Vintage Return of the Jedi Photo Button Store Display by Adam Joseph

April 19, 2012

I posted about the three Jabba-related buttons in this series quite some time ago, but I just recently managed to acquire an original store display filled with buttons. I haven’t counted them all, but it apparently contains 12 sets of 12, for a total of 144 buttons. That’s a lot of buttons!

I actually got the box unopened in the shrink wrap (as shown above), and yes I did hesitate a bit before opening it. But there was already a large tear in the plastic, and with this kind of product it seems to me that there’s little point leaving it sealed. You can’t really appreciate it unless you see it as it would have been in a store. As you can see, once opened the top of the box folds over to form the backer of the display box.

One thing I found pretty interesting was how the box only shows drawings of buttons — and not even of the actual buttons that are included in the set (there are no Bib Fortuna or Salacious Crumb buttons in the actual series, for example). Without opening the box, you wouldn’t know what the buttons actually looked like (see below).

Stay tuned, because I will be posting about another item related to the Adam Joseph button line very soon…
