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. Seeing Phil Tippett working on the rancor scenes helped shape me as an artists and drove me into special FX and sculpting. I’m so proud that we’re now able to offer a detailed and faithful replica of this amazing maquette!” – 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 chosen to become the beast in the pit below the palace of Jabba the Hutt™. Creature shop head, Phil Tippett, sculpted both the maquette and puppet that brought this character to life.

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.
