    Figures Toy Company Has Carrying and Diorama Cases...

    I'm wondering about the quality of them (I hope they're good), but you can see them here...

    They even have a blank carrying case, you can put your own custom art into and the diorama case is blank too (and custom art can be incerted), of course. Not sure I like the "roof-like" structure on the diorama case, though.

    A better roof and a fold-out floor would make a big improvement. But I am a sucker for vinyl playsets, so I will probably still end up trying it out.

    Very similar to the vintage Dinah-Mite Spa playset. It has possibilities.

    I got mine in today.

    Here are the instructions with the sizes for the graphics:



    The roof plastic is nice and the construction seems fine, but I haven't put it together yet, so I'm not sure about the alignment.

    It seems you can get by with regular size paper, so I plan to try and throw something together.

    I think you could do a "Vader-dome" sticker on the front roof and make a Legion of Doom playset with your furnishings.

    I'm definately wondering how I can use this for villians. United Underworld, Ha-Ha Hacienda, something.

    Yes, I had already thought of asking Robyn for her Legion of Doom graphics. I would also like to make a Hall of Justice with the Trouble Alert table.

    Thanks for posting pictures. I am surprised it is held together with screws and nuts. The way this is assembled, it seems like you would be able to rig an alternate top for it... hmmm...

    I'm also realizing there is no closure on the case, like the old brass "lock" on the Enterprise playset. I wonder how it stays closed if used as an actual carrying case?

    After a long time and some swearing, I got it together. I put in different color paper just to see how it worked. I'm missing one screw, but I probably lost it during assembly. There is nothing holding it shut, so it doesn't make a very good carrying case. However, once you finally get it together, it does feel solid. The weight of the sides allow they to stay at whatever angle you put them in.

    I'm thinking about getting two of them and making a ceiling/floor bracket and having a double high playset.
