Lawrence Noble, the artist who sculpted the famous bronze Yoda Fountain in Presidio (where Lucasfilm has an office), San Francisco, has just created the Darth Vader bronze sculpture.
If you got $18,000, you too can have a 4 ft tall, 150 lb Sith Lord in bronze for your living room:
The inspiration for this Vader bronze, which was modeled after the Dark Lord's appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, ironically came from a source usually associated with the Star Wars prequels -- the planet Coruscant. "For me, the idea was to do the kind of statue we would see in honor and tribute to Lord Vader on the planet of Coruscant," says Noble. "So if you were walking around the city on Coruscant and saw a statue of Darth Vader, it would hopefully be something along the lines of what we produced."
