Bib Fortuna™ Concept Maquette Replica – Phil Tippett Legacy Edition

$699.00

Available

This very special Bib Fortuna™ Concept Maquette Replica – Phil Tippett Legacy Edition goes beyond a signature edition to provide each owner with a truly unique work-of-art. It’s part of our Star Wars™ Archive Collection, a continuation and expansion of our work creating authentic replicas with impeccable lineage. 

Limited to just 83 pieces, each hand-painted maquette in this special Legacy Edition will include a premium expanded plaque including a one-of- a-kind sketch, each one dreamed-up and hand-drawn by legendary creature creator Phil Tippett!

The included 3 5/8” wide sketch comes beautifully matted within an 5”x7” frame that also houses a hand-numbered metal nameplate, hand-signed by Tippett. That frame can either stand on a table top or hang on a wall. 

This maquette was the first step in designing the classic Bib Fortuna character. With hands-on access to the original film artifact and high resolution 3D scanning, our team crafted a faithful recreation of the concept maquette for this fan-favorite from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™. 

At approximately 8 5/8” tall (including the wood display base), each is cast in solid heavy resin. 100% made in the U.S.A., every replica in this edition is meticulously hand painted by the artists in our New York studio, making each a unique tribute to the artistry involved behind the scenes of our favorite films! The maquettes are hand packed in a gloss black box with die-cut foam insert and COA, and double-boxed for shipping.

Do not miss this extraordinary opportunity to bring home not just an authentic replica, scanned from the original artifact, but also an original work of art with a direct connection to the artists that inspire us!

The Archive Collection - Recreating an Artifact

“When Star Wars: Return of the Jedi debuted, fans got their first glimpse of Bib Fortuna in the shadowed entryway of the palace of Jabba the Hutt™ but it was the classic, behind-the-scenes documentaries that showcased the work of Phil Tippett’s creature shop during the production of that 1983 film that were a big part of what led me to a life in the world of FX and movie monsters.

We’ve been so fortunate to work with Phil on many sold-out editions in the past and we’re thrilled that he created 83 completely unique drawings for this Bib Fortuna replica so that every collector that brings one of this edition into their homes has something absolutely original and extraordinary. 

We’re all so proud of this special Legacy Edition, and I can’t wait to see it in the collections of discerning prop and statue fans and Star Wars collectors!”

– Tom Spina (Regal Robot founder)

During the production of films, the creature effects team will often dream up new and fantastic aliens and beasts by creating small scaled sculptures, called “maquettes,” to showcase their ideas. From this menagerie of maquettes, the film’s director and producer choose which characters will be brought to life for the film as costumes or puppets and what roles they will play in the story.

Sculpted by creature shop head, Phil Tippett, this incredible design was chosen to become Bib Fortuna, Jabba the Hutt’s major domo. 

We are excited to share this new Archive Collection and look forward to sharing our latest art and characters with you. Be sure to follow @RegalRobot on social media to keep up with all of the new collectibles we have in the works.
