More exquisite scans from Mikey Walters. Don’t miss the enlargeable finished (and signed!) product beneath each of the front covers. There were seven sets total for The Empire Strikes Back. We’re missing Dagobah Bog Planet and Ice Planet Hoth.

The first Presto Magix sets appeared in 1978, but no “rub-down transfers” were released in the U.S. with a Star Wars theme. UK company Letraset innovated the dry transfer technique beginning in about 1961, according to Wikipedia, developing children’s Instant Pictures in 1964 and Action Transfers in 1969. There were several Star Wars Letraset “scenes” released in early 1978. The original three can be seen at the brilliant old school Star Wars blog Episode Nothing.

    Sorry for the late thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed these! Watch for more old home video game scans on my Flickr stream in the coming weeks.
