While a more accurate version has come out since, I like the VHS-colored speeder still.  Note mine has a slight bend on the top engine pylon; this was very common on these toys at the time of release.  It took me months to find one in as good as shape as this one is.

All it needs is C-3PO and R2-D2 in uncomfortable positions in the back, and we're good!

The Luke figure it comes with is useless nowadays, while it is pretty cool, there are several much better versions to buy.
