Vintage Star Wars die cast toys


A hybrid card can also be found featuring a SW21 front and an ESB11C cardback. The back is plain blue and features all 11 die cast ships, with the ever present ‘kid-sized’ blasters. So far only the X-Wing Fighter has been recorded on this cardback and potentially only sold in low numbers in Asia. The ESB11D can be found with both Made in Hong Kong (U) and Made in Macau (MB) printed on the cardback. Made in Macau die cast vehicles are rarer than their Hong Kong counterparts and significantly these examples show that the hybrid card was not restricted to just one factory. As yet no examples have been recorded of a Made in Hong Kong no letter example (ESB11D N).
