Highlights include a 16-foot-long sculpture of villain Jabba the Hutt, a full-sized model of Anakin Skywalker's pod racer, a six-foot-tall reconnaissance droid, and a recreation of Emperor Palpatine's throne room. There are also hundreds of photos, posters, props, statues, video games, costumes, and more.
