Regal Robot, the company behind authentic Star Wars replicas and props, has announced a new entry to their impressive Concept Maquette line: Grogu.
Regal Robot has even more awesomeness coming for Star Wars fans/collectors. Today, they’ve announced the latest edition to their Archive Collection line (which includes a number of impressive prop replicas), and The Mandalorian fans need to get their wallets ready. They’ll be bringing their hand-painted, meticulously detailed, skills to deliver a new Concept Maquette, featuring none other than Grogu himself.
Appropriately, pre-orders for the limited edition statue will go live on March 1st (the same day The Mandalorian season three premieres) at 12PM EST.
Lovingly referred to by audiences as ‘Baby Yoda’, the mysterious alien originally known as The Child and eventually revealed to be named, Grogu™, has quickly become the fan-favorite character from the hit series, The Mandalorian™.
The first steps in creating that character included both 2D concept art by Lucasfilm Concept Design Supervisor, Christian Alzmann, and a beautiful hand-sculpted maquette by legendary FX artist and sculptor, Tony McVey, whose work Star Wars fans know from The Mandalorian and films like Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™ and more!
We feel very fortunate to have those two amazing artists from the show’s production as a part of this very special limited edition and every statue in this edition includes a hand-numbered metal plaque with original signatures by Alzmann and McVey and a 2D print of the original concept art for the character.
Our Grogu concept maquette was mastered with McVey, from the original molds, giving it outstanding lineage and a direct connection to the production artifact and show.
Each approximately 7.5″ tall (including the wood display base) by 8.25” wide (ear tip to ear tip) maquette is cast in heavy polyurethane resin. They’re hand packed in a gloss black box with die-cut foam insert and COA.
