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

MLC-3 Mobile Laser Cannon:

Image

The first Item I have choosen is the MLC-3 Mobile Laser Cannon, I never had it when I was a kid and it was never in the star wars movies. But it
was in the comics and I think it is a cool little vehicle 8)

Here is some pictures of my own little MLC-3 Mobile Laser Cannon collection :lol:

I have this 3 boxes, all Kenner. 1 x ESB Kenner Box and 2 x ROTJ Kenner Box. The 2 ROTJ is from Danish Childhood collections. One was sold in the famous Danish Toy Store BR, I guess many of you have heard about it, the other one is from a Huge Warehouse called Magasin in Denmark, I have only found a few star wars items sold in Magasin so this box means a lot to me.

On the other picture I have 3 x MLC-3 without box, I have found them all in danish childhood lots with no box and they all have a different no coo scar. The strange thing is that I have found them all in 3 different danish childhood lots and all of them have no stickers :? So have I just been unlucky or was there something wrong with the stickers for the no coo with scar ? Was the stickers just bad so they fall of easy or was they sold without stickers :?

There is no funny pictures in my post, I will leave that to subzero :lol:

Come on guys share your MLC-3 with the rest of us and discuss :D

This one is a beater and a half and it's my first mini-rig, got it literally a couple of weeks back, it was randomly bundled in with a loose Han Carbonite figure I bought. I had zero interest in this mini-rig as usually I don't like them and I only wanted the Han figure, so put it up on top of the cabinet out the way while I figured out what to do with it and iv'e actually started liking it a little bit, plus it keeps the Rancor entertained :lol:

Not mine unfortunately, pics taken from eBay but this is one of the more extravagant MLC-3s you’ll find.

Great post and this is the only mini rig I bought growing up and always really loved it. I knew at the time that it wasn't in the film but for the price it was at the time (and now), it made for an affordable vehicle that fitted in well with the SW universe.

Great to see this little chap as the first of many posts to come :D

Hi

A very cool toy. Here is mine. The box is in better condition than the vehicle. The box is the $1 rebate version.

What a beauty, I love palitoy boxes. 8) do you know if there is other variants of MLC-3 palitoy boxes or was the ESB the only one they made ?
