The Vehicle Maintenance Energizer 'Toy'.... Hmmm, I think you'll struggle to find many children or collectors that hold this one high in their lists of vintage favourites. It might be a toy of something that was actually in 'The Empire Strikes Back' (a fact which surprises a few people, since it's not exactly prominent in the film), but it's also quite possibly the single most boring toy Kenner made in the entire vintage line. I can't even be bothered to criticise it any further, it's so tedious!

Here's my unused one:

Nice mint set and thanks for sharing it mate 8) I agree it is a boring set and it was a set that I first learned about in 2001 :lol: I think it is ok that there is a set to repair and fuel vehicles like the x-wing etc. etc. but as a few other items like anakin etc. etc kenner could have used the time to create a better playset and better figures :D

A 'great toy'? Really? My sincere congratulations for managing to think that! I've always considered it a major dud, but if you like it then excellent! I'm glad it has some fans out there! :lol:

I loved it as a kid, ok its not up their with the AT-AT or X-Wing! But I loved it because it was different from anything else and you actually had something to fuel your ships. I had a lot of fun setting it up. :)

Wow nice army of engergiser, Great to see a lili ledy and some huge original boxes for many energiser, so cool. I have never seen that Jigsaws before, not even in our Jigsaws thread :shock: thanks mate for sharing your fantastic collection :D

Any pictures of what is inside the lili ledy box ? is it different ? maybe the stickers are not like the kenner stickers ?
