Preview Deluxe Maquette: "Darth Vader and Son" & "Vader's Little Princess" by Gentle Giant

How cute is this?

Based on the "Darth Vader and Son" book by cartoonist Jeffrey Brown, this adorable maquette shows a scene from an alternate "Star Wars" in which the Dark Lord of the Sith is an active father, with li'l Luke very proudly presenting Dad Vader with a Rebel Alliance-pattern tie! Awkward... This charming display stands about 23.5cm tall, and a base is included. It's the perfect gift for anyone who grew up with "Star Wars," and who's maybe even helping someone else grow up with it too!


Gentle Giant has partnered with Chronicle Books to put together something pretty special just in time for Father’s Day. The artisans at Gentle Giant Studios have captured this hilarious and sweet comic as re-imagining, Darth Vader as a dad like any other-except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Traditionally sculpted by the Artisans at Gentle Giant Studios, no detail has been overlooked.



Based on the "Vader's Little Princess" book by cartoonist Jeffrey Brown, this adorable maquette shows a scene from an alternate "Star Wars" in which the Dark Lord of the Sith is an active father with a handful of a daughter! Looks like li'l Leia's found the perfect material to practice cutting out Valentine hearts...! This delightful display stands about 23.5cm tall, and a base is included. This would be the perfect gift for anyone who grew up with "Star Wars," and who's maybe introducing it to a new generation of fans!


Each maquette is a numbered cold-cast Polystone collectible featuring a bottom stamp with a matching certificate of authenticity. Comes with an exclusive edition of Darth Vader and Son book or Darth Vader’s Little Princess book


16-page signature with the original black & white concept sketches from Jeffrey Brown! These sketches have not been released to the public until now, and are exclusive to each boxed set.
