From an illuminated Dagobah garden to an exploded Darth Vader mask, from a Fabergé-style egg to a dianoga’s lair, and from R2-D2 to Scarif’s Citadel Tower from Star Wars: Rogue One
, artists have turned thirty 10-inch high resin replicas of the Death Star
into ingenious and in some cases automated works of art in a fundraiser for Rancho Obi-Wan
The auction is being run by Prop Store
, the well-known London and Los Angeles based seller of pop culture memorabilia. The online sale runs from February 10th to 21st, 2020 and will support Rancho’s mission of using its collection to inspire others to be imaginative, creative, learn new crafts and gain knowledge.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the Death Star replicas that Star Wars artists and fans have contributed to our auction following in the tradition of artists’ reworking of Darth Vader, Stormtrooper and other helmets,” says Steve Sansweet, head of Rancho Obi-Wan. “We also want to thank our friends at Prop Store for donating their time and bandwidth to run the auction.”
