Congrats on the Muppet backstage set - I agree, they made great playsets for that line. I've also always admired their Piiiigs in Spaaaaacccce set.

That one seems to be popular on the Trek sites.

Saw this at the Museum of Natural History today. Generic 1/18 scale astronaut with 2 lunar vehicles for $9.95.

Picked up the Egyptian Pyramid playset for my Remco Mummy. More on that after I get the pics.

Finally got the pictures of the Pyramid playset I got at the Museum.
Image
This is the base.
Image
Here are the accessories. I comes with 2 vacuform column sections packed one inside the other, a vacuform tomb in 2 pieces-base and lid, a vacuform Ramses statue with a cardboard piece taped in the back to keep it straight, which does not do a very good job, 2 vacuform pieces that are part of the educational element which I haven't bothered with but it has some kind of audio element to it, a mummy and sarcoughagus lid for the tomb, both flat on the bottom, a pyramid cap to hold it together, and 2 jars with animal head lids that are removable.
Image
It also comes with a sticker sheet and a book about the set and pyramids in general, and 2 clear plastic strips which are supposed to hold the sides together.
Image
These last 2 shots show it assembled with my 3.75 inch Remco Universal Monsters Mummy for scale, which is why I got it.

So, with all of the Bat-playsets out there, does anyone else think either or both of these would look cool with a really good Poison Ivy figure?

The top one is the Robin Hood version of the Ewok Village. I don't think the SW version had the greenery on top. The second is from Swamp Thing, also Kenner.

"How do they make such wonderful toys!" and why don't they still? :cry:

In my opinion, the Swamp Thing playset suits Poison Ivy better (with the flytrap), LM.

Sorry, it's hard to know just how big they are sometimes from photos.

I always thought it made a great JLU playset.

As posted elsewhere, I recently got the Helicarrier playset on clearance at a Walmart for $22. The local Walmart I had been watching now has it marked down to $30 and has 1 left. When they first marked it down to $58 they had 8 of them.
That store also has the monster Fisher Price Loving Family dollhouse, which I have talked about here before, marked down from $79.99 to $50. I think this set would make an excellent X mansion, Avengers Mansion, Wayne Manor, or other similar superhero HQ. I wish I had the $50 to put down on it.

Just FYI, on Toyhunter Jordan bought and sold a Flagg. He mentioned that it was 7+ feet long. I think this dollhouse comes pretty close to that.

I suppose those dollhouse mansions would be cool (if repainted to look like run-down haunted houses), to be great places to display 3.75 inch monster/horror figures and such too?
