A regularly updated blog about my vintage Kenner Star Wars toy collection. Some stuff that I've recently acquired; some stuff that I've had since I was a kid. Some rare, some common, but all sharing the warmth, charm and character of the "first generation" of Star Wars toys - the ones we played with as kids in the late '70s and early '80s.

Twin-Pod Cloud Car
The Cloud Car wasn't a toy I originally owned as a kid, and truth be told, it wasn't one that was high on my want list, either. It appeared only very briefly in the movie, and in a pretty undramatic role to boot. But it's an attractive toy for parents to buy and undoubtedly came in at a similarly attractive price point. However, for a bit more money, I'm sure kids would've wanted a Rebel Armoured Snowspeeder instead ;-)
