Marc Thorpe was an ILM Model Maker for movies like The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and the Indiana Jones Trilogy.

We go through a quick deep dive of his career, including his work on LucasToys and the creation of Robot Wars. He was a true delight to talk to and such a gracious teller of stories and experiences.

I really enjoyed my conversation with him, especially learning what exactly an “Ewok Wrangler” is.
