• Celebration VI Diorama Workshop Launches Action Figure Fund

      The Star Wars Diorama Workshop, a fixture at Star Wars Celebration events since 2002, is celebrating its tenth anniversary by producing the largest ever diorama display featuring a Return to Tatooine. But rather than just building a Mos Eisley diorama like a decade ago, this year’s version will feature the entire planet spread out over 400 linear feet of tables, and covering both the original and prequel trilogies.




      Once again, Frank Diorio and his hardworking crew are soliciting fellow fans to send in Tatooine-related figures, ships, or creatures, or a contribution to help buy the necessary total so that every youngster who takes part in building the diorama will be able to take home his or her piece plus at least one accompanying toy.


      “My staff and I have gotten the ball rolling with 240 figures, beasts, and ships from our own collections or purchased on eBay,” Diorio said. “And even with Hasbro’s generous donation of additional toys, we fear that because of the massive size of the diorama, the 400 to 500 figures we usually accumulate won’t even cover half the number that we need.”


      The Diorama Workshop’s goal is to collect and buy 2,000 Star Wars toys, all of which will be given to young diorama builders on the last day of the show. If you have toys to donate, you can bring them to the Workshop at Celebration or send them in advance no later than Aug. 19 to:


      CVI Diorama Workshop Fund
      C/O Philip Kelley
      3923 Promenade Square Dr., Apt 4214
      Orlando, FL 32837 USA


      Or you send a donation via PayPal to CVIAFF@dioramaworkshop.com. All donors will receive a special Diorama Workshop gift package. For more details see: http://dioramaworkshop.com/ws.php?pr...1&categoryId=3

      Definitely! But I'm going to take my time and enjoy it. Part of the fun of prop collecting is acquiring the pieces.

      That was good and we got "Central - South American Dictator Eaten By Tiger - goes great with cocaine!"

      You spell Zero "Cyril."

      Dammit, Tycho, I'm gonna be thinking about that now until next January!

      It wasn't a bad season. Different but shaking it up was good.

      But is it add-on armor or a complete 1-piece Transformer?

      I'd prefer the latter.

      I saw the pics. Looks good. Maybe the face

      Swearing not allowed anywhere in the forums

      Whoever is swearing has to be from the Empire side. The Rebel Alliance will not use such lanaguage.

      I did love Archer-Vice!

      Wonder if Krieger is still Krieger?

      I've completed the season.

      Best season ever!

      Women-in-prison! Oh yeah! I actually found Ava's storyline the most interesting.

      MP-22 Ultra Magnus is now confirmed to be an all new mold, no white cab Prime.

      I would have taken it either way, but its probably better
