When was the last time you heard the story of Star Wars?  Now a days, not so much.  But a long time ago, before the home video revolution, records were our way of reliving the Star Wars saga. 

Today on GeekFest Rants Carlos breaks out the turntable (google it kids) to go over all the different kinds of record versions of the Star Wars story.  Plus we'll look at the most modern entries into this medium. 

Then we will profile the fantastic contributions made by Colin Cantwell into the creation of Star Wars.  From his conceptual art to his kit bashed models. 

Alongside with Ralph McQuarrie, Cantwell is yet another creative, inspirational giant behind the final look of the Star Wars universe.
