    ¿quien es mas O-T?

    you mas as well go ahead and delete this now, GSJ, because it's as off-topic as anything ever posted in the MM/AF forum.....


    Am I just light years behind the trivia curve, or is this not common knowledge in the SW community?....

    In one of the scenes from Watto's junkyard, there's a space pod from the 2001 movie in the background.

    Yeah, this is a little easter egg wanted by GL himself as a tribute to Stanley's work. The pod is the real one used in 2001.

    It can also be seen near the Cantina is the old edition (original) of ANH. As far as I remember it has disapeared from the 1997 special edition...

    What an HONOR!

    Swaffy, I would agree that you're a little behind the times on that one.

    Rumor has it that you can see the Enterprise-D on Coruscant in Ep 1, but I've never successfully found it yet.

    I would love to have an AF 2001: A Space Pod, or Pan Am shuttle, or the Discovery (but that one would be tough to do in AF scale while retaining detail and being strong enough not to break)

    Oh no! I've made this thread on-topic! ACK!
