3. Lego XXL STAR DESTROYER

400.000 pieces and 2 years building time. Our Star Destroyer is one of the biggest star ships of our galaxy!

4. Lego MILLENNIUM FALCON

Lego, 5505 pieces

This Millennium Falcon is available since 2008 and up until today, it is one of the most expensive Lego sets available. With over 5.500 pieces, this set is also one of the biggest that was ever produced by Lego. To increase the value, the set should not be opened – but if you can’t resist and want to see the ship in all its glory anyway, you should plan to spend a lot of tie building it. Luckily, this lego set is not 40 years old quite yet, so that this ship is still easily available.

Minor detail: Next to R2-D2 you can find a limited edition golden C-3PO, which was only available in the US, and has become very rare.

4.1 Lego TURBO TANK REPAIR STATION

The Clone Turbo Tank consists of 1141 Pieces. It was released in 2010

The Turbo Tank Repair Station was built by a fan with a loving eye for detail, and it took him over six months to assemble the 6,920 pieces. Of course, it features the matching Clone Turbo Tank as well.

5. Live-size statues C-3PO and R2-D2

Barrel-shaped R2-D2 and his humanoid, golden friend C-3PO, who – based entirely on anthropomorphic role models – has a very human character, are among the most beloved characters. The protocol droid values etiquette and British politeness above all else, and even though he is anxious, pedantic and rather finicky, he is a loyal friend. R2-D2 on the other hand is an astromech and hence comes with diverse abilities: He is mechanic, navigator, can store and process massive amounts of data, replay holograms, hack into different computers, and if necessary he can fly and extinguish fire. His design is mainly functional: he is small and compact and his metal hull protects his tools and instruments. He is mainly loved for his somewhat clumsy waddle and his childish, but very expressive beeping noises.

6. The first 12 STAR WARS FIGURES on German Vintage Card

Manufacturer: Kenner / Scale 1:18

In 1977, Star Wars changed the world of action figures. George Lucas owned all rights to Star Wars Merchandise, and the licence for Star Wars action figures was sold to the company Kenner. Due to the large scale of the Star Wars Universe, the figures had to be smaller, so that vehicles and spacecrafts could be sold. Legend says that a Kenner employee once said during a meeting: "What about making them only this big?" and showed not even 10cm between his thumb and forefinger. This was how a new standard was born: the famous 3 3/4 inch format. In 1977, Star Wars was shown in cinemas, and the success was overwhelming. Kenner was not at all prepared for this unprecedented success and the resulting demand for toys. This demand couldn't be covered for the Christmas sales of 1977, so Kenner sold an "Early Bird Certificate Package", which could be traded for four Star Wars action figures. These figures were initially produced for children, but due to the fact that Star Wars became a popcultural phenomenon, many adult fans bought these figures, too. The Kenner series was produced and sold between 1978 and 1985. Our twelve vintage figures are based on so-called Custom Cards: reproductions of the figures from 1977.

7. Collection of PREMIUM FORMAT FIGURES

Manufacturer: Sideshow / scale 1:4

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.

9. Original screen-used parts from TATOOINE (Tunisia)

Tatooine was named after the town "Tataouine" in Tunisia. George Lucas filmed several Tatooine-scenes in various Tunisian locations, and these attract numerous tourists: some of the buildings used for filming can actually be visited today. Rumour has it that even the entrance to the Cantina still exists – as the entrance to a henhouse.

A diorama is a showcase which displays scenes with figurines or landscapes, usually in front of a painted background. Historically, they are the successors of nativity scenes.

10. Diorama MOS EISLEY SPACEPORT ON TATOOINE

powered by

More than 300 Hasbro figures are displayed here in Mos Eisley, and you can spot a lot of famous (and some not so famous) scenes.

Tatooine is an Outer Rim planet which circles the two suns Tatoo I and Tatoo II. The influence of ruling galactic powers is marginal in this region and additionally, the planet is ruled by the Hutts – hence, the planet is frequented by smugglers, bounty hunters and other people with “special” business interests.

“If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from.” Luke Skywalker to C-3PO

Settlers who aim to make a living on legal occupations usually try their luck with moisture farming. Moisture farms usually lie close to trading towns like Mos Eisley or Mos Espa.

A Sandcrawler is a tracked vehicle which is used by jawas as both habitation and transport for their droids. In 0 BBY, the two droids R2-D2 and C-3PO were hold captive within one of these vehicles, and later sold to moisture farmer Owen Lars. The vehicle is 20 metres high and crosses Tatooine’s deserts with 30km/h max. It transports 50 jawas and up to 1.500 droids.

