Something like this might work. Not exactly 1/72, but I think close enough based on some other other Action Fleet stuff I have

For other Mos Eisley themed figures, the old MPC/AMT Star Wars Cantina set is exactly 1/72 scale.

The Micromachines figure sets like the Jawas are close enough to 1/72, that they would not look out of place, especially if used in the background.

The Jabba Throne Room is a bit oversized at around 1/63

I have the old Jabba Throne room kit... I may need to see if I can find the Cantina one on ebay… I'll look for that guy you posted above, too. And the Jawas… I'm going to need many, many figures... Big plans for this one for sure.

Ah, cool!

You just need a 1:72 sandcrawler, then! :)
Yes indeed! I know a guy who was working on a 3d printed one... May need to get in contact with him.
You could always build a "flat". Model Railroads for example might just build a background building as only a very shallow front since no one ever sees the other side and it saves space. Since yours in the background there it might be possible, Unless the dio will be viewed in 360°

It will be able to be viewed in 360 degrees.

I'm considering a Docking Bay 94 diorama with an ANH ship, or an Echo Base diorama with an ESB ship. I do like the fun busyness of the Echo Base set. But I do also like the clean purity of the low-budget Docking Bay 94 set, even if it requires some goofing around since the original set was only half a set with half a ship. :) Plus it was the first time we got to see the ship, which is cool.

That's basically why I cranked out all the various detail parts. Take a look and let me know if there's anything missing you'd like to see added. :) Note that sizing is a real problem for this stuff. It's kind of sized relative to the scale of the cockpit interior. But, because of the perennial scaling problems with the undersized Falcon set, that means that the detail parts are smaller than the would be to look exactly like they looked on screen. I could resize them up, but that of course causes its own problems...

Did some minor detail work as I wait for more foam board to show up and my new kit. I need to pre-drill holes for lighting and wiring, too. But I need some longer drill bits.

I'll look closely and let you know for sure. My Diorama will be very busy too lol

The Micromachine Jawas are a great size for 1/72.

With some careful cutting, you can convert the Bandai sitting C-3PO figure from the PG falcon into a standing version

I may do that for the Luke, Obi-wan, Han, and Chewie figures... Although I had some ideas for the sitting versions. Some kind of Easter Egg in the scene. Here's some of the figures I'm considering to use. The Jabba might be too big though:
