    Jabba’s puppet was so big that up to seven crew members were needed to operate it on set.

    Funny thing I realized only yesterday while watching ANH for about the bazillionth time, some of the Stormtroopers boarding the Tantive IV grabbed a real lemon when picking their helmets in the armory.

    Their model was missing the typical blue colored grill structure for the ‘Dymak Exhaust Filters’.

    Even later on, this none-exhaust-filter version could be spotted.

    I never was aware of this glitch until yesterday, but of course, I can cite the Wookipedia page on this, as I was the only blind guy so far:

    “In Episode IV, the mouth grill size on stormtrooper helmets is inconsistent. When a few stormtroopers go with an imprisoned Leia Organa, the one on the right has a long grill, while the one on the left has a short one. This is because two different designs were used for the helmets in the film. The first and most numerous was the stunt helmet, which had a larger frown, while the Hero helmet had a smaller frown among other differences.”


    And what I also learned from that article:

    “The canister on the rear belt was originally going to be a lightsaber/laser sword due to early drafts of the artwork and film script having swordplay be fairly common, and laser swords carried by nearly every character.”

    I also remember reading or hearing the behind the scenes of Rogue One that the Stormtrooper costumes were actually more comfortable and easier to breathe than the OT version of the costume.

    Probably due to the updated building techniques.
