A friend of mine gave this to me the other day. He found it in a collection of various Star Wars stuff that his uncle had. He's bringing the rest of the collection over for me this evening. Can't wait to see what all may be there. Thought i'd share these two pics though.

Probably not moddable... :silly:

Wow nice find!

I don't think you would want to modify this one, from what I gather they are getting rarer especially the yellow bladed model.
The red "VADER" is still worth quite a bit to serious collectors in good condition.
For a little more info check out this page:

As a treat here is the video of the commercial from way back when! Yoda is a PUPPET!



Thanks for sharing,

Hi again,

A friend of mine had the Han Solo Blaster and the Stormtrooper Rifle from the same era. Both had a trigger but there was a "secret" button you had to hold down as you pulled the trigger for it to fire. Hopefully one of those might turn up, I haven't seen one in over 30 yrs!

Look forward to seeing further pics of the collection!

Is this the one that hums when you swing it (because of air passing through)?!

I had a friend bring the red one over to my backyard once when I was a kid. I had completely forgotten about that until just now! I thought that was amazballz at the time.

Thanks for posting that!

I feel like we (those of a certain age) all had a friend that had this but never had it ourselves, or at least I didn't.

I always wanted one and I remember playing with them in Children's Palace, they had a box display where they stood up like baseball bats.

Brings me back to a simpler time for sure.
