"Pride Display" Vintage-esque Diorama
« on: December 23, 2004, 10:46 AM »
Wow, this is very cool and has a lot of potential - what do you guys all think of these?  Yeah they are expen$ive at $69.99 and available in May 2005 (five more scenes are planned, no figures included), but I have to say this is a step in the right direction!



For more info, go to the front page or the offical shop site!   :)

I don't think I'll be shelling out that much for one either... but if they do a cool Death Star or Cloud City version, I might change my mind.

Wonder if these will be compatible with the modern day figures foot pegs?

Why in the world is it $70?  It looks like it should be $20 tops.  Are there chips of diamonds in the sand? 

Anyway, yeah it's neat-o.

I was just thinking the same thing Justin, are they going to be Vintage or Modern Footpegs.  Since there are 6 of them planned maybe they will do 3 of each

I'm thinking it would be more vintage Scott but then we won't know till this thing comes out or get more information on it. It would be nice to have both.

Also, this is a UK import so this may take into effect of the high cost. I have a thread going in the vinty section here about it.

Looks like it comes with dual stands... 50 of them is pretty cool!

Also, note that there are not pegs on the actual ground of it, which to me is great!

This is from the actual manufacturer, which is not Hasbro.  http://www.pridedisplays.com/indexx.htm

Well there you go, it had a clicky on the picture on the site.  :-[

50 duel stands is great, mix & match if you want.  8)

Still pricey.  :-\

*edited* to reflect these are not made by Hasbro.

I'm excited to see what other ones they have planned.

Why not just buy a land of the jawas base and print out a background for it? Its the same thing!

What the hell are they smoking at $70? Or even at 30pounds is insane. I wouldn't give you more than $10 tops.

Well, I agree that it's WAY overpriced.  The price is outright crazy.

I would pay about $25 or so in a heartbeat for it, especially since it comes with 50 figure stands.

Anyways, I am really looking forward to seeing more of these - hopefully a Death Star and Cloud City one.....

Yes CHEWIE, I should've emphasized that it's NOT a Hasbro product actually.  They're from a small european company I was told, and have only been available to the UK (unless you wanna ship one over to yourself) thus far.

I'm unsure what their Euro price is though...  I'm wondering if it's close to the $70 SSW.com price they're charging to "import" this one?

It's unique...  I tend to display figures differently than that, but it's still sort of neat.  Very nice quality it seems, but I'm sort of surprised there's not a stink being raised by Hasbro on this...  Unless they simply don't care on this one.

Just did a quick conversion based on the rate right now, $30. GBP = $57.5891 USD.

Don't forget they have to add there shipping cost from the UK to them, no doubt they get a bulk discount.
