The Archive Collection - Recreating an Artifact
“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve marveled at the incredible concept sculptures which were part of the process in creating the creatures for Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Watching early making-of specials, it was always a treat to catch a glimpse at the early designs and see how those translated to full scale. I’ll never forget seeing Phil Tippett hold up this maquette, which was called “Red Ball Jett” at the time, as he carved up the full size costume for Max Rebo with a pair of scissors! I’m so proud that we’re now able to offer a detailed and faithful replica of this amazing maquette!” – Tom Spina (Regal Robot founder).
During the production of films, the creature effects team will often dream up new and fantastic aliens and beasts by creating small scaled sculptures, called “maquettes,” to showcase their ideas. From this menagerie of maquettes, the film’s director and producer choose which characters will be brought to life for the film as costumes or puppets and what roles they will play in the story.
Dubbed “Red Ball Jett” (a reference to both the red spheres on the concept maquette sculpture and a nickname for a particular type of sneakers) by Art Director Joe Johnston, this design was chosen as part of the band in the palace of Jabba the Hutt™. Creature shop head Phil Tippett sculpted both the maquette and costume that brought this character to life.
