Custom JOE Training Level


Recommended Posts

It's has been a while since I posted. Moving into a new house kept me away from the DIO construction, but I just finished a new one. The next three I make will be slightly different dimensions given the way I want to display them along with the shelf units.


This one is a close combat training area with observation room. I used the SIGMA SIX BATS as training robots for the Joes. The wall segments (terror drome parts) that make up the maze can be moved around as needed to create different scenarios. As you can tell, I was a big fan of the convention exclusives last year and the "Marauder" furniture and modular weapons helps a ton too. Hope you like it!


Up next will be a Cobra Interrogation Room with adjoining genetics lab for Mindbender and Serpentor.

Okay so you're some of kind of diorama making god. I think everyone here would agree with me on that. Now if these are all listed as "stackable" might we see what they look like stacked? Because I want the people as Hasbro to see that and then pay you to make them commercially available so I can own one.

Thanks guys! This past one is one I have wanted to make for some time. I started it last week painting the wall base colors first. My wife and baby girl were out of town for the weekend, so I hammered out the decals and final assembly in one night. (That doesn't count however, the computer time I put in designing the walls and mapping out basic layouts.)


I hope to get a good start on the next one (Brainwave Scanner/Genetics Lab) in a couple days.

WOW. not just amazing, amazazing :) sweet stuff. how many more of these do you plan to make?


I still have quite a few more to make. I have space for four more Cobra displays on one shelf. Right now I am leaning toward a double level MARS hangar of some kind, but I have not finalized plans for the other two. (Any suggestions?)


I still have to get started on the JOE shelf unit (8 displays total), but I wanted to get these smaller displays done first. I plan to make a Cobra Stockade with brainwave scanner connected to a gentics lab for Mindbender in a couple weeks. The third smaller display will be a hideout for Zartan and his dreds that looks like a bar but has a secret high tech storage room for Cobra supplies and weapons.


I attached pics of the dimensions I use. I actually have the local lumberyard cut the wood for me so all I have to do is paint, apply stickers and screw the walls together.





Most of the pics come from cropped and edited pics from the following sites incase anyone is wondering where I get most of my clipart for the displays. I have also scanned a ton of things from Joe comics as well.






Let me know if you have any suggestions for future displays.
