SPECIAL EDITION CLASSIC IMAGE: SKYWALKER FIGHTS BACK!
Luke Skywalker's Rogue Flight soars into battle against Imperial firepower threatening the Rebel Alliance's existence, in this great image from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. All of the Snowspeeder model and cockpit scene elements filmed against blue screen and incorporating difficult white background optical overlays would receive welcome technical upgrades and fixes for the SPECIAL EDITION release, as well as the incorporation of a once deleted line from Mark Hamill...
Watch the recent Blu-ray release and you'll also see that, in the model shots of the speeders, Luke's vessel has a rank denoting grey stripe running done from the middle of the craft under the front canopy between the blaster weapons, whilst all the other craft bear orange markings.
