With such an amazing product in the hands of Star Wars collectors, a natural question to ask is, “What’s next?”  Well, they have 4 exciting things on the horizon:

2nd Edition

They will be doing a 2nd Edition of their Action Figure Book. The biggest difference between the 1st and 2nd editions will be that the second edition will not have all the Kickstarter details in the back (names of people in the varying tiers). Books will cost much less than what they’ve been going for on the secondary market, and Pre-Orders will be available up to May 12th at http://readfive.co.uk/book-pre-order

Palitoy Mini Guide

They will be producing a Palitoy cardback mini-guide in 2023. The Kenner cardback mini-guide is currently sold out.  It gives historical reference to the Kenner card fronts and backs for all Kenner figures from Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back & Return of the Jedi.  This is a very handy tool for mint on card and cardback collectors. Now Palitoy collectors can join the fun. Stay tuned on their website for further announcements.
