This is it...Legends Action Figures, 7104 St-Hubert Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The center window will be the new home for my Death Star II Docking Bay. I took this picture the night before we were to start the Display Assembly. I hope the Diorama makes it here in one piece :P

After 2 hours, Marc, Frank and I managed to get all of the Docking Bay into the truck. You can see the Sarlaac Diorama on the left and my Han Solo Carbonite leaning against the right. I sat in the back of the truck to make sure nothing was to tip over. If anyone has been to Montreal, you know just what GREAT condition our roads are - LOL. A pot hole at every 6 inches...I thought I was going to faint at the violent shaking my poor Death Star was going through. I kept my fingers crossed that it would not break.

Phew...made it to Legends in one piece. After unloading the truck and having some supper, The Diorama Assembly began. To make sure that NO troopers would tip over in the window display, I applied a drop of Hot Glue to EVERY figures feet before inserting them into the pegs. VERY time consuming but well worth the effort. Once the mirror is up, it would be difficult to get back in and re-arrange the sleeping troopers. Hee hee.

Here we see section 2...another 32 figures have been glued in place. The cool thing about Hot Glue is that it does NOT harm the figures. Once hardened, you can peel it off the figures feet and it's just like new.

Now section 3 took a little longer. With over 90 figures, I spent almost 2 hours putting them in place. It's always fun to see lined up Imperials isn't it? :D

The final section is ready. 44 figures are lined up here.

Making sure everything alligns properly before placing into the window. The picture doesn't give justice to the Diorama's size. Even without the Mirror, Jose and Steve were VERY impressed. it was the first time they were seeing it outside of the Previews Section.
