Without a cockpit/driver's seat, etc. I don't really see them as vehicles.
Playset is more of a ground location/house/building etc.
I agree with lister, they are more like very big accessories/devices.
Weather Dominator is a big Accessory/Device for sure.
I guess the MASS Device is an accessory as well, allthough with it's treads you could see the MASS Device as a vehicle.
I guess in a way it's like a tank without a driver's seat and armor.
However with no speed eighter. I doubt it moves faster as 5 mp/h. It's a sitting duck if it were a vehicle. It does transport people and vehicles etc. with the teleport function, but it doesn't use any wheels or wings to do that...
It's more like an oversized "beam me up scotty" transportation device with threads.
The treads on the MASS Device are probably there to make it easier to move the device to aim it.

going by the majority of the definitions you guys have given....
so then you guys would consider the HAL and Flak a playset and not a vehicle?
the Flagg and Defiant are not playsets then?
what about the jump station? it's both stationary AND comes with a jetpack for transportation.
what about all those windup things that came out in the 80s? the drill, the sled, the mountain climbing thing....which of those to you consider vehicles and which are not?

Generally if its stationary or needs to be towed by a vehicle its a playset, if it has to be attached to a figure like a backpack its an accessory/addon, if it has an engine/power source has a place where a figure can sit in it or on it I consider it a vehicle. So Jet pack would be accessory/addon, the jump station, weather dominator, HAL, and Flak would be a playset. Flight pod, Ram, Moray, Vamp etc... would be vehicles. There's always exceptions to the rules though, the Flagg is a playset even though an aircraft carrier is a vehicle and the Defiant is both Playset and vehicle do to the different parts that make up the whole.

I put vehicle, but everyone made good points of why it should be a playset that I think I changed my mind. My initial thought was that they are weapons rather than a shelter of some kind. To me a playset is some sort of housing, bunker, shelter, room, diorama set, or something to that effect. Not having a third option led me to put vehicle even though these items are not something a figure can sit in.

My vote is they are too small and too difficult to complete thanks to the poor distribution of the last MASS set. Although, I don't see that as an option in the poll.
