The New Zealand Tolstoys exclusive Box, has graphics on the box lid only. Similar to the French Meccano version box and unlike the Tolstoys Australian, Canadian, or UK Palitoy box. This New Zealand Tolstoys Death Star. The Bottom of the box is heavy white cardboard with Tolstoys stamping codes. It had a cut out in left corner and a tear down middle of the box lid, but I repaired it expertly, and it displays nicely.
Through its 40 plus years, it has some shelf-ware with some rips and tears. I have done my best to restore it to its formidable display condition.The Tolstoys version has a lift off box lid, similar to a game board box. Unlike the Palitoy, Kenner Canadian, or Tolstoys Australian box, that opens from the ends, with flaps that rip off easily. The sturdy box holds all of its parts securely, without needing a large inner plastic bag to secure them, like the other Versions have. The base has the Tolstoys logo, displayed Majestically on the underside. This is an Ultra-rare FindThe box lid states figures not included, Tolstoys made in New Zealand.
It is very rare, that the swivel support is not torn. The top hinge of the trash compactor door is split off, but remains snugly fit in its frame without falling out. The slightly yellowed canopy, trash compactor chute, 2 guns, 10 base-clips, and gunners chair, are all in un-cracked or un-damaged condition and I vacuum sealed the accessories for you timeless protection. I have included a Tolstoys COPY of instructions, for ease of assembly.The Heavy chipboard has very minimal play ware. The main support pieces are in crisp condition.
In fact it looks like this Play Set must have only been assembled a few times over the years. All tabs are intact, including the double tabs on the trash compactor sliding piece.
