Looks like klaatu for one and imperial Hoth trooper for the other if your going by the box photos.

Bonus question..

Which vintage vehicle has featured (that I know of) five different action figures in the cockpit. This can be either on the box art or on official vintage advertising showing the toys.

For example you could say the MTV 7 as above (Snowtrooper correct pilot) and add that you've seen Dengar, Fett, Yoda and a B Wing inside it as well)

So, name that vehicle, and bonus points for naming the five different figures! (there might be six but I can't find the ad with this character right now)

Darth Vader's Star Destroyer Action Playset - Does that count as a one big cock pit? Laughing

Darth, Stormtrooper, IG88, Bossk, Boba and Death Squad Commander figure as the hung guy.

Just to thrown a cool advert related thingy... Did you know there's an alternative advert photo with Leia Tied/Hung upside-down instead... didn't know that until 2 mins ago:

It's not the TIE.


Craigy - An interesting idea to use the Death Squad Commander as the person hung up instead of say Leia original. You wonder if he was a traitor to the Empire or he just messed his orders up and enraged Vader?

The answer to the vehicle is the X-Wing Fighter.

Who can name the five vintage figures (that I know of) that have been pictured in the cockpit either on box artwork or official advertising?

Why would anyone other than Luke be in the X-wing fighter? That makes no sense to me.

OK - based on the fact that I am guessing the X-wing came out before the actual X-wing pilot came out... I recon two of them would be Han Solo (Original) and Luke Skywalker (Farm boy)

Craig - I was thinking Han Solo as well - sure I've seen a pic of him in the X-Wing but can't find it...

Anyway, here are the certain ones...

Luke Skywalker Farmboy - was the first figure seen in the cockpit and as pictured on box art





Then there was Luke X Wing Pilot



There was even Luke Bespin




And, erm, this guy...

unsure



Then there's this one, which kind of looks like Luke X Wing but maybe with the head turned around?? Also looks a bit like the B Wing pilot. I honestly can't tell what figure this is...
