Twelfth Parsec is holding a Cyber Monday sale – the first 15 customers to use the code cybermonday will receive a 15% off discount. Head on over and place your order by clicking here.
For over two decades now, many collectors have found themselves frustrated by a lack of playsets, dioramas, and basic environments to display their 3.75″ figures with.
If you’re on the fence about these, I can say based on the 6″ scale walls, their product is amazing. You can see a few pics of those in our forums.
Look what we have here – 3.75″ scale “Space Station” playsets available to order through Twelfthparsec.com!
These cool looking playsets are also modular, so you can start off with just specific rooms rather than the whole set.
Use coupon code THATSNOMOON for 10% off this weekend!
Something wonderful has happened – after years on end, high quality modular diorama walls are now available for purchase from 3rd party seller, Galactic Trading Post.
I placed my first order last week, and already received them today. And I have to say, these might be the most exciting thing to happen to the hobby for me… since… heck, I don’t even know that I have EVER seen something this fantastic for displaying a collection.
My son (age 9) and his friend (age 8) went bonkers as well wanting to set them up. Pretty damn cool… hopefully we see a lot more out of these guys as for many of us, this could be a game changer in collecting.
After years on end of Star Wars fans being left out in the cold when it comes to dioramas and playsets, it looks like we may be seeing a 3rd party that could really help fill the void… GTP-Toys.
Right now they are offering some fantastic walls that are in line with 6″ scale figures, and have 3.75″ ones on the way (which is what I’ve personally REALLY been waiting for). Demand appears to already be high enough to put the 6″ scale ones (9-pack starter set) on back order. However, they do have a 2-pack starter set available here.
But just imagine – SOMETHING other than a plain shelf or a cardboard backer for people to display their action figures with! Each wall panel is separate, which allows you to create or recreate your favorite scenes… something I still can’t believe has been neglected by the official toy brand for over two decades now.
While browsing eBay last night, I came across an interesting upcoming Death Star playset, that according to the seller, is made by Takara/Tomy, and is scheduled for release in April. For a closer look, click here.
Who would like to see a more collector friendly version of a Death Star by Hasbro (or another company) compatible with the 3.75″ scale?
Hasbro may not care so much about collector support these days, but that doesn’t mean you have to be left out in the cold… as once again, Holeinthegroundpro comes to the rescue with another great new way to display your 3.75″ scale figures!
If you pre-ordered a “Desert Den” playset from Twelfth Parsec, start keeping an eye on your email for a shipping notice as these have begun to arrive on the doorsteps of collectors.
Personal Note: Independent groups who are actually fans themselves are starting to take advantage of Hasbro’s negligence on the playset front, and hopefully we will see bigger and better things like this in the future.
On any note, head to the forums for a closer look.
We have pulled down the recent story sent to us by Hole in the Ground Productions per request of the author, Eric Berry. We offer Eric best wishes and luck going forward in his service to collectors.
Did you get in on the Space Trees playset campaign by TwelfthParsec? If so, keep an eye on your emails as shipping notices wills start going out this week for those who contributed to the Early Bird campaign. And once you have your sets in hand, remember to share some pics in the forums!
The guys at TwelfthParsec have written in to let us know about an update on their campaign to deliver some cool Ewok related items to the market (including playsets). They have met their fundraising goal, but have been able to extend their campaign a bit longer with some new stretch goals in mind, and for each goal met, contributors will get special perks with additional accessories with their order.
The guys at TwelfthParsec, who are bringing out some great looking Space Trees playsets, have asked us to help spread the word that their goal has been met, but if they can reach a Bonus Goal, everyone who contributes to their campaign will receive a special Torch Railing with their set. However, time is running out to get in on this deal! Click on the above image for more details, or head on over to the forums to share your thoughts.
I’m getting very excited about finally having a modern Ewok Village – are you?
For those of you who have contributed so far to the “Space Trees” playset campaign, the guys at Twelfth Parsec have already met their campaign funding goal! There’s also still time to get your order in, which you can do by clicking here. They expect to start seeing their customers receive their items in July.
Our friends at Imperialshipyards will also be hosting a podcast with Twelfth Parsec on March 20, you can find those details here – and also discuss your thoughts on this campaign (and speculate on what they have coming next!) in our forums.
