    1986 mall tour playsets rediscovered?

    I came across a piece of history! The seller claims these sets were painted by Mattel and put on display during a mall tour for He-Man and Barbie. Could it be the same sets from the 1986 mall video?

    The resemblance is uncanny!

    Wow pretty cool!

    Very good custom or the Original. However it looks the same even if colours were a bit more shiny back then.
    Unfortunately there is no clear Grayskull scene in the vid.

    Nice find indeed, congrats !

    I currently own these. Won them off eBay about a year and a half ago. They're the same sets from the mall tour. There's pieces of the flooring from the set, glue from the feet of the characters on snake mountain. They're also no hinged together but instead joined using some sort of apoxy. Anyway here's some photos.
