Frank D'Iorio, the master diorama builder behind the fantastic fan-built dioramas at Celebrations II, III, and IV is returning for yet another Celebration, this time to lead fans in building Echo Base, the Rebel encampment on the ice planet Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back.
Especially for Star Wars Celebration V, slated for August 12-15 in the Orange County Convention Center, D'Iorio will set the stage in the Diorama building area, and then adults and kids alike can come and build a portion of the scene -- free of charge -- which takes shape as one huge diorama over the course of the weekend. Attendees who have been to D'Iorio's building areas agree that one of the best parts of building a diorama at Celebration is getting to take their portion home on the last day of the show.
"It's all very exciting to be returning to another Celebration, especially for the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back," says D'Iorio.
