Oh man Daigho, that's pretty sweet...  And do I see IG-88's head appropriately placed?  Very nice...  :)

Greg, do you happen to have more photos as well?  I'd like to see more details on it and if there's an exterior and stuff...  Everyone collecting should have a looksee at that.  That's a really accurate set up man.

Wow, this is just amazing Greg.  Love it, love it!  I'll comment in more detail soon.  I just spoke with Stephen Hayford the other day and he made a great cantina too.

I saw these over at RS (based on a tip from Smartypants).  All I can say is WOW.  As an amateur diorama building, I'm stunned at the way this all came together.  Simply amazing.

I'm not worthy to compliment this piece of work. I'll go through and talk about each piece Daigo.

The tables: look great although just tad to big but the replication is top notch, I also like hte lights built in.

The stools look great.

Those booth seats are amazing they actually look like you could sit on them.

The droid detector is amazing looks like  a screen cap.

Great job on the IG 88 head cast placed all over,they look perfect, as does all the metal tubing you got bent around.

The giant rockover the Bar looks great too and the rubber wiring all around the bar makes it look like a edge that they would have on a big table/bar like htat.

Great Job Daigo

WOW!!!!  :o

That is amazing Daigo-Bah!

What kind of lights did you use for over the bar? They seem very white, which looks great! More pics please!!!

more pics.  more pics.  this is really great, i can't believe how realistic this looks.  but where's Chewie and DR. E?  the only things i'd suggest is to add some fine sand in some of the corners, i don't know how to get to stay in place other then glue.

Thanks guys!  Here are a few more:











To answer a few questions/comments:
1) The walls are styrofoam sheets coated in plaster of paris and sanded down lightly.
2) I agree the tables are a bit larger than they should be!  I couldn't find plumbing caps a little smaller.
3) The lighting in the tables and above the bar are X-mas lights.
4) I didn't include figures whose sculpts I can't like, including Evazan and Wolfman.  I am hoping to get another early bird Chewie to put in there, and the Praying Mantis.
5) There isn't an exterior unfortunately... seems like every dio I make is more of a miniature movie set as opposed to a playset, so there are a lot of exposed parts "off-camera"!

WOW! :o

I feel like I'm watching ANH with alternate camera angles! The walls and floor are very realistic. That drink dispenser is great! Wonderful, wonderful work!

Does that "blue cross" thing at the entrance light up?
