I'd have to look through my FFTC to give you a ballpark release date Gwyn but I'm fairly sure it was originally a 4x 600ft release.
I will check my Derann catalogues and get back to you with more precise info hopefully.

My own print came on one Posso 1800ft spool and it fills it to the safe maximum, so I doubt it would ever had been able to safely fit onto 3x 600ft spools with the joins being where they are even though many of these type of releases have varied at times between being a 3x or 4x 600ft release.

I'm fairly certain it was priced as a 4x 600ft release anyhow.

The FFTC edition from Winter 96 announces the release of Toy Story so it must have become delayed by a year then Dave.

I thought I'd seen it advertised as a 4x 600ft release in one of the catalogues but I haven't checked yet sorry Gwyn so if I'm wrong, I'm wrong sorry.

I have just searched out the items I was speaking of Gwyn and Dave for confirmation of what I was saying. Thankfully both did confirm that I wasn't completely going off my rocker just yet!

I found a catalogue advertising Toy Story and number 35 FFTC from the Winter of 1996 giving details inside of the imminent release of the trailer and feature of this Disney classic on Super 8mm.

Interestingly the price tag reference of T , ties in exactly the same as with other actual spooled 3x 600ft releases of tag ID Q at £259,99.

It was however spooled as a 4x 600ft release as the catalogue confirms albeit a few of the spools far from full given the joins.
