Star Wars Letraset “Action Transfers”

As a child of the 70’s i remember that Letraset transfer scenes where always pretty cool and i very much enjoyed them as a child. After looking through Mighty Jabba’ s post on the US Presto Majix transfers, i thought that i’d look for a Millennium Falcon related on for my collection. I wasn’t successful, but Greg (a friend of mine at work), found this Action Transfers sheet showing the Millennium Falcon in the Death Star Hanger.

Here’s a shot of the transfers themselves.

For those of you who are of the Playstation generation and are perhaps too young to appreciate these, you could place the transfers where you wanted on the scene and by rubbing a pencil over the back of the transfers the image would then “transfer” on to the scene. It used to be a bit hit and miss on whether the image would come off properly and i remember a lot of headless bodies inhabiting my dioramas. 🙂 It doesn’t sound like much, but in the 70’s these were great fun. I’ve tracked one down on ebay for £30 which is a bit pricey. 🙂

27/06/11: I picked this up today and was not disappointed. A great addition to my collection.

A long time Science Fiction fan and Star Wars collector, my collection focus has taken a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship and I thought that i'd start this blog to keep track of my collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as i progress.
