Yeah, that sounds about ballpark...

Damn though, that's still pricey.  I'm passing either way, but if I was in the market for something to display SW stuff that I didn't build myself...  it'd be in the running.  it's a nice mix.

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

Yeah, and the dollar has been sliding against the pound for two years now, so come time for these to ship in the UK next year, 69.99 may not be too bad. I was going to have a friend order a couple and ship them over, and to do so (figuring the preorder price, shipping, and reshipping) came to about the same as what SWS is asking. I'm not justifying the price, but in this case it doesn't look like its SWS that is doing the gouging.

I wonder when they will annouce the other ones, and if Hasbro will realize there is a market for such items. 

I agree Jesse that this isn't exactly how I display my stuff either, but I do think these have quite a bit of potential.  Mainly for a Death Star/Cloud City set-up. 

Thanks BTW for not being anal and moving this thread like the mods did at another forum, as they thought it was only appropriate for vintage collecting.  I disagree since it comes with stands compatible with the modern line. 

If I win the lottery or something I'll order a set of each, and maybe a couple extras for a few of you guys.   ;)

From our vinty section:

This running around between the vinty thread & the OTC thread is driving me 

I was thinking of merging both threads together but this is a vinty & modern subject so they can both stay where they are.  :)

If I win the lottery or something I'll order a set of each, and maybe a couple extras for a few of you guys.   ;)

I would like mine gift wrapped.  ;)

That was GNT alone being anal over at Scum, i think...  The vinty guys just merged the topics which is cool since they had one.  GNT on the other hand, was pulling power...

Honestly, that and the shot at it being "news" in his mind (Odd that someone not tasked with any reporting is setting personal guidelines of what is, and is not news...  I mean, if GNT's so adept at such things, why not appoint him as a reporter, ya know?  But I digress), are all little paybacks for (I think) a link or mention of Jedi Defender...  Typical kids stuff from him, pay it no mind.

Maybe since Galactic Hunter has the news too now, GNT will consider it more important?  He's not exactly Mr. Popularity over there either though...  Two sites who can't stand his ilk, so he's not welcome at either, and he lashes back at both a lot of the time. 

I'm not suprised in the slightest though...  Just speaks of his character.

I totally agree with your description of GNT and him being anal - the guy does that quite a bit and is one of a number of hinderances to the forums there.  In my experience this is definitely the best place to go and chat, and although there's a few less people that post here, I think that makes it a lot better here actually.

Anyways, I hope they do show some more of the diorama displays from that UK company... the prices on these are pretty steep, but if they can pull something outstanding together for a Death Star or Cloud City version, I'm in.   :)

I'm getting the vibe that we may not see these come to fruition, at least not after the initial one.  Anyone heard any news?

In the latest Insider, these are listed but the price is TBD... hopefully they can lower the price on these a LOT!

That's a good price.  I have about $120 in credit with Legends right now.  I've not been able to find anything I want, so maybe I'll just snag a couple of those and be done with it.

70 bucks is too much, but if they lower the price maybe and if they get a Cloud City definetly.

Pride Displays "A New Hope" Action Figure Diorama
« Reply #28 on: September 17, 2005, 12:05 PM »


Just a heads up that these are available on the "Pride Displays" new website for $54.99 with FREE shipping.  A lot better than the $79.99 + shipping most places were charging. 

I thought I'd give it a shot and just ordered one.  Anyone else get one of these yet?

I have decided to pass on these... just not worth it to me, although that is a much better price Stim.   :-\
