Just got a MIB Big Jim European "Secret Headquarters"--part of the Spy series.

It's incredible! Many here know I love playsets, & this one does not disappoint. It is like a Mego "Wayne Foundation" for Big Jim (actually, it's a reworked Barbie Townhouse).

*3 feet tall, 3 floors with roof helipad--it's quite heavy, the floors are made of masonite.

*working central elevator; each floor has two rooms: armory, gym, communications, map room, shooting range, & garage.

*tons of accessories: free weights, tables & chairs, map, telegraph & headset, weapons rack & mortor, garage shelf with drawers, toolbox, tools, & extinguisher


I want badly to assemble it, but I don't have the space.

Nice one and congratulations! If you ever do assemble it, please post pics--it sounds awesome, and I don't think I ever knew it existed before your post.

At least have the fun of setting it up, and mucking around with it.

Unfortunately, I have a feeling it doesn't disassemble.

Mattel did a fantastic job IMO of repurposing Barbie stuff for BJ.

I have Prof. Obb, I need to work on finding the other 004 Spy figures.

The HQ would work very well with PACK also, I think.

Glad to see someone here bought that. It was beginning to haunt me on Ebay.

I passed on it several times for the same reason - I would have to open it, but don't have the room.

Can you post pics of the box?

Yes, I will see if I can get pix of the box--it clearly shows the assembled HQ.

I think there is another one on evilbay right now.

The seller had the cool modular Space series BJ playset as well a few weeks earlier, but I missed out on it :-((
