Star Wars Exhibit

Went to the OMSI Star Wars Exhibit today with erboo. Lots of great scaled and full size props from the movies. Of course I took pictures mostly of the Vader suit and helmet. Amazing how much detail they put into the inner surface of the helmet which wasn't ever seen. And as erboo said, even though you know Vader is big, it's something else to be looking up at the real thing (the suit anyways).After the ride in the Millennium Falcon we both decided the cockpit needs better visiblility; those window struts really get in the way.










Had a great time! On the way home I picked up the Vader snowglobe (he's building the Death Star) at Target, making it a perfect Vader day.

Jealous. I'm just jealous.

Seeing the suit must be fun, but I must admit to liking the land speeder. I just like how beat up it is. I always liked that Lucas created a futuristic world that actually looked lived in.

Yeah, from the traffic in Coruscant to Han thumping the bulkhead of the Falcon to get the lights to work, it was a future with real world problems that we could identify with. I love all the small details of life- I found reading the Holonet News very enjoyable.

jedinemo, you saved the best revelation for me to tell! Thank you! :>

Re the mini landspeeder (used for distance shots in ANH)... Luke and Obi-Wan are little dolls (literally) and Luke is not....wait for it......IS NOT WEARING PANTS!!! Yes, he is bare-ass naked. Right there in the front seat with Obi-Wan. Let us hope (she said piously) that Obi-Wan doesn't try to shift. (Yes, the speeder has a steering wheel and stick shift.)

And little doll Obi-Wan not only isn't wearing pants, he doesn't even have legs! Hmm... I wonder if that's where Lucas got the idea to have him chop off Anakin's stalks...?

Ahhh! The two of you went to see naked Luke and didn't take me? I'm hurt. Seriously, the entire exhibit sounds like a tremendous amount of fun.
