Fantastic Playsets of Yesteryear

 While browsing Doomkick, I came across a pictorial review of the best pla yset I never knew existed: 'Computer Warriors Strategic Weapons Base'

This kind of inventive fun is what I wish modern toys had in their designs. Unfortunately, due to production costs and changes in how toys are marketed to kids - 'play sets' have really fallen out of fashion.

It's memories of toys like this as a child that influence me when I design dioramas / backdrops for my custom figure work. If I ever see this particular play set in person though, I'd have a hard time not picking it up. :)
