Only playsets I had were the Air Defence and Checkpoint Alpha. I wanted the MCC REAL bad, I'd sit and stare at it in the Argos catalogue (like, Sears, I guess?) repeatedly in 1989 or 90 when it came out over here.

I wrote a load of fan-fic following the comic and set in the 1990s. I also used Action Force, the Argentine and Brazilian exclusives, the Joe Canuck characters and one story even uses Action Man and Natalie Poole.

Lucky you, I imagine the joy of opening this gigantic box. The defiant is somewhere in my list one day... Good story though! I bought my flagg in the states and took it back to Canada. I had a huge box behind me and the custom officer looked at me very weird when I told I had a aircraft carrier with me (yes I had to declared it ;). Probably my third fav playset.

Damn they are sweating a bit methinks.

That is some sweet, sweet extras being thrown into the mix.  I would imagine 5 figures, all carded, at the base price should be enough to get a bunch of people off the fence.

Well I got the Flagg for Christmas.......so of course that is my favourite.

Second would be the Defiant.  I actually got one about 15 years ago complete and in great condition so it was a joy to......enjoy as an adult.

I did not have any playset growing up, just figures and a few accessories. The MCC was always a favorite of mine since it was huge, lots of play value and also it can function as vehicle. The introduction of the MCC in the comic is awesome! Anyway, I found one online almost complete for a reasonable price which spark again my interest i  it.

The surveillance port is more for diorama. I got a lot of vipers (new ones from the viper pit), so they look fantastic together.

How about you?

I love the MCC... It's huge, man!!! I also like the surveillance port, very well designed toy and lots of play action - packed in a very small factor.

As the title says I'm interested in what is your most favourite gijoe/cobra playset and why? I never had one growing up, (I mostly made mine from cardboard boxes and vic20 cartridges and tape cassette cases.) but I'd love to hear your stories.

I have managed to purchase a few in the last number of years so I have a favourite now but I want to hear you guys first.
