Day three of our EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE 3D release behind the scenes photo tribute. A group of technicians ready reference mock ups of Trade Federation Battle Droids for use in a sequence set within the expansive Naboo Theed City fighter bay hangar, built in all its epic splendour at London's LEAVESDEN STUDIOS. The Droids would ultimately make useless combat fighters against the Jedi Knights, who would, as Lucas tells his old pal visiting the set, Steven Spielberg, "cut them up like butter!"
