Here is mine. The Kenner catalog pages also make it look very cool. I always thought this was a underrated toy. I did a post about it http://retrotoyinfo.co.uk/tag/biker-scout-laser-pistol/

Nice Biker Scout pistol! I never collected the large guns myself as a child, but was always slightly envious of my friend who had Han Solo's blaster :-). The Biker Scout pistol isn't a toy you see very often, so thank you for sharing pictures of your excellent example.

Also, I'm curious (and please don't take offence, as I don't mean any), but why do you put a copyright banner across all of your images? They're your images, so you can do what you like with them of course, but I do find it a bit of a shame, as they rather detract from your otherwise excellent pictures, IMHO. If the idea is to advertise your (quite excellent, btw) website, I can certainly see why you might want to do it, but would you consider moving it to the top or bottom of the image so people can enjoy seeing the toys without obscuring part of them? Your collection is clearly most impressive, so I imagine you might well be able and willing to contribute a lot more wonderful images to Lars' brilliant 'Toy of the Week' threads (and my sincere thanks for any that you do share), but I just think it would be a terrible shame if all of your future images were also partially obscured in this way, when no-one else does this with their pictures.

I have always wanted one one these, as Snaketibe has already said they rarely come up for sale,let alone boxed.
Maybe one day!

Here's mine lol!

I bought this a couple of years ago in a shop that gets old toys in every week or so here in the States. It was a good find and cost $50 so I was happy enough to pick it up.

Sorry the pictures not the best but it's all packed up now waiting to be shipped back home.

I posted that picture in another section a while back and it was a forum member who spotted it there, I didn't even notice it :lol:

Oh and there a few Micro World sets in there as well but those might be harder to spot.....or maybe impossible!
