Premier Guild Members have to opportunity to now pre-order the Admiral Motti Mini Bust, which is limited to only 1200. Not only is Admiral Motti a great mini bust to have, but the COA is also autographed by actor, Richard LeParmentier.
Admiral Motti was head of the Imperial Naval operations aboard the Death Star. Motti was overly-confident in his belief that the Death Star was invulnerable to any threat posed by the Rebel Alliance. He was even arrogant enough to openly question Darth Vader for his failure to locate a secret Rebel base. For this, Vader Force-choked Motti, only to have Grand Moff Tarkin intervene at the last moment, ordering the Dark Lord to relent. This highly-detailed mini bust, based on the original Lucasfilm costumes and props, was sculpted and painted by Gentle Giant Ltd.
