I loved to display my figures more than actually play with them, so official cardboard playsets were amazing in my eyes.
I never had a playset as a kid either but that picture of the DS on the back of a 20 back card would always fire my imagination. I only started collecting SW in around 1982 so the Palitoy DS had probably flew off the shelves years previously but it still didn't stop me hoping and everytime I visited the toon department store I'd prey there'd be one waiting for me. It was never going to happen so I just used to make my own very naff versions out of cardboard and felt tip pens - happy days
