Gene of Paragon will be in room 5110. Here has a bunch of new foam terrain products. They look really nice. 

Here are some photos of a diorama I will be displaying during the show.

I call it “Reno’s Last Chance.”

The base is a new piece that I am bringing to the show. We call it Montana Bluffs. I have also done a covered wagon with accessories.

It is not a playset. The scenic piece comes in two pieces that form a 36 x 24 x 4.5 diorama piece. It comes completely painted and flocked and sells for $235.00.

The Wagon sells for $42.00 and comes with the cover and a removable insert (crates and sacks)

The barriers sell for $12.00 a piece.

You can inquire with Gene about the Custer’s Battlefield, Bloody Lane and Burnside’s Bridge pieces.

We are excited to be a part of the 2019 Chicago Toy Solider Show. Room trading will begin on Thursday, September 19th through Saturday, September 21st. We are looking forward to meeting more of our amazing customers.

We are in Room 5201 and our tables are in the Lower Level Main Room South. Tables 301A, 302-305.

We will accept cash, credit cards and checks!

At the show, we will have two (2) new prototype Alamo buildings – the Kitchen and the Lunette! We will have the painted/finished buildings available for purchase. Below are the photos of the prototypes:

Kichen1Kichen2Kichen3

The Kitchen. The right side of the kitchen designed to be placed next to the Main Entry Gate Building #TS222. The kitchen will be painted to match the current Alamo buildings.

Lunette1Lunette2Lunette3Lunette4

The Lunette. The Lunette goes in front of the Main Entry Gate Building #TS222. It will be painted in earth tones similar to what you find in Mark’s Lemon’s Book – The Illustrated Alamo 1836.

We will also be carrying many more Expeditionary Force figure sets, Chin Toys/Engineer Basevich. We will definitely have the Ex Force sets in Chicago and hope to have the Chin Toys/Engineer Basevich as well.

We have received a large restock of the Atherton Scenics diorama pieces.

New stock of our TSSD Foam pieces and have arrived and we expect more over the next week.

We will be bringing many of these pieces with us to Chicago.

Christmas Workshop1Christmas Workshop2Christmas Workshop3

Santa’s Workshop can be the centerpiece of your Christmas display. This finely crafted foam piece is the hub where the elves are hard at work building the toys that Santa delivers every year to good boys and girls.

The Workshop will be available on its own ($125 plus shipping) or as part of an LOD display set ($160 plus shipping).

The display set includes the following – Santa’s Workshop, Santa’s Christmas Delivery figure set, a bag of decorative snow, five assorted sisal trees, and eight LOD gifts in four colors (blue and pink shown).

This set will be on the website this weekend and available for pre-order. I will also have them at the Chicago Toy Soldier Show.

Merry (early) Christmas from LOD 😊
