I just won this starter set on eBay:

It's an Estes Star Wars Death Star starter set, I presume from the early '90's, but the seller didn't say. It's still sealed in its original box.

The past couple of weeks, I've been looking at and bidding on old Star Wars kits and starter sets. This one went for $12.50 plus $8.95 shipping and handling, which seems pretty reasonable. Similar items, even open ones, have recently gone for over $20 plus shipping.

My sons have gotten really interested in Star Wars lately, and I just saw Episode III a couple of weeks ago.

I'm going to build this one. :)

John, you look so incredibly relaxed launching your Death Star...you should have applied for
a spot in the astronaut corps!
