Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Hard-core Star Wars fans couldn't have cared less about Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards, because actor Peter Mayhew spent several hours tweeting another stockpile of unseen set photos from the original films.

Mayhew, who played Chewbacca in the original trilogy, started sharing never-before-seen photos from the films last week. Each photo is accompanied by a juicy and clever tidbit from the set of George Lucas' famed space saga.

The amazing treasure trove includes photos of Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford dancing on a ramp, Sir Alec Guinness celebrating his birthday on set in Tunisia and Yoda having his make up done.

Head over to Mayhew's Twitter feed for more. He says he still has "about 1200 pics in the archive."
