Ral Partha Cave
This is an interesting conceptual piece from the Micro Collection. It obviously represents a scary cave of some sort. But there has been some argument as to what Micro set it was intended for, the Wampa Cave or Dagobah. These two sets seem to have been the two that Kenner conceptualized first, at the outset of their developmental work on the Micro line.

Rob feels it's probably from the Dagobah set, since the conceptual Wampa figure is too large to fit into its mouth, and conceptual "film strip" paintings that have been published of the Dagobah set show Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker facing off within a cave-like setting. As you can see from the photo, the Luke and Vader figures seem to be in the same scale as the cave.
