Striking Dioramas Return!
March 12, 2013

Luke’s Toy Store has relaunched its unique brand of display environments called Striking Dioramas! While the previous series was made of cardboard, the new series features laser cut black acrylic, for a stronger, more professional appearance. The new series also features foot pegs that are compatible with mini-figures such as Minimates and LEGOs. Figures can be displayed as a static collection, or in dynamic action poses. The high resolution graphics are printed on durable vinyl film that features crisp details and vibrant colors.

Each diorama is 5″ wide, 3.5″ tall, and 3.5″ deep. Some dioramas in the series can be seamlessly displayed side-by-side to create larger displays!

The new series includes 13 brand new designs, plus a blank diorama with templates for you to create your own customized display. The 13 designs cover a wide variety of environments, from industrial bases and smashed concrete walls to alien planets and rainbow bridges. Striking Dioramas start at $13.99 and are available exclusively at Luke’s Toy Store: http://lukestoystore.com/dioramas-displays/

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
