Hasbro sponsored a building event for a very cool looking Cloud City diorama at this past weekend's Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, CA. This is not the first time this type of event has taken place as other Celebrations have brought forth some amazing dioramas. This is the first time Cloud City has been featured. As someone who has attended many Celebrations this has to be seen in person to understand the full scope of the project. Thankfully Hasbro has released a video showcasing the build. See their video below of how the construction of the piece developed over the course of the weekend. This is one I do regret missing and I hope you all enjoy this. Oh and the best part of this is the smiles from the children. That alone warms my fanboy heart.
Okay I must admit something......I squealed like a little girl when I saw this. Rex is back and it looks like Ahsoka Tano could fight Darth Vader. The Clone Wars tie in is so strong and I love it! Go ahead and check out Season 2 of Rebels and yes it's okay to squeal in joy!
