I sometimes forget how physically and mentally grueling ESB must have been for Mark. Buried in snow, repeatedly slapped by a Wampa hand on a pole, dunked in a giant aquarium, weeks if not months on a mudhole of a set with only Artoo, a rubber Muppet and various live reptiles to act opposite of. Not to mention the Vader duel!

On top of all that, he and his wife were expecting their first child during production. That’s stressful enough without being the lead in a Star Wars film to worry about.

Plus the weight training which apparently he hated! Mark was in killer shape on Empire. I saw an interview somewhere where he said he’d assumed he’d have to up the ante for Jedi - get even bigger and wear an eyepatch! I’d have been all for it (it’s a Conan thing)…

The vintage (and not so vintage) OOT T-shirt thread
Time

I haven’t bought an SW shirt in a long, long time, but this one caught my eye as I’ve been slowly rebuilding my wardrobe.

It’s retro and low key. Even has the crawl on the back. Yes, it has A New Hope.

I’d love to find a modern replica of the 1976 cast and crew t-shirt.

Might want to get a Blue Harvest shirt as well. It’s a deep cut that will go over the heads of most people. But I’m all about the deep cuts these days.


Easy enough to find on Ebay, although I doubt they’re licensed.
I think the original fan club may have sold some back in the early '80’s though.

Did Lucasfilm ever copyright the title?

Whilst googling, I found an article that jogged my memory about the other custom shirts worn by the film crews and ILM crew over the years. There were more than I knew about.

This has to be my favorite one, for obvious reasons. 😉

What are your favorite vintage OOT T-shirts, or not so vintage?

Maybe an unused take of the race to the Falcon or the pad where Boba was taking off from? Meant to be a plate for a matte shot. Somewhere I’ve seen a still of a blue screen shot of Lando leading Han and the gang that was supposed to composited with a Cloud City exterior that never made it into the film.

Revenge of The Sith four hour cut petition???
Time

This has to be a gag? Not the Star Wars movie I thought someone would start a petition for getting a longer cut of.

Has there ever been even a whiff of such a version existing?

What’s sad is I find out about this from a post in a Stanley Kubrick FB group.

<strong>Return Of The Jedi</strong> - 'Behind The Scenes / Making Of' <strong>images</strong> thread

Fascinating! And yet Obi Wan seems to be looking at Anakin. So did they re-purpose one of Sir Alec’s costumes or whip something up for Shaw in a hurry?

Since it’s obvious in one photo that Shaw was never as tall as Prowse, I presume the switch occurs after Vader slumps to the ground on the shuttle ramp.

On a side note, I wonder if the book that only came out bundled with the 12 inch Shaw Anakin figure might have some rare pix in it? Anybody have a copy?
