelope for the followup piece. I moved most of my mailer stuff to a separate website, so here's some further info for you with a quote from a well known Kenner employee in the community who was involved in the program. Also, there are some additional photos of the followup envelope when a fellow RS member happened on one.

I had the Logray version in the late 90's including the white mailer. It was a prototype as I remember the address being Anytown, USA or something to that effect. I am trying to recall if the Logray was also a first shot. Hand painted I think without COO. I had everything shown in the image. So yes, it came with the stickers. Heck, it may have been the one in the image. I will say, in my opinion, it was a rather unremarkable piece...for me anyway...and I only had it for a year. They really weren't that desirable 20 years ago. Things have changed. Oh, for the person that might have it here, it went all the way out to the Bering Sea before it landed back wherever it did. ;)

Oh, the Logray was also in a Kenner bag.

I'm not surprised it was a scummer that wrote that article. :)

The most interesting thing to me about this piece is that the first figure came in a bag with the kit, and the second figure was a regular carded figure stuffed in an envelope. I guess it was also an attempt to get rid of overstock?

I agree. I had always assumed it was a baggie too if anything. For reference, here's when I found the initial followup paperwork. Since then I kept an eye on auctions and that was how I managed to find all 4 figures with the blacked POPs. This is my own speculation, but I'm wondering if including a carded figure in the followup was done purposely by design. We know many of us used the cardbacks as a checklist and the whole point of this mailer was to ignite interest in younger fans who at the time were moving to other toy lines. It was a way to instantly show the child, that these were targeted at, what figures were available at the time and basically come with a checklist to collect them all.
