Die Cast Imperial Cruiser:

Image

Last item for this week, I do not collect Die Cast toy so I do not have any pictures to share with you in this thread.

Please share your pictures in the thread of this vehicle if you have any in your collection :D

and if you collect Die Cast what do you think about Die Cast and why do you collect Die Cast ? :wink:

Sorry, Die Cast isn't something I've ever collected, so I can't really join in with this one. However, hopefully there are some collectors out there with some good photos to share with the Forum.

Definitely one where I can play

Loved die cast since I was a child, and the Imperial Cruiser is a fantastic ship - the only way you can get a vintage blockade runner!

I've only a loose Imperial Cruiser to contribute to this thread, but not as nice as Andy's... and I can only dream about the Palitoy MISB!! :shock:

The die-cast line is fantastic. I had a Slave One and TIE Fighter as a kid, and a couple of my mates had the Falcon and Cruiser. Even as a kid I thought those boxed die-cast ships look amazing in their packaging. I'm looking forward to some of the others popping up in the 'Toy of the week' threads where I'll be able to contribute more (or at least get in before Andy does :wink: :lol: )

The only die cast I really want to get would be the slave 1 for my fett focus. Other than that id really only pick the up if I found them cheap enough.

Thanks Lars - its MISB, got lucky with my boxed palitoys in that I bought them about six months before the recent boom so they werent much more than Kenner.

I was waiting for you to come along Andy. That's a lovely piece, I like the packaging on these, the cards and the boxes. I was interested in collecting them at one point but then the prices went crazy and I realised I have no real connection to them cos I never had any as a kid. I do like the look of them though, great detail.

Kenner and some foreign MOCs are still around the £100 mark Andy - there's still hope for you :)
