Thank you to Extreme-Sets for sending along their Animated Sewer (2.0) 1/12 Scale Pop-Up Diorama for review. 

Availability: October 2022

The packaging is standard for the line, including the brown shipping box, which actually opens up by lifting the front up, rather than opening it by the side. This is the first-time I’ve seen Extreme-Sets offer a different way to open the brown box, and in my opinion is a better way as you can sort through the panels easier to find the ones you want to use.

Animated Sewer 2.0 features the likeness of the interior sewers of New York City as depicted in the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series of the 1980’s and 1990’s. This is best used for cartoon and animated inspired figures, and while Turtles is where it shines, it could be used for other brands as well.

The setup is familiar if you’ve had the pleasure of setting up other sets such as Sector 6 and Docking Bay, with the two sewer openings requiring the use of the included pieces placed inside it to create the 3D panels. This concept has been used on other sets as well, and if you have some practice putting these sets together, this one shouldn’t be a problem.


The set includes two 3D sewer openings that can also be closed with the included brick panels (just slide those into the 3D panels), two wall panels (one with a 3D ladder, and the other with items on a shelf, 5 tall columns (4 of which will be used for the sides of the walls, and 1 will be extra), a 3D television as you may recall from the 1980’s (just as you also saw the Turtles used on the animated series), a rug and a ground panel to look like concrete. There are also two room dividers, that can fold up or be placed together.


As this is mostly used for turtles among toy photographers, I went ahead and took some of my new additions from the classic cartoon line from NECA and took advantage of this setup, to place some of these around. The Extreme-Sets furniture works well for this set, and to place the turtles in the seats to watch television (furniture sold separately).


The artwork on this is phenomenal, especially the bricks on the walls, rug, retro television, and all the details such as the shelving and 3D ladder. There is a lot of room to fill this up with action figures for photography or just display.

Overall, Extreme-Sets have once again outdone themselves and this is truly an amazing set with a lot of great display, play and photography options. The artwork is amazing, great quality and attention to detail on the wall panels, ladder, television and rug. This is definitely something you need to own especially if you buy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, no matter if you are an adult of child. This makes a great option to display or photograph your figures for photography and toy display.
