LOS ANGELES — The iconic anti-gravity Landspeeder prop from Axel Braun's "Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody," along with a sexy female Sand Trooper and Sand Person, has landed at The Erotic Heritage Museum (EHM) in Las Vegas.

The exhibit is on loan from Braun and open to the public. A  special celebration for the display will be held on September 1 commemorating EHM's 4th anniversary.

"This epic parody was a landmark movie for the adult industry and we wanted the museum to have a great display from it," Steven Hirsch, Vivid Entertainment founder/co-chairman said.

He added, "We incorporated an incredible array of special effects into this movie and it was by far the most expensive and elaborate production we've done. Fan response from the movie has been terrific, and this exhibit will provide yet another dimension for them to enjoy our parody."

Braun had a production design team led by performer Kylie Ireland and her husband Andy Appleton build the realistic prop entirely by hand. Weighing at over 450 pounds, the Landspeeder was used in the parody's sex scene with Tom Byron as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jennifer Dark as a Tusken Raider.

"Our spoof of what many regard as the greatest sci-fi movie of all time mimics the original," Braun said. "We've poked fun at it and added the sex scenes that adult movie fans have imagined for years. We wanted the adult entertainment fan to have nothing short of a geek-gasmic fanboy wet dream. We think that visitors to this exhibit will get a little sample of the excitement that the movie has created."

Veteran adult performer and filmmaker Veronica Hart, EHM's director of New Media added, "Seldom do you have such an incredibly visual exhibit that bridges an iconic moment from the past with the most lavish state-of-the-art present adult industry. Thanks to Axel Braun Productions, Vivid Entertainment, and the creative team of Kylie Ireland and Andy Appleton for this amazing exhibit."

The 17,000 square foot EHM was founded by Rev. Ted McIlvenna and Harry Mohney in 2008 as a permanent venue to preserve human sexuality. Visitors have described the museum as "graphic, sexy, explicit, classy entertainment, educational and definitely for the open minded."

The museum is open from 11a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Tuesday-Thursday, and from 12 p.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It is closed on Mondays.
