In particular I would like some of that concept art, the chunk of the Tantive IV
wall, and all the stuff from Back to the Future
An Imperial officer's black uniform,
Prototype Threepio eyes,
A piece of Greedo's antenna,
A tauntaun head,
An original prop Blues Brothers poster,
Indiana Jones and Terminator jackets (!),
And they even have the head scars from unmasked Anakin in ROTJ!
I wish I had a larger image of 224, the "Lucasfilm Moving" card by McQuarrie.
The Yoda fragments are cool and all, but they're so degraded and grotesque I don't think I'd really want them around, you know?
179. ON-SET PASSPORT FOR THE SET
OF STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES
BACK. (TCF, 1980) These passports
were handed out to VIPs visiting the
sets of The Empire Strikes Back at Elstree
Studios in England. Only approx. 200
of these numbered passports were given
out, and the first few examples were
retained. No.1 was given to Gary Kurtz,
No.3 was given to George Lucas and
the rest of the first 10 were kept in Gary
Kurtz’s archive. The passport features
faux “stamps” for Mos Eisley, Tatooine, Corellia, Utupau, and other
locales in the Star Wars universe. Method of travel is listed as “X-Wing
Fighter”. Comes directly from the Kurtz / Joiner Archive, and accompanied
with a letter of authenticity from the Archive signed by Jason
Joiner. $500 – $600
Utapau was a name from the original drafts of ANH I believe, so the question is: was the name reused and stuck into this passport simply because it sounded good,
Or because at the time George was planning to use the name in ESB or Episode VI,
Or simply a modern-day screwup when they put together the PDF? Some of the details in the rest of the catalog are questionable, such as the "Rodian hand from ESB"--there were no Rodians in ESB. So this might be the explanation.
