Please contact Zilli/The_sumo (it’s the same person) in this board: http://www.playmo-convention.de/board/index.php! He is the organisator of the convention.

Oh cheng, in my opinion the exhibitors will not sell their dioramas. They have create and build them with a lot of blood of there hearts (It’s a german metapher). But, I think, “Josie” wants to sell his diorama. He is also a member by “Customize it”!

unfortunately i wasnt able to be in wob for the convention... however obviously ppl do buy and trade but the dioramas r usually only made to look at - at least thats the way i understand it. there might be some exceptions to this, like josie for example but in general ppl build these grand themes simply to show what one can do with playmobil, so the dioramas are solely exhibition items ;)
