Yellow really works on this ships box art doesn’t it.
Is it rarer than the other colours? As you don’t see it so often.

I believe it is the less common of the two ESB boxes, but the yellow one isn't truly rare either, IHMO.

Some lovely examples. Great to see you posting on here again Emiel. Your MIB collection would look awesome on Lars’ threads. I hope to see more for sure. :D

I adore the Rebel Transport! I picked mine up loose and second hand in the early 90's at some point - But I have no recollection where. Probably a boot sale.

Nice example, Andy. Like the ROTJ box.

Here's mine- missing the odd sticker, but otherwise complete.

These are mine:

This one I only sold because I lacked the room to store it:

It is the only one that has escaped the black hole of my collecting closet. Like its movie counterpart escaping Hoth.
Amazing sorry to read the yellow box is sold, but the others does also looks fantastic :D I really love that bi-logo box, that is a very cool box 8)

Snaketibe wrote:The Rebel Transport was clearly a very popular toy back in the 80's, and Kenner were very smart to essentially make it into a carrying case for the figures. I seriously doubt they would have sold anywhere near as many otherwise since it wasn't exactly one of the more 'glamourous' vehicles from the film. I can't honestly claim it's a great favourite of mine, but no collection is complete without one!

Here's mine. It's a bit battered, and at some point I'd like to upgrade it, but it will certainly do for now:

Another yellow box, I think it looks fine. I hope you one day will get the chance to upgrade it, if you still want to do that :wink:

This is my second box a euro box but it is not a bilogo log or a tri-logo box. I got the box as a gift from a friend, it was really damaged, some kind of water damage. My friend only collect figures and he got it from a lot that he bought. So he asked me if I wanted the box and as a variant collector I said yes, I was also lucky that I had an extra ship that was missing a box :D So now I have nearly completed the box. I only think I miss 2 gas masks, I must admit I do not know if this is the correct euro instruction for this box, the instruction I found in a lot. But I hope it is the correct instruction.

Thanks for sharing your ships. With such a large vehicle you need lots of space if you're going to have more than one, so well done! :lol: Yours look great :)
