More exciting retro STAR WARS goodies here!

They were produced by Kenner between 1978 and 1980, and were high-quality reproductions of the many spaceships and vehicles that appeared in both STAR WARS and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK films. 

Kenner made eleven of these models in metal, and what they called 'High Impact Plastic', to create these classic toys.

This  X-WING FIGHTER  was one of the original releases in 1978.

The fantastic  MILLENNIUM FALCON  came out in 1979, a year before The Empire Strikes Back appeared on the screen.

Also out in 1979 was this superb  Y-WING FIGHTER , which helped the Rebels destroy the Death Star in the original film. It has a bomb that can be released at the bottom and even has detachable wings!

Next up are two models that both appeared in The Empire Strikes Back and were brought out in 1980.
The bounty hunter Boba Fett's  SLAVE I .

And the  REBEL ARMOURED SNOWSPEEDER , that gallantly battled against the At-At Walkers on the ice planet of Hoth!

They are all for sale and will be on my stall at the GIANT TOY COLLECTORS FAIR at Shepton Mallet on 25th March!
