Original Outlander Club bar - Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

Post by MattG »

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, we finished up a recover-and-restore project on this Outlander Club bar set piece and moved it from the workshop into our display room. It is from the scene where Obi-Wan Kenobi turns down the offer of death sticks, and defeats Zam Wesell's ambush attempt. This was a large set component that was rescued from the junk pile when the Outlander Club set was broken down after filming in Sydney for Episode 2. We cleaned it up, re-attached some components that had become detached, and build a new support base to keep it off the ground and to bring it up to the correct display height (everything above the metal foot bar is original, except for the internal lighting, which has also been replaced... and will probably get upgraded to something better in the near future).

A couple of wider shots. Have got plans to fill the space behind the bar, including some other, related, screen-used Star Wars set pieces, but that'll take a bit more work (the yellow Outlander Club sign is just a quick placeholder)

That's an impressive piece, especially screen-used. It will look absolutely stunning with some background to it (and a couple of drunk aliens leaning on the bar). The blue drinks make it real!

That's beyond amazing!!! :blink:

Also - and forgive me for going off-topic - but I was looking through the Flickr albums and found a presence of an Imperial Officer...a presence I'd not felt since....

Awesome 2005 flashback - yes, that's Kristy and me, with the Death Star backdrop we built.

Digging through some old behind-the-scenes for more reference pics... this one of the Outlander Club bar is from Star Wars Mythmaking: Behind the Scenes of Attack of the Clones.

This Outlander Club set took a couple of months to build, was used for filming for less than a full day, then demolished (mostly) in order for another set to be built in the studio the next day.
