This weekend we went to the Star Wars exhibit in the California Science Center, in Los Angeles:
Oh man, I couldn't wait for this exhibit. The stuff they exhibited really was a star wars geek's dream come true!
But first, while we were waiting in line, who were we standing behind? Why it's Academy Award Winner, Jodie Foster! I heard her saying "oh, we're big Star Wars fans".
Even better, we ran into a galaxy full of Micechatters! I ran into Grumpy4, and SusieP, at the entrance, and Dlan we saw near the gift shop, and I heard rumors that Pixiechick was there also.
The orbs when going up the ramp into the third floor, where the exhibits were:
Someone dressed up like General Grevious:
The actual landspeeder model used in the first movie (1977):
The model for Sebulba:
A Tie Fighter Model:
An imperial destroyer model:
One of a few Millennium Falcoln Models:
Queen Amidala's starship:
Another, smaller, Millennium Falcon Model:
Training orb from A New Hope (Episode IV, 1977):
The Wookie City of Kashyyk (I hope I got that right):
Tusken Raiders/ Sand People:
The Yoda Puppet from The Empire Strikes Back (1980):
The (Abominable) Wampa from The Empire Strikes Back (1980):
The friggin' probe that tortured Princess Leia in Star Wars (1977)!!!
The Clay/Plasticine Model for General Grievous:
Medical Droid from the Empire Strikes Back:
C-3PO without his golden skin:
Just a fantastic exhibit, although the IMAX movie they put together was a little dated, talking about space and satellite launches that were about to happen in 1994. Amazing to see so much star wars memorabilia in one place, however - my geek meter went off the charts!
