    I have one since I was a kid. The thing is it's been in my basement so long I'm not really sure how many pieces I have etc. My mom recently told me my kids broke some of the monorail tracks which were in a plastic bag next to it. I should really do a Eternia playset inventory!

    I'd like to get the repro track pieces so that I can demo the tram in action to friends. My question is can the rest of the playset be easily disassembled without risk of breaking anything? My main concern if any of the track arms can break when disassembling. Or is this a playset where you have to keep most of it assembled permanently? What are your experiences? Thanks.

    Way late, but I do. Got it for my birthday when I turned six. I remember my Dad and Uncle Doug spending forever putting decals on it. They enjoyed the monorail as much as I did. It's currently in my attic, gonna put it back out in the garage soon. No idea how complete it still is.

    I dont think it was ever available in my part of the world as a kid so its never really been a wishlist priority . This was a surprise when I joined here. For me my holy grail "big" toy is Castle Greyskull .

    Everyone here would automatically say their favorite figure is HeMan or Skeletor and thats normal , yet a 4th or 5th wave playset shares a similar top position ?

    Does anyone have a scan of the Eternia instructions? I want to get a guide to all the pieces. I am thinking of purchasing a set of the three towers and will need to track down all the missing smaller pieces.

    Thanks I totally forgot to look there. I love your Battle Ram Blog. You got any plans to do a feature on the Eternia Playset?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Hey all I finally got an Eternia playset. It is no where near complete but I got all three towers and a possible working motor for the monorail for $390 including shipping. I see alot of spare parts on eBay, but are there other places to look for pieces to complete this one? I wanted one of these back in Christmas 1986 but never got it, and now 31 years later Eternia is mine!

    Here it is! It's so BIG! I need to give it a good cleaning. Most of the stickers are bad so I will take off the rest and get repro ones. It is missing some screws that hold the Central Tower together. Does anyone have any recommendations on replacement screws?

    I got one for Christmas in '86, but left it behind like an idiot, in a move in '06. But I just recently was able to pick one up locally at a retro shop I frequent.20170727_193700_HDR.jpg
