A brass piece of the Death Star II reactor tunnel model miniature from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The second Death Star was under construction in the film and etched brass pieces were therefore used to give it a unique, unfinished appearance. The reactor tunnel featured heavily when the Millennium Falcon and other ships attacked the Death Star's core reactor.
This piece, created by Industrial Light & Magic's (ILM) model makers from multiple pieces of assembled etched brass, features paintwork and intricate detailing. It exhibits some bent metal and glue residue, but remains in good overall condition. Dimensions: 9 1/2" x 2" x 1" (24.25 cm x 5 cm x 2.5 cm)
Estimate: $2,500 - 3,500
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
