Rise of Cobra The Pit Command Center Custom DIO

roc-pit-command-center-playset
Thanks to HISSTANK.com boards member gk11973 for posting up his custom ROC Pit Command Center DIO.

"I built this a few years ago, when the ROC movie was out. I always thought the control room in the PIT was pretty cool and wanted to make my own. It's pretty much the only custom thing I have made, but I thought it was cool and wanted to share it."

Many more Rise of Cobra The Pit Command Center images after the jump.

I built this a few years ago, when the ROC movie was out. I always thought the control room in the PIT was pretty cool and wanted to make my own. It's pretty much the only custom thing I have made, but I thought it was cool and wanted to share it. Some of the panels have started to come loose, but I'm not sure I can take it apart to repair it without doing damage. For the time being I have decided to just leave it be. One other neat detail...Although you can't tell in the pics, all of the chairs are mounted on wood bases and have dial pins that allow them swivel. In the background, you can see bits of pieces of my Joe room, I want to do a post showing that too, but everytime I try to upload pics from it, they fail or I get an error message. Hopefully I can get that issue worked out soon so I can share my room with everyone. In the meantime, hope you enjoy the command room.
Darth Awgmon:
Super-cool control room. Very slick. Great job. And your Joe room looks very cool in the background. My Joe room was featured recently on an episode of Hoarders.
steve2477:
Awesome dio.
danielgogeta:
Real sweetness! love the control panels!
Taterbot:

1FormidableJoe:
Superb dio! Hasbro can we get dioramas like this please?
Danney:

RolandofGilead:
Looks great, but it needs figures for best display.

I may add a few pics with figures.
RogueWingnut:
How'd you do the screens? As someone building a Cobra Command Center Dio...I'm curious.
steve2477:
Show some more pics with a load of figures displayed, second viewing is awesome as well.
Splintershins:
Very cool.
Kaboomskie:
@gk11973

What's the brand of your printer?
dpstro:
Would love to see some figures in it. Looks right out of the movie. If something like this could be produced and add on rooms could be sold seperate, it would be a hit. This is how all futrue Joe bases should be made.

It's just an HP photo printer, using photo paper and highest setting.

The screens are all results of google image searches. I typed in things like green radar or green laser and just saved images I liked. Several of them are actually phone screen captures. Then I printed them on photo paper using the highest quality setting. and then mounted them on poster board to give them added depth. I had planned to do a similar cobra base as well, and have a lot of red and blue screen images for them. maybe someday....
gk11973:
Added some pics with figures as requested. Enjoy!
RolandofGilead:
Wow! It's even better with figures.
CG23:
Awesome!
DARKWIND:
Kick ass!!!
GAAWAY:
Beautiful! I hope some day to do something like this. Great job.
wyojoe:
Excellent work! I love control room dio's, and you really captured the high tech feel from the movie. Spot on, spot on.

Oh, excellent display's in the background also... I saw the door to the room and shelf's and it looke's just like my interior door (and shelf with Joe's on it), I was like "WTF?".. lol
ShadowNinja:
That a good thing? Hoarders isnt a show to be proud to be featured on my friend.

MIGHTY69KWINN:
Very nice work indeed. Acouple of years ago i played with an idea like those panels but lit up. I had some pictures of radar screens and such applied to peel off stickers. Placed it on a thin plexiglass or polycarbonate and had a thin white or black sheet behind that and used mini LED lights to light it up. Iwas planning on using it for retrofitting some models, but never got around to it.Fiber optics work well too.
shawn:
thanks for the pics. thanks for the helpful hits i have alot of unfinished work, just need to make the trim work like yours.
