I have to say a galactic big THANK YOU! for all this fantasic awesome feedback! THAT I've never thought... Thank you Eurobricks, this is a great confirmation for me and my project.
You'll never guess how many Bothans I had to kill, to get every information confidential till the end of my work ;-)
As a little update, I want to show you a short shot of the diorama, attached with the acrylic cover, and placed in my working (Lego) room:
And now the secret (what's no real secrect) about the glowing light saber. I have pictures from the first version of my diorama, but the technic behind getting glowing swords is the same as actually used ;-)
I used white very small SMD LED's from our german shop "Conrad Electronics". i think you should get SMD LEDs worldwide...
In the next step I drilled 1mm holes into the light saber handles:
The SMD LED fits to the original LEGO intake for the transparent part of the saber:
At last I fixed both parts with one drop of cyanoacrylate adhesive, but it also works fine without this step, if you don't shake the whole thing too much.
Voila! Give it power, a 470Ohm resistor and 12V, and it glows fine!

We have 88cm from the ground to the bottom of the base plate, and over all with cover it as a height of 1,29m.
The socket is made of table legs, acrylic plates and a selfmade plotted StarWars sticker.

The details, the sheer scale, everything is perfect.
If my fate is to be destroyed................ I must simply laugh!!!

Shock, taking the details in, and soaking in what is the one of the best SW MOCs I have ever seen.
This is incredible. All of the detail... The scenes, attention to the specifics. Amazing!! I am not sure words could fully justify this MOC. Amazing work.
I must say my favorite part is the skeleton though that is an awesome touch. Wonderful work!

The MOC is astonishing as it is but the whole room - WWOOWW! It blew me away!
There are some really nice UCS models out there, and I see one of my favourites the Y-wing on one of the pics.
Brilliant work with the MOC!

Yes, cabinets and shelves are "Expedit" and "detolf" from IKEA . This Expedit stuff is perfect for displaying LEGO, and it is also possible to reconstruct the shelves.

I use the IKEA units too for my sons bedroom. Great for Lego displays.

Have to say, I'm certainly jealous, I don't think I could ever build something of that size and detail,
No but seriously fantastic work,
