Kenner packaging art by Kim David McNeill Simmons


Kim David McNeill Simmons was the man responsible for photographing the Kenner (Palitoy in the UK) box cover art. He’s selling high resolution prints of his work at his web site and i think that it’s hugely nostalgic. There are a lot that bring back fond memories of my childhood, but only two that i am considering for my collection.

The first is the Empire Strikes Back cover art. Of course i have something similar from my youth, but time has not been kind to the box, so it’ll be nice to hang this near my toys.

Kim-D-M-Simmons-Gallery-Classic-Kenner-Return-Of-The-Jedi-027I mostly associate this art with the Lili Ledy Millennium Falcon, but good examples of those toys are prohibitively expensive and i don’t have one in my modest collection. This will be the closest thing.

I’m having a lot of difficulty getting onto the web site, so i can’t tell you the size of price of these prints.

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.

    Apparently the lustre or metallic choices range from 8×10″ ($25) to 20×24″ ($75). Having these images free of package markings is a better option than keeping bulky cardboard boxes.

    I plan to get prints of the Jabba playset and prototype playset photos myself. 🙂
