    LOL..

    The Skiff and the Snowspeeder were the obvious ones. It's the other two I was unfamiliar with.

    Are those the same ones that were in front of Star Tours?

    I think the one next to the skiff is from "My Favorite Martian" with Christopher Lloyd.
    As for the skiff and snowspeeder, they are the ones that were out front of Star Tours but they removed them to make the stage area. I personally think they should be still out front and not thrown on the backlot.

    They've shortened that tour last I was there by the way, and you don't even go back to that area anymore.

    Are those replicas of the speeder and skiff, or are they the real deal?

    Those pics still tick me off - sitting outside getting trashed by weather when they could be on display somewhere...

    But it's nice to see they're still around.

    They're not originals, so don't worry about them wasting away. I saw them on the backlot in 1990, and they don't look to have changed very much since then.

    Yeah I go every year and this past summer you could really see the telling wear on the Flight of the Navigator. Worse yet is the condition of the Indy armored track vehicle. Sad.

    Are you certain they're not real Jedi-72? How can you tell? :)



    Nice photos, thanks for posting Force Commander.

    Thanks. There's more somewhere. There was a building we entered after this where there were more props (like a lifesize Alien). If I ever find them, I'll post them as well.

    It is (or was) part of the Disney-MGM Studios Backlot Tour attraction at Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida.

    Actually they are originals but have been "restored" by Disney over the years resulting in some inaccuracies. The speeder cannons, for one.

    They have been moved around several times, appearing in the "bone yard" on the backstage tour more than once.

    Fairly recently the backlot was altered to make room for a stunt show.
