With the slight foxing and out of its cellophane these are about £20-£25. Lovely item.

I have one of these somewhere still in it's brown card shipping box (it might be an open-ended slip that goes over the box, can't quite remember). It always surprises me how cheap these things still go for, it just shows that even when something is both vintage and Star Wars it doesn't always mean big money.

The boxes on all these kits from way back when look great to me and it's something most collectors can dip their toe in if they fancy it.

If that's what you decide to do, and I tend to agree, please post pictures of the end result.
