Sideshow 12" Chalmun's Cantina Environment

12" Chalmun's Cantina Environment teaser posted...

It's a neat dual way to display it, which is cool so it's not just a one-sided deal, but part of me wishes it were a tad more complete.  I'm sure it's not going to be cheap as it is though so they're keeping the cost down, but I love the outside with the Sandtroopers.  That's pretty slick.

It's hard for them to top Yoda's hut, but they seem to be trying.

Yeah, their stuff is impressive.  I think the environments are a unique item, but in the end I just can't afford them.  That and my wife would slaughter me if I picked up this stuff.  And would anyone blame her?  Why did she kill him?  Because he kept charging $200-$300 Star Wars items and bankrupted them.  Ohhhhh, ok then.   ;D

Anyway that would be great with the Sandtroopers and Dewback.  I am sure a Ronto is right around the corner!  JK.

It is an enviroment near the Yoda Hut´s concept from Sideshow. Today companies sell enviroments to configure accurate dioramas. Looks that inside the arch of the enviroment is enough room for the 2 chairs, Han y Greedo 12 inches scale. 8)

Environment, Diorama and playset, very near concepts among them. Perhaps 2012 will be the time for Hasbro 3 3/4 environments (like potf2 FX conectable bases).

For sale...  Cool set, but I'm kind of disappointed at how some of the environment sets have turned out.  I don't like the chopped down nature of ones like this, or the arch for JP which I thought kinda sucked honestly.

It's neat, especially this one, but the Dagobah Hut was far superior.

I think if they made them so, if you were so inclined, you could add something to the sides and expand it, it'd be better.  As it stands, the half-circles and things make that much more difficult.

I would be really interested to see if they end up making the distillery and the bar.  Add that to this piece and that's pretty damn great!  Of course I can't afford them but would still think it may happen sometime.
