    2. Hold on…having a geek moment:

      I think this was done by Ralph MacQuarrrie, during pre-production of the original (probably done in 1975 or ’76) primarily to flesh out what Vader would ultimately look like. I gotta wonder how far Lucas had the script worked out, what with Vader’s opponent being somewhat ambiguous (wouldn’t surprise me if it was still “Deke Starkiller” at that point).

    5. General Anakin Starkiller vs Vader!

      Seriously, Lucas got Lucky with a capital C on the first two Star Wars films. You can start to see the breakdown into his own ego right around the time the Ewoks appear…

    7. Kotobukiya made a pretty amazing statue of the painting some time ago:

      “With only Lucas’ script as a reference, McQuarrie played a pivotal role in creating the look of the Star Wars universe, and most famously helped to create the visual image of the most feared villain in cinematic history: Darth Vader.

      As tribute to the 30th anniversary of Episode IV: A New Hope, the legendary original painting depicting a lightsaber duel between Lord Vader with Luke Skywalker has been fully realized in three dimensions as an ARTFX Statue. The artisans of KOTOBUKIYA have taken great pains to faithfully reproduce McQuarrie’s every detail, from Vader’s samurai inspired mask, to Luke’s unseen-in-film breathing apparatus. Able to be assembled in seconds, this kit not only celebrates the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, but it is also the 30th ARTFX Statue in KOTOBUKIYA’s popular Star Wars line!

      The two figures can be displayed together, locked in the iconic pose made famous by McQuarrie’s classic illustration, or separately. Together, the combined bases measure approximately 16.5 inches long, with Vader standing about 11 inches tall.”

    9. Gassy flashlights.

      Ever since I got a glimpse of all the concept art I’ve had an internal debate on which ones I like better.

    10. I own the portfoilio in which this picture came from. It is a portfolio of concept art for starwars and there about 20 pictures in it all about 15″x20 or so inches, they come in a stock card fold out cover and there is a full descripion in teh portfoilio of what teh images are and why he did them. I would love to add more info, but its at home and I am at work at the moment. I was merely looking for it online as this was given to my by my mother in 1977 and I have kept it in mint shape since then. I jsut came across it the other day when cleaning out my basement and I am trying to find out if it is worth anything, so far, I cant find it, but I have come across a bunch of the pictures on google images, but not the actual portfolio with ALL of te pictures in it.
