|Laser Rifle Carry Case|
The goofiness of that description only serves to underscore the relative lameness of the Laser Rifle Carry Case-- the folks at Kenner must have been trying to compensate for its drawbacks. It was capable of holding fewer figures than any other Kenner storage case, including the many versions of the vinyl collector's case. It also looked plain goofy. I don't know how else to put it.
Apparently, Kenner planned for this to be the primary storage case in their post-1985 Power of the Force range of toys. It was shown in POTF packaging in their 1985 catalog, but the line ultimately failed and this version of the toy was never released commercially. (The C-3PO Collector's Case, on the other hand, was planned for release in the Droids line.)
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Laser Rifle Carry Case is fairly scarce; few of the items seem to have been sold at retail. It's also never been overly popular with collectors.
First Issued: 1984 (ROTJ packaging)
