NOW AVAILABLE! – Archive Collection – Tauntaun™ Concept Maquettes Set

Nov 29th 2022

ORDER TODAY – Tauntaun Busts Concept Maquettes  Signature Edition!

Limited to just 100 sets, this signature edition set of four Tauntaun™ bust maquettes is part of our Star Wars™ Archive Collection, a continuation and expansion of our work creating authentic replicas with impeccable lineage.

These incredibly unique creature sculptures were discovered among the original maquettes from the original trilogy film artifacts. With hands-on access to the original film artifacts and high resolution 3D scanning, our team crafted these faithful recreations of the Phil Tippett concept sculptures used in the process of bringing the Tauntaun beasts to life for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™.

This set gives a glimpse into “what could’ve been” showing early ideas of what the Tauntaun may have looked like. Several of the wildly unique designs even include asymmetry, showing two different possible looks within a single sculpt.

Each of these 100 sets comes with an elegant plaque, hand-signed by legendary FX artist, Phil Tippett.

The bust sizes range from 5″ to 6″ tall, including the wood display base. Each is cast in heavy polyurethane resin. 100% made in the U.S.A., every replica in this edition is hand painted with staining to accent the beautiful sculptural details, making each a unique tribute to the artistry involved behind the scenes of our favorite films!

See more pics and details in on our Custom Character Studio page.
