We took the set to a convention in El Paso Texas last week and we were able to get some decent photos.

While the lighting is never "right" in a convention it still comes close to hitting the mark.

Here is a comparison of the set against the original, from the movie:




Mostly, the lighting is off...well.. and having sand on the floor would be cool Wink There are a couple of weathering areas that are off and I miscalculated the width of the brass metal bands on the back wall which threw my spacing off for those vertical supports... but all in all I think we came pretty close, down to the tables and drink glasses, cracks in the walls etc. We just need to make the Tauntaun and Jerba heads to hang on either side.


Here is a straight on shot and with R2 and a Jawa to help add to the scale. Here you can see the mirrors that are on top. We have spot lights on top that reflect off the mirrors, through the louvered skylights and cast shadows onto the wall and floor. Again, they don't show as well with the bright convention lighting.




Here is a washed out photo, to show some of the details that usually hide in the shadows:




And some fun shots:














FWIW, Kathy and I primarily travel with these displays to add to the atmosphere at conventions, allow the patrons to have something awesome to take photos with, and also to show off our talents in the hopes of making contacts and finding work in the industry. Sometimes we set these displays up to allow the clubs to use them in raising money for various charities. It costs a lot of money and takes up valuable time and wear and tear on our vehicle to do this. We are in no way setting up these displays with the intent of being a store. I know there are some members of the clubs who are confused by this and might be uncomfortable, hopefully due to misunderstanding Smile
