    So I went to see the Star Wars exhibition in London today at that big town hall place near the wheel that the GLC used to use. Despite it being populated by parents with noisy kids and folks who were just walking around taking photos without actually looking at stuff, I managed to get a look at everything and there was some awesome stuff to see -

    Star Wars -
    Death Star surface tiles
    Two sizes of Turbolaser Towers
    Reproduction Stormtrooper, Vader and C-3PO costumes
    A plasticy looking reproduction R2-D2
    Mouse Droid
    The protocal droid costume with the insect style head

    Empire -
    AT-AT
    Larger scale AT-AT leg
    Two sizes of Snowspeeder
    Giant asteroid worm
    Wampa head
    Star Destroyer officer costume, probably reproduction
    Boba Fett costume
    Han Solo carbonite slab
    Yoda, not sure if it was original or not but it looked good enougth

    ROTJ -
    Leia Bikini and Boushh disguise costumes
    Lando skiff guard disguise costume
    Imperial Royal Guard costume
    Weequay Skiff guard costume
    Skiff model with main character figures
    A couple of other palace alien masks whose race names elude me
    A shedload of small concept statues for Jabba and assorted palace aliens
    Detailed Star Destroyer bridge tower from space battle
    Ewok glider
    Tie Interceptor
    B-Wing
    A-Wing
    Death Star shield generator dish
    Full size speeder bike
    Model speeder bike with Luke Rider
    Ewok Costume
    Vader mask parts from his death scene

    There was also framed concept art and storyboards in some of the corridors as well as a load of prequel stuff that I wasent really interested in. I was disapointed that there were no full Star Destroyer models or a Falcon, but it was still worth going to see what was there and I recommended it for any UK mofos into Star Wars. The entry fee is an extortionate £18, but its not like your likely to see this stuff again in the near furture.

    Does the Leia Bikini sit on a circa 83' Carrie Fisher? If not, then the majority of the appeal is lost to me.

    I kid. Mostly. If I have the time I'm gonna go check it out.

    That sounds like the Magic of Myth exhibit that toured the US a few years ago. I went and saw it in Chicago and Minneapolis.

    Wait, how was some of that stuff in London AND LA at the same time for Celebration IV?

    I think the Flux Capacator in the other thread has something to do with it.

    Yeah, the Star Wars exhibit they had roaming the states a few years back sounds like it had some of this. Amazing stuff and really worth checking out, if you have the opportunity.
