We’re back with a new gallery for one of the Extreme Sets Pop-Up Dioramas. With my latest photo shoot, I take a look at the Abandoned House Pop-Up Diorama, which Extreme sets provided for review. This set features six 12″ tall by 20″ wide panels as well as a pop-up bookcase. Each panel depicts a dilapidated wall, complete with peeling wallpaper, broken drywall, creepy doors and windows. The panels can be connected and combined in numerous ways to create a spooky haunted house, perfect for many horror figures in 6″ to 7″ scale. If you connected every piece together with this set, it would create a backdrop that is 126″ wide! I put this set through the paces, using a few horror figures from NECA to highlight how well this sets works with them.

This wound up being another really fun dio display from Extreme Sets. With so many horror figures out and more on the horizon, finding the right way to display them can be tough. As someone who photographs figures for reviews, I love setting up scenes. Normally I was using a mix of dio pieces from DST, print outs, smaller dio pieces that are included with the figures or my own cobbled together pieces. Now this Abandoned House dio is going to be another tool for use in those types of photo shoots.
The panels here feature crisp graphics that mesh well together, looking even more realistic than the alleyway or Sector 09 sets. The damaged hallways walls include peeling wallpaper, exposed drywall and cracks and holes. A few of the panels include different doors, with some being opened. There are also some windows, complete with nighttime outdoor scenes already depicted. Due to the nature of the designs, you create cramped hallways, giant rooms or even a creepy hotel space. The bookcase features double sided printing, with the back looking like a gray wood grain. This can be used to create hidden doorways, pushed against the wall or as an added mid-room display piece. The thicker cardboard used causes those small flaps on the bottom to be bowed slightly, so a little extra work will be needed to flatten that out so it can sit more flush against the wall.
I really can’t ask for much more with this. The set works surprisingly well well an assortment of horror figures. If you happen to own any of the Diamond Select Toys office diorama pieces (included with Gotham and x-Files figures), then you an get really creative here. Check out some highlight photos below and the full gallery after that.
