Most of us probably played with 'Star Wars' action figures as kids, making them fight or sitting them in the awesome toy Millennium Falcon.


One fan however has taken it to another level, building a 140-sqaure foot recreation of the Battle of Hoth in his living room.

Barry, known as Zipidi Doodah on his Facebook page, built the set using toys and replicas of Rebel soldiers, Imperial troopers, snow speeders and the famous AT-AT walkers.


The impressive sight is completed with a number of great looking explosions and a miniature version of the famous image of one AT-AT's falling over following a well-placed grenade thrown by Luke Skywalker.


Darth Vader also makes a cameo, choking a Rebel pilot.

Barry's two sons will surely have been impressed with their father's project, though we're not too sure what his wife thinks of the snowy ground assault taking place in her front room.


From the opening hour of 1980's 'The Empire Strikes Back', the Battle of Hoth is perhaps the most iconic large-scale battle sequence in the 'Star Wars' saga.


Take a look at more impressive photos of the set below.
