A new Yakfinties Customizing Challenge is just around the corner, but before it kicks off, we need to decide on a theme.
So, if you’re a registered Yakface Forum member, we invite you to cast your vote by clicking here!
The current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge runs through the end of September, and some fantastic entries have been rolling in.
Check out the latest submissions, or get your own entry in after the jump!
Reminder: All entries should be new custom dioramas made during this Yakfinities window (July-September). Older dioramas, if shared, should be clarified as older as they are not eligible for a prize in the roundup report.
After being completely amazed by the quality of their diorama Space Walls, I was fortunate enough to be able to see first hand how great a few of the other diorama pieces are shaping up through GTP Toys.
The boxes and barrel I received are rubber prototypes – the final product will be plastic and in line with the quality of the walls. I snapped a few pics, which can be seen here.
Everyone – I completely am sincere when I say these are some of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in the hobby. I’ve been an avid adult collecting enthusiast for over two decades now, and have always felt there was a gaping hole in my collection – environments to display my figures. Having these items in person, and setting them up is on par with the excitement of putting together the stellar BMF (Falcon) from several years ago because the quality is just that great. This is professional quality – not 3D printed with print lines. It’s top line product for an affordable price.
The only way the guys at GTP Toys are going to be able to continue to make products like this (including 3.75″ scale) is from support from the collecting community. So if you’re looking for a better way to display your collectibles, check them out!
Our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenges pushes the envelop a bit with the latest theme – Custom Dioramas.
For all you customizers, this is a great time to expand your comfort zone – and there’s still over a month left to submit an entry. So roll up your sleeves and let’s see what you can come up with!

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.
There were a couple of Q&A sessions with Hasbro at SDCC a few weeks ago that revealed some intriguing responses from Hasbro Star Wars Design Director, Steve Evans, in terms of 3.75″ SA figures… and even the topic of playsets.
If you’re a diorama lover, and have the funds, forum member kevin1126 has made the tough decision to part with some amazing custom diorama/playsets by Carl Boumansour (aka Boutros77).
If you are interested in contacting Kevin, you may contact him through our forums, or email me at email@example.com and I will be sure he gets your contact information.
You can also take a closer look at these dioramas by clicking on the image above.
If you’re feeling like there’s just not a whole lot to get excited about for the 3.75″ market these days, I would suggest checking out the great range of custom diorama products available at Holeinthegroundpro.
There you will find a very nice selection of various items to not only help fill the gaps in your displays, but also help quench the thirst to add some more cool 3.75″ items to your collection. Check out what they have to offer after the jump!
If you’re looking forward to purchasing the Toys”R”us exclusive TBS6 droids 3-pk, they are showing up in Canada now and should be popping up in the United States soon (if not already). The Canada retail price will set you back a whopping $89.99.
Thanks to Yakface reader Mike F. for the report.
One thing Hasbro has grossly neglected time and time again over the years is playsets/dioramas/environments for their action figure lines.
So in that light, our latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge theme is custom playsets/dioramas/environments! This Yakfinities runs through the end of September, so there’s plenty of time to create and submit an entry.
