Pay homage to one of the most iconic Movie Sagas of all time, Star Wars with this Limited Edition, massive 1/5 scale Tusken Raider vintage Statue, originally conceived and imported from France. This amazingly detailed 15.3” statue is beautifully textured and portrays the menacing Tusken Raider leader who attacks a terrified Luke Skywalker with his gaffii stick as seen in the classic first Star Wars movie in 1977. This statue is a limited edition of 1,500 pieces ever produced worldwide, long sold-out. It is based upon state-of-the-art three-dimensional scans of the actor, costume, and prop as well as original uniform and models from the Lucasfilm Archives, combined with traditional high end sculpting and painting, to develop the impeccable detail that this statue features. The result is a fantastic realism.
Tusken Raiders, less formally referred to as Sand People or simply as Tuskens, were a culture of nomadic, primitive sentients indigenous to Tatooine, where they were often hostile to local settlers. In 22 BBY, a month before the Battle of Geonosis, Sand People attacked the Lars moisture farm and kidnapped Shmi Skywalker Lars, whom they imprisoned and tortured. Her son, the Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker, returned to Tatooine to rescue her, but after finding her in a Tusken camp, she died of her injuries. The vengeful Anakin proceeded to slaughter every nearby Tusken. Following the massacre, the Tuskens began to fear Skywalker as a vengeful desert demon, and began performing ritual sacrifices to ward him off. In 2 BBY, while searching for Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ezra Bridger and C1-10P were ambushed by a group of Tusken Raiders, who succeeded in destroying their ship before being killed by the former Sith apprentice Darth Maul.
Two years later, Anakin's son Luke was attacked by A'Koba and a group of Tuskens after venturing from the homestead to retrieve R2-D2. Fortunately, Obi-Wan Kenobi warded off the Tuskens by imitating the cry of a krayt dragon, Tatooine's deadliest predator. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Darth Vader slaughtered a village of Tuskens prior to his meeting with bounty hunters Boba Fett and Black Krrsantan. Following the attack, the Tuskens then built a shrine to Vader, in order to sacrifice some of themselves to ensure that he would not return.
