Zookastar welcome Brian Muir, sculptor & designer extraordinaire…

Brian Muir is a notable British sculptor who most famously created Darth Vader’s helmet and armour using Ralph McQuarrie’s design.  He was also responsible for sculpting the Stormtrooper armour in Star Wars and the heads for the Death Star Droid, CZ3 and some finishing work on the CP30 full suit.

Apart from Star Wars, he has worked on many other movies such as Alien (for which he co-created the Space Jockey), and Raiders of the Lost Ark (for which he worked on the Ark of the Covenant prop).  Brian’s work has featured in the Harry Potter films, Skyfall, Sherlock Holmes, and countless others.

Brian will be with us on 31st October for both a Q&A session, (you can send in your questions ahead of time to info@zookastar.com marked ‘Brian Muir Q&A’), and will also be signing books and photos in the main exhibition hall.
