Han Solo quips, “One thing’s for sure — we’re all gonna be a lot thinner.” This is what you can think to yourself next time you’re choosing a book. And cue music. In your brain! When Han, Luke, Leia and Chewbacca got sent down to the recycling bin on The Death Star, they didn’t expect the walls would start closing in on them. Nor did they expect to be greeted by an angry dianoga, the creature traditionally associated with trash compactors of that day and time. Nor did they ever believe they would escape! But escape they did. And on to greatness.
These beautifully detailed compactor bookends show the entire scene, even the tentacle of the dianoga wrapped horribly around Luke as Chewy tries to hold the wall back from crushing his friend. The bookends are cast in polystone and are certain to be durable for the long run. This material is polyurethane resin mixed with powdered stone additives. It allows for the incredible detail shown in this collectible item, and it gives the bookends a porcelain-like feel. This limited addition piece of memorabilia comes with a certificate of authenticity – but with the careful attention to the scene included in these bookends, you probably won’t need it. So put it on your bookshelf and be glad you grew up with Star Wars before it was re-released.
