TS118 Sidewinder Project - Modular Diorama

Thursday, October 22, 2009


Some quick notes..

- Inspired by the ARAH GI Joe the movie.

- Displayed last October 10-11, 2009 at the Robinson’s Place Manila Mall (Philippines) in celebration of Collecticon 2009, organized by Hobbiworx and PinoyToyKolektors (PTK).

- Brought to you by the same team that came up with O:Shock and Awe, O:Killzone, O: Forced Entry…the Philippines only local 3 3/4 (1:18) Joe online community.. TS118

- This diorama changes display every four-five hours. It is the first of its kind in the Philippines for action figures (regardless of scale). We dubbed it as a “dynamic modular diorama” or DMD.

- Took only 2 weekends of preparation given the tropical storms that hit the Philippines last September and actual dio-work to complete (figures/structures/vehicles).

- Collaboration done by at least 10-14 members (builders, pledgers/financiers, consultants, etc.)

- Simulated actual body of water (stream) by using four large bottles of setting lotion poured over a bed of Styrofoam sprinkled with pebbles (it actually lasted the entire two days without even drying).
