Nice! And already digitized...

I think this is the same auction house that had the original 2001 lunar shuttle model a couple months back?

Recorded by George Lucas to overdub some of the classic action scenes in the film including Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Hans Solo), George Lucas and many more.

What? This guy again?

Great news, anyway. It would be an interesting (and funny!) source.

Something like that was for sale on eBay about 10 or 15 years ago. The original tape was encased in a plexiglass display box/case, and there was a mp3-type digital recorder/player attached with the contents of the tape, so you could press 'play' and hear what was on the tape without having to touch the original.

Nobody bought it.

My favorite part is the Rat Face voice session. I don't recall too many cantina creatures with lines. Would've been interesting.

Would it have sold for a minimum of $500 or was there a higher price that needed to met? I think the estimates are a little inflated thanks to TFA fever.

Hope it gets relisted eventually.
