My loose one was from Lee B at Echo this year, an upgrade but still has a couple of paint chips.

Here are the Canada and regular Kenner carded ones. I’m still on the look out for a German import one with the blue circle sticker

Very nice, Andy. Great to see some carded ones posted.

I've never dipped my toe into the die-cast waters myself, but the cloud car is an excellent sculpt, IMHO, and I feel this toy probably deserves more love that it gets.

Thanks for posting :-)

I don’t think that I have ever seen loose Cloud Cars in such great condition, nice ones guys.
Andy the colours really do “pop” on those cards, what a lovely pair....oh er!

Thanks Nick and Jeremy. These are really hard to find without paint chips and getting hard to find carded too

I think Kenner did a good job with both the die cast and large cloud car - not a lot of action features but a great sculpt

Thanks. :) Didn’t realize how hard they are to find without chips.

Finally got around to taking some pictures of my loose cloud car! I've also taken a close-up of the pilot.

Very nice. And that's also some good photography to capture the pilot!
