Glad I wasn't the only who didn't know about this!!

Some play/display opportunities that my childhood was robbed of!! :?

I only knew the Fx7 one from the Kenner add I saw early 2000's, though not every Fx7 I've found seemed to have that rotation!

The Han Hoth thing is pretty cool and occasionally when you buy a big lot then you find the weapon stuck there which is a nice bonus

Squidhead, Greedo and Luke X-wing are also good for keeping hold of their blasters

Here's one for people, did you know that the smugglers hatch actually fits onto catches under the part of the roof that can be removed

Now's that's something I didn't know. Still learning new stuff after all these years!

...and this my friends is why you must listen to The Vintage Rebellion Podcast (although when this was covered it was called the SWFUK Podcast).
I think it was either episode 11 or 12.
We talk vintage and lots of it :D

Knew both the Solo holster and FX-7 mid-section movement - although do also remember it was quite stiff and didn't rotate anywhere near as easily as the one featured in the TV spot...

I only found out here recently-ish that the Ugnaught blue/purple aprons weren't variants but just colour degradation.

I knew that it clicked to the lid but I didn't know that - just checked and it is on the instructions :)

Yeah I know about the Han Hoth blaster going in the holster, mine are on display like that now. Only found out about it a few years ago as an adult collector though, didn't know about it as a kid and I did have Hoth Luke and Han as a kid.
