View Full Version : I bought a Playskool Set - uh-oh! I'm starting to collect those!

I couldn't resist! They are so cute. - and not easy to find either.
I bought the Episode One set: Maul, Obi-Wan, Anakin, a BattleDroid, and the Naboo fighter.
I totally love 'em. I can mess around with these, while most of my 3 3/4" toys and 12" go into dioramas.
The Playskools are small enough that I could put them on display on my kitchen window sill.
Hopefully, 3 Luke's, a Bikerscout, 2 Hans, Vader, a stormtrooper, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and maybe the Wampa and more will join them all real soon.
Who comes with the E2 set? The Reek, Mace, Anakin, and ???
They are cute!

Theres also a Geonosian in the Episode 2 pack.
I love the Playskool sets also, and I am looking forward to getting my hands on the Reek and Falcon sets very soon, I can't get enough of them.
Anyone know what is coming next?
Secondly, what would evryone like to see? I would love a JediCouncil Chamber set, although I doubt it would ever be made, or maybe a Tuskien Raider camp with Anakin, a couple of Tuskiens and the speeder or the tent. And maybe a Desert Skiff and Sarlacc set with Lando, Leia, JediLuke, Weequay or maybe a Nikto, and maybe even a Jabba, all in Playskool size, that would be cool.

Nothing is planned currently for the line this year. But, Hasbro is really impressed with how well the line sold. So other then the Falcon that is all you will see until next year. Hasbro does intend to do more sets for the line, but you will have to likely wait until the New York Toy Fair, before you hear about any new sets. :)
MTFBWY and HH!!

I personally love these sets also. I hesitated at first to buy them, but then when my son was born I figured I'd pick up a few for him to play with in about 3 years. I love them!!! So far, I have the X-wing set, Naboo fighter set and the Falcon. I originally saw the Endor and Hoth sets at Kay-Bee, but cannot find them anymore. I haven't seen the AOTC sets anywhere yet.
I think the possibilities are endless for what they could make. I would love to see a Playskool version of the Slave I with Boba Fett and a frozen Han Solo.

I havent seen these since they were first released way back in April.They looked awesome,but I didnt have the money at the time and I stupidly didnt put any in layaway.
I cant wait for the E2 set,they look like nice little toys to play with and not worry about paint coming off or easy breakage:D:D:D:D
Bib,How is the X-Wing set?I've been looking for that one;)

Well- Tycho ol' buddy...
I KNEW it was just a matter of time for you! You'd been hinting at the Playskool stuff in many threads in the last couple months. I, for one, can't see myself investing anymore money in the burgeoning lines of STAR WARS products... but these DO look like total winners. Enjoy!!!

Insane Jedi Girl, the X-Wing is great. I haven't taken any out of the packages yet. I'm saving them for when my son gets older (if he's even interested in SW, I'm not going to force him). (no pun intended)
I've really been wanting to open the Falcon. The figures included with that set are fantastic!!! And it has the most features out of any of the sets thus far.
The Naboo fighter, X-Wing and Falcon have been very common in the Kay-Bee's around here. I'm still having trouble locating the smaller sets.

Thrawn suggested these to me a while back and I must admit that he was right, these are fun toys indeed. I'm not getting either of the Prequel sets, so my collection is finally complete now that I have the Falcon. I hope Hasbro actually decides to do a sequel to this line.
I still wonder why Luke X-wing's magnet is faced the opposite way from Luke Hoth and Jedi. :D
The Falcon is a cool set, pretty big too. The stickers were no fun, reminded me why I hate toys w/ stickers you have to apply yourself so much, but the rest of set up went smoothly... oh wait, forgot that the electronics didn't respond to the batteries until I opened up the battery hatch to check their orientation and resealed it. It was startling the first time the R2-D2 sound came on by itself to signal shutoff, I didn't find mention of this in the instructions. I hope there's a way to get more Stormtrooper figures, this one is totally cool.
The X-wing is my favorite set, R2 sits perfectly in his slot, Luke fits in the cockpit even though he's permanently standing, and the opening and closing of the S-foils is a blast. Plus it comes with Playskool Vader who is super cool!

I have all of these but the Falcon and arena. I also bought them for my newborn son to play with in 3 years. I haven't been able to find these anywhere. I got all the others at JC Penny. Any hints on where to pick these up at?

I bought the ANH playset for my niece for her birthday. She loves it! I'm planning to get her the Falcon playset for Christmas.
She's four and already a big SW fan!!

I got the Falcon at KB Toys.
09-17-2002, 04:21 PM
yeah, these things are really groovy... the "super-deformed" versions of all the characters are cool, especially the CHEWIE!!! that one is awesome! they should really start putting just the characters on cards...

Kay-Bee seems to be the only store that I can find these in. I heard Wal-Mart carries them also, but I haven't seen them there at all.
Does anyone know if Toys R Us even sells these?
Also, do you usually find them stocked with the main Hasbro Star Wars items or are they with other Playskool toys?
09-17-2002, 04:28 PM
When Wal Mart had their big SW displays at the front of the stores before AOTC came out, the Playskool stuff was there. That's where I find it at KB, too.
09-17-2002, 11:06 PM
my girlfriend got the first 3 when they were out.She loves them.I have never seen them since but they were with the other star wars stuff and Toys r us have never had them.I don't know why they don't.
09-18-2002, 12:55 AM
Kmart also had some of the sets, they were on the big SW island but that's been taken down so who knows.

I havn't gotten around to buying any of the Playschool sets. I kinda want the Stompn Wampa set. I did see the set w/ Mace, Anakin, Reek and Battle Droid. Looks very cool.