11. Showcase PROTOTYPES FROM HASBRO

The company Hasbro was founded 1923 in the USA and offers toys since 1943. Since 1995 they produce the newer Star Wars figures – the very first Star Wars action figures were published between 1977 and 1985 by Kenner. In 1991, this company was taken over by Hasbro, who continued to sell Star Wars action figures under that name. All later figurines were sold under the name of Hasbro. By now, there are many different collections, among them several rare figures whose market value may yet increase. The size of these figures varies. The most famous are the 3 3/4-figures (ca. 10 cm tall). This size was produced by Kenner. Additionally, there are 6-inch figures (ca. 15 cm) and 12-inch figures (ca. 30cm).

The rotating showcase shows so-called working models - or prototypes. Hasbro placed these figures at our disposal so we can show them in our exhibition. Before figures are mass-produced using machines, they are manually crafted, painted, and tested. It is not until a prototype passes all necessary tests that it will be mass produced by machines.

13. Diorama X-WING FIGHTER ON YAVIN

built by Maxx Replicas/ Scale 1:18

This diorama shows the famous rebel hangar on Yavin IV. From here, both the assaults on the Death Star in "A New Hope" and on Scarif in "Rogue One" were launched. Yavin IV is the gas giant Yavin's fourth moon and mainly overgrown with jungle. Before the destruction of the first Death Star, the moon was used as headquarters for the Alliance to Restore the Republic for about two years. Shortly afterwards, the base was evacuated and the new headquarters moved to the ice planet Hoth. The Hangar was situated within old temple structures which were built by an ancient warrior race called the Massassi over 5,000 years prior.

15. Diorama BEHIND THE SCENES SPECIAL EFFECTS from Episode IV

Built by MAXX REPLICAS / scale 1:18

John Dykstra originally developed the Dykstraflex-system for the filming of complex Special-effects in the Movie Star Wars. It is a completely computer-supported camerasystem, which is able to be moved in seven axles. Dykstra controlled the focus and the lighting, which enabled him to repeat sequences of movements to achieve optimal lighting. The Dykstraflex-System made it possible to repeat the same camera movements over and over again, so that multiple parts of planets or spaceships could be recorded in the same position, even while they are moving. This new concept of filming made the dynamic pictures of Star Wars possible.

16. Diorama GEONOSIS

built by Starconstrux / 1:18

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.

17.1 Diorama CANTINA-ENTRANCE and COUNTER

built by Starconstrux / Scale 1:18

Here you can see the famous scene from Episode IV – A New Hope in which Obi-Wan Kenobi saves Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine, relieving him of one arm in the process.

17.2 Movie Prop: THE HAND OF PONDA BABA

Scale 1:1

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.

18. Life-size model K-2SO

built by markus Meier / Scale 1:1

K-2SO was an imperial KX-security droid that was reprogrammed by Cassian Andor so that he supported the rebels. He was part of the team that eventually stole the Death Star’s plans.

19. Diorama BRIEFING ROOM

20. Diorama SCARIF BEACH

built by Markus Meier/ Scale 1:18

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

built by Markus Meier/ Scale 1:18

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.

22.4 Diorama SHOOTOUT ON JEDHA

built by Max Karsch and Julian Otten / Scale 1:18

This diorama was built by Max Karsch and Julian Otten during their internship with us. They have hidden an easter egg in the scene: their names are written in Star Wars font on the wall to the right.

In this scene, taken from the film "Rogue One", Jyn Erso, who is on a mission on the planet Jedha, fires her weapon at an imperial droid in the heat of the moment – and that droid looks exactly like K-2SO. It is not until after she fires she shot that she realises that this could have been her team member just as well. Exactly at this moment, K-2 walks around the corner and asks: "Did you know that wasn't me?"

23. Diorama EWOK VILLAGE

“Bright Tree Village” is a Ewok village situated on the forest moon Endor. The name of the village derives from the repurposed tree within the centre of the village. It is home of the Ewoks who helped the Rebel Alliance defeat the Galactic Empire during the Battle of Endor. About 200 Ewoks populate Bright Tree Village. For many generations, the Ewok community in each tribe is governed by a chief and a shaman.

28. Diorama ORDER 66 ON FELUCIA

Aayla Secura was shot on Felucia by Commander Bly and his officers
"Order 66" refers to chancellor Palpatine's long planned conspiracy to annihilate the Jedi: Each clone soldier bore a secret chip implanted in their brain during their development. When Palpatine a.k.a. Darth Sidious activated this "clone protocol 66" via a spoken command, all Jedi turned against their Jedi officers, killing them. Very few Jedi managed to flee and survived the massacre. The clones didn't have any chance to resist the order, even if they had bonded with their Jedi commanders.

