My blog page below contains more detailed photos and explanations so please read ahead!
It’s massive. There is nothing better to describe this behemoth. It’s a roughly 30-inch depth, 19-inch width, and 20 inches in height. Weight? It’s too heavy lol.
Sadly, due to the packaging method, the soundboard and the LED is damaged so I get no sound plus the LED keeps failing.
The soundboard and the LED control are inside the base and when this item was packed, all the accessories including the chairs and such was placed inside the base as well. The problem was the soundboard and LED control units were unprotected. Even the chairs were broken so you can imagine how fragile things could be.
If you are purchasing the falcon, I suggest you to ask Joost to put some padding to avoid such damages. I already did contact Joost and waiting for his reply on how my Falcon can be dealt with. I mean, my falcon LED will definitely die off sometime soon (the light is flickering). He might be able to send me a soundboard with LED but I am no mechanic. I have no idea how this thing works so it would need a full repair or exchange but shipping this from Canada will be insanely expensive that I cannot pay (yes, Canada Post is one of the most expensive service in the world). The pricing to ship this will cost me half of the diorama.
Regardless, I was able to take photos and videos of the Falcon when the LED was on so those will be uploaded soon! Sad that I have no way to play the sounds.
Inspired by Hot Toy’s prototype Millennium Falcon which will never be released, Joost was kind to make the backside for this diorama too. It’s a wonderful addition. I mean, it’s two in one! Oh, and you can remove the roof for the backside of the Falcon if you wish!
You can have so much fun with this! Again, I will be having a separate post for the photograph session since this is simply an unboxing post. But look at those details! beautiful. I am throwing a sneak peek photo of the photograph review post 🙂
Details everywhere! I am sure if you do the lighting well, some people may even think it is an actual prop!
The inside is a masterpiece but the exterior is also a beauty. You can recreate other scenes from the film. So technically, this is a three in one diorama for sure. The play factor is limited to your imagination.
By the way, the Leia figure you see here is the Hot Toys 1/6 scale and C-3PO is from Bandai’s Tamashii Nation Chogokin Perfect Model. Absolutely THE best C-3PO you can find in this scale. What makes dioramas great is that it adds so much to the world-building. It makes the photograph hundreds of time convincing.
The LED promised to be dead sometime in the near future alone was depressing to me but I must say, having a crack in the front window frames was more devastating since I can still display the diorama without the lights but a visible major crack is something that cannot be ignored. Chewie’s going to scream for sure.
Luke looks worried lol.
This Falcon has several cracks due to it not been able to support its own weight. Some can be hidden easily. Some I can repair. The headrest and the armrest of the chairs are broken off too. I can easily fix those. But the repaired armrest will have a visible crack mark even I glued it on so that’s a bummer. But there is nothing I can do with the two major cracks on the front window frame. Hope Joost can come up with something that can resolve this matter so I won’t be stuck with a beaten up diorama. And I do wonder what would have been it like to have the diorama play with all those sounds.
By the way, all four chairs have magnets on its base to stick to the cockpit floor. One of the magnets was installed upside down so it keeps popping up back lol. When I have a figure on, it’s not visible but unless otherwise, one side is slightly higher than the other due to this. I managed to use blue tac to make it stick on so for anyone who has the same problem, here is the solution.
And many figure collectors are very critical when it comes to keeping their collection as mint as they can be. But when you become old, I mean, I am in my 40s, I tend to not worry so much anymore. If I can fix it, I am fine with that.
So overall, what do I think about this diorama?
Kickass of course! This will definitely be your centerpiece. It’s something Hot Toys failed to deliver. That is why we have someone like Joost making our dream come true. I was unlucky when it comes to all the defects I got with this one but I am sure you will have no problem if you order yours now since Joost is aware of the issue already. Well, I mean if he still has any more Falcon to sell that is. Joost makes all his diorama with his father and son (yes, it’s like Star Wars). It’s not like his diorama can be mass-produced. It’s always in limited quantities and most are exclusive to one-time production. So if you have the chance to pick this beautiful Millennium Falcon up, I suggest you do that right away.

I do have a video coming to my Youtube channel soon where you can see a full live unboxing and photo review. I have a simple “how to fix” on the broken chair in the video too. The next post will photo review of this Falcon with other 1/6 scale figures. It’s where the fun begins.
And once I receive answers from Joost, I will update you all on another post so please stay tuned!
This concludes my unboxing of 1/6 scale Millennium Falcon from Jazzinc Diorama.
