In my office you’ll find such things as a life-size cut-out of R2-D2 and C-3PO, along with an autographed picture of myself with Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), however, I’ve been wanting something a little more three-dimensional. I think that this bronze Darth Vader statue would do nicely
This 4-foot bronze tribute to the Dark Lord of the Sith was crafted by Lawrence Noble from Vader’s appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. His motivation was to make a statue that one might see on the planet Coruscant. There are a few issues that you’re going to run into if you get your heart set on this piece. First, it weighs 150lbs, so it’s not going to be easy to move. Second, quantities are limited to 30 pieces, so it’s going to be tough to get ahold of. Then there’s that minor issue of the $18,000 price tag.
