    What's your all time favorite playset?

    Mine is Castle Grayskull the Fortress of Mystery and Power.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    GI Joe Adventure Team Headquarters hands down. I use it as a basis every year for my retro figure Christmas display in my man cave. Tons of memories playing with this.

    I love playsets, this is difficult. I won't deny my admiration for AT HQ, but I only discovered that toy as an adult. All the MOTU sets were cool, I loved Snake Mountain.

    For me it's Mego--and the Batcave edges out the Enterprise Bridge in fondness.

    Super Powers Hall of Justice and the GI Joe RAH headquarters stand out. I know that I’m forgetting something.

    Castle Grayskull was pretty darn good. I received it the Christmas after it was released.

    Honorable mention goes to the Fisher Price Little People Parking Garage. I remember playing with that for hours on end years earlier. ...I wish I would have had the Comic Action/Pocket Heroes Batcave.

    I remember the playset that I was forgetting. It’s the Fisher Price Sesame Street Clubhouse. It was part of their Little People line.

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.

    Awesome! Those are all great classic playsets.

    Anyone else have pictures to share?

    Sectaurs' Hyve and D&D's Fortress of Fangs are great playsets, too.
