Shane Goes To Star Wars Identities

Huh, Albertan Snow

Huh, Albertan Snow

As mentioned in the Star Trek exhibition post downriver, my brother from another mother and hemisphere Shane went and visited Star Wars Identities exhibition at the Telus World of Science in Edmonton. Shane gave me permission to feature photos from his expedition into the world of Star Wars miniatures, maquettes, concept art and costumes.

Which gives me a reason to post more Star Wars photos on this blog for the lulz.

See this grin on Shane? I will match and exceed that if I ever visit an exhibition like this one. In the background, Boba Fett is unsettled by his number one fan.

The entire set up sounds fantastic. As a visitor, you are able to use the interactive displays to choose which path you take as you traverse the entire exhibition. What you choose will create an original character attributed to you as you reach the end of the exhibition.

If only they’d allow Shane to take Carbonite Han home with him; in which case it’ll end up as the surface of his coffee table. We could run games on it and dice would be thrown at around Han’s crotch, where the surface is smooth.

This RA-7 protocol droid might or might not have been stationed aboard the first Death Star.

Oh noes! Dud Bolt, Mars Guo and Sebulba met their end at the hands of which crazed taxidermist?

Sila flew throughout the Enteague Sector in a prototype of one of these, or maybe an R-22 Spearhead. But we never did use that ship much.

Give me Liberty or give me Home One

Mon Calamari Cruiser cruising

You can identify a Mon Calamari MC-80 Liberty-type star cruiser by its winged spaceframe.

So that's what deploy the fleet really means

Built by Kuat Drive Yards

The garbage jettison bay is open. This Imperator-class star destroyer is about to take a shit. The TIE Advanced and Lambda-class shuttle flanking it are done for.

She got it where it counts, kid

Some old modified YT-1300 stock light freighter

The most famous Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1300 light freighter that flew the spacelanes: The Millennium Falcon. Now, this is a handsomely-crafted piece of model miniature. It’s even lovelier than a wave of babies.

It's the wrist-link with the Bad Motherfucker on it

General Lando

This bald mannequin is giving me ideas that Lando Calrissian will turn out to be the unaltered, naturally grown but non-Force sensitive clone of Mace Windu.

X-Wing pilot costume

Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing pilot’s coveralls and life support module look very nifty. If I could wear that to work every day I would.

Why don't they sell these as real motorcycle helmets I'll never know

Fighter pilot helmets

More X-Wing pilot helmets, including Wedge’s and Biggs’, probably the cause of many a 70s-style helmet hairs.

Darth Vader. Only you could be so italics

Sith Welin

Before Shane leaves, he bows to his master. Hint: It’s not Joss Whedon.

  1. coolness! 🙂 can i just say i think we didn’t use the A-wing as much when we gamed because it was a one-(wo)man machine and most of the time we needed a vehicle that could transport multiple people. yes?

  2. oh wow! awesome! i guess this will do since the white house vetoed the death star petition? 🙂
    btw, what was Shane’s character at the end again?
