    Some of the Ep. 1 Action Fleet playsets would make excellent 3 3/4" playsets if they were just scaled up with a few more accessories thrown in.

    A lot of those JP playsets are just one building with a bunch of electric fences. That's kind of what we're getting with the Arena, a main portion with "fences" or in this case, that cardboard stuff.

    I want a scale Endor Bunker, better cantina, better Jabba's palace, Watto's Shop, Naboo street.

    I didn't see much pics of the Arena. As a matter of fact i've only seen one and it was a REALLY small picture, but from what i'm hearing now, it's going to be another "pop-up-cardboard-smaller-than-it-should-be-cheap-o-playset". Damn shame that Hasbro's wasting our time (and money) with this. They need to think big! They can easily make a big(ger) Arena. It doesn't take that much plastics judging from the trailers. Of course it needs to be scaled down, but it has to be somewhat in scale with the figs. An arena floor is easy, one or two pieces of round plastic, some walls and seats and voilá. And if they are making it a combined set like that crappy Hoth Base where they chucked in some items from the movie in midget golf scale then they are really wasting a good opportunity (again).

    Oh man, this is really frustrating.

    Well, the main portion of the playset is plastic, with 2 big doors, a balcony, and some other stuff. Then there's a bunch of those columns, and some other good stuff as well. Its not all cardboard like the pop-up cantina.

    why playsets?

    I know a lot of collectors really love playsets and want more.... but even 20+ years ago as a kid, the Kenner/Hasbro playsets left me cold. Death Star, stardestroyer, POTF2 detention block, carbon freezing chamber, etc etc.... they always struck me as silly and uninspired. I love the ships and the figures, but always preferred to set them up myself in my own environs than use Kenner's playsets

    I dunno.... maybe by even posting my thoughts on this (and using the old 1 letter=10,000 fans logic) Im screwing the rest of you guys who like 'em.... sorry. but I dont really have any need to see more playsets.

    maybe its just that theyve never made a good one (I really cant think of one I cared for.... PLEASE help me out here (what am I forgetting?)--unless you count the queen's starship, mill falcon, etc--which I love--but I think of as ships).

    IMHO.... Id just as soon hasbro spend its time and money producing new characters (ie additional cantina aliens, expanded universe) and ships (sith infiltrator) than silly looking, kiddie playsets that look better suited to playschool kiddie toys than really sophisticated, realistic, and just plain COOL toys like star wars toyd usually are

    if you wanna see what I think a playset SHOULD look like (and damn straight Id buy it) check out this guys work (got this link of the cutomizing/dioramas forum):

    anyhow.. you are all 2 cents richer.

    peace out.

    Thanks for the link Flembar, but I'm pretty sure most of us can't read French! A little help maybe?

    just click the guy's links in the upper left hand corner of the screen.



    the chambre de congelation is the carbon freezing chamber

    the COCKPIT DU FAUCON MILLENAIRE is the Mill Falcon cockpit

    youll have to figure out for yourself what Barge de Jabba is...


    au revoir...
