    That's it, Now I need to grow my hair and side burns like that, sa'weet

    In all seriousness though Art, thanks for the heads up, looking forward to seeing all the behind the scenes pics! Any chance there's a really good pic of the machined aluminum rocket collar?

    THX Again,

    Hey does that PP1 flamethrower look like the ROTJ flamethrower... just flipped in its side?

    very astute! I have thought for a long time that the RotJ laser housing was nothing more than a modified PP1/PP3 housing. Hoping this photo (the high res) will give us a bit more proof.

    Any infos about when this book will be available and where? I guess I need one of my fellow TDH brothers to buy one for me ... I guess it will take ages until it appears over here in germany ... or maybe not ... we´ll see. ;-)

    Holy cow. The Making of Star Wars is one of my favorite books. I have been wishing for an ESB version ever since. I am pre-ordering it right now!

    As mentioned it's crazy that there are still new photos. Who has the willpower to hold off on this, or did someone just happen across them lately? Good photos at that. Cool stuff.

    I can't wait for this book! I'm definately going to get the Hardcover this time around.

    My problem with the Making of Star Wars book was that even though all the information and interviews were
    directly from around the time before or during the original releases, the actual screen shots are from the Special Editions.

    I hate that they marketed the book as one thing but didn't hold true all the way through.

    Art! Is Las Vegas turning into a "Gwinnet?" I was told the same sort of development that took place in the 90's in Georgia - - - is taking place in the outskirts of Nevada. (Henderson Nevada)
