Here's an interesting take on diorama background!  This venture is called Cardboard Galaxy.  They have some old-school cardboard backgrounds that are reminiscent of things like the vintage Kenner Cantina Adventure Set.

Most of their stock is geared towards 3.75" figures.  But there are now a number of 6" scaled backgrounds that are pretty interesting!

Check out this site https://flightpose.com/ for some acrylic vehicle stands that you can use to help display some of your vehicle collection.

Bumping this thread up since I found a new page on FB that's pretty cool.  This guy is 3D printing a Bespin playset, and the design looks pretty legit.

These may not fall under diorama pieces, but this site does have a number of items that may come in handy for displaying your collection:

OMG!  The guys at Twelfth Parsec have come up with their new "Space Base".




This thing looks pretty awesome!

Another custom scene/diorama shop has popped up.  This one seems to be focusing on 1/12th scale (for the 6" figures) parts.  And that site is called GALACTIC TRADING POST.

With 3D printing and resin casting becoming more common, it seems that collectors are starting to fill some of the vacuum that's been left in the realm of playsets by making their own.  A couple of online stores have popped up that I have taken notice of that may be of interest to those who want some diorama or playset pieces that just didn't seem like they were going to be possible via the traditional Hasbro avenues.


TWELFTH PARSEC - http://twelfthparsec.miiduu.com/
These guys have a couple of sets that harken to two notable settings.  Their "Space Tree" sets are straight out of Endor, and look like they're designed to be expanded upon so that collectors can create their very own Forest Moon.

And their Desert Duo sets are dead ringers for that wretched hive of scum and villainy, the Mos Eisley cantina.  They offer up booths, chairs and even some electronics.  These sets aren't exactly cheap, but they offer an amazing level of detail.


Hole In The Ground Pro - http://www.holeinthegroundpro.com/dioramas.html
This site has some more diverse offerings.  They've got some Cantina style pieces like 12th Parsec.  But they also have some Imperial environments along with some that are amazing reproductions of the Tantive IV interior from A NEW HOPE

Some other things that make them a little different?  They've come up with some transports, like the Rebel hangar transport from TESB and a pod craft that you see in ANH.


So has anyone bought anything from either site?  I'm interested in getting some firsthand feedback about both sites.

Very cool sites.  I have been debating for a while now on getting a 3d printer to try stuff like this.  Obviously they are extremely expensive though and hard to justify getting one just for dioramas.  I have so many incomplete sets though that I have wanted to finish that these sites might come in handy.