29. Life-size statues GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

In the boundless vastness of space, the American pilot and adventurer Peter Quill becomes the target of an intergalactic bounty hunt after he has stolen a mysterious stone. He is opposed by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that might destroy the entire galaxy. Quill is forced to team up with a ragtag quartet of oddballs, consisting of the weapon-wielding raccoon Rocket, the walking (and not so much talking) tree Groot, the vengeful muscleman Drax the Destroyer and the deadly assassin Gamora. German release date was the 28 August 2014.

Rocket, Gamora and Groot as 1:1 figures

This life-size model of Groot, humanoid tree creature from the species "Flora Colossus", was built by Markus Meier, who used a mannequin as a base and pipe lagging for the branch-like structures, which were enhanced with foam rubber and artificial grass. It took Markus two days to complete the model.

Photo taken during the construction: you can see the body of the mannequin that was used as basis for Groot

Within the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), Groot formed a formidable bounty hunter duo with his partner, Rocket Racoon. In the film, the two are founding members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside Peter Quill, Gamora and Drax. During the entire film, Groot only ever speaks three words: "I am Groot!" , giving it meaning by using different intonation and intensity. His last words in the film, however, are "We are Groot", showing how important the team has become for him.

30.1 Model X-WING CAPTAIN CARDBOARD

This X-Wing model was built in Studio Scale – the same size as the models that were used for filming. This model has a special history: during the filming of Star Wars, several X-Wings were produced and then, during the filming of certain scenes, blast to pieces. These pieces ended up in a box, which were packed away. When the special effects company ILM moved quarters, the boxes were left behind. When their old offices were cleared, these boxes were found, and the X-Wings were cleaned, reassembled and missing parts were replaced. These models were brought to the company ICONS, which finished the assembly and created moulds. One of these models was given to George Lucas, who exhibited it in his office. Unfortunately, these models are prone to sagging wings, which happened to Lucas’ model, too. He mentioned this problem to a colleague, who promised to repair the model – but for years, nothing happened. One day Scott Alexander (Captain Cardboard) visited Lucas in his office and agreed to repair it. Not only did he repair the X-Wing, but he also measured all components so that he had all measurements to sell an own modelling set: the so-called “Captain Cardboard-Kit”.

30.2 Movie prop ORIGINAL MOULD OF X-WING STARFIGHTER REAR PLATING FROM 1977

Salacious Crump was a male Kowakian monkey-lizard and lived in Jabba's palace on Tatooine. He was about 70cm tall and was regarded as Jabba's pet or jester. According to surveys, he's got the most vicious laugh in the whole galaxy. Legend says that Jabba only kept him alive if the monkey-lizard made Jabba laugh at least once a day. Because of their similarly mean humour, this was probably not too hard for him. Salicious lived on leftover food and was famous for his climbing skills and his fast reflexes.

34. Model of the MEDICAL FRIGATE from Episode V

The Nebulon B Frigate is a 300m long escort ship which was built by the Kuat Drive Yards for the Imperial fleet, in order to guarantee safety against the Rebel Alliance. Originally, these ships were known as EF76B escort frigate.

Mustafar is a small, volcanic planet in the Atravis-Sector, in the Outer Rim of the Galaxy. During the Clone Wars it served as hideout for the Separatists' leaders and as base of operations for the criminal syndicate Black Sun. In addition, Mustafar was the stage for the lightsaber battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.

36. Life-size statue CAPTAIN REX

Manufacturer: Gentle Giant/Scale: 1:1

Clone-Captain Rex served the Republic during the Clone Wars and often reported to Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. He regarded military service as an honour and always achieved his missions. His weapon of choice were two blaster pistols, and he marked his armour in a distinctive blue style. He was completely loyal towards the Republic and his Jedi Generals.

37. Life-size statue YODA EPISODE III

Yoda is only 66 centimetres tall and weighs 13 kilograms. His lightsaber abilities are legendary and he used to be among the fastest and best fighters the Jedi had to offer. However, very little is known about Yoda's species, and his home planet is never shown or even mentioned. The mysterious Jedi master lived to be 900 years old and witnessed the rise and fall the Galactic Republic as well as the Empire's dictatorship. For more than 800 years he trained Jedi Knights and Padawan and was one of the most important members of the Jedi Council. In contrast to the other Jedi he sensed a great danger as soon as Anakin Skywalker started his training. After the latter's turn into Darth Vader and during the rise of the Empire, Yoda went into exile on the swamp planet Dagobah. There, years later, he met Luke Skywalker, who wanted to continue his training as a Jedi. During this meeting, one of the most magical scenes in Star Wars take place: Yoda showed an astounded Luke that with the Force, it is possible to lift an entire X-Wing out of the swamp.

