April 6, 2016 - Question of the Week: The Playsets That Could Have Been!

If you could design ONE playset that has never been released by Kenner, what would it be and what kind of awesome features would it have?!

Jabbas palace. With rancor crushing door, dungeon area, droid room, and a thawing carbonite solo.

Tatooine homestead with exclusive Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru figures and 2 charred Lars figures, realistic flame thrower attachments for stormtroopers and sachets of food colouring (later found to be toxic) for authentic blue milk. The perfect place to park a landspeeder and would fit well with the Land of the Jawas. Very Happy

I'm going with Tusken Raider Playset that includes a Bantha! Laughing



Two (maybe three?) huts with extra pieces like water jugs and fruit baskets out front. Other aspects that reflect that nomadic lifestyle such as stones and wood bundles for building.

I'd hang their weaponry on the side of the huts and the entrance to the huts would be made of cloth (because all cloth/ leather would be way too costly for Kenner Crying or Very sad).

There would be a center campfire and maybe a trough and water for the Bantha. lol!

I'm sure @hellhippie is going to jump on this idea Stormie Smiley

Hmmmm any playset and kenner will make it... thinking something like this...



The womans day hoth rebel playset...totally awesome. I would have a removable roof (so it had a proper hanger look) and the shutter doors to the hanger would be at the front of the set.

Inside would have a control centre at the back (like the pic) and on the left side I would have a tuan tuan stable instead of corridor and the rest for an x-wing- accessories ladder for x- wing, white ice blocks (plastic) for collapsable wall, a hoist for lifting R2.

Extra feature I would add, you can take take the tuan stable wall out and then fit the falcon in the choice would be yours--- x wing and tuans or falcon awesome

Sarlacc Pit.. :Drool:

How did I not think of that! That'd be sweet. Imagine the replay value! Poor ol' Boba.

Some excellent choices here!
I'd go for an Endor Chase set which would include two speeder bikes in baggies and four baggied figures - Luke and Leia poncho, a Biker Scout and Paploo (the Ewok in the stolen speeder bike scene). The playset base would be made of plastic modules to clip together to keep the box size compact at point of sale. It would include clip-on trees and Ewok hiding places and traps, as well as a deflector shield generator. The set would be marketed alongside the Ewok village and existing Empire vehicles like the Speeder Bike and AT-ST to create the ultimate Endor experience.
