When action figure playsets first came out they were basically just a stage for your figures to run around on, helping guide imagination but adding very little to playtime.
But then the epic playsets of the 80s and 90s came along and raised the bar for all future playsets, forever changing the way kids played with their action figures.
The playsets of the 80s had molded plastic features, which made them look way cooler than the cardboard sets of the 70s, and they often featured action elements which made the imaginary battles even more fun.
Castle Grayskull is one of the most iconic playsets of the 80s, followed closely by the G.I. Joe Aircraft Carrier and the Star Wars Death Star Space Station playsets, but these sets are low on the list in terms of epicness.
Did you want He-Man to battle in a playset worthy of his massively macho stature when you were a kid?
Then you had to convince your parents to throw down the big bucks for one of the most massive playsets of all time- The Masters Of The Universe Eternia playset, which goes for around a thousand bucks on eBay these days.
