Darth Vader McQuarrie bronze mini bust

Six months before Star Wars was released in the summer of 1977, the paperback novel for the film was released and the public who had not yet been introduced to the iconic Sith Lord, Darth Vader. On that paperback's cover was a portrait of the Dark Lord by Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, whose design was markedly different than the Vader seen on screen. This limited edition bronze by Gentle Giant Studios commemorates McQuarrie's original vision for Darth Vader, distinguished by cleaner lines and distinctive glare. This Darth Vader McQuarrie bronze mini bust is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide. Weighs approximately 8-10 lbs. Measures 8" tall.
