A Death Star Gun Tower model miniature from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Gun towers covered the Death Star's surface and constantly fired at the attacking Rebel pilots during the film's climax.
Constructed by Industrial Light and Magic from biscuit foam and resin, the grey painted gun tower features a futuristic industrial design with grid lines carved into the sides to simulate a panelled construction. While static, the top portion of the gun tower is shaped to resemble a rotating gun turret and has two laser cannons mounted at the top. Below the turret, the body of the gun tower stretches to a wider base for stability. The model remains in good overall condition, with light wear and damage to the gun tips. Dimensions: 7 cm x 6 cm x 19 cm (2¾" x 2¼" x 7½")
Estimate: £10,000 - 15,000 M
Item size - 7.48" x 2.36" x 2.76" (19cm x 6cm x 7cm)
