I do not collect Die cast toys, but a few years ago I found 2 die cast landspeeder in a childhood collection. I sold them here on the forum. So I am sure that some of you guys can show some fantastic pictures of the die cast landspeeder :D

I don’t currently own any diecast but have had some in the past and I do regret selling them tbh , I think they are a fantastic line and the playability is great ! Up there with the figures I’d say .... I will put a loose run of diecast together one day :)

No I only have the star destroyer, xwing, and the landspeeder. Still trying to find a cheap slave 1. The landspeeder is missing the windshield.

Here's mine. Not had it long- picked it up at a local toy fair, along with Slave 1 for a very good price ;)

That's a nice looking Landspeeder! I've never collected die cast, but I've always liked the look of most of them, including this one. Thanks for posting :-)

Thanks mate :) Wasn't expecting to find any decent SW stuff at the local toy fair, but one dealer had this and a very nice diecast Slave 1. He also had a mint, unused Action Man free gift leaflet that was perfect for my childhood focus. Did them all for £24 IIRC, so a pretty good deal all in.

Could easily get into diecast stuff. Never had them as a kid, but remember my friends having them and seeing them in shops. Some boxed Palitoy ones would be nice...

Nice Land Speeder, and that's a fantastic price on those three items!

I do have a die-cast Land Speeder, but it's currently hovering its way across from the US!

(Edited for use of the phrase 'great price'. I feel so dirty).

That Land Speeder in the desert set up looks great, really makes the Land Speeder come alive.
And that Palitoy card looks shop fresh, nice collection.
