What the hell is that background image? Looks like a very well equipped
gorilla having a *really* fun time to himself...

Oh, spent this afternoon at the Art of StarWars exhibition, complete
1) PodRacer miniatures and full-size from actual production
2) Actual production models of Millennium Falcon, Star Destroyers
(seriously detailed), Naboo Royal craft (very shiny), Landspeeders,
Endor speedbike
3) Production costumes from Amidala (lots) Darth Maul, C3P0, Vader (in a
darkened room with breathing), Solo, Luke as Jedi, Chewi, Ewoks, Bobba
4) Concept drawings from all 5 (yes 5) released movies
5) Actual set model used for the long shots of the stand with Jabba's
PodRacing box (it's about 2 metres high - the people are (literal)
6) Matte artwork used from Empire (Hoth external and a hanger with the
Falcon in)

...and craploads of other stuff. Even the lift was themed (red lighting
and Vader breathing)

A fun afternoon. For those in Scotland (Shug, William), it's at the
Edinburgh City Arts Centre. Six quid - a bit pricey - but just about
worth it.
