Extreme Sets produce cardboard based diorama sets designed to work for your display set ups and toy photography. They interconnect using a slot system allowing for both simple and complex staging areas. We’ve been a big fan of them here since getting a hold of some last year. Today we are going to take a look at another one from their latest wave, Multiverse Collection Series 5. The Abandoned House 2.0 is an upgraded version of their original Wave 1 Abandoned House set, just like the Deranged Alley 2.0 is an upgrade of the original (and both are my personal favs now).
This set comes with 6 wall panels, 3 floor panels, and 2 columns. 4 of the wall panels now have doors that are pre cut to open and close. This door aspect has been awesome in my opinion, especially for photography. It allows for great wide angle shots and adds dimension to the scene. And if you have the room in your display, you can layer figs behind them on both sides. The entire set has a LOT of graffiti on it. Even the floors. This differentiates it from the original set. While it is well done, I would have preferred a little less. Or at least a couple panels with, a couple without. Apparently some cardboard teenage delinquents got in there and really went to town.
Tabbing is great, all panels slide together well and stay in place. These sets now use a white backing to add some stability to the cardboard, that also helps with the ease of tabbing. I personally put a little thick tape along the seems of the floor panels on the under-side to keep them together tight.
Bottom line, it’s another solid set for the 1:12 / 6 inch scale, and if you want to display or shoot horror figures, zombies, or just straight creepy urban figs (think – Batman and his baddies), then this will work. There are enough to choose from now that you can get something for almost all the genres.
