I've lost mine, bought it (Actually my parents did) when I was 10 years old and it was the coolest thing. But I didn't quite treat it as a collectors item ;-)

Good, these should be played with if given to kids. I've never understood why anyone would keep things mint in boxes. Where's the fun? They won't ever sell then anyway!

I've actually had three of these. Got the first one new in '77 (I was 9 or 10) but basically ruined it with play. So, got a second one which I still have. And now I have a third one from a more recent release, which I keep in the box, on a shelf in my office.

Still, these images look like storyboards from the movie, to me, and not like sketches or designs for the toy.

Just sayin'...
