San Diego Comic-Con 2014UPDATE:  the slideshow photos have been added to the SDCC gallery.

The panel is moderated by Anita Castellar of Lucas Licensing and includes Dan Lujan from Kotobukiya, Ashley Powell from Gentle Giant, Bryan Ono and Gino Sabatino from eFX, David Igo, Mike Tolentino, and Matt Bischol from Sideshow.

eFX Collectibles

Video of Yoda puppet lip-synching lines from ESB.
– Stormtrooper Concept Helmet. Going back to McQuarrie concept lines. The helmet was personally chosen by Ralph for eFX to make.
Photo-realistic 3D model was approved by Ralph in February 2011. Ralph helped them finish the backside of the helmet, which was not
seen in his artwork.
– Yoda Puppet. A huge undertaking that took a lot of research. Got an original head that belonged to Stuart Freeborn and cast it – also
ears, feet, hands, feet, teeth, cane, flute – you name it, they got it. Authentic to ESB and ROTJ. When Freeborn passed, the pieces went to
private collectors. eFX tracked them down and acquired the pieces for casting. Patterns for robe and tunic were taken from the screen-used
Yoda puppet in the Lucasfilm Archives. Still a work in progress.
