Special Offer Twin Pod Cloud Car
Released primarily to department stores, Special Offers were an incentive to stores to stock special Star Wars items. Each year from 1978 to 1982, Kenner released a number of vehicles, playsets and accessories with Special Bonus figures. The Cloud Car was released in 1980 and is one of the harder Special Offers to track down. The white Bespin Guard was a newly released figure that year and would have come in simple Kenner bag inside the box.

This closeup shows the detail of the offer; there's just something particularly striking about the yellow and red label that makes these pieces very interesting to look at.
