It's wierd. The image in my head now, is of a giant Ark. But obviously that could not be.

I know I'm in the right ballpark on the price. Though the mini bases are really nice and would fit the mental image better than Fort Max, were they $70ish and on the shelves in '89?

:BOT: I don't remember that costing $70. (If it were, my parents wouldn't have bought me it!). For some reason, I remember it as $20.

On a side note, this got me thinking about GI Joe's Defiant playset. I'd kill to own that thing. But I don't have the space for it. :CON:


I didn't even think of The Defiant but that definitely fits Bonger's description of it being huge and Ark-like and probably would have been around $70 as well. Good call, SC!

Hell yes, I'd love the Defiant as well. But the space! Where do you put something that big?
