This is one of the most elegant designed spaceship toys ever.
I was not attracted by the functionality of the toy. The sound it produces is really annoying, that's why I never wanted to own this ship when I was a kid...
When I changed my mind, of course, the ship was not available in stores anymore.
I found those two Starbirds (One still in the box) on Ebay some years ago. And I am very pleased to have them as part of my collection today.
