Well most of it... Ever since I discovered the world of vintage star wars I have wanted a Death Star Playset. I wanted one that was either complete with box or a price that I was comfortable with that would allow me to complete it.

I found and picked up one today!  Its missing the cardboard inserts, one sticker, and has one broken support, but it has the rope, foam and dianoga.  I've got the foam in a archival baggie with the hopes that will help preserve it.

Regarding the stickers, I'd like to attempt to reattach them.  I was thinking a glue stick might work, although a couple are pretty brittle. Maybe some plain white glue?

Superb addition! Great it has the Dianogo monster too. That play set is going to look good displayed with a few figures.

Always wanted one of these. One day maybe. The plastic and structure looks great and hopefully you can source the parts you need.

Congrats!! Cool Cool Cool

Congrats on the pick up! I love my Death Star. I'm sure you will enjoy yours as well, and get it loaded up with some figures!

I've had very good luck with just a glue stick. Be careful with the ones that are brittle. Shouldn't be a problem to replace that broken support, either.

Thanks all! I actually found one on ebay with an original box and instructions. It was missing some of the stuff I have and had the stuff I'm missing. Got it for a great price. Unfortunately, it was supposed to arrive Thursday. I am 95% sure the seller has sent it but it appears USPS has misplaced it. Last tracking shows it at the Jersey City facility.

If they've gone and lost this.... dalek

Wow looks great! Is a glue stick the preferred method to re apply old stickers?

Not sure about preferred but seems to be the most common and easiest. I have seen many say they use them to reapply old stickers that have fallen off.
