Dated 1977 and distributed for the Christmas 1978 holiday season, this STAR WARS display platform was a box-top giveaway promotional item produced and distributed through a partnership between General Mills Fun Group (General Mills Cereals) and Lucasfilm. It holds the first, original 12 action figures (NOT INCLUDED) on 4 banks of 3 rotating standsall of which still move freely and have all gears and handles present.The base is in very good vintage condition, with no noteworthy damage or discoloration and the front decal is 95+ % intact. The underside is very dusty as it sat upside down in our attic for 30+ years. It will be sent this way for future owner to clean as they decide. This dust doesnt impede the workings of the gears or movement mechanics.
The cardboard background is showing its age, but is still complete and in fair to good conditiona little more wear than a typical for similar item of its age. It has a small tear that is easily hidden and numerous cracks where the color has come off. The back has become damp at some point and the watermark is clearly visible on the reverse, but is only slightly noticeable from the front. There is also some insignificant separation and fraying of the cardboard in some regions of the edges.
All of these flaws are made much less noticeable by the busyness and complexity of the scene, which distracts from these imperfections. Im sure that MOST of these that are still around have very similar damagewe just want to be extremely clear in detailing it for the future owner. When I was going to restore the background, my plan was to take a high definition scan or photograph of it, put it through an image correction program to clean it up / retouch the flaws (Photoshop it) and then have it printed to size on card stock (or mount a color print to the correct size card stock). This would create a near-perfect reproduction with a high glossif thats what you desired.Since the base just needs a very little touch up and some cleaning with a gentle hand, the end result would be a near perfect restoration. Unfortunately for me, I have far too many of these projects and neither the time or space to complete them.
