I still remember my first Kalkitos, "Tarzan" which I got for my Christmas present when I was very young. I of course didn't get to play it due to my age. My uncles and brother are the ones enjoying my Kalkitos.
Kalkitos - a piece of background scene with a piece of rub-on transfers for you to create your own adventure. It's a cheap and good past time for 80s kids like me. If my memory serve me correctly, it cost only RM0.75 for small ones and RM1.50 for the big ones. And I can get them from the local grocery store..

I searched ebay for Kalkitos - and found a few - at an unbelievable high price!! It cost 5 Euros excluding shipment!!! Then I did some research on the net and found Magic Presto - similar to Kalkitos but a US version. With luck, I got myself 4 vintage 1983 Star Wars Return of the Jedi Magic presto set, still sealed in bag. Well it still costly but not as bad as Kalkitos.

Collectible Value: Kalkitos is very rare in eBay. However you can still find Magic Presto in Ebay selling for USD9.90 per piece average.
