As far as the initial post, yeah, for $60 I'd want a better bos, and I've had some vintage yellow, but have yet to experience it becoming "brittle"

I still have mine from when I was a kid.

The problem is that the upper shell seems to have yellowed A LOT and gotten brittle. It has snapped in a couple of spots.

Anyone else experience this?

Ohhhhh yeah.

I won a boxed one in Hamilton that was shipped to Toronto.  It took hours to glue the pieces back together. :(  My one previous to that had a paperback book fall off a shelf onto the top.  Bye bye top section.

Definitely a cool piece and I would have appreciated it as a kid.  Now, it's just a big yellow fragile turd. ;)

That's too bad about the smash-up. I have taken to keeping mine on a top shelf. I don't click the top section to the bottom anyomre, but let it ust rest there.

I wonder if there is anything to rejuivenate old plastic like that. Like some kind of oil product.  :P

I've wanted one of these for ages :(  It is one of the few toys that I never had back in the Vintage days and is now the only one I do not own in either it's original Vintage form or a rerelease :(

I just got nice one recently for a pretty good price on ebay, along with a vintage snowspeeder w/ box and a Hoth Imperial playset - all for $50.00 in one auction.

The snowspeeder already went to a friend, but the rest will be customized.   :)

I picked me up one of these transports today in a thrift store for 2$...it's yellowed, not broke...but can't say if it's complete or not since I can't even remember this being released when I was a kid getting all the sw toys(well, not this one). Additionally I got an incomplete M. Falcon for 1.50$ and an 83' speeder bike,Eu mini sail barge, and a wind up ATST.

Almost shot the wife because she didn't grab the 4$ bag of vintage figs with guns and the cloud car, b wing, and vader's tie >:(!  I offered the lady 20$ for the bag and she said "no, it's for my grandson"-imagine no articulation figs for a kid in this day and age >:(

Anyway it's yellowed and I don't know what's complete with these...it has a top gun, no bottom hatch, all the covers are there what else was there....I guess it's my money's worth ::)

...edit... I merged the 2 Rebel Transport topics and your posts in each... Jesse  :)
