Gentle Giant has revealed another incredibly cool mini bust featuring the Luke Skywalker concept design created by legendary Star Wars artist Ralph McQuarrie. I've always loved this design, and as much as I like Luke Skywalker, he would have been so much more badass if he looked like this. The bust will be available at San Diego Comic-Con, and here's a description from Star Wars.com:
Gentle Giant has a slate of new Star Wars products coming to San Diego Comic-Con (July 24-27), and StarWars.com is excited to reveal one item with an especially historic significance: the Ralph McQuarrie-style Luke Skywalker mini bust. Depicting the hero as he appeared in McQuarrie’s original concept art forStar Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, this mini bust shows a very different-looking Luke, but with details that would inform his final design and the designs of other characters. As a collectible, it offers a special glimpse into the visual evolution of Star Wars. It is digitally sculpted, cold cast in high quality polystone and hand-painted, and is individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. The mini bust measures 6.5″ x 7.25″ x 5″, and will be available for $85.00; check out a full preview in the gallery below!
