Call Your Inner Nerd Out! – Authentic Star Wars Art Exhibition

the sign.

It was a total serendipity. One of the best nerdy moments for sure. I witnessed the authentic Starwars exhibit. Original designs, sketches, figures made in 70s, light saber… I hardly can straight my head.

 

Okay, how I got to see that? It was in Singapore, but I didn’t aim to it, I’m not that much of a nerd… Just a little bit. On my way to out from the airport, and there it was, the shiny banner says “The art of Star wars Exhibition”. It was a sign.

 

It was at the Singapore science centre. Works for me, since I’m a fan of science as well. I guess it’s not the usual tour route for tourists based on the fact that I was the only one there. Maybe because I’m at the Science centre for STAR WARS fare at Chinese New Year’s holiday by MYSELF.

 

I’m sorry in advance that I can’t stop my nerdiness is pouring out of me. Leslie’s TV test told me that I’m a secret nerd, and this is the moment I become super nerd by trigger. Thank you Singapore!

 

The chair of almighty George Lucas. What a briliant man, creates the whole new world. It started from his idea book when he was seventeen, as I heard. Brilliant.

 

Deathstar!!!

 

R2D2, the royal friend. Isn’t he the sweetest? And can you believe it? He is the same one we saw in the movie. Authentic indeed!

 

 

Chewy, also same one from the movie, not a replica. Oh chewy!

 

 

The great Mileniom Falcon. Who would think of this design? Gorgeous.

 

 

The art works impressed me the most. It felt like I could see how they thought, came out with the idea, how they made the scene… This touch of pencil, it shows their passion and hard work. And I felt appreciation.

 

 

Fighting scene between Darth vader and Luke Skywalker.

 

 

Revenge of the Jedi, original post. Even before I came to this world.

 

 

Authentic paiting of Death star.

 

 

Java the hut, also originally from the movie. This is the place where Princess Leia held from him and sit in front of him with the bikini.

 

 

Detail of C3PO. He is the  only one who is in every six movies of Starwars.

 

 

This is the one, We all dream once to have one of those thing. Darth vador voice changer. “Shhh~ Shhhh~ I- am your father”

 

 

Natalie Portman was sexy in this uniform. Just plain white pants and shirt but she was perfect for the part. Brave, wise and beautiful.

 

 

Master Yoda. And I can’t help to notice the signiture under his painting is a name of Korean.

 

 

The scene why Anakin became Darth Vader. Also, painting and reflection of me and my camera.

 

 

It’s a part of real set. Wow, looks so real.

 

 

Here he is. After a half of tour… now he presents himself. Also, very authentic.

 

 

Light saber. Oh I want to have one of this for years! But not just handle, a proper one with laser.

 

 

Start and finish the grand tour with the autograph of George Lucas who creates millions of nerds all over the world.

    Love it! Your post reminds me of the NY Comic Con convention. I saw plenty of Chewbaccas and other Star Wars characters walking around the show! I have to say, this post put you in “out and out nerd” territory. You’ve left the “secret nerd” realm! lol

    • Juno says:

      Oh I would love to go Comic Con! 🙂 I will be…….. I don’t know. Too many things I want to be. hehe! Am I not a secret nerd anymore? Oh my, I reveal my secret, ooops!

  2. Zablon says:

    i never knew you were a star wars fan

  3. vernon says:

    Nice post! Its a light saber not light saver. But yes, we must go green!

  4. Giulia says:

    Ohhh my dear, I am such a nerd too! I wanted to go to the Science Center but didn’t make it. Lovely you 🙂

    • Juno says:

      haha Thought you might like this! 🙂 Other things in Science centre was cool too. Just didn’t take any photos. hehe Wonder they are having another exotic exhibitions..

    You don’t have to be a nerd to like this! This is awesome! Nerds and sci-fi fans unite! Love Star Wars (and I am not a sci fi person)! This is one of the best posts you have ever done! 🙂

    • Juno says:

      haha ! Thanks Jeremy! 🙂 Isn’t it great? Those sketches really make my heart fluttered! I couldn’t believe what I saw!!!! 🙂
      What is your favourite episode? The New Hope is my favourite. 🙂

  6. This is AWESOME!! I have to agree that The New Hope is my fave episode as well. I remember when my old man took me to see Empire Strikes Back and The New Hope in the theatre as a double feature when it first came out. I’ve been a fan ever since.

    • Juno says:

      Yeah, 5th is really dynamic and all but it’s too dark! Brilliant, but dark. I liked when Luke first discovered his ability. Luke Skywalker is different than any other heros , is that he makes a lot of mistakes and he needs others help. Partially a born hero, but growing hero as well.

    I’m a self confessed Star Wars nerd! I saw this exhibition in Sydney a few years back, it was brilliant!!! 🙂

    • Juno says:

      It was, wasn’t it?? I was totally hooked by all the things…. I stayed there for hours and hours. What a nerdy thing to do. The original darth vader was just breath taking. Can’t believe he made all that in about 40 years ago!

  8. Gray says:

    I am a total nerd–I would have loved to have seen this! I wish it would come to a city near me.

  9. Randy says:

    Wow, that is Awesome! I feel the force is strong with you Ms. Juno. Great photo essay.

  10. Awesome exhibit! So cool that you got to see it…we’re big fans of the films. Such great characters…

  11. Ted Nelson says:

    I used to be a nerd when I was younger and collected Star Wars figures. Those were some great movies, but I cannot get into any of the recent Star Wars films.

    • Juno says:

      Yeah me neither. But I was glad to see the third one finally. It’s like a closure for two of awful new ones. I can’t believe he made those in 70s and still so good.

  12. I had hope that there was a Star Wars exhibition somewhere in Korea now. So sad this is an old post! But still, it looks like an amazing time. Glad to meet a fellow nerd 🙂 May the Force be with you!
