    Wow....that's amazing. Especially the photos in post #30. Awesome job!

    Somebody obviously has far too much spare time. ;)

    That's a great plan of the Cantina, but it's missing the Band ... unless they're in a back room getting ready. :)

    I didn't originally intend to do all of that, it just kept growing. I still didn't do all the things i would like to do, but i'm tired of working on it for now. I'll try and come back to it and finish some of the things that i left dangling.

    There will probably be more to come with how i came up with that map but that a long story for another time. It's interesting to look at the different floor plans that people have come up with over the years to accomidate that things that are seen in the movie... inside and outside the cantina.

    As for the band, after spending so much time identifying them, i just briefly spoke of their location. They are actually "Group J" and part of the Hollywood aliens.

    I've noticed that most (if not all) Cantina plans put the band in a booth / side room. That always struck me as a little silly - it would make more sense for a band to be in a place where they can be seen, but few of the plans have enough room for any sort of stage area.

    You have done a great job with the Cantina patrons, that's for sure ... when are you moving on to all the other characters around the rest of Mos Eisley? ;)

    I probably should have made a better distinction between the characters filmed in London and the ones film in Hollywood, in the list... maybe in an update.

    as for the rest of mos eisley, probably never. It might not be that difficult though, since its a lot of the same people and costumes. If i were to do another list or guide, i would probably like to do Jabba's palace.

    Something i learned doing this is that Peter Diamond is in the cantina. He's (Garouf Lafoe) standing at the bar when Ben and Luke go over to meet Han. That probably shouldn't be that surprising, but from what i understand, his part was a bit bigger in the original cut. After witnessing Obi-Wan cutting off arms, he runs out to tell the Sandtroopers. They cut the part where he leaves the cantina but when the film cuts to 3po and R2 outside, you see him standing there talking to the sandtroopers. I never put that together before.

    Awww... I was hoping you'd name the characters and actors for all the troopers and guards in the "welcome the Emperor" scenes on the second Death Star. ;)
    (Most of them are of course just a painted backdrop FX shot, but they'd still have names, or at least numbers.)


    I looked up that "talk to the Stormtroopers" scene in the novelisation, but it just say an "untidy human".

    Great work! I have been planning some custom action figures and the work you've done here is invaluable. I stumbled across this behind the scenes image recently; it's the best image I've ever seen of (what appears to be) Gotal #2 a.k.a. High Tundra.

    Fantastic! Thanks for sharing these; looking forward to your new and improved guide. Here is another image I happened upon recently; pretty good image of the 'unidentified man with pig-nose' or 'local farmer' just behind Chewbacca. [​IMG]
