MAC'S EMPIRE STRIKES BACK DISPLAY
A couple years ago I bought some IKEA LED light strips that come with a wired controller that allows the bulbs to shine different colours. Ideally I would like to have these in every bookcase in my Star Wars room but I haven't committed to that yet. This past weekend was spent moving a few displays around so I could see what lighting effects I could get for them. I wanted to move my Empire Strikes Back display to where these lights are installed so I could take advantage of the red hue with my Power of the Jedi Carbon Freeze Chamber play set. I also added a floor grating that I found at Diorama Workshop: an amazing source for diorama builders. Inside the chamber that Han Solo can be dropped into, I wrapped a set of dollar store LEDs around a toilet paper tube and sat the Solo figure on top of it. The appearance is of Han being lowered into the chamber. I also used some clear drawer organizers to give some height to the bounty hunters and to allow for a string of LED lights to highlight those characters from beneath.
