Rooftop Scene Custom Diorama / Playset

Custom #:56158  
Name:Rooftop Scene
Custom Type:Diorama / Playset
Toy Series:Original
Date Added:December 4, 2013
Base Figure:Pink foam
Height:8.00 inches
Completion Time:10.00 hours
Customer requested a diorama where he can use his 4" TMNT figures to replicate the famous photo of the whole group on the rooftop... and to include a water tower.

I mainly used the 1/2 inch pink foam but for a the two wall pieces i needed something a little thicker, so i used styrofoam. I made it so the rooftop can be raised or lowered depending on the figure. I didnt want to restrict him to just the little turtles. So many cool scenes can be made with Spidey or Bats if used correctly. Also the walls are removable depending on how the customer wanted to take their shots.

The main part of the water tower was made from a place mat, then added some foam pieces, wooden dowels, and card stock finished the build.

The next one you do should be brought to another level, literally. Add 3 inches and get half windows. Or build an add on. You mastered the brick detail so it should be easy for you!

Brilliant work my friend! I've been looking through your work and I'm totally sold. I have a one diorama but nothing to this caliber, expect to hear from me real soon with a few commissions! What's the best way to reach you? I don't see an e-mail in your user details.

Wow, that is truly amazing! I would have never guessed it was made out of foam. This is very cool, is it hard to work with the pink foam or was this pretty easy for you? Anyways, nice job man.

Thank you sir! You can work wonders with a coat of paint. haha. Pink foam isnt to bad to work with. Just have to have a little finess to make things easier for yourself, if you ever want to start and try it out, im always open to give tips through KIK. my username is the same name I use here.

Neat. This customer wouldn't happen to have my 4" TMNTs in "human form" would they?
If so, they're going to look awesome on this!
toysilog - Thursday, December 5, 2013
I havent seen your work! but am interested if you have pictures of them. sounds interesting!

Well, my friend, step this way and take a gander at some of my customs.
toysilog - Friday, December 6, 2013
For some reason I can't see a list of your customs. I click on your screen name, then customs, and all I see is a contest entry with your Lady Jaye.

...Then after that, look at the "Customizer Profile" at the top, click my name where it says "Customizer:" and there you go. It took myself awhile to figure it out, too.

Awesome work! How mucky does a set like that run someone?
This_guy - Saturday, December 7, 2013
Thanks! The winner of the "Ninja Dudes" made a final bid for about $40 on the 'bay. I haven't started doing commission work yet 'cause I'm kind of novice customizer.

THWIP71 - Thursday, December 5, 2013
That's awesome; it would work great for Spidey and Daredevil as well.
toysilog - Thursday, December 5, 2013
I know right?! the list is endless! makes me want to build a rooftop dio for my own collection. in due time I guess.. haha.
THWIP71 - Thursday, December 5, 2013
When/if you do, go ahead and make 2, and I'll buy the other.
