A must for any Star Wars fan! From the Gentle Giant website:
Six months before Star Wars was released in the summer of 1977, the paperback novel was released to a public that had not yet been introduced to the iconic Sith Lord, Darth Vader. On the cover of the novel was the Dark Lord's portrait by Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. McQuarrie's design was markedly different from that of 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 a distinctive glare. This solid bronze bust is strictly limited to only 100 pieces worldwide. Weighs approximately 8-10lbs. and measures 8" (20.32cm) tall.
This is #27 of a limited production run of 100. We will only have this one piece in stock.
A fitting tribute to the life and works of Mr. McQuarrie, who passed away on March 3, 2012.
