June 9th, 2012 by bash Comments

A range of production notes from the original Star Wars movie, are being put up for sale.

The items, from discussions between key figures on January 13, January 26 and February 13, reveal the lengths that the makers of the movie, including George Lucas, went to to produce the sci-fi epic.

Some notes illustrate the work carried out in creating life-size X-Wing and Y-Wing fighter ships at a cost of £27,000 each while another records set lists 227 to 250 including interiors of the Death Star and a garbage room on Alderaan.

The collection, including the X-Wing delivery invoice, will go up for auction to a global fan base at the Greenwich Auction Partnership this weekend.

They are set to go under the hammer for a starting price of £2,000.

Thanks to the Daily Mail for the heads up.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
