Imo, one of the biggest oversights in the vintage line, was the lack of Cloud City playset(s). Sure the Micro Collection had a few, but, for 3 3/4", there was just a cardboard display. Recently, I started thinking, customs-wise, what if Kenner had reused one of their other playsets, to create a Cloud City environment? They'd done it numerous times, 'Old West'/Cantina, Land Of The Jawas/Hoth bases, Ewok Village/Robin Hood, etc...What if the vintage Death Star playset had been reused, with a few modifications, to create Cloud City? I haven't tried sketching any of this, let alone , made any mock-ups, but, what about this... Top level,: still cast in white, but, cannon is removed, replaced by 'Cloud City 'sculpture' or furniture from Han & Leia's room. This level doubles as Han & Leia's room/Dining room/ battle area. 'tractor beam'/elevator/roof recast in bronze or white? 2nd Level: still cast in black, is Vader duel area, cardboard slider portrays carbon Freeze area, maybe with 'window' flaps' allowing figure to fly through 3rd Level: recast in black w/ orange decals, 'trap door' 'becomes 'carbon freeze', 'lowering mechanism' replaces trash compactor. I'd also add some sort of 'gantry attachment to outside wall, below 'window'. Bottom level houses mechanism to lover Han/switch out carbonite; although outside wall could also double as East Platform w/ Slave 1 or Platform 327 w/ Falcon I kinda wish I had the budget and/or skills to pull this off, lol
