First item for week 6 the Imperial Attack Base :D I love this playset, I never had it when I was a kid and I never saw it in Denmark for sale :(

I have had this box in my collection for more than 15 years, it is not perfect. But it is good enough for me :D

My is mint in box, I wanted best example I could find. The accessories sealed in bags. I am in two minds about this playset. In the box it looks nice. Loose and when it gets discoloured or dirty, it just looks like an unsightly lump of plastic.

I like the little playset features, where you flick to collapse the snow bank and command post. On the other hand, it is just a big lump of white plastic. Something says to me Kenner tried their best, but at the same time didn't quite pull it off.

Both sides of the box are shown.

I never had any playsets as a kid but I’ve always liked this one and would have loved it. I just think the plastic base is so cool. Good play value and also a great display piece for collectors, an instant diorama. I would like a loose one when I have more display space.

The image is of a transparency of the figure that I own, still nice but no hard copy :)
