A piece of the Death Star II model miniature's surface from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Pieces of the under-construction second Death Star's large filming model were used throughout the film, including in the epic finale when a Super Star Destroyer collided with the Death Star.
This piece, created by Industrial Light & Magic's (ILM) model makers, is constructed of highly detailed biscuit foam painted gray with silvertone, red, and charcoal-color details. A large chunk has snapped off one corner of this piece, but it remains in good overall condition. Dimensions: 9 1/2" x 4" x 1" (24.25 cm x 10.25 cm x 2.5 cm)
Estimate: $3,000 - 5,000
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
