A 6" x 6" Death Star surface model miniature piece from George Lucas' Star Wars film trilogy. Interlocking pieces of the original Death Star's large filming model were used throughout the film, including in the epic finale when the Rebel Alliance attacked the Empire from their base on Yavin.
This highly detailed biscuit foam Death Star surface piece is painted gray and constructed by Industrial Light & Magic's (ILM) model makers for the production of A New Hope. The lot exhibits some dustiness from storage and minor chips to the foam, but remains in good overall condition.

(photos, each): 4" x 6" (10.25 cm x 15.25 cm)
Estimate: $4,000 - 6,000
