PostSubject: Locate the tractor seat in the original trilogy!   Mon Nov 07, 2011 10:25 pm

Hi Guys,

we all know that the prop makers and set makes on the original star wars used anything and everything to dress the sets and make props...There is an old tractor seat in the original trilogy somewhere. I stumbled upon this weird detail while watching the movies recently, quite a fun Easter egg to find.

Bragging rights goes to the first person who spots this!

cheers!

I saw a tractor beam somewhere but totally missed the tractor seat. Very Happy

My guess: Ackbar's seat?

Second guess: Bespin Junk Pile?

(I know about the broken IG-88 there, maybe there is a loose tractor seat as well)

it is not evident but it does have several clear moments of screen time, you just have to keep looking for it. Smile

clue: when looking, think fairly old....

Hey Bud, cool movie-related random mini quiz! Smile



The only tractor I could find was the famous 'agricultural battle scene' in ROTJ, this one...








lol!

okay, my real guess is Luke's gunner chair in the Millenium Falcon in SW?
