I had a 24 inch tall Darth Vader in the box unopened( wish i still had that) and his T.I.E. (Twin Ion Engine) fighter from Monogram (wish I still had that too) and a Monogram X-Wing with R2D2 in behind the cockpit ......................(no loss Im not a Skywalker guy)
They lost me with the teddy bears knocking out Stormtroopers
You know the ILM modelmaker used the wings of Vader's TIE kit to make the wing of the TIE Bombers filmining mini ? They also used a lot of the MPC/Monogram X-Wings for the final battle of Return of the Jedi (for background).
