Love the ESB Imperial cardbacks, always been top 20 figures for me.

Recent acquisition Palitoy Imperial Troop Transport.

I’m trying to add some unused vehicles, just things I like really, no specific line. Had one of these as a kid, this one came with the sound function not working but I’ve managed to repair it, and it reminds me of being 8 years old !

I don’t think the bottom insert is supposed to be present in the Palitoy box? Is it for the Kenner issue? Either way it’s helped preserve the shape.

Sorry about the pic quality, hope they interest someone 😊

Pete’s section on Thermos Flasks on the latest Vintage Rebellion Podcast inspired me with this latest pick up. Not sure if has the right lid or not but goes well with my little side focus

Thanks for the kind words about the Transport, I’m really pleased with the vehicle and it’s condition :D

Love the Yoda selection...

@TheJabbaWookie

Those thermos bring back memories of my school packed lunches. I’m sure I’ve a Black Hole version squirrelled away somewhere.

Is it a metal or plastic one?

It’s definitely plastic, pretty sure it’s white with a black cup top?

I’ll search it out and pop a piccy up 👍
