BackgroundFrom a 1980 Kenner Toy Fair catalog:
Finely detailed collector's replicas each crafted of Diecast Metal and High Impact Plastic with sleek moving parts. X-WING FIGHTER has a clear cockpit window that opens to show a non-removable LUKE SKYWALKER at the controls. Wings open to attack position and close for landing.
The X-Wing die-cast ship was one of the most popular, making them very easy to acquire today. The wings folded open into attack position and the cockpit opened, though the pilot inside was not removeable.
