The room is FINALLY coming together.

 Here's a shot of my Death Star fully equipped. Mix of Vintage and Modern figs throughout.

Got it off ebay a couple years ago for about $175. Ironic that when it first released in 1978 it was only ~$30!!

Now you really made me regret not buying one... a store owner offered a near-mint DS to me back in 2003 for "only" $100!   :mad0218: Ah just as well, I love the nostalgia aspect of the Kenner playset but it didn't really capture the concept of the Death Star from the films that well (worked great as a toy though).  Today I would probably just strip the playset down and stick in more modern diorama pieces to try and recreate the interior of the Death Star more accurately.  Maybe even repaint the interior as well...

It was a brilliant toy and was the centre-piece of my sw playing as a kid. It had HUGE play value. Mine got destroyed over time due to use. I am dying to get one to replace the one i had as a kid. Maybe next year...

Northern Solo, you have the foam for the compactor?

I still have my death star, no foam though. And some of the clips are broken, but other then that, good conditional.

The foam and monster are intact and compactor and elevator both work. Stickers are a lot worn out on consoles, and I'm missing 1 strut on the bridge level and no cardboard inserts for the lower levels.

  All things considered, it's in remarkable shape.

I was going to say "those look familiar"!  :)` Glad they have a new home (pretty much how they were in the old one so they shouldn't have any adjustment problems  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:)
