It's kind of dead around these parts, lately, so...
Let's play a game!
If, somehow or another, you were able to examine any of the remaining screen-used suits at the Lucasfilm Archives, what things would you most like to see?
1.) I would like to check the boots for manufacturer markings. I would hope against hope that they had -gasp- tags!
2.) Same goes for the flight suit. Did it start out as an off-the-shelf jumpsuit? I recall seeing something about it being manufactured by a company that provided soft items for many movie productions, but it would still be neat to see if there is any identifying tagging anywhere.
3.) Basically, the underside of all of the hard parts! Most especially, the armor attachment methods. It's been established that the nut/bolt method was used, but I'd still like to actually see it firsthand.
4.) I would like to check all pockets for loose spacebucks! Seriously, what's in the pockets? I use old socks (clean) to fill mine out, but I recall that at least one hip pouch was used for a battery. I'd really like to know what else was in the rest of them, if anything.
Well, there's a few to start with. Please give this little game a shot. It might be important someday!
