EDIT: Here are the photos to the exhibit I took my two girls to in Wichita, Kansas. Right now it's on it's way to Orlando where it will be put away for good after seven years of traveling the globe. Smile

PHOTOS HERE: Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination!


I know some or man of you have seen the "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination".

On Saturday my girls and parents drove to Stillwater to watch an 84-0 OSU wn (GO POKES!), but I knew this would be my last chance to see the traveling exhibit. Seven years going around the world, it ended up in little Wichita, Kansas for it's last appearance befoe it's boxed up and shipped to Orlando for good. (I am soooo tired from driving 10 hours the past two day)

So my girls and I drive up the extra 1 1/2 hours north, stayed the night. Got to the museum at 11:45 a.m. (opens at noon) and left at 5:30 (closes at 5).

We had SO MUCH FREAKING FUN! The movie used props were mind blowing. The full scale and small scale Falcon, Luke's X-Wing, an original landspeeder, the Blockade Runner and several other ships used in the movies. They had members of the 501st on hand for the kids, grown up kids Smile

Then there were the movie used outfits/costumes. Simply amazing, that's the only way I can explain it. They had a Yoda, Chewy along side Han Solo, two other 8-foot tall Wookies, Princess Leia's white outfit (from when she was captured), Pricness Padme's white outfit, Darth Vader, his helmet from Episode III, Mace's and Anakin's Jedi outfit (black for Anakin from Ep. III). R2D2 (costume, not the robot), C3PO, two medical droids, a stormstrooper, snowtrooper, battle droid and Droideka, Tuskin Raider (man and woman), Episdoe I, II, & II 3CPO, and vaious other doids. They also had blasters and light sabers.

I am soooo glad we went. The girls had so much fun, we couldn't stop taking photos..... I''m going to have to upload photos to a photo account or something. There are almost 200 and I guess making the album open to the public doesn't help. Odd.


There are a LOT of neat posters we saw at first, from around the world. The Koren, Russian and Japanese were the coolest/most interesting ones. Just a few examples from my album:

I mean, it was their full scale 'model' they used for the big shots. It was about 6 feet long. It's the one with all the crazy stickers (Champion Oil), F-4 Fathom RESCUE, Canopy warning, the Hwy 1 sign). AMAZING. I'll have pics up here at some point. They are great Smile

Looks like you and your Girls had a good day out well worth the extra drive. The last one I took my little one to was bad we could not stop laughing all the way round, but the one you went to looks like a well laid out exhibition

I'm going to have to add the pics to an online photo album, I made my facebook album public but it won't show for some reason (I logged out and clicked on the link, didn't work).

Top notch exhibition, and looks like the girls really enjoyed it too. The scale models of the ships and vehicles look superb - as do the costumes. And wow to the artwork on some of those posters on the last page - superb! Thanks for sharing Cool



Love these !

We got there 30 minutes early (before it opened) so we spent that time looking at all the posters and they were all amazing. ALL original from US posters to overseas. The Asian posters were some of the most amazing ones. Russian poster had Darth Vader with fangs and a series of light sabers on top of his head. Just insane art all around and I can't imagine the value of the posters since they are all original.

Then the exhibit was mind-blowing really. Being just 1/4 of glass away from childhood dreams was really a treat. Seeing the Corvette, seeing the Falcon, Luke's X-Wing.... all used in the movies. So cool. Only thing that would have made it better if is they would have had saved some of the Death Star (the mini-model that was found in Missouri), Slave I or Luke's costumes (any of them).

All of the sabers were recent movie ones, all the old ones must either be with Lucas... museums or in private collectors hands (I know one that I saw, Vaders, on Comic Book Men last season). Then a lot of the large Death Star was broken up and thrown away, some saved and now Prop Store sells quite a bit of it (which I NEED!!!!) Smile

I remember seeing that exhibit when it was in COSI Columbus a few years ago, it was awesome! That's where my daughter fell in love with R2D2, she was about his size at the time, lol.

That's what I was saying before it came to someplace 'close' to where I live (within 4 hours). It was in Forth Worth once, but I didn't know about it back then.

Look ^^^^^^ Smile

I posted the seven year schedule, so here is Orlando! Orlando Science Center, Orlando, FL - October 13, 2012 – March 17, 2013

If you can go, DO-NOT-MISS-IT! If it's in a 5 hour driving distance, DO-NOT-MISS-IT!!!

I had planned on going earlier this summer with my girls, spending 4 days or so in Wichita (they have a great water park right outside the city, lots of neat museums thanks to their aviation and space history). But since we burned through our Daddy-Daughter money during Spring Break (I take my girls on a Daddy/Daughter trip EVERY year), I didn't think we would be able to make it... but again, with the timing of the OSU football game and it being the final weekend for the exhibit, SOOOOO happy we went.

It was like, "DADDY! LOOK AT THIS!" and a second later, "DAD! LOOK AT THIS!" while I was in awe of what I was seeing when I walked in the door.... the huge large model of the Falcon. I probably spent 70% of my time and 80% of my photos on that Falcon.
