New Diorama Items at Hole in the Ground Pro


Forum member Raylen has updated us with some fantastic new diorama items to fill the needs of collectors.  Check out his latest items, which are sure to be another hit by clicking here.

Personal Note: I’ve ordered Raylen’s products many times, and it’s clear he is a true fan of the hobby.  We see it in his posts in the forums, and in the quality, fair pricing, and amazing service with his products.  So if you like to display your Star Wars 3.75″ collection loose, these items will truly enhance your collection and bring life to it.  And it’s not like the company that makes the figures is going to suddenly wake up and make things this cool – they’ve had TWO DECADES now, and still ignore requests for these items.
