BEHIND THE SCENES: INSIDE ARTOO!
An original blueprint, circa late 1975, for the construction of Artoo Detoo, and how the later cast Kenny Baker would be inside operating it, from the original STAR WARS.
STAR WARS AFICIONADO was sad to hear of the passing this week of one of the Astro Droid's most important practical realisers, freelancing with Elstree for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK's UK production phase: Tony Dyson.
