The Goonies 360°

The Goonies! The whole cave—in one play-set!


Build and relive all your favorite scenes from the Fratelli’s basement to One-Eyed Willy’s lagoon. The model consists of 4 levels and 10 “rooms” in a 360° presentation designed to follow all the action in the same order as it was in the movie:


The Fratelli’s Basement > The Pipe Room > The Boulder Room > The Wishing Well > The Cannonball Trap Room > The Skull Room > The Log Crossing > The Skeleton Piano > The Water Slide Room > One-Eyed Willy’s Lagoon




The set has a moving fireplace revealing a passage down into the cave, the rolling cannonball, two trap floors with deadly spikes beneath them, a stone drawbridge, and of course, a functional slide leading into the lagoon!






The set also includes Minifigures for Mikey, Chunk, Data, Mouth, Bran, Andy, Stef, Mama Fratelli, Jake, Francis, and of course, Sloth!

This set was a challenge to build and it took on many variations along the way, from a super-wide diorama, to an “ant farm” type of setup, while finally settling into this 360° tower of 80’s awesomeness. The 4 level, rotating build allowed me to follow the action of the movie while still managing to keep the set to a reasonable size and without exceeding the part limit.


I welcome any and all suggestions for improvement!

I appreciate everyone’s support of this project and really hope we can make it a reality. And remember…


Goonies never say die!!!
