BackgroundFrom a 1980 Kenner Toy Fair catalog:
Outstanding reproductions made of Die-cast metal and High Impact Plastic with moving parts. LAND SPEEDER rides on springy axles for a "hovercraft" effect. Inside are a painted Luke Skywalker and C-3PO.
The Landspeeder was one of the first die-cast vehicles released. Though it didn't have a ton of play value, it scooted along a linoleum floor rather quickly making it an excellent play toy - especially if you had pets. The windsheild of the Landspeeder often came off and is the most likely piece to be lost from the toy.
