‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ – New Photos of the Millennium Falcon

Fortune Magazine has released the cover for their upcoming January issue featuring Disney CEO Bob Iger posing next to the Millennium Falcon from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ 

Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) worked their magic to create the cover and the composite image of Iger.

Yannick Dusseault, visual effects art director for The Force Awakens, and his team gave Fortunesix options showing the Falcon in different ways. The resulting image required the custom rendering of ILM’s computer generated Falcon. According to ILM, the fabled ship was rendered in wireframe form (a skeletal version) as well as a more layered “textured render,” which were combined in Photoshop to create the final image.

I’m just going to leave this here and let you gaze upon its awesomeness. :-)

Mandalorian by Orlando Arocena

In my hall of fandom- there are only 3 icons I have been a big fan of:
Bruce Lee • Batman and Boba Fett .
Yes, I remember the animated short from the Christmas Holiday Special where he first appeared
and later went crazy when he showed up in the Empire Strikes Back.
Such a fan as a kid, that I even mailed in ( < yeah, no internet back in the early 1980’s) for a chance to get this action figure- which would cause a stir with parents becuase of his rocket firing back pack.
Well, its been a long time waiting and finally happy to pay tribute to him and his ship the Slave I
with my popdeco vector style.

Cheers and enjoy to all you “Dented Bucket Heads” out there.
