I just noticed that the Land speeder I brought from the supermarket has a shorter card than the one I picked up from The Warehouse.
Thanks for that. Was wondering the same.
Recently purchased the short card from Countdown ($3:00) and the long card from The Warehouse ($2:00). Had to purchase a few from The Warehouse. I now have a Landspeeder sales yard.

Have to laugh that there's suddenly, a lot being sold on TradeMe for $5 to $10. The Warehouse still has heaps!

Ordered this today,
SDCC 2020 Dagobah Xwing.
The shipping and tax cost more than the ship :read:

Nice. I'm guessing you found this picture on line, and its not in NZ. (Probably will never make it either)

Would like to make a 1:1 Scale of the pram at some point this year. Just working out where to start.

Yeah I'd been looking hard out for a picture for a while and it popped up on The Points of Articulations you tube channel.
I think he's doing a give away soon of the entire hover pram wave as he's hit a subscription goal,il post a link when its official.
I can live in hope this line comes back to NZ stores but it's not just our country that's missing out.

As for your project keen to see what build process you use. Ya thinking 3d printed or old school fibreglass hull and puppet?. An electromagnetic base would be a cool challenge. ;)

Lol. I'm very old school so A/. looking for a large egg like object that I can morph, B/. create a shell somehow using a ribbed framing, C/. night school to learn how to fibreglass (I think night school were a thing of the 90's), D/. convince my wife to let me buy a 3D printer.

Also researching anti-gravity devices, so looking at The Jetsons, Back to the Future, and other early Sci-Fi shows. Mr Google says it can't be done, but obviously it can be done! I seen it in the movies. Failing that, a simple perspex tube, which I do have!

While looking for more information on the hover pram I've found details on HW 2021 wave 2.
