  • I'm here at the Lucasfilm compound

  • at the Presidio in San Francisco.

  • This is a place where they literally manufacture

  • magic and wonder.

  • As you can see there's a statue of Yoda right here.

  • Yoda is 900 years old.

  • So as you can see, he has a bladder control problem.

  • Pee, I must.

  • (Star Wars orchestral music)

  • (audience cheering)

  • This is John Singh.

  • Hi John, how are you?

  • Hi, nice to meet you.

  • And you work here at Lucasfilm?

  • I do, welcome.

  • Here, we have some of the original costumes from the movies.

  • This is incredible.

  • Now this, I don't know a lot about Star Wars.

  • This is Darth Vader, is that correct?

  • This is Darth Vader, yes.

  • Looks like there's a retractable door here.

  • (audience laughing)

  • It does look like that, yeah.

  • You can just push,

  • I think it's this button and then

  • (imitating mechanical whirring)

  • (loud exhaling whoosh)

  • Yes, much better.

  • This is Jordan Schlansky.

  • Hi. He's a producer on our show.

  • Hi, Jordan. It's a pleasure.

  • How are you? Good to see you.

  • Jordan is our resident Star Wars expert.

  • Is that fair to say, Jordan?

  • Yes, sir.

  • Jordan, you have some problems

  • with this Darth Vader costume?

  • Well, I just noticed that John had said

  • that it was an original

  • and then I also noticed that the chest plate

  • doesn't have the Hebrew lettering

  • in these three areas that the original has,

  • which led me to believe that maybe it actually is a replica.

  • It probably is.

  • I see.

  • So earlier, when you said you think this is the original,

  • you were lying to me.

  • I was misinformed.

  • [Male Voiceover] Liar.

  • There's Darth Maul's lightsaber,

  • a double-bladed lightsaber.

  • And Darth Maul actually specializes in musical theater.

  • Is that right?

  • I'm gonna wow ya!

  • This is, he's a bounty hunter, I think I know that.

  • Yeah, very good, yeah.

  • And he has some braids from Jedi.

  • Oh, what's that all about? What is that?

  • Yeah, these are the braids from the Jedi that he's killed.

  • Jordan, do you know any inaccuracies

  • with the Boba Fett costume?

  • Well, John, the one thing that you mentioned that,

  • again I question, was you would call these Jedi braids.

  • I'd always heard of them referred to as Wookiee braids.

  • [Male Voiceover] Liar.

  • This is one of the operations that was used

  • in a shot for his chest.

  • Has he heard of Nivea cream?

  • Look at his arm.

  • For four million light-years, it's a long trip.

  • Okay, you just said four million light-years.

  • Yep.

  • Jordan, would you step in please?

  • How you doing?

  • Yeah, what is it?

  • It's actually six million light-years

  • from home E.T. traveled.

  • [Male Voiceover] Sad.

  • (audience laughing)

  • The original models and props,

  • even though this is from Dragon Slayer.

  • One of the other cool things we have

  • is one of the original whips used from Indiana Jones.

  • (suspenseful music)

  • (whip cracking)

  • Do you mind if I,

  • is it okay if I-- Sure, go ahead.

  • Yeah, look it. Oh, wow.

  • Look at that.

  • (whip cracking)

  • Whoa, did you hear that?

  • Look at that.

  • (whip cracking)

  • Ow, I just whipped myself in the back.

  • One of the original Imperial Walkers.

  • Oh, cool. Yeah.

  • These are so cool. Yeah.

  • Look at that.

  • I remember those walk.

  • Yeah, from The Empire Strikes Back.

  • Yeah.

  • (lasers shooting)

  • (jet whooshing)

  • I love the way these things were sort of just like--

  • Yeah.

  • (audience jeering)

  • I think this goes here.

  • No, you have the wrong one.

  • Problem is this part needs to go in here

  • to get that tab in.

  • I don't get this.

  • Pretty much there.

  • (audience laughing)

  • This is Industrial Light & Magic.

  • This is Industrial Light & Magic.

  • They're pretty much the biggest visual effects company

  • in the entertainment industry.

  • You mind if we come in for a sec?

  • No, don't mind at all.

  • This is our nerd corner here.

  • Nerd corner.

  • That's what we call it.

  • You said it, I didn't.

  • Hi, what is your name?

  • My name's Charles.

  • Hey Charles, really good to meet you.

  • What is this fan for?

  • This is,

  • this is so you never have to go outside

  • to experience a cool breeze. That's right.

  • It simulates an outdoor experience.

  • Simulates what it will be like

  • if you took 10 steps and walked outside.

  • Absolutely.

  • Kevin, is that correct? Kevin, yeah you're right.

  • I want to ask you quickly

  • about your professional wrestling figures.

  • Okay, yeah. What's that all about?

  • Basically, my folks just wanted them

  • to get out of the house.

  • [Kevin] Big John Studd. [Conan] Yes.

  • [Kevin] King Kong Bundy. [Conan] Yes.

  • And I was like, I'll take these.

  • I know exactly where they'll fit in great.

  • Were they worried that you have a vast collection

  • of men without shirts?

  • (audience laughing)

  • This is Maia, is that right?

  • Maia? Yes, Maia.

  • Which, Maia?

  • Kayser.

  • Maia Kayser.

  • I thought you two should meet.

  • Hey. Hi.

  • This is Mike Sanders, is that right?

  • That's correct.

  • What we're gonna do is turn this place into a virtual studio

  • of some digital creatures.

  • And to do that I need to get into a special...

  • It's a

  • humbling lycra suit.

  • Why you say humbling?

  • Well, we're gonna find out.

  • Perfect.

  • (dramatic trombone music)
