Do you remember the Star Wars 3D Sculpture Puzzles?

Do you remember the Star Wars 3D Sculpture puzzles that were briefly popular in the late 1990s?  We are fortunate to have the gray head prototypes of  Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Podracer Anakin prototypes in our museum collection!

These puzzle prototypes were sent to Lucasfilm Licensing for product approvals.

The pieces of each puzzle, on thin cardboard, had to be pushed out of their respective sheets and then stacked in proper order atop a thin plastic spindle attached to a plastic base. The pieces had small numbers on them (not in order of what needed to be stacked next) and a cheat sheet was included in the box for weary solvers.

Inspired by the Force: 1,000 Collectibles

In early 2007 Abrams approached Lucasfilm for Steve Sansweet to write a "365 days of collectibles" type book. Using the photos taken by Alex Ivanov as a foundation talks began on how the book would look. Eventually the project was to mimic the book Rolling Stone 1,000 Covers: A History of the Most Influential Magazine in Pop Culture.
