Joerepro.com Mini Dio – Cobra Stage Backdrop Gallery

While at the 2017 Dirty South G.I. Joe Meet, we were fortunate enough to pick up one of the amazing Diorama backdrops offered by Chris at JoeRepro.com. He had such a wide selection available that it made hard for us to pick only one. In the end, we opted for the Cobra Stage Backdrop. 

This amazing piece is professionally printed on high quality gloss stock in vibrant colors. We mounted our piece on foam core, but you could easily stand this backdrop up without it. We’ve shared a gallery of 25 images showing the versatility of the dio backdrop, as it looks as much at home with vintage figures as it does with your modern era Cobra Army. 

You can get this backdrop and many others like it by visiting JoeRepro.com! Read on to check out our gallery, then join us after the break to share your thoughts with us on the Cobra Island Forums
