I'm sure many of you have already seen these pictures...but I had to share.

This store is in British Columbia, maybe 2 hours north of Seattle. The Hoth one is my favorite. The carnage is hilarious.

Really nice detail on the buildings and other props. I wonder how they made things like the Endor landing platform.

Really neat details. He also did a whole GI Joe section -- check out the Cobra mountain fortress that morphs into Echo Base.

Wow! :shocked:

They need closeup shots though. can't appreciate fully without closeup shots.

The GiJoe sections looks awesome too.

those are awesome. I would like to know how they done all of that, espically the landing platform on endor, and the deathstar landing bay.

That Endor one is really impressive. In fact all of them are pretty impressive. Love the detail.

very cool stuff. this must be a warehouse or something, some of those displays are way to big to be in a house

When I was a kid, I used to always dream about what the coolest toy store in the world would look like. This is pretty much it. :cool: I sometimes wish that I was dedicated enough to the hobby to put together something like this; but then I think "Somebody has to dust it everyday, what a pain in the butt that would be."

I have seen them in person a number of times - they are SICK. And (not that it matters, we're just ogling his dioramas) the owner is an AWESOME guy - very interested in helping collectors by ordering in special things and giving deals when he can. Deal with ToyTraders in Langley, BC if you ever have the chance! [/shamelessplug]

That's not too far away. Maybe I'll make it up there sometime. I'm not sure when or if the passport requirement goes into effect for crossing the border. I should probably look into getting mine renewed. It expired in 1991 and has a picture from when I was 16.

I saw them when the link was first put up, but just now noticed the buttons that let you see the other pictures - yep, I'm retarded. :D

These things are SICK! That's a crapload of AT-ATs. It's weird to see vintage stuff next to modern stuff in many of them, but still very cool.
