MTV-7 First Shot
Here is a neat first shot example of the MTV-7 mini rig.

A small adhesive square rests inside the cockpit with the writing "# 8US". The notation likely references this MTV-7 within a larger batch of pre-production samples.

The third photo nicely illustrates the body molding differences found in the floor. Additionally, the prototype example (left) lacks copyright information. The apparent differences between the first shot and production toy make this a nice example of an Empire Strikes Back vehicle first shot.
