I don’t collect ships or play sets this time round as I just don’t have the space.
Thanks to all for sharing. :D
thanks mate for the very kind words, sorry to read you do not have the space to collect ships and playsets :( Maybe in the future you get more space for it :wink:

Amazing, I just love that box, it looks awesome. Also cool to see you have the inner packing, I am not sure but I think I have an extra instruction. I can check it when I get home :D
Thanks, Lars. That would be great if you did have a spare instructions for the Kenner TIE Fighter. If you do, and you're happy to sell them, please drop me a PM :-). Thanks.
Hi again, sorry the instruction was for the wrong Tie Fighter :(

Great to see a Palitoy stickered example being posted, Andy, especially with the Palitoy instructions as well! Excellent stuff! :-)

Wow andy, this is the first time I see and read about a palitoy white tie fighter as far as I can remember :shock: It looks really cool with that palitoy logo on the box and the instruction 8)

Fantastic story, great that you got it back :wink:

and thanks for sharing the pictures :D

Thanks Lars, and a quick question - why are the figures ages 4 and up, but the TIE is ages 5 and up?

Good question, I have never noticed it before that it says 4 on moc and 5 on vehicles :shock: even as I have been looking at hundreds of moc and boxes :oops: Could it be because of batteries in the tie fighter or because it is electric ? I would say some of the guns on the figures are to small for a 4 year old kid. I think about the Endor blaster and the the cloud car pilot comlink :?

Maybe, but now I have just checked a few other boxes. Imperial Troop Transporter age 4 :? and Cantina Adventure Set age 4 :lol:
Land of the Jawas is also 4 :lol:

But many others are age 5 :shock:

Sometimes I do not know where my brain are :oops: I totally forgot to share pictures of my Glasslite Tie fighter in this thread :roll:

I do not remember how long I have had it but I am sure about that I bought it from a guy in brazil between 2001 and 2005. I learned about this glasslite vehicle in the early 00 and then I said to myself, now I must have such a cool Tie Fighter, I really love the metallic grey color on this Tie Fighter. I do not know if the sticker in the cockpit is glasslite put there from the factory or just from the last owner :? There is no instruction with that sticker and no empty sheet for the sticker :? Also no. 1 is missing on the instruction and on the full sticker sheet :?
