Star Wars prop builder to appear in Banbury meet and greet
Bill Hargreaves started his prop building career on another legendary sci-fi film, 1979’s Alien.
Mr Hargreaves went on to build props for both Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
His most notable creation is Empire’s IG-88 assassin droid, which he also operated during the film.
He also built props for An American Werewolf in London and Gladiator starring Russell Crowe.
Mr Hargreaves will be appearing at Comic Connections in Banbury’s Parson’s Street on Saturday, November 10 between 11am and 4.30pm.
Pictures and models of the infamous IG-88 will be for sale along with other memorabilia.
