Nice!

Always loved the modified flashlight toys. :)

Is that a Palitoy X-Wing, with the plastic piece in place of where the red bulb goes in the Kenner version? My eyesight sucks, and it looks like it, but not sure. That's one of the few pieces still on my want list, if it is.

And is that a pop up R2 as well?

This advert gets extra kudos for tossing in a bootleg laser sword right in the middle of all the official Kenner stuff!

I gotta find some more adverts. Pretty sure that is a Palitoy X-WIng, but the cannons look a little strange to me color wise.

And what is that standing in the MTV-7?? I think it's probably a Hoth Stormtrooper but someone clearly though he needed a head rather than the cowl. You can see the curve of the back of the head and even a dark line where someone thouht there should be a neck. Love it :)

I don't know if you guys have seen this Parker ad, but the cool thing (apart from the bizzarro farty sound effect) when you zoom in is that the X-Wings are all being flown by custom painted B-Wing pilot figures....

It does look like the Pal X-wing but also kind of odd. If the B- wing pilot is customised could the X- wing be altered?

great ads anyway 8)

I was briefly the custodian of these before passing them onto another member that would better appreciate them.

I actually had the toy astronauts and vehicles in the last picture but never knew where they came from.
