When (Fictional) Worlds Collide

I had intended to post the November 1978 issue of Women's Day magazine last month. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to, but I would be remiss if I didn't publish at least this article. It's a guide to building your kids a playset to go with their "spage-age" figures. Please tell me someone's parents built them this awesome set.
I love the combined play action of Kenner's Star Wars figures with Mego's Micronauts and vehicles used in these shots. I even see a dog and a cat thrown in there. That was the way I always played with action figures. It didn't matter if they were Mego Comic Action Heroes (DC or Marvel), Micronauts, or random figures out of a gumball machine. Scale didn't matter either. I made due. They all combined to create my universe.
The first image as separate pictures so you can see some better detail:
I never had store-bought playsets or anything as cool as this. The best I did was gluing some Styrofoam packing pieces together and combining with assorted cardboard boxes, but it was enough. Man, I spent some hours imagining great adventures.
