Available for only 7 days, with the order window closing on May 28th at Noon EST, each hand-painted maquette in this Signature Edition includes a metal plaque hand-signed by legendary ILM sculptor, Tony McVey. 

McVey was part of the team that did concept work for the ILM creature shop on Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™. As part of his prequel work, he sculpted this concept for the Jar Jar Binks character.

McVey was part of the team that did concept work for the ILM creature shop on Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™, the prequel films and beyond. As part of that work, he sculpted several concepts for the Jar Jar Binks character. Tony’s also known for his work on Salacious Crumb™ and sculpting the first physical version of Grogu™ for The Mandalorian™.

This maquette was the first step in designing what would be an unprecedented and memorable digital 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 iconic alien from the movie.  

At approximately 7” tall (including the wood display base), each is cast in solid polyurethane 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! 

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

Each statue in this signature edition includes a metal plaque and COA. Each is hand packed in a gloss black box with die-cut foam insert, and double-boxed for shipping.

We’ve been so fortunate to work with Tony on our sold-out Salacious Crumb Replica and currently available Grogu Concept Maquette Signature Edition and are thrilled to have him back for this Jar Jar Binks Signature Edition! 

I can’t wait to see these maquette replicas 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.

This incredible design was one of the early concepts for the character that would become the truly one-of-a-kind Jar Jar Binks!

We are excited to share this new entry in our expanding Archive Collection and look forward to sharing our latest art and characters with you.
