Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back: A group of sketches including Imperial characters, Snowtrooper, General Veers and Admeril Ozzel,
Lucasfilm, 1980,
two post-production sketches of 'Admiral Ozzel' one in pencil the other pencil and ink, photocopies of 'Imperial officers' and colour photocopies including a 'TIE Fighter pilot', with a page detailing two 'Snowtroopers' and 'General Veers' with notes in John Mollo's hand, each 8 1/4in x 12in (21cm x 30.5cm)

Footnotes

  • The Imperial cold weather 'Snowtrooper' sketches are as their final screen used designs and feature a combination of hard and soft parts. 'General Veers' is similarly close to the final design with helmet, goggles, chest-piece and uniform. There are notes and annotations in Mollo's hand referencing the work required to reform some of the original 'Stormtrooper' costumes for use in The Empire Strikes Back. Though initially it was hoped that near to 50 of the original suits could be recovered, in the end it was no more than a dozen.

    The drawing of 'Admiral Ozzel' is close to the final design, although the character design was practically the same as the 'Imperial Officer' costumes used in A New Hope. To cost cut some of the same costumes were re-used. 'General Veers' in Hoth armour and the 'Imperial Officers' sketches both represent the finished costumes.

    Provenance:
