I’ve covered the awesome guys from TS118 plenty of times in the past…and they’ve given me good reason to do so. They do some absolutely awesome work. A big thanks to GlenMarc (Flash) once again for putting us in the loop for one of their latest projects…another Dynamic Modular Diorama, entitled “Operation: Snake Rising”. Here are some notes:
– Inspired by oriental movies and ninja-themed displays.
– Displayed last weekend October 2-3, 2010 at the Robinson’s Place Manila Mall (Philippines) in celebration of Collecticon 2010, organized by Hobbiworx and PinoyToyKolektors (PTK).
– Brought to you by the same team that came up with O: Shock and Awe, O: Killzone, O: Forced Entry, O: Gothic Serpent, O: Sidewinder Verde, O: Grayia Seize-r, and O: Ivory Blanket…the Philippines only local 3 3/4 (1:18) Joe online community..TS118
– This diorama changes display every three to four hours. It is the first of its kind in the Philippines for action figures (regardless of scale). We dubbed it as a “dynamic modular diorama” or DMD. In this case, it is called Dynamic Modular DOJO-rama.
– Took 3 weekends of preparation and actual dio-work to complete (figures/structures/vehicles). Mostly done on Saturdays only.
– Collaboration done by at least 8-10 members (builders, pledgers/financiers, consultants, etc.).
– Dojo panels allowed the team to display it as U-shaped to show dojo interior, or in a straight line to simulate the dojo facade.
– Featured GI Joe customs in 25A body (Slice, Dice, Jinx DDP, unmasked SS & SE) plus hidden mickeys (Deadpool Sensei, Kakashi Sensei, Deathstroke, Rha’s Al Ghul, and a tribute to the legend…BRUCE LEE).
They also have a dedicated Photobucket album here, and I’ve mirrored a number of the awesome images below:

Along with all of this, they’ve posted some videos of set up, too…I’ll embed all of those after the jump.
Once again, a HUGE shout out to the guys at TS118 for their awesome work on this stuff and their boundless enthusiasm for the world of G.I. Joe. Very cool to see. Keep it up, guys!
