So for those who went to C3, can you give any feedback on the unproduced toys? You could not make out squat on any of the pics shown. And as far as the proto Death Star Playset. I realize it was only a drawing? but what could be made out on the layout?
Nothing of the sort was said about the Death Star being in development, and there were no images whatsoever.
I think he was talking about the pictures Vic Wertz had at the Collector Panel about unproduced toys. At that Panel they DID have a drawing/plan shown for a DS playset that was planned around 97.
Both JesseJames and I were at that panel, and some of the toys they showed were great! Specifically on that DS Playset though, it was basically a 3ft diameter round ball It opened into 2 halves and inside each of the halves were removable "environments" that could be taken out and played with separately (like removable shelves). There was a Trash Compactor shelf, a DS Detention Shelf, a Falcon Hangar shelf and more.
You could use it as a HUGE diorama, one big playset, or several smaller playsets. So, you basically had a 3ft tall "Death Star" for your X-Wings to fly around OR a kick-ass diorama or a super-fun toy for kids. It was verycool, just waaaaaaaay too expensive to ever get made. It was targeted at a $250 price point! No wonder it never got made.... no retailer thought they could sell it.
