My Hoth base was styrofoam and my Han Solo was frozen in... aluminum foil.
and remember when 2 liters had the black plastic 'cup" on the bottom? Cut the bottle in half & put the black cup over the open end - instant transport ship!
oh, and here was my inspiration!
there was also a Hoth and Dagobah issue!

I did a lot of this stuff, from styrofoam, popsicle sticks and toothpicks, legos, twigs and branches, dirt, sand, boxes - whatever was at hand. I recall making airplanes and boats out of empty Dawn soap bottles too. DIY - punk rock!

I remember that issue and playset- I remember having the full plans in hand, but my father was not very handy so it never got built.... Man, good memories.
As far as my play areas, I either chose to play indoors where I had some bookcases as a makeshift PIT for the Joes. Rugs were either water or swamps. But outdoors was my favorite - I had a little bit of woods behind my house where I would play. I can remember building a watchtower out of sticks, and a large play area of little hills for the Joes to take cover behind. I also had a wood pallet in the back of my house with an assortment of 2x4s and other wood scraps I would build bases out of. Oh, the good old days

I remembed using sneakers for airplanes because they could fit more joes than the conquest. I dug tunnels outside, I threw shovels at them for explosions, and I used to love freezing them in buckets so blowtorch was useful.
