Make Your Own Action Scene With P-Bandai’s Diorama Set
Premium Bandai to release full feature diorama set.
Premium Bandai, the high-end retailer for Bandai products, will be releasing a diorama set created in cooperation with Tsuburaya Productions.
The set will include working stage lights, hoists for miniature jets, and a cellphone camera dolly to film dynamic scenes. Other items included are three different skylines for creating a varied range of emotion in scenes as well as destroyed versions of the miniature homes that come with the set.
The set, created in full partnership with Tsuburaya, aims to replicate the experience of filming your own tokusatsu action sequences at a smaller scale. All details were created from documents and interviews gathered from staff members that worked on the filming of various Tsuburaya productions throughout the year. Artists from LSS, Light Sculpture Studio, which does regular modeling work for Tsuburaya, created the three skylines used in the diorama set. An interview with former Tsuburaya Production Manager Ooka Shinichi will also be released to those who purchase this set.
The preorder period for the set is listed as being from the 22nd of July to the 31st of October with a scheduled release of February 2015 with a price tag of $260 USD.
