Hey, it worked in a prev. thread so now I'm trying it. . .

It was a spaceship toy, but not from any movie (pretty sure of that). And it'd be at least 20 years old by now.

The forward part looked similar to the cockpit of a Y-wing fighter, but that portion detached from the main body of the ship with a square grey button on the top. I can't remember much else, but I do know that it didn't have any pilot and when you turned it on, it made a static-like engine noise. When you pointed it down, the noise got lower & lower (like it was decending). When you pointed it up, it made a "climbing" noise.

Any pics would also be appreciated. I barely remember the thing.

It was made by Milton Bradley & came out at about the same time as ROM the Space Knight. It wasnt part of a toy line really just a single piece.

I had one of these as a kid, pretty cool toy.

Did that thing come apart at all? I swear I got something like that from my neighbors up the street that you could pull apart into a few pieces. I remember carrying the from canopy around making noises to sound like a TF under my Halloween costume.
