Darth Vader and Son Maquette Box Set with Exclusive Special Edition Darth Vader and Son Book

Being a huge Star Wars fan, we are always after those Star Wars figures from Hasbro, statues from Sideshow Collectibles, and mini busts and Jumbo Vintage Kenner figures from Gentle Giant. Every now and then though, a company will create something that becomes the most desirable piece that any Star Wars collector would want or need. Gentle Giant has teamed up a few times now to create amazing Star Wars pieces as in their Admiral Ackbar "Magnitude" Mini Bust and Death Trooper Mini Bust. Gentle Giant has just created another piece for Star Wars fans and they teamed up with Chronicle Books to show the world why the Star Wars Universe is so special to us.   

Gentle Giant Ltd. and Chronicle Books are proud to bring this hilarious and sweet comic to life! The artisans at Gentle Giant Studios have captured this hilarious and sweet comic as re-imagining, Darth Vader as a dad like any other-except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Traditionally sculpted by the Artisans at Gentle Giant Studios, no detail has been overlooked.  A Rebel logo pattern was even added to the tie detail! Based on Jeffrey  Brown’s Darth Vader and Son Book; this had-numbered cold-cast Polystone collectible has a bottom stamp with a matching certificate of authenticity.

Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown's delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars® moments a fresh twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include lightsaber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star ("Er, he looks just like you, Lord Vader!"), and the special bond shared between any father and son.

Limited Edition, hand-numbered collectible maquette. Comes with an exclusive edition of Darth Vader and Son book.

• 16-page signature with the original black & white concept sketches from Jeffrey Brown! These sketches have not been released to the public until now, and are exclusive to this boxed set.

• A new full color illustration from Jeffrey Brown printed on board and packaged in a vellum sleeve.

• The book cover and spine will be printed with color foil stamps and spot gloss varnish.

Jeffrey Brown is the author of numerous graphic novels and comics, including Cat Getting Out of a Bag and Cats Are Weird. A lifelong Star Wars fan, he lives in Chicago with his wife and five- year-old son.

Darth Vader and Son Maquette Box Set is now available for Pre-order at Gentle Giant for $149.99. As popular as Jeffrey Brown's book is and how much Gentle Giant has brought it to life in the statue, this will definitely sell out very quickly.
