Default Playsets and Display Environments

Anyone ever try a triad display environment? I've got the Mayan and Pantheon enviros in my PoL. Can't wait to check them out.

I thought this thread also might serve as a place to post some other cool playset type items that aren't necessarily the brands or licenses we normally discuss.

While I admit that the saloon set is big (obviously), they are kinda large scale, but then again, with the mayan and pantheon sets, scale is sort of arbitrary. One of the few knocks on those two sets is that they are a tad small for 1:6 figures, but they are spot-on perfect for 4" or 6". The mayan set looks like it would be great for skeletor or indiana jones (10" diameter base, 11" height), and the column set could be yet another part of a war-torn dio.

Check out this review of the pantheon and the pics with the smaller figs. IMO, it really fits best with the 4-6" scale.

I'll admit they are a little expensive, but they are polystone, not plastic, and the detail is killer. Plus they are low production run items. It would cost more than that to custom build one of these.

They won't work, but like nacho said, the Mayan and Pantheon sets will.

I've always been a fan of the Tech Deck sets. They are tougher to find now. The scale is pretty close for them but they do need some weathering.

I'm not as crazy as I appear on the surface!

Here's a review of a few more. Clearly some of them really only work for 1:6 scale stuff. But you can see in the pics, the Mayan one is way too small for 12" figs and would be killer for any kind of 4-6" Indy/MOTU/Tomb Raider type figures.

I guess this is a good thread to dredge back up for this.

We've all talked about the Jakks Pacific MiWorld in a couple other threads so I figured I'd bring them all together here.

They are a little big for 1:18 and fit better with 1:15 or 1:12 but they do have some nice sets and the did well enough to get a second series.

Series 1 :
OPI
Dairy Queen
Sprinkles

Deluxe:
Sweet Factory
Claires

Dairy Queen was really the best set of series 1

Series 2:
Sketchers
Mrs Fields
a Photobooth and a working vending machine

The vernacular photo collector in me wants that photobooth.

Found this today Toy stages has some interesting things. I've thought about coverting some of my home made displays & backdrops to something similar. But I don't really have a printer that will support making enough to make it worth selling.

It looks like Hasbro's Littlest Pet Shop toys are going to make products similar to Jakks MiWorld stuff. They look like interlocking sets that make larger playsets. I saw a 3 story building setup at Target.

Here are some more pictures I found on the internet.

That throne is cool. A Conan Custom would look awesome in that throne.

The only problem with the throne is the tips are VERY fragile. When I moved almost all of them broke off...

It is really awesome looking though.
Ttoo bad the best 1:18 GoT figures will probably be ReAction

Yeah it's The Iron Throne from GoT. It's more of statue than a toy but it works good. There were a couple pics of Destro on it from ToyArk last year when it came out.


I haven't watched the show yet either but I have read the books. I'm not sure what the show is going to do when it catches up with the unfinished books...

There's an Imaginext Castle set that features a pretty neat throne that's way out of scale with the figures but is pretty much ideal for Joes. It comes with a map table, side-table and globe. The paintwork is a little primary color but you could probably weather/dirty it all up to be pretty effective.

(The throne has a hidden treasure chest under it, which is in the ''up'' position on that image - it doesn't normally look that odd.)

I've been eyeing that set for a while now but not sure I want to buy it yet as it would need a lot of paint work.

These are more of a diorama accessory. They are tiny little glass jars. The come filled with glitter & confetti but i'll dump that stuff out and fill them with more menacing items...

Cool!

Yeah, I love my Imaginext anyway but I was also able to get that set on clearance for $8.

They'd make pretty good large specimen jars.
