While I wasn’t, sadly, at Celebration the entire weekend, for the time I was there, I continually checked in at the Diorama/Hasbro booth to see how progress was coming on their Cloud City recreation. There’s something neat about seeing so many fans come together and build something unique and amazing with their own hands and a bunch of toys. Now you can see their progress all at once thanks to this new video from Hasbro:
Frank D’iorio’s Diorama Workshop built a massive Cloud City diorama at the Hasbro booth! Constructed over the course of 4 days, the diorama was created through a combination of the Diorama Workshop’s team of 12 builders and the help of approximately 1500 fans who customized pieces at Star Wars Celebration. The diorama is 640 square feet and consists of over 400 setpieces, including approximately 800 figures and toys by Hasbro and Kenner.
When I was younger and my collection more manageable, I used to love recreating scenes from the film with my figures in my own makeshift dioramas, so something like this on such a large scale is just impressive!
