Finally I found some time to add my little AST-5 collection :D I never had any AST-5 when I was a kid in the good old 80s. But I wish I have had one in the 80s because I think it is a cool vehicle even for kids :D

I don't collect mini-rigs myself, but that's another nice collection you have there, Lars! It's great to see different packaging for the same toys, so thank you for sharing :-)

A little update, today I got this Tri-logo AST-5 with the mail. It is made in spain and I must say I am surprised about that there is a bigger difference
between that one and the kenner and the Meccano/Clipper vehicle. There is only very little difference between the Meccano/Clipper and the kenner vehicle. But the tri-logo have black guns, it is a no coo and the stickers are much darker the details is not so good on the tri-logo than on the Meccano/Clipper and the kenner :shock:

A full run could be cool, I only miss one but I think that one is hard to find :? I really hope you get a full run in the future and that job :wink: I am also slowing down in buying star wars, I need a house but first I need more money for it after I talked with the bank a few days ago. I thought we had the money but the bank want us to have more money, new government law :roll:
