Well, I can't exactly claim it's my favourite vintage toy. Let's face it, you don't get a lot for your money! It looks more like a plastic bat to me, but whatever, here's mine :-)

Nice set Jeremy. Here’s a differently placed Palitoy stickered one, a very reasonably priced purchase from Echo live last year

That's a really nice condition set, Andy. It's interesting to see the sticker in a different place to mine. The placement of yours makes a bit more sense as it covers the Kenner logo with Palitoy's info, at least on the box front. I wonder if gliders can be found with the sticker anywhere else?

Nice examples posted, here’s my childhood one which is battered. Think they slapped the Palitoy stickers any where. :?

I have one of these on my wish list as well as the catapult. I am going for an Ewok focus and plan to build an Endor theme diorama the near future. Nearly there, got the AT-ST and driver, speeder bike, teebo, logray and chief Chirpa. :lol:

It's great that you still have your childhood one! :-)

Thanks for posting and thanks too for adding another location for the Palitoy stickers! I think you must be right; they stuck them anywhere they liked! :lol:

Thanks, mine is over a Kenner logo, but really random I think.

Sounds like a great idea to build a endor theme diorama 8) I have wanted to do that for years. I have enough items to build it but I do not have the room for the diorama :( I wish you good luck with the diorama and I hope you will share pictures of it on the forum when you get it :D
