I picked up a Sonic Landspeeder last year that I had to take apart completely to get it to work. I was able to get the motor running, but still having issues with it responding to the clicker. I believe it's the most finicky vintage Kenner SW toy ever made, but it's still awesome.

Great box you have and thanks for the picture 8) I will try to hunt it more now so I hope I will find one in the next few months with a box. Do you know if there is an instruction for it ? just so I do not buy one that is not complete :lol:

Thanks Jeremy. Cool. Though I was hoping for a reinactment of the Mos Eisley Stormtrooper scene as well. :wink:

Yes there are instructions for it, but sadly I don't own any. Capetown's superb thread here is a wealth of knowledge if you wish to know what came with an item: http://starwarsforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3989 :-)

That's not the re-enactment you're looking for!

Thats is great condition, is it sealed, if not have you ever had it out and running?
I love the green and black box, great choice of colours, along with the “speed lines” to imply speed and movement, got to be one lf the best.
Sorry Lars, another one I can’t add to 8)

Thanks. The box is in reasonable condition overall, but I am definitely displaying its best side in that picture! :lol: Sadly it isn't sealed, and there's no inner packaging or destructions either. However, the Land Speeder and clicker are both present and in pretty good shape (see below). One day it would be nice to upgrade it to a 'complete' one, but if I'm honest it's not very high on my list of priorities. Given how much nice complete ones cost these days, I'm quite content with this one for now! As for whether it works, I've never actually stuck any batteries in it to find out! :oops: :lol:
