A Captain V.J. Dax (Richard Burgi) statue miniature from Phil Tippett's sci-fi action sequel Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation. After sacrificing his life fighting the Arachnids, Dax became a symbol of bravery and heroism used by the Federation as propaganda to recruit even more soldiers, including during a video presentation featuring a statue of the Captain. This lot comes from the collection of the film's co-producer and director, Phil Tippett, whose company, Tippett Studios, did visual effects for the film.
This highly-detailed resin statue is painted in shades of gray and black with a pale green layer loosely brushed over it to simulate patination. It is attached to a round wooden base with the same paint scheme. On the base is a sculptor credit "Cyrus Tilton '03, Scientific Art Studio". It is in excellent overall condition with minimal wear from production and age, including a bit of paint chipping. Includes a letter of authenticity from Phil Tippett.
