Question the best playsets? 95-present

what is your favorite kenner or hasbro made playset? (not including vintgae, there were alot)

im not talking the cardboard standups, im talking plastic. mine would have to be either kenner hoth (but i dont have it )
or maybe the freezing chamber....maybe the death star detention block?

the hoth one looked nice, but i'll have to go with the arena playset because it was larger and pretty detailed.

Hoth! I played the hell outta that thing. I had a whole board with cotton glued onto it and had that there and boy did I have fun. Next would be the the Freezing Chamber. One of my best scenes there.

Cantina and Jabba's Palace are indeed playsets but you said no cardboard so I won't include those.

The above 4 2 are my favorites

I liked the dention block one (I think that was it, with the gunner stormtrooper)

Never had it, but always wanted it.

I had the chasm but I lost all the pieces to it when playing. Damned thing wouldn't stay together. I got the detention block for 3 dollars nearly complete with no box though and it looks great with my PotF2 Han mailaway, Luke stormie, and Leia in there.

Wish they'd make an army builder for Chewie . I need him in that scene, the skiff scene, and my Endor scene. I have all the appropriate ones for Jabba's Palace (PotF2 captive), the Freezing Chamber (Saga Bespin), and Hoth (PotF2 Flashback/ Saga Hoth 4 Pack).

Speaking of Endor (read carefully above, I said it somewhere in there) I wish I had that playset for my pathetic Endor scene. I never asked for it because Endor was (and still is) one of my least favorite scenes and saw no reason to play with it.

As for Stewie, I just saw Family Guy for the first time last weekend when a friend told me to watch his Volume 1 DVD set. I couldn't stop watching them

Don't be an idiot..... OPEN THEM! They don't display well in the box and you do need it to make your Jabba scene to even come half way to be as cool as mine

Just kidding, you have more figures for that scene than me at the moment, though I'm not sure you opened them.

Nah, I have everything save for those three. That's the Jabbas Dancer 3 pack, the 3 Wal Mart Max Rebo Band sets, the original mail away Bomarr Monk, Ephant Mon, Amanaman, PotF2 Boba Fett, Yak Face, Ree Yees, Greedo, Tessek, Rancor Keeper, Bib Fortuana, C-3P0, Leia Slave, Leia Boushh, Lando Skiff, Chewie Slave, Globba Jabba, Salacious Crumb, and down below is the Rancor gobbling up a Gamorrean with Oola and Luke awaiting their turn. I plan on getting those two new guys with the new Jabba and another Gammorean for the actual palace

Beat that. Oh, and don't get me going on the Cantina

http://www.galactichunter.com/absolu...=2441&zoneid=7 (finally ends) has an interesting rumor about 1/3 of the way down about the hoth and endor playsets being re-released w/possible pack in figure. sounds good to me!

I wouldn't put too much faith in that stuff. I haven't heard anything about it and they usually have more at Toyfair than what is actually released. A Vader Carrying case would be awfully cool though since they didn't make a PotF2 one. I have the 3P0 one and love it

the only reason i don't really doubt it is because this seems to be the year of the repacks, meaning anything like that cuold be possible. I think its a good idea cause i never got the sets when they came out and i've always wanted them.

Ooops, I have some Jawas in my Jabba scene too. Sounds like we're pretty much even. I got some stuff you don't have and vice versa. I plan on getting all new stuff of course and the skiff guard 3 pack (unless the TRUS 4 pack will have them all, I'll get two of those )

And as for repacked playsets, I don't mind that too much. I'd be kinda pissed that the 40 dollar Hoth and 30 dollar Endor playsets plummeted in price but then again am I selling this stuff?

OK, those are the two scenarios. There are a few others I can think of but frankly they don't apply to me. Erm, yet. >.>

No no no no, I the exact quote was "F*** you biatch, I got him Jorg!" If that was on MSN, it was logged. Oh wait, my PC is kaput so I'll never see that again! That convo was hilarious.

Anyhow, my Jabba scene got upgraded alot. See the other thread to see what I all got
