    Great toy ads, especially for Ghostbusters and that X-Wing from Star WArs! Great to see the Supermobile as well, I had that, you pressed a button and the fists shot out the sides! 🙂

    Amazing! I had one of those Corgi Superman vehicles! I got it from a stall at the Barrowlands that used to sell a range of Star Wars, Star Trek, and comic book stuff. I also had an X-Wing (Kenner variety) which I may well have got from the same place.

    Hi TVTA, another Kenner X-Wing owner reporting for duty! I had this one too and it came with the regular orange squadron decals but also a set of vinyl semi-transparent stickers that had battle damage details on. You could stick these over the normal decals and make it look like your X-Wing was damaged but I wish I hadn’t done it to mine as when applied they didn’t look as good as they should 😦

      Yes, the battle damaged version which came at the beginning of the ESB line. I’ve had both versions in my time along with the European non electronic and the US electronic sound and light, and also a Euro grey version and a Brazilian Glasslite grey/silver. The X-Wing truly is an iconic toy as it was among the first three vehicles released by Kenner with the TIE Fighter and Landspeeder.

    You are an artist sir, don’t mind those who say otherwise.
    Cause what is art if not the ability to converse with our inner selves?
    And that’s what you are achieving.
    ( I haven’t forgot what I’ve promised you, I still haven’t had the op to do it)

    Nice selection… I still have Playmobils from when my brother and I were kids… I noticed the new Playmobils are totally different. The first, old versions were far better. Thanks for sharing!. Best of luck ❤
