3. Lego XXL STAR DESTROYER
The company Sideshow produces Star Wars figures in a ¼ scale. They combine different materials for their figures: Usually, a statue is made of Polystone and fitted with fabric garments: This way of combining materials is called Mixed Media. The statue and its base are not conjoined – instead, the statue’s feet are equipped with small metal bolts which permit a flawless stand on the base. The Jedi and Sith are equipped with glowing lightsabers, which receive their power either through a mains adapter, which is provided by the manufacturer, or through batteries within the base – which also houses the switch for this feature. The regular versions of the statues usually consist of only two parts: the figure itself and the base, which need to be combined. The Exclusive Statues, however, are provided with different features like exchangeable heads, arms or weapons, or additional accessories, such as mouse droids or Jedi training remotes. These statues are exceptionally detailed and high-quality. Nowadays, Sideshow offers an incredible accuracy especially with their face sculpt: some of the statues are the spitting image of the respective actors.

16. Diorama GEONOSIS
The Petranaki-arena, also known as the Arena of Justice, on the planet Geonosis was a stage for public executions and deadly fights with wild beasts and gladiators. This arena housed several thousand gawping spectators. Because this structure was built on the planet’s surface, the Geonosians who generally lived underground were vulnerable and easy to attack – which added to the thrill of the tournament. This arena was also the site of the attempted execution of Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The failed execution led to the Battle of Geonosis, which marked the beginning of the Clone Wars.
Visit of Anthony Forrest
Originally, Anthony Forrest was playing a friend of Luke Skywalker, but the scene was cut in the end. Back at his hotel room on location, he received a call from George Lucas, who as desperatly looking for another extra for a different scene. As it turned out, Forrest was playing a stormtrooper who was influenced through the force by Obi-Wan Kenobi. Of course, we're referencing the famous "These aren't the droids you're looking for"-scene, in which the stormtrooper oafishly replies: "Move along, move along!" – even though he initially wanted to check Obi-Wan and Luke's droids. Of course, his scene has been eternalised in our Tatooine-diorama.
17. Double-Diorama CANTINA
Movie Prop: THE HAND OF PONDA BABA
Ponda Baba is the aqualish business partner of the human Dr. Evazan, and both them appear in the spin-off film Rogue One, too. Baba is the first character in Episode IV to lose a limb, and interestingly, his severed hand has got claws, whereas his other hand is peculiarly formed like a fin. The "blood" that was used during filming was made of raspberry yoghurt and red tempera colour. Actually, this scene shouldn't show any blood at all as lightsabers immediately cauterise wounds, but maybe, aqualish blood is inherently different to the blood of other humanoids.

20. Diorama TRAILER STORMTROOPER BEACH
We will probably never know if some of the scenes from the trailers of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” were only promo-shots or if they were deleted during the much discussed post-production process. All we know is: They are missing in the final movie. This is also true for the scene in which the stormtroopers patrol Scarif. We used this scene as a guide for this diorama in preparation of Rogue One’s release.
21. Diorama BATTLE OF JEDHA
The moon Jedha is a small, remote and frozen desert world, which was frequented as a place of pilgrimage for people who believed in the force. The moon’s landscape consisted mostly of deserts, small towns and spaceports. Later, the moon was taken over by the Empire, which mined the local kyber crystal deposits and hence stole the world’s resources. The moon was also used as a first target for the Death Star’s superlaser, simultaneously testing the weapon on a celestial body and destroying extremist Saw Gerrera’s base of operations, which had just caused another incident in Jedha-City: Members of Saw's partisans attacked a heavily guarded kyber crystal transport.

41 . Limited statuette RANCOR
In Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, the Rancor was created using a 61cm-long rod puppet made out of foam, which was operated by three people. The Rancor's animator described it as a "mixture of gorilla and potato" and its growling and rumbling was actually that of a dachshund.

42.1 Bust GAMORREAN GUARD - Jabba's palace guard
Due to their strength and their low intelligence, Gamorreans are widely used as mercenaries, guards, thugs or for heavy labour throughout the entire galaxy. If they like the job, they are willing to work for anyone who is able to pay a good wage – even condoning slavery. However, they don't regard contracts as binding as long as they are not sealed by blood in combat. Gamorrean chiefs usually send in new recruits to test their strength, and they expect the same from their employers. Female Gamorreans are regarded as attractive by several species and often find work as belly dancers.
