Rebel Armored Snowspeeder Vehicle:

I never had the snowspeeder when I was a kid in the 80s, I got my first snowspeeder in the early 00. I remember I wanted one a lot when I was a kid and I loved the battle for hoth and this snowspeeders flying around the at-at walkers 8)

I will add pictures of my snowspeeders later :D

I bought my first Snowspeeder aged 9 when on holiday at Loch Ness in 1981. Sadly that particular example came with a missing part, so it had to go back to the toy shop and I bought a Turret and Probot playset instead as they had sold out of Snowspeeders. It took me a while, but I eventually managed to get replacement :-)

The one below is not from my childhood as I foolishly sold all my toys when Jedi came out. However, I have since seen the error of my ways and picked this one up in the nineties:

First, what an awesome box you have there of that snowspeeder 8)

2nd great story but also sad that you sold your childhood toy. I am glad you saw the error and bought such a nice box again 8) What part was missing in the snowspeeder ? from your childhood :wink:

Thanks, Lars.

The piece that was missing was one of the two white plastic screw in covers that you fix to the rear of the Speeder. Fortunately however, the one in the box above is complete :-)

Love the Snowspeeder, was given one when I was 3. Can’t remember not having one. Neither of my boxes are from my childhood, but the ESB one is a beat up box from a good friend, which I repaired and put my childhood Snowspeeder in.

Will try and add photos, thought I had them saved. :oops:
