General Diorama Description and Size
Each model in the series is built on a frame that is 20 LEGO studs in depth (about 6.3 in or 16 cm). The frame serves as a foundation for the display. The sets are sized for display on a bookshelf.
Two display plaques attach to the front of each frame. One plaque reads “LEGO Star Wars”. The other plaque shows a famous phrase from the movie scene portrayed in the particular diorama. The piece count of sets in the series ranges from 665 to 1000. Each design packs a lot of details into a small space.
Why are the dioramas recommended for age 18+?
LEGO recommends the series for builders ages 18+ for a couple of reasons. One reason is due to complexity of the build. Another reason is due to LEGO’s anticipation of who will be most interested in the set. Experienced builders under 18 may still enjoy constructing the dioramas.
The buildable LEGO Star Wars Helmet series also features an 18+ recommendation for similar reasons as the dioramas.
How many LEGO Star Wars Diorama set are there?
As of spring 2022, LEGO will have released a wave of 3 different Star Wars diorama sets. LEGO plans to release additional waves of dioramas in the future.
Diorama Price Range
The retail price of the sets range from $59.99 to $89.99. Note that the value of a LEGO set may change after the set is discontinued.

Release Date: 2022
Quotation: “One thing’s for sure, we’re all gonna be a lot thinner!” — Han Solo
Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama is easily the most complex diorama in the series. The fully-operational trash compactor features walls that actually expand and contract, just like in the memorable scene in Star Wars: A New Hope! LEGO designers were inspired by the mechanics of live theater in order to build a messy scene that reliably works without jamming.
Features several minfigures including: Chewbacca, Leia, Luke Skywalker (stormtrooper disguise), Han Solo (stormtrooper disguise), and the two droids R2-D2 and C-3PO. The two droids perch on a platform tucked away on the rear of the diorama, attempting to open the trash compactor door before their friends get squished.
