This big-brother to their popular Max Rebo Concept Maquette Replica was even includes a signature edition with multi-Oscar award winning VFX Supervisor, Ken Ralston, who sculpted concept maquette for this stoic and mysterious alien character from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™.
Regal Robot team had hands-on access to that original maquette (called “Queequeg” during production), allowing them to craft the most faithful replica possible. Each approximately 7″ tall (including the wood display base) bust is cast in heavy polyurethane resin. 100% made in the U.S.A., every replica in this edition is meticulously hand painted, with hand-applied hair, making each a unique tribute to the artistry involved behind the scenes of our favorite films!
Available in two extremely limited editions, each replica includes a hand-numbered plaque. A 250 piece numbered edition will be made, and just 100 pieces of the Kan Ralston signature edition will be produced.
Ken Ralston is a multi-Oscar winning Visual Effects Supervisor who worked on a many of our favorite movies, including: The Star Wars OT, the Back to the Future trilogy, The Rocketeer, Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump, MIB, Death Becomes Her and so many more.
