Cool Stuff: Star Wars Hoth LEGO Diorama

Mark Borlase created a 5 foot by 10 foot Star Wars Hoth diorama using LEGO. The display took over 4 years and $3000 to create, and consists of over 55,000 pieces, 50 real LED lights and a remote controled mechanism which deploys troops from the AT-ATs. All the lights are controlled by 1-9v train regulator and the doors are controlled by a second 9v regulator. The diorama won the recent Star Wars LEGO creation challenge and will be featured in the official LEGO magazine. The photos below show the Sick bay with custom medical droid and bacta tank, a complete interior view of Echo base. You can see Chewie is doing some last minute welding work on the Millennium Falcon, as well as a custom gantry for the mechanics to work on the X-wings, complete with overhead and runway lighting.

You can see more photos on Mark's Flickr page.
