    9.5' x 8' Custom-Made Grayskull Diorama w/ 40+ Classics Figs

    Hey guys - long time lurker, first time poster! I co-own a toy store in NJ and every year, we do a custom diorama for our storefront window. This year we did "The Power of Grayskull" and some friends suggested I post it here for you guys to see!

    The front:


    Here's a few shots of the castle exterior and landscape:












    You can walk in the store and look in behind to see inside the castle:






    There's lots more photos (170+)! If you want to check them out, you can click here! We also have an album of Production Shots if you'd like to see it as a WIP!

    Sorry if I'm coming off as spammy, we're all just really proud of this and we hope people like it! Thanks for checking it out!

    Thanks guys! We won Diamond Comics' Best in Industry Window Display award last year and we're hoping to do so again this year! But really, we do it because we love toys. I've loved She-Ra since I was a little girl and this is as close to a She-Ra dio as I'll ever get!!!

    Oh wow! Excellent detail and love the figures posed around it. The Castle actually looks like it's smiling to me too.

    That is just brilliant. I love the lay out, I love the action (figures flying through the air, awesome!!) and I just LOVE the way the top of the skull on the castle is now a balcony!! Brilliant idea!

    That is, hands-down, the finest toy diorama I have ever seen. You have my congratulations, my thanks, my envy, and my resentment.
    Sadly, you can't divorce emotion from a toyline built on nostalgia.

    Impressive! saw this the other day on another site, it was for Free Comic book wasn't it? Do you have pictures of your other dioramas (I heard there was a Marvel one) and what were they?
