During the release of the 2nd season of The Mandalorian in 2020 YouTuber Boylei Hobby Time made a set of dioramas, each one based on a scene from each of the eight episodes of the series. He made each of these during the week following each episode that they were based on.
I’ve also posted several of his OT based dioramas on the The random YouTube/Vimeo finds for the Original Trilogy thread.
Krayt Dragon Diorama | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZsWZuh79CQ - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (6 mins long).
“Decided to test out an app for my iPad called forger and build myself a Krayt Dragon as seen in chapter nine of the Mandalorian. I am not crazy about how the project as a whole ended up looking, but it was a fun build and I am excited to be learning new techniques that will help expand my ability to create better content.”
Giant Spider | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yze6a6U8bkQ- from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (7 mins long).
“Episode 2 of the Mandalorian gave us a fun cameo of one of Ralph Mcquarrie’s early concepts for Empire Strikes Back. It was fun to see the legendary arachnid come to life along with way too many of its creepy crawly kiddos. I decided the monster was worthy of its own snow globe inspired diorama.”
Crane Walker | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 3
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-WZLA435FY&t - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (10 mins long).
“Episode 3 of the Mandalorian was great! There were a number of scenes that would look fun depicted in diorama form, but I decided to go with what I’m gonna call the AT-CRANE T pulling the Razor Crest out of the water.”
Baby Yoda | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb795ER6IKk - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (8 mins long).
“Episode 4 of the Mandalorian was another winner! There were some great action sequences that I may attempt later on, but for this one I decided to build a book nook with Baby Yoda doing his best to help fix the hyperdrive.”
Ahsoka vs. The Magistrate | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 5
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWm7p7qVAXg - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (10 mins long).
“For Episode 5 of the Mandalorian, I decided to build a diorama of Ahsoka and the Magistrate’s encounter at the garden courtyard. I loved the composition of this scene, and this episode in general. I had fun recreating this moment.”
Boba Fett Diorama | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 6
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muXUPn59zFc - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (11 mins long).
“For Episode 6, we got the Boba Fett action sequence that we’ve been waiting 40 years for. So stoked and super inspired to create this one! Here is this weeks project inspired by the Mandalorian. Enjoy!”
Refinery Diorama | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 7
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebFFq66DzEo - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (7 mins long).
“For Episode 7, I built the refinery that Mando and Migs break into to find the location of Moff Gideon.”
Mandalorian vs. Dark Trooper | Mandalorian S2 - Episode 8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zkws8Xi9HTk - from the Boylei Hobby Time YouTube channel (9 mins long).
“For the finale of this Mandalorian season 2 project, I decided it was only fitting to finally feature The Mandalorian himself, Din Djarin.
I recreated him defeating the dark trooper in the hallway of Moff Gideon’s light Cruiser.
This has been a super fun project and I can’t wait for the next season!”
