He will protect the child with his life. The real Luke Skywalker finally returned to screen with the second season finale of The Mandalorian. Now that perfect moment is captured forever, thanks to the artisans at Iron Studios.
Figures.com broke the news that Iron Studios will be producing a 1/4 scale statue based on this jaw-dropping scene. As a fan of the original Star Wars trilogy, it was heartwarming to see the heroic Luke Skywalker show up in the nick of time to save the day.
The statue will feature Luke, Grogu, and R2-D2. The scale is impressive, measuring at 21″x16″x12″. Not only is this thing highly detailed and huge, but there’s also some functionality built-in as well. While there are no lightsaber effects, R2-D2 does come with lights and sound.
Check out the images below for more detail.
This one-quarter scale statue will cost $1299.99 and should be available for all of us Star Wars fans during the second quarter of 2022. We checked Iron Studios’ website, but the statue isn’t showing up there yet for pre-order.
Like most of Iron Studios’ other statues, Luke and the gang are made from polystone. No, that’s not a type of sexuality. It is a type of resin. Here’s a full rundown of what the material is from Movie Replicas Direct:
Polystone is a compound made up largely of polyurethane resin mixed with powdered stone additives to give a stone-like finish. Polystone has a stone like feel, but is much easier to sculpt. It is more cost effective and less heavy than traditional stone media. Polystone is a manufacturing medium used for cast sculptures, it is hard to find one that delivers a cleaner, more substantial representation of an original sculpture than a product manufactured in Polystone. Polystone has a significant weight, a porcelain like feel to the touch, and an incredible ability to capture the most minute detail, making it unsurpassed in collectible manufacturing materials. Polystone does not have to be fired like porcelain, which gives it much more flexibility in painting variations.
Judging by the previous statues released by Iron Studios, the stuff looks great. It certainly has a better texture than the typical resin statues we’ve seen elsewhere.
