    I am just thinking out loud here, but actually it does seem like the cardboard playsets of yore are an easy and cheap thing to customise/produce for 3 3/4" scale figures, and am surprised there are not more out there. While the Sears ones really didn't offer much added play value, I could easily see someone (Super7 I am looking your way...) taking the stock dimensions of one of these Death Stars and just adding their own art to new cardboard stock. No need to re-engineer any designs or make anything complicated (looking at the Death Star it sure wasn't). Heck, nearly everything on these fits already, even theme-wise, and could be used for the Alien set - just cover up some of the Troopers - I am just w̶a̶x̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶n̶ ̶i̶d̶e̶a̶ yammering on if someone wanted to do it. The walkway already functions as a perfect ventilation shaft! :D There are enough key Nostromo scenes that could be tailored to rooms on the set.

    Soooooooo, who has (even moderate) artistic skill wants to start a production company with me making these for other classic (and unrealised) toy lines? :mrgreen:

    I actually did a quick google search, and shockingly couldn't find anyone who had provided a template for the cardboard. Surely someone must have done this to repro missing parts or whatnot, but I am honestly surprised by the general lack of info/available Death Star plans. I assume the Empire is behind it.

    Great. Now I have divulged my business plan to everyone...
