Another gap being belatedly filled! Thanks to all the previous posters for sharing their playsets, and my apologies for the late posting of mine.

I never owned an Imperial Attack Base as a child. I was always a 'Turret and Probot' boy myself, as those things were actually in the film, unlike the simply 'made up' Imperial Attack Base! :lol: A friend of mine had an IAB though, and I can now finally admit that it undeniably had better play value than the TAP! I guess that's why the former is a good deal easier to find these days than the latter... It obviously sold a lot more!

It's still never going to be my favourite vintage Star Wars toy (because it wasn't in the film, dammit! :lol: ), but it still has its place. Here's mine:

This was one of my absolute favourite toys.

I loved re creating the snow battles

My attack base still had 40 years worth of dirt and crap on it until the other day.

I've just 'lent' it to a friends 6 year old son so he can enjoy it. They have given it a clean and said it has come up lovely.

It's great to see peoples pictures of them in mint condition

Again thanks for keeping this threads alive :lol: What a beauty that palitoy box is and I agree it has a better play value than the turret and probot :lol: I am glad you finally learned that after so many years :lol: I also never had it as a kid, I did not have any playsets as a kid :(

Thanks for sharing all the pictures of that beautiful set, it looks fantastic 8)

Got to keep people's love of star wars going!

Most of my friends kids have a 1st 12 figure from my childhood collection.
