I didn't find any USA catalog from 1968 as this set is only-USA, released
by Samsonite in USA.
I can comment that the wheels
 
Part No: wheel1b  Name: Train Wheel with 2 x 2 Stud Center, Beveled Tread and Cam Axle for Motor
* 
wheel1b Train Wheel with 2 x 2 Stud Center, Beveled Tread and Cam Axle for Motor
Parts: Wheel
and the connectors
 
Part No: 996ac01  Name: Electric, Connector, 1-Way Male Rounded with Hollow Pin (Banana Plug)
* 
996ac01 Electric, Connector, 1-Way Male Rounded with Hollow Pin (Banana Plug)
Parts: Electric, Wire & Connector
were not released after 1968 (at least to appear in a newly released set)

This ad from 1968 shows three Samsonite models and the 205 set:

https://books.google.com/books?id=7VMEAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA81&vq=lego&pg=PA81#v=onepage&q&f=false

It is from Life Magazine, December 6, 1968:

https://books.google.com/books?id=7VMEAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PP1&pg=PP1#v=onepage&q&f=false

The models shown are

 
Set No: 335  Name: Transport Truck
* 
335-2 (Inv) Transport Truck
99 Parts, 1967
Sets: Classic: Vehicle: Cargo
 
Set No: 329  Name: Antique Car
* 
329-1 (Inv) Antique Car
111 Parts, 1967
Sets: Classic: Vehicle: Traffic
 
Set No: 113  Name: Motorized Train Set
* 
113-2 (Inv) Motorized Train Set
372 Parts, 1966
Sets: Train: 4.5V

You can actually see the 3-C reversible battery box and the 4-wheel train motor
in the photo of the 113-2 train model.

The ad reads:

"There are 17 different sets for children 3 to 12 years old"

The undated catalog on Brickfetish labeled 1968 lists 17 sets in the main line:

http://www.brickfetish.com/samsonite/1968_Hawaii/1968_hawaii_01b_2210r.htm

The ad reads:

"Also available: Lego sets for making cars, trucks and trains that are motorized."


In addition to the 17 sets in the main listing, the catalog on Brickfetish does
indeed show the "new" sets that can be motorized, including the 113-2 motorized
train.

All three of the models that appear in the ad, and which are referred to in the
text, are listed in the catalog on Brickfetish as "New."

The catalog is labeled as advertising the 1968 season, and it would appear the
magazine ad from Christmas 1968 supports that date, unless one believes that
Samsonite was putting sets in its ads that would not be released for three more
years.


http://www.brickfetish.com/samsonite/1968_Hawaii/index.htm?1

In that same catalog, the 107 reversible motor set is also listed as "new" at
the same time as the other models.

I believe the first year the 107-3 was available was 1968.

Thanks for supplying some more evidence. This request has been approved.

996ac01 Electric, Connector, 1-Way Male Rounded with Hollow Pin (Banana Plug)
Parts: Electric, Wire & Connector
were not released after 1968 (at least to appear in a newly released set)

In these official reference books:
 
Book No: 810003  Name: Collector's Guide - 50 Years of Play 1st Edition
* 
810003 Collector's Guide - 50 Years of Play 1st Edition
Books: Informational Book
 
Book No: 810005  Name: Collector's Guide 2nd Edition with Exclusive Key Chain
* 
810005 (Inv) Collector's Guide 2nd Edition with Exclusive Key Chain
Books: Informational Book
the set is listed as being released in 1971. So it's really hard to argue
against that, seeing as these books claim to use official data from the LEGO
Group.

The problem with the catalogs referred to in this thread, is that they don't
have years printed on them. As a catalog collector myself, this is one of the
most challenging situations I have ever encountered within LEGO history. The
early UK catalogs, for instance:
 
Catalog No: c62uk  Name: 1962 UK early issue
* 
c62uk 1962 UK early issue
Catalogs: 1962
are so confusing that to this day they are not sorted out correctly on BrickLink,
because nobody knows when they were released.

The only way to correctly handle this is to find advertising in a third party
that does have a date. I was able to do this for the first year of Minitalia
sets, and even though the data never got corrected in the second edition of the
collector guide (the one with the blue brick), I noticed when I was in Billund
this past December that someone had corrected it in their historical displays.

