The man who initially brought Lucas' vision to life & created so many timeless ships & aliens has passed away.
RIP Ralph. You're one with the Force now.

I remember being delighted that they actually interviewed him for the DVD releases of the original films. He seemed like a very likeable, approachable man. And he's directly responsible for the look of the film. Heck...it was his illustrations and sketches that convinced the bigwigs at 20th Century Fox to greenlight Star Wars. Next to George Lucas the man was Star Wars as far as I'm concerned. May God rest his soul and bring peace to his family.

Y'know, you guys just reminded me...I don't think I ever got that figure. I have most of the "McQuarrie" series figures, but not the man himself.
I have that and the figures that came from his artwork except starkiller
