It was made of chipboard, and a French version of the Trash Compactor sign was added underneath the English version on the wall above the chute. The Palitoy version (as well as the Toltoys and Meccano versions of the chipboard Death Star) showed a colourful graphic of the X-Wing Fighter and TIE Fighter as well as the first 12 action figures on the underside of the base. The Canadian version only had a black marble covering on the underside of its base with no graphics at all, similar to what is found on the underside of board games.
This was easily accomplished since Kenner Canada was affiliated with Parker Brothers, the company that made board games in Canada. The box also shows the Kenner logo. Sears also had a chipboard Death Star special offer.
