Sometimes it’s fun to look at the original sculpts of some of your favorite Star Wars collectibles.  It gives you an idea of what goes into making these things that we as collectors hold dear.  Recently the sculptor of the Gentle Giant Maz Kanata Bust, Keith Kopinski, released his digital sculpt photos for the piece.

As you can see in the gallery below, he also included the Premium Guild version with Maz holding Anakin’s lightsaber.  Gentle Giant gave Keith 3 weeks to go from concept to fully detailed original sculpt, and as always Kopinski finished up a few days before the deadline.

So take a few minutes to pour over the fantastic detail and eye for realism in the 3D digital sculpt photos below!

I sculpted this bust for the fine folks at Gentle Giant for their Star Wars line. I got the okay to share these. I hope you all like her. Art Direction by the always eagle-eyed Aaron White.
