The Collectors Showcase presents the beginning of our new series: Berlin 1938. A series meant to chronicle, in miniature, Berlin at the height of the Third Reich's pre-war power. The first diorama offering is the Fuhrer's Reichkanzlei office complete with map table, lamps and removable swastika flag. The initial figure set offerings are the figures and personalities that brought the Western world to the edge of oblivion. Each figure comes with a removable hat allowing greater flexibility in display. The launch of this series heralds a long view of the great variety of Berlin locales available to the collector. Each vignette setting brings the collector another view of the city's central points throughout the Nazi period. Sold Out!
