When it comes to iconic scenes in the Star Wars movies, few sequences come close to the snowy Battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back.

Leave it to this Star Wars fan named Barry to recreate the legendary Battle of Hoth as an impressively detailed diorama in his living room. This guy is such a big Star Wars fan that he dedicated an entire room of his house to one film sequence. From the flying A-Wing ships tripping up Empire's AT-AT walking tanks, to the exposions littering the battlefield to Darth Vader doing his evil doings on a hapless Rebel pilot, it's all a very impressive level of geeky fandom.

I would imagine that Barry is now working on a recreation of a Lord of the Rings battle in another room of his house. Stats for Sci-Fi Battle Dioramas Trending: Older & Mild
