    JediXXL on Rebel Legion posted this gallery. Most notable are pictures of X-wing pilot helmets: Porkins, Wedge, the Blast-shield helmet (modiifed for a female X-wing pilot who is seen in the briefing scene but whose closeups were cut)

    Screen captures taken from thee videos here: Star Wars Identits - Un premier aperu de l'exposition

    Interesting to see some props. The usual Stormtrooper Tour Suit, but surprise, one ANH stunt, one which looks to be a ESB MK2 and one ROTJ.

    It's the first time that I saw this kind of helmet exposed during an exhibition.

    Thats weird those helmets are set up like that cause you could almost get a look inside of them, which is a "no-no" for collectors.

    Ooohhh.... don't like that setup at all. I was actually planning to make a trip up, but seeing as you can't easily take shots of the back of the character... maybe not.

    Sure you can, I see Threepio's back just fine. Just have to be a little creative with your angles.

    Really wish this was making a stop in Toronto. Will definitely me making a trip for a weekend. I repeat, any local GTA nerds up for a weekend in Montreal??? :D

    If not maybe I'll bring my kids.

    Seriously?! As in the 8-ft Star Destroyer from ESB... this must be the first time in a LONG TIME that the 8-footer has appeared at a Star Wars exhibition?!
    Now if only it were in a 360-degree case, all of it's own... might just justify a Trans-Atlantic trip to see it! :eek
    ... and I s'pose it's about time that I ticked Canada off my global countries to-do list! Might be a good vacation destination over the Summer... :unsure

    Yep, that's deffo an ESB Mk. II / ROTJ Background helmet (although it appears to have flat eye-lenses instead of proper bubbled lenses...)
    To be honest, this isn't THAT big a draw for me...

    .... since I got one just like it, in my Prop Room! LOL :cool
    ah well... would be great to see a proper ANH Stormtrooper helmet at an exhibit, cos the folks at LFL are usually really lazy and just toss out a 1990's Tour Suit helmet :unsure

    Thanks for the info and pics everybody! If the 'overseas tour' doesn't include the U.K. , then CANADA, HERE I COME!!

    Cheers,
    John

    EV-9D9 too!
    I'd like to see some details from both droids. I'd really like to see the greeblies on top of EV-9D9's head but it looks like that would be quite a reach.

    now your just messing with me. I love both and would pay for good images of both for the details . They are really the only SW characters I want 1:1 in my collection ( oh and max rebo band) . Something about having them inhabiting one side of my workshop and it all be decked out like in SW..A man can dream.

    This is how it was displayed in the late 90's/early 2000's when Magic of Myth hit San Diego.

    MoM's premier exhibit at the Smithsonian had the model up against a wall (dip****s), but when MoM made it to SD, it was in a separate case, out in the middle of the floor.

    I wish they would bring out the Chewie suit from MoM again. That one had the ANH bandolier with the concho on it. The one at WSMI is the ESB/ROTJ one with no concho, and the one at SWiC is a really bad fake.

    I would kill to get a nice detailed close-up of that concho.

    Please get shots of 8d8 Death star droid and ev 9d9 pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!

    I think it was japan the last time these droid were on show (8d8 9d9) a long time ago.

    the more shots front back and side of these you can get the better droid heads i'll make :)

    i wonder if cz-3 is there?

    Jedi, I can tell you it's not there .. or it's really hidden well cause I didn't see it.

    Lone, I'll take tons of pics of 9D9 and 8D8 since I have both from Zorg at home .. And I'm 6'3" so it might just be possible to get thos pics! ;)

    I'll get my PP to you if you feel like they're worth it! :D

    Zorg, I was quite shocked at how close your sculpts were to the real deal. CZ-3 is not there, but I'll have tons of pics of these 2.



    Guys,
    I'll have all those pics posted saturday night or sunday morning!!! Probably about 1000 of them! :D

    Well, the VIP events was tuesday, but it really only opened last night .. so hopefully, I'll be able to help!

    Hang on for a few more hours .. and I'll spam you guys with more than you need! (Ok, this is actually impossible in the case of the RPF).

    Sure, I'll get plenty .. but there's (unfortunately) the no flash policy again .. I really regret not having my cam at the vip/media opening events cause at that one, they allowed flashes so that media could take better pics!!!

    That Vader was in quite a dark spot! But I'll bring my low light lens so it might be possible to get some good shots!

    I think it's a fake anyway! :D

    How do they enforce a 'No Flash Photography' rule anyways? Do they search you on the way in? I personally think 'No' to this, cause 99% of compact (non SLR) cameras have their flashes built-into the camera's body, regardless of whether you intend to use it or not (the Flash).


    ....or do they wait until they see a camera flash 'go off', and then escort you to the exit, opening all doors en-route with your head?! :lol

    I have mixed memories about going to the Star Wars Exhibition in Edinburgh, Scotland. Surrounded by dozens of my dream-props, from my favourite movies of all time.... but the place was so dimly lit, you could hardly see the end of your own nose! Bah!

    I don't recall whether Flash Photography was banned at the event or not...I think I remember using my camera's flash without incident...
    But I certainly do remember, viewing the hundreds of crappy photos which were next to useless, for the purposes of prop replication! D'Oh! :facepalm

    Cheers,
    John ....... Lookin' forward to seeing a deluge of photos in this thread! :love

    They wait until you use it and then tell you to stop. Keep using it and eventually you'll get thrown out I imagine.

    Myself I'll be bringing a tripod. :lol
