I finally got a Twin-Pod Cloud Car for my Star Wars collection! A couple weeks ago at a toy show in Delaware my buddy Nick and I bundles some stuff together to get a good deal from a Toy Dealer we see at a lot of shows. I got this beauty for $10. Complete with hatches, windows, landing gear, and decals.
Growing up my buddy, Derek, who I played Star Wars with a lot had kind of a junker Cloud Car. We were born to late for the initial Star Wars crazy so both of our childhood collections were made up of yard sale fodder. We didn't have anything complete.
Now I need to dig out two Cloud Car Pilots to man this bad boy. Being a huge GI Joe fan in the 80's I couldn't wrap my brain around the idea that Star Wars vehicles didn't come with pilots back in the day.
I've always loved the Cloud Car but have never owned one except for Micro Machines. I'd love to pick one of these up some day, too! It's just so gorgeous and unusual!ReplyDelete
