G.I. Joe Con 2013: Dios and Customs Part 2

Now it’s time for the big reveal! The dioramas that were hands down the coolest ones shown off at Joe Con 2013. Be sure to click on the pics to check out all the sweet details!

Jungle Dio

The jungle themed dio was my favorite one at Joe Con 2013. There was just so much damned detail packed into this thing. One thing that I really loved was that it made use of classic Joe vehicles and battle stations to help fill out the dio.

Croc Master is perfect for this dio. And the Cobra surveillance post fits in perfectly.

Steampunk Dio

While I’m really over Steam Punk as a whole, this steam punk themed G.I. Joe dio was amazeballs. Most of the customized figures made for this thing were simply amazing by themselves, much less just small pieces in an overall package.

It’s an airship battle! Wooo!

Hazard of airship travel: Harpoon wielding maniacs.

Tut tut, it’s Baron Von Destro and his Baroness!

Love the medical dude, love the weapons locker, and love that gun.

Couldn’t resist another shot of that doctor.

Love the brain robot thing.

Lab Break In

The final dio that I liked a lot was a scene depicting the Joes under attack after they broke into a secret lab. It was really well done, especially the outside of the lab where the cobra troopers crashed through a fence and were about to storm the Joes.

  • Kenny Mattes

    Hey Vincent, Thanks for your comments on my jungle diorama. I’m glad you liked it and honored that you posted it on your site as one of your favorites. Above the Steampunk no less. It did take a lot of work. And if you noticed something new each time you looked at it then I achieved what I was after. I took a ton of pictures of it in various stages of creation. This piece was actually part of a much larger scene. I also built a castle and a giant volcano.

  • Cool Kenny! Do you have pics of the other ones hosted somewhere?

  • Check out my Facebook page to see various aspects of the project. The Castle and Volcano pictures are there. I am trying to update it with other pictures of the dio ass well. https://www.facebook.com/GiJoeInsurgenceDiorama
