Star Wars: Frames Book – George Lucas’ Favorite Picks StillsGeorge Lucas spent five years combing through every single frame of the entire Star Wars saga for Star Wars: Frames, a handcrafted book collection that tells the rise and fall of the Skywalker clan. Priced at $3,000 and arriving early this year, the Star Wars: Frames boxed book set documents each installment from the sci-fi saga with film images hand-picked by the filmmaker.
After sifting through more than 200,000 frames per film, Lucas said this about the chosen images: Cinematography is not about technology. It’s about lighting, it’s about composition, it’s about taste. In the end, it’s about understanding your craft. Encompassing more than 1,400 images, the books come packaged in a spring-loaded, 25-inch-wide hardwood case with exotic inlays and sculpted medallions depicting Darth Vader and Yoda. Each set is numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Lucas, who began the project in 2005.
Original Darth Vader Costume
Diehard Star Wars fans may want to save their pennies now that an Original Darth Vader costume from the The Empire Strikes Back (1980), will be up for sale at Christie’s Auction House. The jet-black helmet, mask and armor worn by the intergalactic villain are expected to sell for between £160,000 and £230,000 ($250,000 and $365,000) at a sale of pop culture memorabilia on November 25 in London. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale will benefit Cancer Research UK.
Neil Roberts, head of the popular culture department at Christie’s, cited: Darth Vader is defined by his costume, which has made him one of the most recognised characters from the history of film. Christie’s have sold some incredible relics from popular culture in the past from Dorothy’s red slippers from The Wizard Of Oz to a dress made for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s; arguably the Darth Vader costume is the most iconic of all.
Darth Vader car sports the 8.3-liter V10 motor pushing out over 800-hp with 23-inch wheels. Details pretty much stop there but apparently Lamborghini Geneve offers any style and colored interior along with any color exterior for whatever buyer may be interested.
