    The majority of my SW toy collection is the newer Hasbro stuff, but I still have some of my original Kenner figures and playsets which I've been working on to restore to near-new condition.

    I have the Kenner Death Star, which is almost finished, and the Droid Factory, which I'm still working on. If you buy enough incomplete sets and parts lots, you can eventually scavenge enough of the best parts from them to bring a vintage set back to something resembling new condition.

    I don't know why I've always been so enamored with the Droid Factory playset, as it didn't even appear in any of the films. I think maybe it's the LEGO vibe. The Kenner DF Playset is like a Lego set where you can assemble the parts like LEGO pieces and the droids you come up with are Star-Warsy enough to pass muster. Of course, this set came out long before LEGO started their SW line.

    Here's a good DF Playset pic-
