The last playset I miss in my collection before my playset collection is complete. So I hope some of you can help with some pictures
of this fantastic playset :wink:

I got this one in an antique store near me last year. Missing the bottom parts though.

Wow Alex, that box is a beauty 8) I have tried to find one in europe, complete with a nice box but that is not so easy unless you want to pay a lot of money for it :( So how is the hunt going for the parts you are missing ? :D

I definitely have a few spare struts, might have a floor or two too. will check for you.

I have a loose one of these with card panels I printed off myself. It was meant for the kids to play with but I was always worried that they'd break it :)

Thanks. :D They do get expensive and hard to find when complete. I haven’t actually looked into getting any parts for it yet.

Thanks, I really appreciate the offer but I’m not really looking at fixing it up as I like my stuff more or less in as found condition. Just a bit weird that way. :lol: Thanks again though.

Yes, it's a Kenner Canada box. :D

My trademark blog content is photos with figures set up to replicate the photos on the box. It's great fun (especially with toys like the AT-AT that have over a dozen figures in the box pictures) and readers do seem to get a kick out of it :mrgreen:

Cheers
