Scale Store 1/6th scale Afghanistan Wall - GREAT for diorama or creating a scene

Scale Store ITEM NO:S0024 is a 1/6th scale Afghanistan Wall made of Resin Material. It looks nice for creating a scene or diorama but the problem with these items are the prices. After adding shipping, it becomes rather costly (almost doubled) and you have to think whether it's more worth it to spend the money on a 12-inch figure or splash it on an environment.

There will always be two sides to a coin i.e. some prefer figures while some prefer figures in an environment. Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion but some companies have been adding some extra little touches to their products without jacking up the price. Instead of just including the standard 12-inch figure display stand, some companies are throwing in a little extra in the form of a scenic base i.e. a non-standard black base, a base with some relevance to the character being featured. Some recent examples - Brother Production Hard-boiled "Harry" (pictures HERE), Art-Figures: SAVES "Punisher: War Zone" Figure (reviewed HERE) and Hot Toys Classic Predator (check out my post HERE). In the case of "Toms Forrest", the all important iconic bench was added to make Forrest Gump look complete :) - see pictures HERE

In the meantime, just enjoy these pictures of Scale Store 1/6th scale Afghanistan Wall. Measurements and dimensions included in the last picture. Scroll down to see all ;p

On another note, DAM Toys' 1/6th scale Black Hawk Down / Operation Gothic Serpent 12-inch U.S. Army Ranger and Delta Force figures come with packaging that can be transformed into a scene. ZCWO Mens Hommes Vol.003 (Boxing Legend) Men's Collection box converts into a Changing Room Background - pictures posted HERE

All these Scale Store 1/6 scale diorama sets are GREAT for people who have no skill whatsoever in creating and making dioramas but want to display their figures with more depth :) For those with the skill to customize their own diorama, these provide a good reference too

hey Alex,

I bought a couple of these the other day, they're certainly worth the price (in HK THat is, around ~HK$300), the detail is fantastic and the whole thing has a substantial weight to them . I had a bit of trouble carrying them. I'll be going back for more.

Make sure you get some when you're in HK.
