Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 38, 2018, Part 2/2

I'm completely with you on this one! The TPCC is one of the ships I remember most from my childhood. I remember loving it because it had two cockpits and was easy to hold and fly around. I realise now it's pretty naff as a toy but I still absolutely love it. The clips on the canopies were a pain, a...

Thanks. I bought it (like much of my collection!) back in the 90's, and it's one of those toys that doesn't seem to appear with a good condition box very often, so I'm grateful that I picked it up when I did.

It's another fave of mine. I don't 'just' collect Jawas.

Old pic, but am up over 50 complete CCPS, now at 21 MoCs and 6 twin pod variants.

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 38, 2018, Part 2/2

First the pilot, then his ride, Lars? :-) OK, then! When I was a boy, I remember eagerly buying a Twin-Pod Cloud Car. The Pilot hadn't yet been released, hence the somewhat odd artistic choices made by Kenner's box photographer!... I can't say I remember Luke Bespin co-piloting a Cloud Car with a Be...

Very nice. And that's also some good photography to capture the pilot!

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 38, 2018, Part 1/2

Some great stuff so far guys - loving the mixture of MOC, extensive cardback runs and figure variants! I've always loved the CCP. Even as a kid I found the look so different to the other figures, and I'm sure I bought him as soon as I could. Here are my two MOC - one ESB Kenner 45-back, the other R...

OK, here's my Bespin Air Force lineup, complete with COO's especially for Lars :D A quick glance at most Cloud Car Pilots might make you think they are all the same, however a closer inspection reveals a surprising number of small differences which will interest variant collectors and send everyone ...

Re: Star Wars Toy of the Week, Week 38, 2018, Part 1/2

Great collection apack and lovely example mini A weird story about this CCP. I bought a 79 back Han Hoth from Australia and this 79 back CCP arrived instead. Packed in a tiny box and it smashed through the bubble so a real waste. A few days later the Han arrived in a similar box and had also smashe...

Re: My bible for many years, and still a good friend...

Yes, welcome to the Forum, and thanks for the post. It was a similar story for me with another Sansweet book ('Star Wars: From Concept to Screen to Collectible') that kickstarted me collecting in the early 90's, so I understand exactly where you're coming from :-)
