KING CRAB, designed by Bill Wray, of Ren & Stimpy and Samurai Jack fame, and sculpted by Jason Peltz, Disney maquette sculptor and animator. Based upon model sheets of the animated pilot, this extremely limited edition sculpture stands 4.5 inches tall, and is limited to 500 pieces.

Includes a numbered certificate, signed by both artists. In celebration of 30 years of Star Wars, a very limited number of figures have been repainted in colors inspired by the X-wing pilots jumpsuits.

Check out for more information and availability.

UPDATE: Since several readers have requested more info on this unique piece, here is an update:

Each sculpture of King Crab in X-Wing Pilot suit is hand-painted and the price is $40, plus $6 shipping. Interested buyers can contact and place an order.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
