The playset is in decent condition. The compactor, elevator, and trap door all work. The cannon turns and clicks but does not explode. The 1977 figures pictured come with the set and an EXCELLENT Trash Monster. The top platform does not have the small tabs underneath that attach to the tower but they serve no purpose and most people don't know about them.
I have taken a close up so you can see the supports and the middle tab hold it together. The bottom floor does have the small tabs and some yellowing in places. The set has all of the supports however one black one and one white are missing a tip. This does not affect assembly and is not noticeable.The cardboard panels have good color but have creasing and some stains from age and use. These are actually in decent shaped for the age and have good color as pictured. This is a solid set to be 40 years old. I have many playsets listed and take high resolution pictures so you don't miss anything. I have a lot listed and will be listing much more so check back!
