Star Wars Exhibit - Part IV

This entry is for robots -
It was very fun to be able to examine these up-close. Lots of detailing (some of which is only decorative, it couldn't possibly serve a function!). We did have a time trying to figure out how the actor was able to get inside of this carapace. 

(and here's the 'early version' of C3PO - all his fabulous innards!)

Handsome devil, isn't he?

And here's a close-up of the little droid critter that he's standing next to. It always reminded me of a combination of a spider (all those black eyes!) and a jelly-fish.

And here is the 'interrogation droid' thingy from the first movie. Gave my 13 year old self nightmares upon my first viewings! Someone obviously raided a medical bay to adorn it with (forceps? syringes?)

And, they had life-size battle-droids behind glass! Wondered if they'd really roll up into a ball like in the movie? Wouldn't this be a fun job? Kit-bashing and building this kind of thing?

Have you *seen* Anthony Daniels? Dude is seriously scrawny. Even so, he said the suit was very uncomfortable.
