Hi fellas. I am considering making a custom 12" scale Early Bird to display the GG figures. I am just trying to see how much interest there would be in it before I proceed. You may have seen some of my past work and my display cabinets. If its done it would most likely be made out of foamboard and the back would be 4' wide x 2' high and the base would be 1' probably none of the removable tags, just the black area with names. No pegs or holes either.
I'm thinking they would cost around $180.
Thoughts?

I do a lot of display cabinets and custom figure boxes on the side, I am a signmaker by trade.

Would it have the base, too?
I'd be up for one!

Yes. I think it would be as it is without the removable tags, black with the names. so 1' wide x 4' long.

So you are talking about this huh? http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/early_bird_display.jpg

$180 for foam core with graphics? Seems like a lot to me, but it all depends on the quality of the graphics and build. I'd like one, but I think you going to have to build one to see what we would be buying.

I meant the plastic base which had the rotating figure stands on it.

This is the one. I will build one to see how much work it takes and price it accordingly if there seems to be enough interest in them here.

I would go for it if you made the plastic base version to be honest... best visual appeal IMO.

Are you talking about the white plastic tray? Or do you mean the entire other gray display with the rotating pegs?

I'd say there's a good chance GG will produce the plastic version (w/cardboard backdrop) at some point.

Guys, am I confused because I don't think the one with the plastic base has anything to do with an Early Bird display.
Please advise if I am wrong.
Maybe your speaking of the Collectors Action Stand?
In any case that could be a possibility

Your reffering to the Early Bird display correct?
Does the price sound reasonable to you guys?

Sounds like a lil confusion... gonna find a pic. When I was a lil spud I had a grey plastic stand and I think it was an xwing/space scene as the backdrop. I think the figs rotated slightly but I dont remember fully. If I can find a pic I will post.

Yes, there were stickers which had the figures names and each little round spot had a peg and rotated.
That is what I was talking about. I would buy that.

Here's what you guys want and I wouldn't count on GG making this. http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/11111111111111111111111111111111188888888888888888 8881111111111.jpg

I'm interested in a display stand too. I like the plastic stand of the second display but I love the graphics of the first display w/ the original 12 back artwork of the characters. If it turns out well, I would certainly buy this.

Its pretty much going to be a special order type thing if anyone is interested. There isn't enough interest to do any kind of quantity of them.
PM me if you are ready.
Thanks

You need at least make one to show us. You really can't get people interested in something if we don't know what we will be getting. Meaning quality of the materials, workmanship and graphics.
