I've been looking for it but have not seen it. It should be by the figures yes?
I think it's only in Europe.
So far it doesn't look like there are any play sets for TFA. Could be to guard some spoilerific info, but I'm betting we just won't see one.
Well technically they consider the open up Falcon to be a playset. I thought I saw somewhere that there was going to be a huge Star Destroyer also. Maybe Hasbro is still holding off until the film opens?
I'm hoping I might be able to pop into a store when I'm in Spain and might find that paper cutout Death Star playset. I have no idea if they sell it there, but I'll look.
Something that should count as a playset is the POTF 3d diaroma of Jabba's Palace. Purchased this and put all my Jabba thug figures inside and it looks great. You just have to be careful as it is not sturdy to hold a bunch of figures. They easily fall...and into the Rancor pit if there lucky.
This was posted by JediNews - I thought it was an amazing custom. Click HERE to view all photos.
That's a FANTASTIC Death Star custom! I want it! It would be great if it were available mass-market, but I doubt that will ever happen. This playset is too good to be made by Hasbro....
Nice! If I'm not mistaken, that was originally a Cobra Terrordrome.
Ok that's awesome to know! Are those expensive on the secondary market?
PadmeLeiaJaina, yeah, it's one of the more expensive 80s Joe pieces, with prices on eBay typically $200 and up for ones near to complete. Even if you just wanted the basic shell I'd say you were looking at $125-150. pretty expensive for something used in a custom job.
Missed this one earlier. Would've responded "Not in the 80s!". Whatever sad state Hasbro's lines have fallen into today, back in the 80s their G.I. Joe line was as a good as any ever produced.
Well then - looks like I have something new to look for at thrift shops. Although finding playsets of any sort is sometimes a challenge. But hey you never know.
For sure. And because of it's solid construction (vs. the various panels, walls, floors and struts in something like Kenner's Death Star or Hasbro's G.I. Joe HQ) you're more likely to find in tact, if not complete.
Playsets are hard to find. Usually I find Marvel and DC stuff that's all new. Occasionally I'll see something else but I don't see a lot of playsets when I hit my thrift stores.
Yeah, I wonder of that's a shelf space issue? Maybe stuff that big automatically ends up online. Speaking of thrift stores, there's a large retail/restaurant area that's booming near my house and I've been seeing a new building going up from the interstate as I drive to work. Yesterday I got to drive by and it said it was the future home of a Goodwill/Easter Seals store!
Oh yay! Glad to hear you're getting a new junking place! I think my problem is that there are LOTS of pickers where I live. Not a lot of females which is why I can pick up good dolls, but finding really good vintage or other boys toys is hard for me.
Yeah, pretty stoked to have a nice, new big one less than five minutes from home. And Goodwill does good work helping people get job skills. It's a win-win.
That's frustrating. I don't mind competition and sharing, but it's tough to walk into a thrift store and have it turn into Thunderdome .
Ok so these aren't exactly playsets but these came up on Facebook and I thought that they were a nice substitute and really cute shelves that are designed for 6 inch figures (shelves are 9" tall) so you can fit a bunch of little figures and creatures/ships on the shelves. Click to view.
Nifty! Nice variety of environments there to "theme" your collection to.
Ok these are pretty awesome - totally ready for customizing and not expensive cool playset accessories.
Check out this cool paper model set up for 6" figures that you can download.
Anyone snag the new TLJ Snoke star destroyer/BB8 case playset yet? So glad they included a new playset for our 3.75 inch. New sale prices don't seem to be moving it as its heckava expensive.
Saw someone from another SW group I follow post pics on this and it reminded me that I WANT IT BAD. So I found one on ebay for 30 pounds w/ shipping included. Will be on it's way from the UK - WOOT!
Where I'm going to display it when I get it ---- well that's another story....
FYI that lovely never arrived - back to hoping to get one again
Someone posted this in the Star Wars Collectors Group thread on FB - man....looks so awesome. 1/6 scale custom landspeeder. (Although not technically a playset - at this size vehicles count.)
FYI Shopdisney currently has the BB-8 TLJ playset on sale for 153 - then you apply code EXTRA30 and it's reduced to 126!
Several Target stores in my area have it for 110-115.
