STAR WARS Set Images Reveal Ralph McQuarrie Inspired C3PO & Darth Vader Suit Designs
The following costumes aren't exactly the same as the original McQuarrie designs (C3PO in particular looked a lot more like the android from Metropolis), but you can certainly see the inspiration there. Do you think Lucas and co. should have stuck more closely to the designs below, or are you glad they made the alterations they did?
We've all seen the original McQuarrie concept designs for Star Wars: A New Hope but before their looks were altered did you know they actually made it to costume test phase? Check out snaps of Anthony Daniels as a fairly different looking C3PO, and a look at the Vader outfit too..
