Another U.K. playset made by Palitoy. The cardboard backdrop is the same as the Kenner version but the rest is really different. The name here is simply Cantina whereas the Kenner version is called the Creature Cantina (probably because there were two different cantina playsets in the US). Molded in the corner of the plastic base is a sunken area where figures could gather for drinks. There is a sticker on the front of the bar that gives the illusion of stools. The bar is much lower and shaped differently than the Kenner set. The doors and door frame are also different. Some versions of this set displayed a sticker on the box noting the inclusion of 4 figures as a special offer. As usual, a bonus sticker for a special offer usually causes a toy to get thrown in the rare category.

The kid pictured on this box is probably more homely than any of those goofy Kenner kids pictured with the US toys.
