Ha ha - thats very true

Not much to add to this one, had the loose kenner a long time and need an upgrade, a Kenner MOC and the loose again in a recent snowy pic

Apart from factory variations there are only two carded versions of this. Anyone have a Canadian issue?

Outstanding, it looks awesome. I did not know there was other toy items like the action figures and blasters on the backside, very cool 8) I thought there was only die cast on the backside.

I have been thinking about adding the blasters, rifles and sabers for star wars of the week but I do not know how much there is. I can see some on the back of your moc. Do you know what there is ? :?

the back of the die cast cards advertise the sabers and blasters the whole way through - its basically the two blasters and the saber on these card backs and the biker scout pistol, but loads of box variations. I'm no expert on the weapons though so there might be something i've forgotten.

Think I’ve missed the transport on this one but I’ll still add some.

Snowspeeder is one of my favorite ships in the line and have fond memories of this toy as a kid, always in my pocket!!

Added a picture of a early mock up of the Snowspeeder that has different artwork from the production examples. Also note the hand cut and applied bubble to the card with a hand painted first shot Snowspeeder.

Macau Carded variant and the loose Macau variant that differs from the Hong Kong examples although I have found a Hong Kong version that matches the Macau loose Snowspeeder so I’m not 100% sure if they shipped that mold to the Macau factory at the end of the line.

Cheers, these are sometimes hard to spot but hopefully I’ll have some good quality pictures and descriptions to add on all the Die Cast ships.
Something I found in the past week is the Australian Kellogg’s 1983 (late 83) cereal promotion. Has a prize of Die Cast Snowspeeders - 500 in total. 1983 was a long time after the Die Cast line was canned. The made in Macau Snowspeeders were made late in the line and I’ve found the majority of examples in Australia. Not sure if this has anything to do with 500 overstock used in this promotion.
