Dagobah Diorama
« on: July 14, 2010, 11:27:27 AM »

Hey Snowtroopers!!!  It has been a while!  Here's my most recent diorama is Dagobah.  This time, in a closet in the basement of our new (old) house...







If you have a sharp eye, you noticed that the scene in the middle of the diorama in the first couple of pictures is different.  In the past, any representation of Dagobah I did, had multiple Lukes, R2s and Yodas. 



This time I went with a turntable, so only one scene is visible at any given time:



I also sculpey-ted a couple of bog-wings, to fly over the swamp:



And here as a custom figure I customized for the dio:  Magic Tree Yoda





And yes, his upper body is still removable:



A movie illustrating how Magic Tree Yoda's upper half, gets switched up from the log into the turntable portion of the diorama is here:  http://s267.photobucket.com/albums/ii303/Droidworld/DIORAMAS/?action=view&current=MagicTreeYoda.mp4

Here are some pics of Yoda's Hut.  (Can't wait for the new Luke Bespin!)









SWEET DAGOBAH DREAMS SNOWTROOPERS!!!




I have several custom figures, avatars, cardbacks, stickers and of course, dioramas, at:  http://s267.photobucket.com/home/Droidworld/allalbums

Thanks for looking, your questions, comments or otherwise are always welcome.

Wow. Well you certainly missed out on getting this one into the diorama contest we had a while ago.

Awesome work.

Thanks Hellboy!  Perhaps when I am finally finished tweaking it, and adding new as well as custom figures etc, another contest will be around...in two years!!!

Thanks Mit_Othy!  Well I first painted the backdrop at the beginning of April, but did Endor (below Dagobah) first.  I started into Dagobah around mid-June, and still have little tweaks to do.  So about four weekends of actual work?

I'm definitely a fan of your work. I've got some of your previous diorama pics saved on my HD anytime I need some inspiration.  This is your best setup so far without a doubt.  :)`

Thanks for the info DroidWorld. I really like seeing other collector's dioramas, they have always amazed me. It is something I wish I had the time, patience, and room to do more often.

Thanks napseeker, and Mit_Othy!  I finally have a bit of time, and hope to get in some customized figures for Dagobah, and a few tweeks to the dio.  Will post pics when that happens, of course!
