PostSubject: Twin-Pod Cloud Cars - Not twins !!!   Wed Jul 16, 2014 4:37 am

Wondering if anyone has some info on Cloud Cars for me?

Just had a new Cloud Car arrive today in the mail and like any good SW geek I checked for variations immediately !!!

So these are both from Australia but are quite different

One is WAY darker than the other which may be put down to some form of fading BUT the other differences are clear



The manufacturing info is on different sides and has has the same content but in a different layout

My original does not have the dimples on the back-end like the new one

My original has no mold plugs and the new one does

Both made in 1980

Any info appreciated

Many vehicles are like figures with different COO families. Y-Wing, Snowspeeder and Rancor can all be found with diffetent COO markings, these are just ones I have. I imagine there are many others the same.

We did get a lot of Palitoy stuff in Australia and my guess would be that this could be the difference???

Thread revival, Chopper's 'Palitoy' cloud car is not the bright orange usually associated with the Palitoy versions. It exhibits all the other features: CoO, landing gear & seat differences yet is moulded in a darker orange. Anyone else seen this version?

Contact ackbar100 and see if his pbp/poch is darker than a Kenner. See the potb thread here.

His boxed one looks darker, but could be lighting also.
