As I understand it, they were scared off by the limited sales of this Tie Fighter, and so have only done speeders and other small vehicles since.
Ah I guess that would make sense, I can't imagine impractically large and expensive items are great sellers.

Finally finished off my diorama:

The whole thing was initially made from foamboard and stuck together with PVA glue. It was then textured using some powder filler I got from B&Q, and then painted with sand acrylic paint, followed by a brown wash. I found the door and doorway designs on Thingiverse already in the right scale so I 3D printed those. The buttons are my own design that I 3D printed, based on screengrabs from the film.

And because of the similar scale, it fits the 5 inch Doctor Who figures quite nicely too!

Very nice! Wish I could do that, haha.... That last shot looks great, you could do some nice atmospheric pictures with it.

Incredible work!! The texturing's stunning, love the subtle weathering on the door, and the entire set up looks brilliant with both your Sandtroopers and Who figures!

So here’s my collection so far, along with my transformers studio series and Doctor who display for good measure (gotta redo those top 2 shelves, and ignore the Hogwarts express, I gotta move that)

Pretty proud of how it’s looking, I’ve kinda gone full insane mode in getting everything, but I’ve forgotten how much I love action figures, with DW stuff being few and far between, I’ve missed how fun it is to open up figures and pose them and display them. I plan to stick around with this line for a while.

That collection is looking extremely nice! Love the little "mini displays" like Ach-to and the throne room.

Thanks guys :D

The door is actually one bit I wasn't quite happy with, the "weathering" is more a result of me just chucking different shades of brown at it until I found one I liked :lol: it's closer to a reddish clay colour in the films so I might repaint it at some point.

FYI, we're getting a new batch of 40th anniversary figures for Empire Strikes Back, along with a deluxe Probe Droid. I'm excited.