So just because Brickfetish or some other site lists those catalogs as 1968 or
1969, it doesn't necessarily mean they are correct. The history of Samsonite
LEGO is notoriously difficult to chronicle, and even the experts in these areas
make mistakes.

So if you want to change the dates on BrickLink for this set, you're going
to need some hard evidence with a date on it. I'm sure it's out there,
because both companies did extensive advertising in paper media. But it's
like searching for a needle in a haystack, and you're probably not going
to find anything by looking at online sources. For a magazine ad, you'll
need a physical copy of the whole magazine with a date on the cover.

One of the reasons BrickLink makes it hard to change release year information
is because it affects the history of parts in the catalog. And it has always
been this way. More flexibility has been given to lower priority sets like Educational
/ Dacta or supplementary parts packs. But the further back you get in time, the
less corroborating evidence there is to hang your hat on.

In this case we are talking about sets released by Samsonite under license, but
not directly by the Lego group. I would not expect TLG to have full "official"
information on Samsonite releases, particularly on Samsonite-exclusive sets like
107-3 (which appears to be virtually identical to the 102-1 set from Europe,
but nonetheless has a different set number).

At any rate, there is dated evidence that the 107-3 was available in 1968: https://www.bricklink.com/message.asp?ID=1149264

So someone assigned a date to this without evidence?

It just seems a little circular - we can't make this change without evidence,
and we can't accept the dates on other items in the BL catalog as evidence
because they might have been assigned without evidence.

In the past, a *lot* was done without evidence. I see this every day in my current
role. That doesn't mean that we can't now require evidence going forward
to make sure that things are as accurate as possible.

to need some hard evidence with a date on it. I'm sure it's out there,
because both companies did extensive advertising in paper media. But it's
like searching for a needle in a haystack, and you're probably not going
to find anything by looking at online sources. For a magazine ad, you'll
need a physical copy of the whole magazine with a date on the cover.

One of the reasons BrickLink makes it hard to change release year information
is because it affects the history of parts in the catalog. And it has always
been this way. More flexibility has been given to lower priority sets like Educational
/ Dacta or supplementary parts packs. But the further back you get in time, the
less corroborating evidence there is to hang your hat on.

  That is not true for series 1 up to 15 where all leaflets had a unique numbering,
also most series at least up to series 13 (if not all) had a unique code on them
to unlock the characters on the website https://www.playminifigures.com/ (is
no longer active, was closed at the end of 2016).

What do you mean by unique numbering?

Do you mean the 122091-1, 2, 3 codes?

I've just looked at 27 Series 8 leaflets, all have 122091-1 or 122091-2,
and I have not seen any other numbers after the dash. The exact same number is
on other series leaflets too. For Series 10 I have a 122091-3. I don't think
these numbers were unique to individual sets within a series.

Ditto. Entire Team GB series 122091-1, Series 4: 122091-2, series 5 122091-1
I do not see a unique code on any leaflet at all

  Hi,
I could not find anything on the topic :/
Could anyone explain please why are leaflets (instructions) for each minifigure
of the series kept separately in the catalog when they seems to be all the same?

It seems especially weird, when I saw that someone bought leaflet for percival
graves for such high price:
https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?I=colhp-22#T=P
while it seems that this leaflet is just pretty the same as all the rest of the
leaflets from this series....

Thx in advance,
J.

It is due to the fact that each collectible minifigure is treated as a separate
set in the BrickLink catalog. Since each set entry in the BrickLink catalog automatically
has an instructions entry added to it on creation, each collectible minifigure
set gets an instructions entry added to it on creation. It would be wrong to
say that each one of these sets does not have instructions included with it,
since each collectible minifigure does indeed come with the leaflet. Therefore,
each collectible minifigure set gets the leaflet as its instructions.

Cheers,
Randy

Thanks Randy, makes sense.

And I would a little bit modify my question then.
Anyone noticed that especially for HP collectables are there some differences
?
From what I found it seems all those HP leaflets are just the same.
But I might overlooked something, so I am curious whether anyone could confirm
they are just the same ?

Thx,
J.

The leaflet is the exact same for most of the collectible minifigure series.
Sorry that I can't speak specifically about the HP ones, but I would highly
doubt that there would be any difference in that series.

Cheers,
Randy
