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

  • 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

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
