STAR WARS AT 35: BLOCKADE BUSTER!
The first spaceship ever seen in a STAR WARS film: the beloved Rebel Blockade Runner housing Princess Leia, later named the Tantive IV by Brian Daley in the Radio Drama, racing over the planet Tatooine whilst pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, from the original films still stunning beginning.
As a kid back in 1978, I always loved this ship with its hammerhead shark front and massive engine array at the back. I wish they had released it as a Die-cast model back in the day, and that the interior of the craft had been a playset to put my PALITOY Stormtrooper figures in!
