PACKAGING: The polystone diorama is packaged within a full color box that is visually exciting to look at. The package features several high resolution images of the diorama with Timber and similar design and concept as the package art on the individual 12" figures. The official GI Joe logo is also boldly displayed on all sides of the box.
SCULPT: The polystone enviroment is a life-like rendition of the remains of a war-ravaged building. The architectural details on this diorama are truly impressive and Sideshow's artists have truly gone the extra mile to provide collectors with the most realistic environment for their figures.
Impressively, the diorama environment is fully detailed all around which offers endless display possibilities using both the interior or exterior sides of the piece. The interior of the blown-up building's floor is riddled with bullet casings and the exterior and windowsills are covered in snow. The structural ruins features exposed bricks and carpentry which gives the sculpted environment an even more realistic look overall.
This highly-impressive diorama also includes a beautifully rendered polystone figure of Snake Eye's loyal mascot Timber which is a great companion piece for the snowy environment. Timber is posed in an attack-ready stance and has a menacing angry expression which looks amazingly life-like.
PAINT: Both the environment and wolf are painted exquisitely by Sideshow's talented artists with a mixture of different techniques and colors which breathe life into the piece. Timber features a vivid blend of black and grey hues on his body and all the minor facial details are highlighted accurately making the wolf look incredibly life-like.

Additionally, the only way to acquire Snake Eye's mascot Timber is by purchasing this piece.
