1899 Max Rebo Mini Bust- $75

Item Number:  80206
UPC:  8-71810-00971-8
Dimensions:  5”x 6” x 4 ½ “
Release Date: Q2 2013

Leader of the legendary (and eponymous) Max Rebo band, this Ortolan musician was born Siiruulian Phantele. After working as a musician in a flanth house for years, young Siiruulian was finally given his big break by an ambitious talent agent. Joined by Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool,  the Max Rebo Band was born! Little did they know that their first contract would include lifelong indentured service to the nefarious gangster, Jabba the Hutt. Oops. Only when Jabba was killed by Princess Leia Organa were the members of the band free to tour the galaxy again.

Now you can confine the band to your own palace as well! The Max Rebo Mini Bust features the famous musician seated in his signature Red Ball Organ. Digitally sculpted and hand painted, this limited edition mini bust comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. 



Pilot Battle Droid Mini Bust - $75

UPC: 8-71810-00972-5

The OOM pilot battle droid was an OOM-series battle droid in the Trade Federation Droid Army and, later, the Separatist Droid Army for the purpose of piloting vehicles of various kinds. Differentiated from its B-1 Battle Droid or OOM Security Droid brethren by its blue markings, these droids lack the combat programming of the other models, but make up for it by their expansive database of craft they know how to operate.

Hand-crafted by the artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., this incredibly detailed mini bust has been cold cast in high quality polystone, painted by hand and includes a built-in sound chip in the base. The limited edition Pilot Droid Mini Bust comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.

One of the largest statues we’ve ever made, this new piece celebrates the return of one of the Prequel Trilogy’s most iconic characters – Darth Maul. After surviving his bisection at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul managed to find his way to the junk planet of Lotho Minor. There, he slowly succumbs to insanity while assembling a terrifying chassis designed to resemble spider legs from scrap metal. It is almost a decade before his brother, Savage Oppress, finds him and reintroduces his evil to the Galaxy…

Boasting an unmatched level of detail, this limited edition hand-painted statue is a must-have for any serious Star Wars fan or collector. Hand-crafted using only the highest quality polystone and individually numbered, this piece comes with a matching certificate of authenticity. Embrace the Dark Side.
