Vintage Star Wars die cast toys


The Series 2 ships were also released in Special Offer boxes, which included either a card backdrop featuring the Y-Wing, Millennium Falcon or Imperial Cruiser in action. The back of the box featured this ‘In-flight space attack scene’ as well as detailing the action features of the toy. The erroneous ‘Empire’s largest Space Craft’ text was still not corrected on the Y-Wing or Millennium Falcon boxes.


The space attack scene backdrops were folded and placed behind the die cast ship. Each ship was featured in a suitably dramatic fight scene.
