Stormtooper Wars IV: A New Lawsuit

0410stormtrooper.jpg

Interesting, fun piece to end this writer’s day upon, before you are shifted over into Stephanie’s capable hands. Out of the UK comes the story of the suit and counter-suit between design Andrew Ainsworth and filmmaker George Lucas and his production company. The battle is over Ainsworth, who created the famous Stormtrooper costumes in 1976 for Lucas’ Star Wars and his insistence that he should still be able to build and sell replicas of the outfits he designed, as he made the original molds and still has them in his possession. Lucas and his galactic attorney power team say otherwise. And after suing Ainsworth into oblivion in the US back in 2006, they’re now trying to do it in the UK as well, as the designer is still selling his wares in that country.
