Cloud City Action Figures

I …. love how these kids have built their own little Cloud City. Taking jars and boxes and turning them upside down is exactly the type of stuff I used to do as a kid, since playsets were usually cost prohibitive or non-elaborate.

  1. Wow, that commercial had something of a downer in the end. Ha, ha. I was lucky that my grandparents constantly kept their back room filled with the styrofoam from electronic devices used in the equipment packing. With all the shapes provided I some structures that were easily four levels high, sometimes even needing a chair to reach the top. No kidding. :)

    Not just a downer, kind of spoilerish too.
    And I *loved* styrofoam and its many, many possibilities for futuristic architecture and cheap sets for inevitable destruction during space battles and/or confrontation with my Mego Ape soldiers.
    Good, scrunchy times.
