Earlier this year, I shared word on a stunning new Expandable Diorama System coming our way from Mission 375. This dio system is a lot different in terms of aesthetic than what we’ve seen in the past. Want to build your own Gutrot station like Empire Toy Works? Need an environment for your Acid Rain collection? Then this is one campaign you’re going to want to check out for sure. That said though, these system will work with anything you can think to throw at it – Marvel, Star Wars, G.I.Joe, Transformers, you name it.
Take a look at the teaser from their upcoming campaign –
If this is by chance the first time hearing of this project, then no worries, I’ve got you covered. Here’s the scoop on Mission 375 from their About Page –
We are a small group of toy & figures lovers who wanna share our idea with the rest of the world.
Mission 375 diorama system and accessories are designed from scratch in a near-future-sci-fi theme and painted in weathering effects down to every little detail with love. They don’t just look cool, they are made to be very practical and customizable. The system is compact yet sophisticated. And it can be built or expanded into any scale of scenery with different combinations, assemblies, and accessories. It doesn’t matter if you have a large room or just a little bit of desk space, we enable action figures addicts like you to build this system into a diorama that fits your toys.
Sounds all sorts of awesome, right? In that case, let’s dive in to a breakdown of the building system, courtesy of Mission 375. They’ve shared closer looks at their structure system and accessories. Check it out –
The structure of Mission 375 diorama system is consisted of 4 basic parts: SKELETON FRAME, SYSTEM PANEL, INTERLOCKING RAIL, and CONNECTOR. With only 4 basic parts, they can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct different structure, base, scene, & stand.
- Skeleton Frame
Backbone of the structure – the design of double crossed-support ensures the rigidness of the framework, yet it maintains an industrial and near-future-sci-fi style. The skeleton frame is fully compatible with both wall & floor panel. It is also very awesome looking when using them without system panel.
- Interlocking Rail
With its 4 sides grooves, this rail design allows all direction interlocking to enable different possibility of assembly. Our universal “slide-n-lock” mechanism let you build and switch any of our structural parts or accessories without hassle. The dove-tail ridge & groove interlocking is a proven strong and secured joint engineering design throughout industries.
- System Panel
There is 2 types of panel: wall panel & floor panel.
The unique design of our system panels allows you to setup our diorama system in different themes to match the storyline of your toy collection. With its easy “pop-n-plug” mechanism, you can pop off or plug in the skeleton frame to switch between themes with ease. There are also plug in slots for accessories installation.
This corner piece of the system can be used as free standing structure and structural support.
Decoration accessories are very crucial to a good diorama set. These extra playable items enhance the detail of realism and bring additional content to your diorama. Mission 375 diorama system with accessories will definitely turn your Instagram toy photography or diorama display more spectacular.
- Ladder – how else your action figures get up and down
- Rail – action figures sometime need to lean on something
- Lights – with actual LIGHT UP LED inside in 2 styles: wall lamp and spot light
- Intercom – let your action figures stay in touch
- Security Camera – keep an eye on things!
- Mounting adapter – adapter that you let mount our accessories
- Hook – hang whatever you want on it
It’s great to see a new team in this space, as diorama sets and accessories are a much welcomed part of the collecting community. Outfits like Dio Warriors, Raginspoon and Marauder Inc have always been go-to’s for me, so I’m sure that Mission 375’s offerings will most definitely find their way to my shelves.
I mean, c’mon, look at how gorgeous those panels and accessories are! Weathered and compatible with all of my Acid Rain schwag? Count me in!

They took the funds and disappeared. Fraud.
I’m so very sorry to hear that, John. I’ve reached out to them via Kickstarter in hopes of getting a response. I’ll be sure to share it if one is received.
