Panini - Europe - ROTJ Sticker Album (1983)


Panini issued a number of different albums for stickers in various countries in 1977, 1980, and 1983. In America, only a Return of the Jedi album was issued, but several countries were given a chance to collect and paste stickers for Star Wars and the Empire Strikes Back as well. There doesn't seem to have been a particular pattern for how albums were distributed. Unlike the European albums issued in 1997, these albums were completely unique to each country, making them a fun collectible.

The German Return of the Jedi album is smaller in size than the Star Wars album. The cover shows various stickers from within the album. There is very little text within the album, except for the descriptions for each sticker scene.

The album allowed collectors to collect a total of 180 stickers, including several that are cut outs showing various ships. I have detailed them below with descriptions of the pictures they formed. Where multiple stickers are used to form a single image, they are listed together. I hope to post scans of my album in the near future.
