CUSTOMIZER SPOTLIGHT UPDATE: "Custom Star Wars Cardboard Yavin Base Playset" by thecardboardgalaxy

Saving your Christamas money until March can have its benefits.  At least it did for me. Sometime last year I saw this Yavin Base playset up for sale on eBay and at the time I just didn't have the money to purchase it.  I was really excited when I saw that thecardboardgalaxy produced a second playset and had posted it up once more for purchase.  This time I was sitting on a stack of money I received for Christmas and I quickly made the purchase.  Dad fronted me and I quickly paid him back.  I knew I would be getting a quality item from the backgrounds we had purchased from him and receiving his "Death Star Playset" as a gift.

This is a handmade “Hidden Fortress” Playset kit in the style of classic vintage Kenner Star Wars toys with modern aesthetics. It is approximately 16” tall and 20” wide at the base!

It includes several play environments for recreating scenes from the Yavin IV Rebel Base as seen in Star Wars IV: A New Hope, including: Tactical Room, Medal Ceremony Room (with pop-up stage,) Hangar Bay, Ops Center (with tactical screens and a “holotank” table), Temple Rooftop and a Rebel Guard Tower.

It is made from chipboard and cardstock (like the real Palitoy Death Star playset from the 1970’s) with custom-printed details for maximum authenticity. The whole playset easily breaks down into flat pieces for storage and shipping.

The kit I purchased included:

· 3 Wall Panels

· 3 Floor Panels

· Holotank Table Accessory

· Assembly Instructions

This kit is perfect for displaying/playing with your Star Wars action figures, including figures from the upcoming ROGUE ONE movie! It is a simulation production toy, but not a real toy product.

Each of these limited edition “Hidden Fortress” kits are hand-signed and numbered. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! So this is a bona-fide collectible piece of art as well.
