Though it can be used for any 6-7" scale figures

Looks neat, but I have my figures hanging out on the original sewer playset. The scale is off, but it's close enough.

There always have been people saying "please sell all these dios you bring to the shows." Now we will see how many of those people can put their money where their mouth is...

Did they already say how much? I'm guessing it's going to be at least $300, but probably more. I'm basing that on the 7" scale foam Space Jockey -- but that's easier to manufacture, no assembly required, minimal paint detailing, and is made of foam... So this might be closer to $500. Or maybe they would sell it as smaller sets that you can snap together however you want? It does kind of look like the panels maybe interlock?

I don't know if I will talk myself into this or not, but it's definitely cool, and if people don't support it then it will likely be the first and last attempt of its kind by NECA.

Im in for sure-love this idea. I also think it looks like its smaller interlocking parts. Maybe a starter kit and add ons of some sort? Either way, what they have on display there will proabably cost more than the Playmates sewer lair.

I'd love to have something like this, but I'm sure I won't be able to justify it. Especially when there are artists out there doing custom sets with way more detail/accessories for prices I imagine are better than what this one's will be.

Be interesting to see if they do anything with the other side. I'd be in if the price is right. Wonder how off it would look with 4 inch figures. Also if it can work with the old turtle street set.

I doubt that this will sell for more than $200. Since it isn't technically tied to any particular license, I'd guess that it will come in for closer to $100-$150. If you can find artists who can make something like this for under $200, they are seriously undervaluing their time.
