Thanks, Andy. It's always great to see another Palitoy box, and by the looks of things you have the instructions to go with yours, so well done for that.

Thanks for sharing :-)

That's great box and a very clean toy, Lars. Thanks for sharing :-)

Also, I have learned something new, as your Kenner box calls the toy the 'Turret/Probot Playset', whereas both my Kenner and Palitoy boxes call it the 'Turret & Probot Playset'. Yours was not a variation I was previously aware of.

Every day's a school day in this hobby! :-D
Thanks mate for the kind words :D Wow I did not see that the names of the playset is different :shock: You have the eyes of a variant collector :lol:

Nice palitoy box andy 8) even as it is a bit tatty then I am sure many collectors would be happy to have a box that looks like yours :wink: I would be happy if I just had a palitoy box :D

Nice probot after thinking about it, strange that you have to buy the playset in the 80s just to get a probot :?

£40 for a loose one :shock: that is crazy :shock:

Hi guys, here is my Turret Probot Set.
I also bought a bagged Probot a couple of years ago. I was told they are overstock. No idea if the Probot was bagged in the original box, but I thought it looks good so I left him bagged, have another one for the playset.

What a lovely looking set. The box (another one of the 'slash' rather than '&' variants) looks in beautiful condition!

Thanks mate for sharing your playset, It looks fantastic :D I love the insert for the playset. This must be the first time I have seen the insert for this playset :D

Yes its kind of a weird insert, took me a while to understand how to put it all together. With the Probot pin sticking through the insert, so does the tin of the turret top ... That might be a reason why you havent seen them before - probably drove the kids mad, hehe.

Definetly!!!
Some are clearly "bulid" to store / put the stuff back into the box, but some ... like the Kenner "Land of Jawas" what pain in the *#++ (just wrestled with it the other day ).

So I finally got me some Palitoy destructions! :wink:

I've been after some instructions for ages to complete my Palitoy 'Turret & Probot' set, and I am pleased to say that I finally have some!

I'm still looking for a Palitoy boxed version too. The Palitoy boxes I see on ebay usually look pretty horrible though.

By the way, Lars that's the first time I've ever seen the Turret/Probot variant. Thanks.

Here's my Kenner version. Also a relatively recent addition.
