Timewalker has them up for $42.99. I'm tempted, but honestly... I just don't know what I'd do with them. I have too many figures as it is, and I'm starting to have to rotate the ones I have on display. I'd love to be able to do dioramas like you do, but... Where to put all this stuff...? I'm tempted to sell off a bunch of things just so I can keep the ones I really, REALLY, like, and make room for some dios. I don't know. This hobby is beyond addicting. So many cool things out there, and I've been getting more and more into custom figures (like THAT'S cheap). Where to draw the line...
Oh man, I appreciate the heads up! I'm always up to save a couple $$, and I'll have to order from them.
And I agree man, this hobby can be brutal. I wish I had MORE room. As it is now, I have figures kinda spread throughout the house, but the main stuff (especially most of the custom figures) are in glass cases in the living room. I have a small room where I shoot most of my photos that's great because it has 2 walls of windows, and gets great light most of the day. And while I have a few small background elements in the display cases, all my dioramas are really modular, there are only a few things set up in my photo room at a time, and I just have piles of interchangeable elements sitting around back there. I so badly want to have more of the dioramas on display in the rest of the house, and set up all the time. But 1st, they're totally unfinished on the outside, and are just insulation foam or plywood. The 2nd problem is, they get HUGE. I'm working on a garage now that's 4' wide, 3' tall, and 2 feet deep! The cool part is, while it's being built as an inside environment, I plan to be able to change the base, and have it work for outside street scenes as well. But after all the time and effort, I really do want to have it out on display all the time.
But I'll always be the one to encourage you to continue down the custom path. I actually got into 1/6 because I wanted to do custom figures, and 1/6 seemed like there was the most versatile stuff to kitbash, as well as a scale that worked well incorporating different materials. It really is by far the most satisfying part of the hobby for me. I do pick up commercial releases, but I find I spend a lot more on parts and pieces, as well as SO much time. But man, it's always feels worth it.
