Original Vintage Star Wars 1978 Uk Death Star Playset Palitoy Boxed + Complete:
STAR WARS - UK Death Star PlaysetOriginal Palitoy 1978Boxed and completeStrong colours
This set is in amazing condition for its age and size. No fading or colouring.
The box is very sturdy and has kept its shape. It is complete and shows only minor wear from age. The main front and back surfaces are in excellent condition. The right hand side opening flap has some creases and two minor tears with edge damage. One of the tears is about 3 inches along the seam of the flap. The box still has the original shop price sticker. This Death Star box is better than any I've seen for sale online.
All of the playset parts are original and have been well looked after. The set is complete with all plastic clips, gunner seat, two guns, plastic gunner canopy (which has yellowed over the years) and trash compactor shute. The door to the trash compactor has come away from the frame at some point (common to these sets) but isn't ripped and still fits snuggly into place. There are a few creases to the cardboard sections, but all complete and not showing and rips or tears.
The instruction sheet is also included along with half a spare clip that holds the set on the circular base.
The set does show some minor signs of play wear as you'd expect with a cardboard set.
***The only things missing are the six circular stands for the action figures. These can easily be picked up online if you don't have any.
It has been stored carefully in a smoke-free home and was last constructed over 10 years ago.
Because of the size and delicate nature, this has been packed with lots of bubble and secured in a strong cardboard box. It will be sent fully insured and trackable.
Please keep an eye on my other listings for more vintage Star Wars items.
Free collection available from Pollokshields, Glasgow

I've been asked for more info about the box... The right hand side opening flap has some creases and two straight tears where it joins the box side at the front. The first runs along the seam/box join for three inches and the second runs from the flap bottom up for two inches. The top right corner of the box also has a small tear which isn't noticeable and doesn't alter the overall box shape. This right hand side opening flap is the part that is most worn and has a reinforced piece of card on the underside. This looks like it might have been manufactured this way or added at the time of purchase as the card looks old. There is some clear celloptape across the other flap, again this may have been factory added but has certainly not been added within the last 12 years. All flaps are complete and there are no touch ups, unless the reinforced card flap and cellotape seal aren't original. No paint or inking to the box. The instructions are double sided and aren't a strong clear print, I'm not sure if this is how they used to print them but I'm not aware of them being a copy/repro.
