What a beauty! A fabulous condition box by the looks of it, a lovely clean ship, the instructions, booklet, and even the old sticker sheet! Do you have the inner packaging as well? Either way, it's a terrific Kenner example!

Thanks for sharing :-)


Thanks mate for the kind words, no sorry no inner packing, but yes the box looks very great and the ship very clean. Not all the stickers is used on the sheet and I think I will never use the last ones, I think it is better to keep them on the sheet :D

The Imperial Shuttle really is a beautiful ship, IMHO. I loved the design from the first time I saw it in Jedi, and I love it still. An elegant, almost delicate design. I'm still staggered that Kenner made one for the 4 inch line, all the more so as it came out as the line's popularity was starting to wane. Yes, like many Kenner ships it's grotesquely undersized of course, but let's face it, they really didn't do a bad job with this one! It looks like it's supposed to, and the fact they even incorporated the moving wings still brings a smile to my face today! :-D

A fantastic armada of Shuttles guys all in amazing condition.
Not a yellow one to be seen!
I love this ships design but it’s too big for my collection space I’m afraid, so I’m unable to add to this one.

Thanks mate, well buy one, when you have it, then you find the room. I still find room for new things that I buy. Then I begin to look at my other items that I never use and put them up for sale. Last year I started to sell most of my new line star wars, I have not looked at them for 10 years and they did not mean anything to me anymore so out with them. Today I found a 4 slice toaster in a kitchen closet, I have had it for years and never used it, why then keep it, now that one is also for sale and the other day I found an electric knife in a box in the kitchen, I have had it for 20 years and never used it, that one is also for sale now :lol:

I'm not sure why I never got a shuttle. I wasn't hugely into vehicles (which is why I never bought the cheap B-wings in ASDA!) but it seems like an obvious late SW xmas present from my parents. They had done AT-AT and Falcon in consecutive years, then an X-Wing and Tie Interceptor...

Though thinking about it, I am not sure I actually saw it in our local ASDA (and frankly if it wasn't there or the shopping catalogue, I wouldn't have got it anyway)
