This item was way out of my range - close to $2000 (crappy canadian exchange, taxes and customs) But what Star Wars fan can resist having a lifesize Han Solo in Carbonite in their living room ? LOL. I KNEW I just HAD to have him.

Lucky for me, a TV show I was doing the opening fx for went WAY over budget and because it's airdate premier was 2 days away, we had to work a 32 hour shift which just happened to amount to the total cost of the prop ! Had I not been in overtime hell, I would not have this awesomeness in my collection.

Yoda's Illusive's Maquettes was the first item that got me hooked into high end collectibles. Their high quality and reasonable prices were very affordable (until the Rancor that is) ... Why / how does a company jump from $200 price range one year to $700 the year after for the same size and quality product ? Beats me!

Illusive has since lost their Star Wars licence and no longer produces Maquettes :( Sad Sad
