Vintage British Bib Fortuna and Gamorrean Guard Pencil Toppers by HC Ford

May 30, 2011

The British company HC Ford made a number of pencil toppers for Return of the Jedi, including these. Pencil toppers are not erasers, but instead are small plastic figures that are intended to fit over the top of a pencil. I’ve never really liked this kind of thing. You have to remove them to erase, so they actually make it more difficult to use your pencil.

These were hand-painted, and a little sloppily at that. It’s too bad they didn’t make a Jabba, although now that I think of it, the small Jabba figure I got recently from Argentina would be almost perfect for that if you drilled a hole in his bottom (not that I plan to do so).
