These will only be available to order from May 4th, 2021 through June 18th, 2021, at which point the editions will be closed and capped."

Prices are not known just yet, but fans will be able to get their here on May the 4th at 12 PM.

"We're excited to share a first look at our amazing prop replicas that will be available on May the 4th! The hand-painted, static resin replicas in our Dejarik™ sets are 1:1 scale to the actual puppets used in filming the stop-motion chess sequences in the Star Wars™ Saga and with lineage to those original puppets! Our replicas were prototyped using the digital files that Phil Tippett's team created in 2015, when they used 3D scanning and photogrammetry of original props used in Star Wars: A New Hope™ to accurately recreate the wildly imaginative creatures he and Jon Berg hand-sculpted in 1977."
