Details:

  • Replica of the medal given at Yavin from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

  • Constructed of solid, die-cast metal and plated in 18k gold with a rich matte finish.

  • Suspended from an olive-green ceremonial ribbon like the ones used for a military medal of honor.

  • Presented in a black lacquered, jewelry-style box handsomely accented with the Rebel insignia on top.

  • Displayed on a cushion of luxurious textured material inside the presentation box. The inner panel of the presentation box can be propped inside the top of the box to form a striking A-frame display.

  • Carefully recreated from original archival materials and fully authorized and endorsed by Lucasfilm Ltd.

  • Comments: In the unforgettable last scene of Star Wars: A New Hope, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, heroes of the Rebellion, approach the platform where Princess Leia Organa stands amidst various generals and dignitaries, awaiting the heroes’ arrival. For their unswerving bravery and ingenuity in destroying the Death Star, the Princess bestows upon them the highest honor awarded by the Rebel Alliance, the Medal of Yavin. Though unnamed in the film, the medal symbolizes the highest gratitude that the Rebellion’s leadership can grant.

    Photo Notes: This set of photos is of the prototype. As such, you might note the plaque was just a placeholder Vader AP plaque. The outer box had an interesting flip-open end which might or might not make it into the produced versions. It was designed to make it easy to get the medal display box out of the outer box. The ribbon looks more brown than green to me so it's still open what the final color will be. Or, I could just have lights here that make it look more brown than green. -Philip

Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
