The Glasslite X-Wing vehicle is a truly wonderful variation compared to its Kenner and European counterparts. With its light grey / silver moulded colour and alternative decals, this X-Wing really stands out from the crowd.
The vehicle is sound motorized but lacks the wiring for light. The red nose light is in fact a “dummy” light that simply sits in the nose recess of the vehicle. Another unique feature of this cool ship is the addition of a “thumb lever” on the lid of the battery compartment. The cockpit canopy has a dark tint to it, though not as dark as some of the European non-electronic versions.
The packaging for the Glasslite Power Of The Force X-Wing depicts a Dagobah background scene along with movie photo stills of Luke, R2-D2 and C-3PO. The ‘Glasslite’ and ‘TV Toys’ logos feature prominently. The box is made from two pieces, one piece fitting over the over (unlike the Kenner versions that have flaps). A white cardboard insert protects the toy. The set, new, would contain the vehicle; x4 laser cannons; a decal sheet; and an instruction sheet.
