This is the first of 2 items of toy that I will choose this week for the star wars toy of the week :D

I never had it when I was a kid :( but I remember that there was a picture of it on the back of the kenner ROTJ cards that I got when I was kid.
I looked a lot on this pictures on this cardbacks and placed and x on the items I had and a O around the items I wanted :D

I do not remember that I saw it in the stores when I was a kid, but it was sold in my country.

I will upload later today some pictures of my Ewok Assault Catapult collection :D

The funny pictures I will leave to subzero as always :lol:

Come on guys share your Ewok Assault Catapult Accessory 8)

I got one for Christmas 1983. Great toy. I remember playing with it lots, you could actually fire the boulders.. at your Scout Walker and what not. One of the only SW toys that did that and I remember having target competitions with it that Christmas with my cousin. I don’t have one but I would like one and have watched a few on eBay recently. Would enjoy seeing some nice pictures of a loose complete one if anyone has :D

Hi Rob, I will upload mine later today, I first need to take a picture :D I can just imagine how cool and funny it was for you to have such a cool toy to play with when you was a kid. I did not have one before in the early 00 and I am sure it will not be the same if I started to play with mine on the floor today :lol: I should have had it when I was a kid, then it would have been more fun to play with :(

Ok here is my Ewok catapult collection, I have 4 boxes.

2 Palitoy with 2 different danish price stickers for my danish focus.
2 kenner the damaged one is with a danish price sticker and then I have one without any price sticker that I only keep because the kenner that I have is damaged. I think it is nice to have a really nice one witout any big damage :D

Here's mine: A nice sealed box, but sadly a little faded, plus a set of loose destructions ;-)

I don’t have one but this is one option for a relatively affordable Ledy example, some of the differences are discussed on the Imperial Gunnery- http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t21 ... ead-part-1

Mine is the Palitoy sticker version. If you look carefully, you can just see it on the top surface of the box in the photo :-)
