Welcome to the forum.
Very nice collection.  :o
I really like your set up. Not to mention seeing the Lego all put together. Well done.

I do have one diorama setup at the moment, but it's kinda small right now.  I'm planning on moving into a house in the next year or two (I'm in a townhouse right now), and my wife is gonna give me the entire basement to do anything Star Wars related for it.  Yeah baby!  Here's a link to the pic to the simple diorama...

Ya' I'm basicly in the same boat !!! We live in a mobile home, but our land (6 acres) is payed off and we hope to build in about 2 years. I get half the basement for SW room !! In the mean time I'm fixing up part of my shop (30'x40' polebarn) to display my toys & Dios !!!

I built a box to hold my 3D Dios !! Check it out here !!!

That is absolutely gorgeous work you've done there!  How long did it take you to make something like that?  Great job!

It took about a month to design and build . It could be done in a weekend, but I don't get in a hurry !!!!

Updated the pictures in my gallery #1.  Please keep in mind that I have less than 1/2 of what I currently own.  My office where everything is kept is too small, and I have about 12 long Rubbermaid containers filled with stuff (waiting for a new home next year).

12 Rubbermaids :o  You definitely need that new house Chris!  Your stuff looks great except for that Bears jersey, Purple and Gold would look a lot better :P  Do you have mostly loose stuff or both loose and carded/boxed?

Everything that is boxed away are pretty much carded figures.  There are other odds & ends in those containers, but mostly the carded figures.  I do have every one of them labeled so that if I need to find something right away, I can do so quickly withouth having to search every box (like Matt recently did... hehehe).

And yes, I do need a new house.  The wife & I are talking about getting a bigger hosue next year, and the plan will be me having full reign over the basement for my Star Wars collection.

I like the Luke Skywalker on his Speeder Bike giving us a quick tour of your collection room.  ;D

Very nice Chris. Great to see small short flicks of one's collection.   8)

Thanks Dale!  I appreciate that nice feedback.  Didn't you just love the sound effects I did with that speeder bike clip?   ;D
