You guys are great! Thank you for the advice. I got it last week and it looks great. I opened it, set everything up, and called the plumber as something got backed up. Everything looks great and flushes to give sir captain a swirley.


It is a good lookin piece...
You can always display it without the toilet seat. Or you can customize it to add a water tank above the toilet seat and even a sink to wash their hands after they're done...

I have a head that I took off the Chrome C-3PO that I planned to put in the toilet area and call him C-3PP-Oh.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

Can anyone post a pic of the base *without* the toilet seat? I understand it's removable, but I've yet to see one without that attached. On the fence about getting this one, but I'm not a fan of the aforementioned.


Thanks in advance scummers!

Sorry mine is back in the original box for a few more months. But from what I remember there is only a small hole remaining if you intend to display it without the toilet seat. We always like to make jokes about it but the toilet seat doesn't look bad when seeing it in person.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

Without that piece, It definately looks like something missing. I don't think that you'd get away with it.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

You could always paint that metal rod white and thus it will be better hidden. But the toilet seat is a must!

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

This is really a nice piece. I have friends and family that are not into collecting and they really have a posative reaction to this. Even thought they see it as violent they seem to like it.

I think it looks better without it, IMO.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

Indeed... But I easily passed on it, not my thing. I much prefer the regular version.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

I've been on the fence about picking up the regular version. Still haven't done it though. This FB application looks better IMO, but I could see how some would prefer the regular version.

Congrats to the people who picked this up.

Looking at the edition size of 50. I see why this went so fast. Though i like the reg version better.

Even though I love the painted one a lot better, I think it was real weak that there was no heads up about this release...I was asleep at 7am pst...Thanks, SS.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

I like the painted version so much better. I simply cannot see the appeal of these faux bronze ones.

Re: Diplomatic Mission Dio

So got my Faux Bronze Diplomatic Mission and noticed something funny. The cardboard shipping box states "Darth Vader Coking Captain Antilles". Did anybody elses cardboard shipping box say that? I totally expected a different statue...
And for anybody who got one did this Faux bronze look different than the others? It looks more like aged bronze and different than the others.

The shipping box on my FB Dio has the same mis-spelling. It's just on the outer box though. Great piece!!
