To go along with others using vintage playsets for photo fodder, here are some shots I took about a year and a half ago messing around in the basement of my grandparents' house.
This is the Service Center playset, which was the first I received. I believe a chocolate brown Hot Bird was the included car. It survived my childhood reasonably well, with the only real issue being stickers not quite installed straight.
Pretty sure I also have the City, Construction Site, and Railroad sets.
Pics are using cars from a recent case at the time (Oct. 2013), so some early 2014 releases DLM'd. Plus, a Subaru Legacy that I believe was from a gas station playset when Ollie's first got a batch of various Tomica goodies.
