And they're always on ebay for $130 bucks. I mean, sure, it's a huge playset but even a toy junkie like me has limits.

If I wasn't collecting other things I deemed higher on my list I would snag one when they go for about 80 in the box. Just to have a complete one.

Good lord VS. You can pretty much build about half of New York Metropolis out of those Spiderman sets. :mrgreen:

Anybody ever try building you own sets of something other than paper craft? I picked up a few MOTUC figures (at a flea market of all places) and am considering a proper custom GraySkull. It would have to be huge but awesome. I've also been thinking about giving a shot at a Fortress of Solitude.

Nothing that worked but I have thought about that FoS, rolling over ideas for making those crystals.

Sort of. I like to customize playsets. I have plans for a FoS, using some of the crystals from the Christopher Reeves figure display and some old Hoth playset pieces. I'm doing some repainting and adding stickers to turn the MEgaman Dr Wiley's Lab playset into a section of the Justice League Watchtower. I do have a rough idea for Grodd's/ Luthor's Hall of Doom interior but that's pretty far down the list at the moment,

I'm always looking for a 3rd Daily Bugle for myself.

I have a couple of ideas for a Fortress backdrop but nothing solid yet.

The X-Men Danger Room with a little work would make a nice Satellite backdrop for the Justice League.

I've finished customizing the Spawn Garage.

Image

And since I like to use my toys to expand my JLU collection, I've customized the brick wall as well.

Image

And I think it works quite well :)

I just saw it posted in the Young Justice Finds/Discussion thread that Matty has canceled the YJ lines. Personally I think including playset parts with the figures is a great idea, but it has yet to be properly executed. Playmates bridge for Trek was good, but remains incomplete because of poor planning on their part. Mattel seemed to be doing better by limiting the parts to a single wave, but have yet to get a complete wave on store shelves to complete the set. I have to say I was afraid of something like this happening and yet again Mattel lives down to my expectations.

CCC.

That was Art Asylum, they were making the Enterprise figures.

nope. Playmates made a "build a bridge" with their 3 3/4" ST movie figures. I thought that AA finished theirs. :o
