New 1/12 scale diorama – Police Interrogation Room

I don’t know what Iceman did, but he landed himself in the interrogation room.

This is my new diorama that was built with removable walls all around. That allows for 360 degrees of shooting. I knew I was going to try to make more realistic photos with this dio, so I wanted to get the ceiling in there too. It is simulating standard overhead fluorescent lighting you would find in the police station.

The wall with the glass window is removable to allow the rooms to simulate a hallway as well.

All of the furniture was scratch built. In the observation room, I made a desk from wood. I don’t have a chair yet for that room. The computer on the desk is scratch built as well, using tag board.

In the interrogation room, the table is made of wood, with metal loops for locking down a criminal. The chairs are plastic frames with wood seat and back.

On the walls, there are simulated cork boards with information I thought one would find in a police station. Maps, CPR instructions, fire exits, and wanted bulletins.

This was a lot of fun to make. It was different from my last build, of the giant pier scene. In some ways it was harder with more walls to make. The doors and window were a bit tougher too, since I had to make sure it was all as straight as I could make it.

Iceman – Marvel Legends – Juggernaut Series

 

Iceman is the second figure I am looking at from the Juggernaut Wave, or the X-Men wave as we might want to call it.

If you are going to have an X-Men wave, you should probably add in one of the original members from the 1963 comic X-Men #1. Back then, Bobby looked more like a snowball, so I am glad they went with a newer version of the figure, though it could have been fun playing with a well articulated snowman.

Iceman is molded in clear and blue parts. He is based off of Spider-Man’s body, so you know you are going to get some extra good movement from him. He has one fist and one open hand. Good for fighting and adding ice effects later.

He does not come with any extra accessories. Pegged in the back is an ice collar. It gives a little something extra to the figure for a nice touch.

Along with the ice on his back, he also has a great head sculpt that looks like his hair is ice. He also has ice effects on his forearms, hands, and lower shins. He is in bare feet, which seem about right, but feels a little funny. We don’t have a lot of super heroes running around in their bare feet. Not that Bobby needs shoes anyway.

Overall this is a pretty decent figure. It is nothing special, though the clear body is something fun. All of the inner workings of the toy are there on display. He would probably be a figure I would have been able to skip, if not for the Juggernaut arm I needed. He will take up residence on the shelf, and probably not come out to play very often. Then again, I may have to play with him just to see what he can do under some special lighting.
