V&A picture

Postby Thundershot » 16 Mar 2016 10:18

Hi folks

Doing a quick google image search for :AFLogo: and came upon this in the V&A web site:
http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O4765 ... t-palitoy/

The base must be a sample sent to Palitoy by Hasbro. Zoom in and inspect the team logo's, on the figures & vehicles, they're mostly all German... notice anything odd about :skyraider:'s badge ?

Cheers

Strange thing, doing a search for :AFLogo: the V & A list the company as being Air-fix & the manufacturer as Hasbro.

http://collections.vam.ac.uk/search/?of ... ionsearch=

Lots of interesting names listed but sadly no photo's, nearer the last few pages,.. weather or not these are well known characters or documented examples would be nice to discover.

Going with that :qforce: sub & :boffin: I guess this is part of the Palitoy archive Dave Tree investigated all those years ago.

How bizarre, maybe they intend to add more photos over time? Not seeing :boffin: though...

No problem.

Hopefully we'll get more pictures in time.

Some of these must of been in development around the time that V.A.M got canned:

Those have been there quite a while, don't think any new images have been updated since I last looked about 6 months ago which is a bit of a pain.
