The Vintage Kenner Death Star Space Station, an armored space station playset with enough playability to last for hours or several decades for that matter. This playset rocks.
In my opinion this playset is one of the original Star Wars toys Kenner got right. Mego created a similar playset for its WGSH line with its Batman's Wayne Foundation, which was huge, but Kenner's Death Star Space Station covered just about all the bases from the movie and on a smaller scale.
It has been well documented that I never owned this playset when the original set was produced. Jumping on the Star Wars bandwagon after The Empire Strikes Back release date, Kenner discontinued the playset before I had the chance to get one.

Day 26 of my 31 Days to a Better Toy Collection Challenge definitely felt like a big accomplish to put the finishing touches on this baby.
