Concept art and production pieces for abandoned Star Wars toys

The panel opened with a tribute of sorts to toy legend Mark Boydreaux, Senior Principal Designer for the Star Wars brand. It was actually quite fun and touching to see the photos and hear the stories of the man who designed the original Millenium Falcon. With the brand since the Kenner days, he even lent them pictures of production pieces that never made it to market and were presented on how to “continue” Star Wars to Lucasfilm after Return of the Jedi left theaters.
