It may seem like there’s fewer items worth buying in the 3.75″ market these days – and if you feel this way, head on over to Holeinthegroundpro.com for a refreshing focus on items in this scale for scene and diorama building (collector language for playsets).
All kinds of fantastic items are available… the prices are fair, the quality is the best I’ve seen, and orders are received in a timely fashion. For more details, check them out here and share your thoughts in our forums.
Yakface Forum member darthcrassus has shared a great review of a couple of The Force Awakens vehicle models by Revell. Check them out by clicking here!
Got some Star Wars items you’ve reviewed and want to share? Do so in our forums, and you might see it show up on our front page!
Personal Note: These Revell items look a lot better than I had expected, and it appears that a lot more attention to detail went into these than what we’ve been seeing from Hasbro in quite some time, sadly.
We head into the weekend by taking a peek at some fantastic vintage style custom figures by forum member WampaBait.
There’s some really great eye candy for both vintage collectors and customizers from all walks of the hobby here – check it out after the jump!
Toy-Gear is proud to introduce Action Figure Archival Trays as the perfect compliment for quality loose figure collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Indiana Jones, Marvel and more.
Their 4-inch figure sized trays have been specifically designed to fit most modern and vintage action figures and provide a neutral, padded, organized long term storage solution. They also make for a great way to display your figures with an acrylic stand or mounted directly to a wall. They even have trays coming for larger sized action figures.
They are doing a Kickstarter to help get the word out about their product, and also to build up a large enough initial inventory of trays for local toy shows and online reviewers. As an incentive for this Kickstarter, they are offering their trays at a special lower price than we will be at retail.

Forum member kevin1126 has shared some amazing photos of his collection in our forums for your viewing pleasure. Some of you will probably recognize the works of diorama builder Boutross77 here and diorama accessories that Raylen has provided.
On any note, feast your eyes on the amazing gallery he’s shared in our forums after the jump!
Most of us want to see the 3.75″ SA figure line continue, right? But does it really have to cost this much? Especially when nearly everything else of comparable size/articulation costs consumers way less?
Is this really Hasbro’s only option to keep a decent articulated line going? Or instead of full SA figures, why can’t they have the baseline articulation be around 10 points, and have a unified line with a MSRP around $8.99 (such as similar quality to THIS)?
Is a beyond 5POA line that’s more affordable too much to ask for? Share your thoughts in the forums.
This evening we spotlight the amazing recent work of forum member Sjefke, who has created what may the best 3.75″ Yak Face (Saelt Marae) figure ever made. You have to see all the pics he’s shared to truly appreciate the amazing nature of this work of art… do that by clicking here!
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!
Check out some more details in our forums, and be sure to head on over to their site to secure your own diorama wall kit by clicking here.

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.
The current Yalfinities Customizing Challenge is winding down – so be sure to get your entry in by the deadline of September 30th at 11:59pm CST!
