1000 piece edition
(exclusive to Comic-Con and Star Wars Celebration 6)

An old-time traditional animator’s term, a “Key” is a thumbnail of a character or a background element with color reference.

Acme’s Character Keys are composed of a cel layer floated over a lithographic background.

The cel features a color rendition of the character while the background features sketches and color reference.

Each character key comes matted with a title tag and a certificate of authenticity.

Matted measurements are 8 inches by 6 inches.

1000 piece edition
(will be available at Comic-Con and our website beginning July 11th)

This sketchplate features original Joe Johnston sketches of the Zoom II Speeder Bike photo-etched on aircraft-grade aluminum.

The sketchplate gives insight into the development of iconic Lucasfilm creations as well as providing historic details.

The full piece measures approximately 8 inches by 5 inches.

The sketchplate itself measures 7 inches by 3.35 inches and is mounted on a foam core spacer to “float” on the black acrylic backer.
