A large-size Death Star II tower and turret model from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Much like its predecessor, the second Death Star's surface was similarly lined with powerful gun turrets.
Crafted by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) from biscuit foam and resin, the gun tower is painted gray with grid lines scribed into the sides to simulate a paneled construction. While static, the top portion of the gun tower is shaped to resemble a rotating gun turret and has two detailed resin laser cannons mounted at the top. This is one of the largest scales of cannon miniatures, measuring 15 inches tall. It is in good overall condition with some wear from production and age, including paint chipping, most notably around the top section. Dimensions: 8" x 6" x 15" (20.5 cm x 15.5 cm x 38.5 cm)
Estimate: $15,000 - 20,000
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
