Weequay™ Concept Maquette Replica – Signature & Numbered Editions
$449.00 – $499.00
DON’T DELAY – THE SIGNATURE EDITION IS NEARLY SOLD OUT!
This Weequay™ maquette is part of our Star Wars™ Archive Collection, a continuation and expansion of our work creating authentic replicas with impeccable lineage.
With hands-on access to the original film artifact and high resolution 3D scanning, our team crafted a faithful recreation of the Ken Ralston-sculpted concept maquette for this stoic and mysterious alien character from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™, known as “Queequeg” during production.
Each approximately 7″ tall (including the wood display base) bust is cast in heavy polyurethane resin. 100% made in the U.S.A.. Every replica in this edition is meticulously hand painted, with hand-applied hair, making each a unique tribute to the artistry involved behind the scenes of our favorite films!
Each statue in these limited editions includes a hand-numbered metal plaque and is hand packed in a gloss black box with die-cut foam insert and COA. The plaques for the signature edition were hand-signed by the original sculptor, Ken Ralston.

The Archive Collection - Recreating an Artifact
“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve marveled at the incredible concept sculptures which were part of the process in creating the creatures for Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Watching early making-of specials, it was always a treat to catch a glimpse at the early designs and see how those translated to full scale. It’s been very exciting here to handle the original artifacts and develop this line of maquettes that pays tribute to that artistry involved in creating some of our favorite characters!” – 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.
This particular design was chosen to become Weequay, skiff guard for the Tatooine™ fleet of Jabba the Hutt™. Though his credited role was Visual Effects on the film, Ken also crafted a number of maquettes for the creature shop headed by Phil Tippett. The character was brought to life on screen as a full scale rubber mask worn in the desert scenes of the Sail Barge battle at the Pit of Carkoon™.
