A MakerBot representative told me that LucasArts had not yet been by with an IP complaint about the plans for this model, which live on MakerBot's Thingiverse Web site. MakerBot adheres to an IP policy similar to that of YouTube. It'll remove a plan once a license holder complains. Apparently it's happened at least a few times already.
