In 2015, Hot-Toys showcased some of their Star Wars 1/6th scale collectable figures within a diorama of the Millennium Falcon Cockpit. Unfortunately they let the collecting community down by not producing this truly epic piece. Some talented modellers have chosen to build their own, but I am nowhere near clever enough to consider taking something like that on.
Fortunately, JazzInc have their own range of Star Wars diorama’s especially designed to show off your 1/6th figures and have decided that they will recreate the Cockpit after the success of their hugely popular “Cargo Hold” Truscale diorama.
As you can see from these CAD drawings, they have certainly put in a lot of work into their product.
Screen grabs from their Instagram feed show just how truly massive this diorama is.
Highly detailed and boasting LED lighting (up to 100 on the deluxe version), I have to say that I am incredibly impressed with what they have shown of it so far and have decided to take the plunge and pre-order, (despite not owning any 1/6 scale figures). 🙂
Those that have already pre-ordered are able to upgrade to the deluxe version for a discounted price. (I will do this as soon as I see how.)
Priced at approximately £1,000 (USD$1, 200), The kit will contain:
- The Classic Millennium Falcon Cockpit (suitable to display figurines from both the Original and Sequel movies)
- Two Captain seats and 2 Nav seats.
- Full bulkhead wall
- Cockpit Canopy.
- Light-up features.
- Back Wall.
- Hallway Ring.
- Opening and Closing Cockpit Door.
- Total weight of 15 kilos.
- Size is 47 x 47 x 74 centimetres.
Due to be released in June 30th 2020. Prepare for a pretty large shipping costs.
I suppose that I’d better get some 1/6th scale figures now.
If you are a 1/6th collector, you should check out the JazzInc website. They have many excellent dioramas for every budget. Even Luke’s Landspeeder. Their Youtube feed has a lot if nice videos of their dios too.
JazzInc are a father and son team who started out building these dioramas as a hobby project, working in their spare time to produce very limited edition collectors pieces.
I thought I’d update this entry as Jazzinc have now got their Delux version on their website, along with some photos of their prototype. Naturally, I have upgraded.
