The White Witch vehicle was featured in the very first TV episode of Star Wars: Droids - The Adventures Of C-3PO And R2-D2 from 1985. Even though we knew of photography which showed the vehicle and therefore Kenner's intention to produce it, but it was unfortunately never released. After years of research not even prototypes were found, until now!
From Star Wars extraordinaire collector Gus Lopez:
"This piece is a significant discovery for Star Wars toy collecting. It’s the White Witch vehicle from the Droids series, which was designed but never produced for that toy line. We know from Kenner photography that Kenner made at least a few samples of these, but for many years collectors did not know if any of those samples still existed. This prototype is the same one used in some of the Kenner photography based on photo matches. To make this find even crazier, it’s pictured here with the hard copy Thall Joben and a protomolded Jord Dusat figures that were also in that photo shoot. Those two figures were traded to me by a couple of friends who really did me a favor in reuniting this set!"
This is an amazing find, have a look at the image below:
What an amazing find Gus and congratulations!