When Luke returned to Dagobah for the second time, Yoda was visibly aged, and peacefully passed away a short time later in Luke's presence. He became one with the Force and finally came back as a Force ghost.

During that visit, Maz gave Luk Skywalker's old lightsaber to Rey. The groups presence provoked the First Oder to destroy Maz' castle.

Instead, the helmet was loaded with energy fuelled by the Dark Side, which also caused Kylo to switch sides. It was Luke who kept the helmet as a memorial both to commemorate his father and to remind him of the dangers of the Dark Side.

manufacturer unknown – scale 1:1

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.

built by Starconstrux / Scale 1:18

Jabba's palace is a citadel in the western Dune Sea on the planet Tatooine. Famous as a monastery for the mysterious B'omarr-order, the palace was reused and heavily reinforced as Jabba's personal homestead when the crime boss moved his illegal operations to the out-law planet Tatooine. The illegal dealings were usually finalised in Jabba's throne room, that also housed a band, some Twi'lek dancers and a Rancor in a pit beneath the floor. To even get there, visitors had to pass the large gate that was guarded by a security droid. This droid was formed like a large computer eye protruding from a long mechanical arm. It scanned visitors for weapons and questioned them thoroughly. These TT-8L-droids were prone to obtrusive and impolite behaviour and enjoyed their position of power.

In A New Hope (1977), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is introduced as an anti-hero with one characteristic scene: He sits at a table in a bar, opposite bounty hunter Greedo, and both have their weapons drawn underneath the table. During this confrontation, it is Greedo who loses: Han shoots him in cold blood – or that is what happened in the film until 1997. In the Special Edition, which was published in that year, Lucas tells a different story: now it is Greedo who shoots first. He misses Han, who then shoots back himself, killing Greedo. Han is no longer the cold-blooded killer but rather acts in self-defence.

Feel like Han Solo and take a photo at our photo op!

47. Photo op HAN IN CARBONITE

built by Andreas Hempel

Han Solo in Carbonite is a limited exhibit from company Illusive Concept. The golden tag can be seen at the bottom.

Princess Leia disguised herself as bounty hunter Boushh in order to free Han Solo.

Salacious Crumb is famous for his mischievous laughter in the whole palace.

Next to Han Solo frozen in carbonite a Tauntaun-trophy can be found hanging on the wall.

Here, you will enter the former swimming pool. Up until 2006, people could jump from the 10m-tower into the 5m deep pool, but since 2011 we are expanding our exhibition bit by bit. Due to the lack of water, our building cannot be heated by the air ducts any longer; hence our premises are cool in summer and really cold in winter.

48. Life-size model LARA CROFT

Manufacturer Muckle Mannequins / Scale 1:1

Lara Croft is the protagonist of the video game franchise Tomb Raider. Developed by Toby Gard in 1994 she comes with a detailed back-story – or rather three, depending on the game. In the old movie adaptations, Lara is played by Angelina Jolie, though the movies do not have much in common with the games. 2018 will see a reboot with Alicia Vikander in the title role. All incarnations of Lara are archaeologists and adventurers and constantly looking for artefacts. She is battle-tried, knows how to defend herself and travels the entire world.

49. Lightsaber THE OLD REPUBLIC

This strictly limited lightsaber was produced by eFX and was made of metal and wood: it is the lightsaber Master Orgus Din uses in the computer game "The Old Republic (BioWare). It was never sold, but produced specifically for each game developer as a gift.

50.1 Life-size statue EPHANT MON

built by Dominique Stievenard / Scale 1:1

Ephant Mon is a male Chevin who worked in Jabba's Palace during Han Solo's escape attempt. He was 2.5m tall, had black eyes and blond hair. The Chevin are intelligent pachyderms with trunks, who spend their lives roaming the galaxy. In their trunks, they have strong scent sensors. They are usually two to three meters tall and are usually considered as to be wily – mostly they are to be found in dodgy areas and shady back-streets.

51. Large Collection WEAPONS AND LIGHTSABERS

The Lightsaber is the weapon of choice for all force sensitive beings – both Jedi and Sith. The hilt is usually about 30 cm long, and the Plasma-blades can sport different colours. Every Jedi and every Sith must build their own lightsaber, hence they are all unique – some of them just differ in details, others are look completely different, especially if they are used for different combat styles (e.g. Darth Maul). All the lightsabers though are powered by the same energy: a living kyber crystal. These crystals can be found at different places throughout the galaxy. An instable crystal can be used if the lightsaber is built to accommodate this: This is why Kylo Ren's lightsaber has two vents, used as crossguard. Lightsabers can famously cut almost any material.

