A stunt pit droid head from George Lucas' Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Diminutive but powerful pit droids squabbled amongst themselves and helped repair broken-down podracers.
This head, built by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) for background and stunt use, is constructed of fibreglass painted brown with two antennae, intentional silver-colour dents, and a reflective black resin eye wrapped with leatherette. It comes mounted to a display base painted in a matching colour. The head is in good overall condition with some glue residue and bent leatherette from production. Dimensions: 37 cm x 37 cm x 15.5 cm (14 1/2" x 14 1/2" x 6")
Estimate: £5,000 - 7,000 Ω
