ESB30: Cast & Crew Collectibles

Posted By TFN on April 15, 2010

The celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back keeps on rolling over on StarWars.com with this latest report which has Pete Vilmur and Gus Lopez examining the collection of ESB themed collectibles that were offered to members of the film's cast and crew by Lucasfilm.

Some of the items detailed in the article include t-shirts, patches, and holiday cards.

Check out the intro below and then point your browser HERE for the rest of the article and corresponding pics.

"Back in 1979, with The Empire Strikes Back production in full swing at studios in England and at Industrial Light & Magic in California, most young fans would have traded half their summer break for a chance to visit the Dagobah set in London, witness the model AT-AT shoot on the ILM stages, or just bask in the glow of the Star Wars vibe at LFL headquarters in North Hollywood (their pre-Skywalker Ranch address). Heck, just being on the receiving end of a Lucasfilm holiday greeting card would have offered a small measure of bragging rights among the schoolyard crowd. But, unless you knew a friend of a friend of a Lucasfilm insider, you probably had to wait in anticipation like the rest of us to find out what happened to Luke, Leia, Han and Vader following the events of A New Hope.

Perhaps that's why objects coming from within the production itself, generally called "cast and crew" items by collectors, are so highly coveted -- they represent a direct link to the actual making of a Star Wars movie, be it the gifts given to crew members, the jacket patches worn on set, or just the simple pages of stationery passed between production departments."
