Yes, at the Barbican. Still have a few momentos in a box somewhere. I love'd you could work the animatronics on Ree Yees.

It's similar the current one st the o2.

I didn't see it at the Barbican but I did see it at the Photography museum in Bradford later that year. Cracking exhibition - I particularly remember seeing the Logray costume, the Star Destroyer prop, R2 and 3PO. I have some pictures somewhere, I'm just not sure where...

Yes I went to that, with the pod racer you could sit in for photo's, and remember seeing the land speeder with Steve Austin, bionic man at the controls, dressed as Luke :) photo's bit naff but still had my camera for the 80's

It was a excellent show, I remember I had an ex-girlfriend with me and she hurried me through. Wish I'd gone alone so I could have soaked more of it in. Oh to be 21 again :lol:

I also went to the Barbican Exhibition and thoroughly enjoyed it. Like others, I too have some photos, which I have scanned this evening and post below at the risk of hijacking this thread somewhat (please accept my apologies StarWarsFan! :oops: ). I went as part of a group and it's not really fair to show their faces without permission, hence the masking! :-D

Lastly, apologies for the less than stellar picture quality. This was most definitely before my first digital camera!

Group 1:

01 - Maul.jpg


02 - R2-D2 & C-3PO.jpg


03 - Amidala.jpg


04 - Boba Fett.jpg


05 - Han & Chewie.jpg


06 - Falcon & Destroyer.jpg


07 - Boba Fett 2.jpg


08 - Naboo N-1.jpg


09 - Naboo N-1 2.jpg


10 - TIE Fighter.jpg
