Birmingham, Alabama-based Star Wars superfan Barry Riddle had something far better in mind for the spare 140-square-foot space in his living room than simply adding more furniture. Barry painstakingly created this epic diorama of the Battle of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back.

Star Wars Planets: Hoth

Hoth was the sixth planet of the remote Hoth system. A desolate world covered with ice and snow, located in the Anoat sector, a rarely-traveled portion of the Outer Rim Territories, it became famous as the one-time location of the Alliance to Restore the Republic’s Echo Base during the Galactic Civil War. The base was discovered by the Empire in 3 ABY, precipitating the Battle of Hoth, a major engagement during which the Rebels suffered heavy casualties and lost Echo Base. [Wikia]
