So to mess with the guys at work, I'm sending them a "Flagg-a-day" picture in an email every day because they laughed at the thought of a 7 & 1/2 foot toy!
I got plenty more where that came from!!!

Regarding the yellowing...Some (or all) of you may already know about this trick, but just in case...
I have had success with soaking yellowed toys (an original vintage storm trooper and the engine shroud off of an eco warriors AWE are my most recent examples) in a bath of 100% hydrogen peroxide and letting them stew in direct sunlight for a day in that bath. Obviously it's best to do this in summer time to get the most direct and long-lasting sunshine because that's what really activates the process. It didn't bring them completely back but it made a world of difference. The storm trooper looked like a chain smoker's fingernails and it brought him back to a gentle off-white. The engine shroud turned back mostly to blue rather than a putrid greenish blue.
I am just a tourist in this thread, since I have never been able to lay hands on a Flagg. I distinctly remember seeing one on the rafters over the aisles of a TRU when I was a kid and BEGGED my parents to get it for me and my two siblings as our combined birthdays/Christmases/whatevers for the next few years. They would not relent! It's all very traumatic for me.
Good luck with your behemoths, you lucky bastards!

Well I have had a Flagg for years and bought another Flagg for parts. So far I am missing the following:
1 Y Pins
Fantail decking (Yeah I know I am dreaming that I would ever get one)
I have the tow hook for the fueler vehicle but I think I am still missing a piece for it to attach to
The elevator support
I will go through and inventory my spare parts I have quite a bit almost another partial Flagg.

If you are ok with casted parts the Y pins and fan tail deck rail pop up on ebay every so often and are relatively cheap.
I am looking for the long grey Hull strip and the elevator base peice.

Congrats to those who just got their Flagg! I'm selling my house so my entire toy room is in storage and man oh man I'm missing my Flagg. I remember the day I first put it together and it was a childhood dream come true. So much fun and I actually can feel it again looking at your pictures. Such an awesome, amazing playset. I'm hoping to find the tow car set at the con since that's my major missing pieces. thanks for sharing the pics. Love 'em.
