The Jabba The Hutt Dungeon Action Playset(1983) Kenner

This sounds way inkier than it needs to.

This set is just a “reskinned” version of the Droid Factory released a few years earlier. Kenner did this quite a bit with Star Wars toys, repurposing beige, sandy Tatooine play sets for white, snow Hoth sets.
It was a pretty cheap move considering the huge profits Kenner was surely raking in. Funny how we never really caught on or seemed to care that much as kids.

Jabba The Hutt Action Playset
(1983) Kenner

Vintage!!!!

I still have this set!  (except it never had Jabba’s hookah thing.  I always wondered what went in that spot..

I have fond memories of watching ROTJ (on Betamax! taped off of HBO!) and playing along with this set…

Glob, I used to play with this when I visited my grandma as a kid and it was awesome.

I have part of this set. My godfather gave me Jabba, his platform and Salacious Crumb. Best gift everrrr.

It’s official, grandparents love Jabba!

Dude. You rule.

There’s a comic book/vintage toy/movie memorbilia pawn show/antique store in town, and they have literally every vintage Star Wars playset.  Ewoks village.  Hoth.  Jabba’s palace.  The Death Star.  I’m tempted to start going in and buying a piece every week.  An AT-AT would be pretty awesome to have.

If you or anyone in your family has a history of addiction, then I would strongly suggest that you stay as far away as possible from vintage Star Wars toys.

That would have been good information to have known 18 years ago when my dad started buying me Star Wars figures.

szerintem ez a legkirályabb dolog a tumbleren!

[translation] I think it’s the coolest thing on tumblr! 
Thanks!

Turret & Probot Playset
(1981) Kenner

This is one of the best so far.  Probot looks kind of helpless here.  If you’ve ever wondered whether it’s possible to feel sorry for a 30-year-old piece of inanimate plastic, the answer is a resounding “yes.” 

Haha, yeah, this is pretty much all the Probot does, besides blow up of course. It must have had a self-destruct.

merchandisingisforever, stepping up the gif game

thanks!

I kind of want to give it a hug. is that weird?

I’ve felt this way at parties for the last 30 years.

Turret & Probot Playset
(1981) Kenner

I don’t remember Chewie getting into a wrestling match with the probe droid…

Still have it! Pics coming!

Yesterday my dad just handed me a plastic bag with a probe droid head and the turret in two pieces.

I just feel uncomfortable with the word “probot.”  

Nope.  No.  No.  Nope.

Rebel Command Center Adventure Set
(1981) Kenner

Sensorscope R2 is probably my favorite vintage Star Wars figure. I didn’t know it was a playset exclusive.

Yeah, that’s why it’s a bit more valuable. 

No way he captures R2

Bad arse vintage style

That’s some nice-looking packaging.  I love the Tauntaun’s pleasant expression on the backdrop:  he looks like he’d be a good partner to have when trudging around the frozen expanses of Hoth. 

Ha, ha, yeah, that Tauntaun has definitely got a Falcor vibe going on.

this is awesome! i had the one with the turret and the probot.

Imperial Attack Base Playset
(1981) Kenner

My tauntaun doesn’t have a saddle, so it looks like the Rebel is sticking out of the tauntaun’s back. Makes it easier to recreate the post-Wampa cave tauntaun sleeping bag scene, though.

Think I had this one but not with all those extra stormtroopers and whatnot. Only rich kids had those. Rich kids got everything.

I loved playing with this when I was a kid. Loved.

I had many, many figures (stored in a giant Darth Vader bust), but this was the only playset I had. That’s okay, because the collapsing ice-arch action couldn’t be beat anyway.

IS IT JUST ME OF DOES THE 5TH ONE FROM THE TOP LOOK LIKE HE’S HAVING SEX WITH THE TAUNTAUN??

Look close and you’ll see some Tauntaun - Rebel action!

I honestly don’t know what you guys are talking about. Yah pervs!

I can’t unsee that now. Rebel soldier, go home! You’re drunk!

I had one of those and the tauntaun!
(And we weren’t rich….)

Base de ataque imperial no planeta Hoth onde foi o local da Batalha de Hoth um dos conflitos da Guerra Civil Galáctica

[Translation from Portuguese] Base Imperial attack on Hoth which was the site of the Battle of Hoth of the Galactic Civil War conflicts

Why didn’t I ever get one of theeeeeeeese, whyyyyy God, whyyyy
Also the Rebel + Tauntaun are totes grinding
