Never-Before-Seen Images from the Making of Star Wars: Episode IV

Never-Before-Seen Images from the Making of Star Wars: Episode IV

This is breaking news and a Lego Brick Guy exclusive! Never-before-seen images taken behind the scenes during the making of the original Star Wars released in theaters in 1977 have just been unearthed forty years later! They were discovered just a few days ago hidden at the bottom of my children's sandbox because that's where I took the photos. NO!...I mean they were discovered deep in the Tunisian deserts. Yes, that's where they were found. The photographs are of George Lucas, R2-D2 [Kenny Baker], and C-3PO [Anthony Daniels] filming on the deserts of Tunisia in North Africa. In the film these scenes are meant to represent the planet Tatooine.

To the best of my knowledge, LucasFilm was unaware of the existence of these now clearly and obviously priceless photographs. I have reached out to LucasFilm to make them aware of their existence and have asked for my very own functional astromech droid in exchange for the photos. LucasFilm has yet to respond. It's only a matter of time. Until then, I've decided to let you all actually view these ultra rare photographs. All I ask is that you do not share these images with LucasFilm...until I get my droid. Thanks in advance and enjoy!
