I do not collect die-cast, so I can't share any with you guys. But I am looking forward to seeing them from other forum members :) I sold mine on the forum years ago ;)

Hi Lars,

Like you, I really hope some other forum members can help out with this one, as I don't collect die-cast myself and hence have nothing to share this week. However, even though I don't collect them personally, I know that plenty of other people do. So to those forum members with this toy, I say please share yours with the rest of us, as we'd love to see them :)

Thanks.

Jeremy

Was this the one with the small x-wing pilot in the cockpit you could remove?
I have no idea, I got 2 of them years ago from a danish childhood lot, but I never checked it and sold them on the forum :unsure:

Maybe some other forum members know about it or have one they will share on the forum

OK, the loose one is again from my childhood. As a kid, from the die cast range, I only had the X-Wing and the Twin Pod Cloud Car.

The carded one is a re-seal I picked up for my carded / boxed die-cast run. They may not be everybody's cup of tea but personally I really like the vintage die-cast (y)

Tremendous! Many thanks for sharing your examples, and well done for being the first person to do so! :)

Although I don't collect vintage die-cast personally, I do like the packaging, and the toys themselves certainly have a charm of their own.

Thanks Jeremy, indeed the packaging certainly pings out to me. I love the carded Die-Cast, not so much the boxed ones (I have a loose with box run of those excluding the bomber) but the carded ones I love. I'll stick up a pick of my run once I've finished my current umpteenth rearrangement of my room 😆🙈

I was beginning to think there was no members left on the forum that collect die cast.

Finally we get some pictures of the die cast x-wing, thanks mate (y)

the re-seal looks fantastic, I like how they use a picture from the movie of the cardback, I never understood why they also did not do that with the box :unsure:

and the x-wing from your chilldhod also looks great, thanks for sharing them (y)

Very nice examples @supergoose!

I did/do have one of these, its possibly at my folks in a real sorry state. I think i have the tie fighter too. The lad across the road gifted them to me when i was a kid as he had become 'too old' to play with Star Wars🤣

Im sure i recall the little pilot was silver/gold tho🤔 perhaps mine was just worn?
