Recreating an Artifact
“When it comes to Star Wars, inspiration can always be found in the details. The depth of the development of that galaxy far, far away rewards fans with such a wonderfully diverse set of characters, aliens and droids. To me, sometimes the obscure characters can be the most intriguing! CZ-3 captured my imagination as a child and quickly became one of my favorite droid designs. We first glimpsed this droid in the Jawa™ Sandcrawler™ (and eventually in the palace of Jabba the Hutt™) but we get our best look at this character as he shambled down the Mos Eisley™ streets. While most fans look at our heroes making a landspeeder™ sale, I stared at that droid and all the layers of weathering and giant drips of grease that implied a backstory we’d yet to hear.
As a fan of the making of our favorite films, I feel very fortunate that we had the chance to get hands-on and up-close with that original prop costume in our work to bring this replica to life. Our team spent hours examining, photographing and measuring the droid costume worn in the original trilogy and used high-detail laser scanning to capture every detail of the suit. Using that scan, we have faithfully reproduced the wonderfully organic asymmetry in the costume’s mask, originally sculpted by legendary film sculptor Brian Muir, and a bit of the bib area and collar to help turn this into a great overall character display. We went through great lengths to maintain the integrity of the scan and vintage details to create the ultimate replica of this droid. Gordon Tarpley handled that digital task beautifully and I personally distressed the paint masters for these editions. Our New York team is now prepping to produce this super limited run and hand paint each piece, capturing that classic Star Wars look and feel with layers of aging and weathering.
I’m thrilled that Mr. Muir has graciously agreed to sign the plaques for our Signature Edition of this replica bust! Muir’s work on countless films, creating sculptures large and small, is an inspiration to fans, collectors and makers everywhere. In addition to CZ-3, Muir had a literal hand in the realization of iconic and enduring characters such as Darth Vader™, RA-7™ (aka Death Star Droid™), the armor worn by the Imperial Stormtroopers™ and even played a part in developing C-3PO™. We’re honored to have him on board and a part of this edition!
Thank you for taking a few moments to read this and for your interest in what we do here at Regal Robot. We’re proud to present this faithful 1:1 replica CZ-3 droid bust and are looking forward to seeing it in the hands and homes of discerning Star Wars collectors!”
