I didn't have any SW playsets as a kid, so my choices are based on what I'd like to play with now, er, I mean display Smile


1. Ewok Village - looks like lots of playability in this and good opportunities for scene re-creations and photos.
2. Death Star - same as above
3. Death Star Space Station - same as above
4. Jabba playset - too cool
5. Creature Cantina - kind of iconic I think

This one is really tough. Here I go again.

1. Ewok village. I really wanted this as a kid. Looked fantastic with so many playoptions. Never got it though. Have it now, but don't play with it very often Wink
2. Death Star Space Station
3. Imperial Attack Base
4. Jabba The Hutt Playset
5. Turret and Probot

Not really a playset person. They are big for display and take up large amounts of room. Having said that if I had the space my five are:
1. Jabbas playset (the throne not the dungeon thing)
2. The cardboard death star (didn't even know of this until adulthood)
3. The land of the jawas (mainly for the escape pod)
4. The Sears cantina (the cardboard thing for blue snaggletooth)
5. The hoth ice planet (something about the cardboard stuff is just neat)

That's weird that you said that, because I've been looking at them and that appeals to me the most! Looks so cool.

1.) Dagobah

2.) Jabba's Throne

3.) Creature Cantina Action

4.) Land of the Jawas (that damn pod!)

5.) Ewok Village (I would have definitely wanted this before anything as a kid)

A long time ago a guy made some cool custom play sets that he used the escape pod in. It was an interior of the blockade runner. Here is the thread from 2009 when he made them.

Not vintage but a cool custom using the pod.

That is a great custom with good imagination. I like how he chose three different background colours for the boxes and even went to the trouble to make some paperwork to go inside too.