53. Movie Prop CHEWBACCA'S BOWCASTER

Chewbacca's bowcaster was as unique as its owner. The weapon was perfectly fitted to his needs so that Chewbacca could use it in almost every situation with great skill and high precision – as for example on Endor, where he hit Scout Troopers hidden in trees and moving at high speeds.

54. Screen used Prop PACIFIER SPACE GUN from Sky High

SKY HIGH – SAVING THE WORLD... ONE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT AT A TIME.

"Sky High" is an elite school for really special pupils – because here, the super heroes of tomorrow are being taught. Among the students is newcomer Will. For him, life at Sky High is not easy: he is the son of Steve and Josie Stronghold, most famous superheroes in the world, but yet he cannot show any superpowers during the initial assessment. Hence, he ios assigned to "Hero Support" to become a sidekick. Especially the rebellious Warren Peace and his PE teacher Coach Boomer seem to have it in for him. Luckily, superhero Gwen Grayson casts an eye on him at the same time. Superhero or sidekick – everyone's looking forward to the Homecoming Dance, to which Will's parents are invited as honoured guests. But the evening takes an unexpected turn...

55. Screen Used Prop ANNIHILATOR 2000 from Beverly Hills Cop III

. The Annihilator 2000 is truly one of the most absurd weapons of film history. During a police operation, cop Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) is intrigued by this multimedia-machine gun, which he received from his acquaintance Serge (Bronson Pinchot), owner of the "Beverly Hills Survival Boutique", a shop for designer weapons. The weapon itself bears a lot of similarities to a Swiss Army knife: it includes night vision gear, CD-Player, digital radio, mobile phone, fax machine and a microwave. At first, Foley laughs, but then he starts to use the weapon himself.

58.1 Life-size statue IG-88

This thin, dark-grey droid was constructed as part of a covert Imperial project within the Holowan Laboratories. He is 2 metres tall and weighs 140 kilograms. Shortly after his activation and against his creators' intentions, he became self-aware and developed a strong sense of superiority over organic beings – which he immediately proved by killing his creators. After this incident, he became one of the most feared bounty hunters of the galaxy.

59.1 Model NABOO FIGHTER

The N-1-Starfighter was a light starfighter used by the Royal Naboo Security Forces. Due to its manoeuvrability and comparably heavy armament the N-1s were the figurehead of Naboo's starfighter corps and their most effective weapon against pirates and scavengers. Their slender form, the shiny chromium and the yellow finish was shown during numerous parades and escort flights for Naboo's leaders.

59.2 Model VULTURE DROIDS

These droid starfighters can be used quite well both in space and in atmosphere. Due to their design, they can transform into walking mode, enabling them to serve as ground forces, too. They can execute extremely agile manoeuvres and have high firepower, but due to their rather low droid intelligence, they are easy targets while on their own.

60. Life-size statue ADMIRAL ACKBAR

Admiral Ackbar's most famous line, "It's a trap!", used to be "It's a trick!" in the script. Test audiences took a dislike to phrase, so it was retroactively changed – and the rest is history.

AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) is the official designation of a massively armoured, four-legged assault walker, used by the Empire alongside their ground troops. Manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards, one walker was 20m long and 22.5m high. The Cockpit was positioned inside the walker's "head" and required three officers as navigators. The "belly" could hold up to 40 troopers and five speeder bikes. Of course, the AT-AT disposed of several blaster cannons, alongside its sensors and scanners.

78. Life-size models EPISODE V

78.1 WAMPA

Wampas are horned white Reptomammals and live in the ice desert of Hoth. They can be up to three metres tall and weigh about 150kg. As carnivores, they hunt tauntauns and other animals, storing them in their ice caves until they're hungry enough to eat. Due to their sharp teeth and claws, they are formidable predators – which is even further enhanced by their white fur, which is a perfect camouflage in ice and snow. Armed like this, a Wampa managed to ambush even Luke Skywalker to carry him into its cave to store him there as a snack.

79. Diorama THE BATTLE OF HOTH

On Hoth, the rebels kept their temporary headquarters, known as Echo Base. The hidden base was protected by starfighters, a shield and a big ion cannon. The generator had to be built outside in the mountain massif and was heavily protected. The south entrance lead to the big hangar, which could be evacuated quickly, if necessary. The transport hangar had two south entrances and was big enough to enable transports to arrive and land. The smaller Hangar 7 near the north entrance harboured the Millennium Falcon and the Renegade Squadron.
