Kotobukiya ARTFX 2008 Star Wars Senate Guard ARTFX Statue - StarWars.com

An exclusive import from Japan's Kotobukiya, this 12' Statue is limited to 1,000 worldwide.

As the elite security force of Coruscant, the Senate Guard are equally adept with a blaster rifle or unarmed in combat. In addition to their work as body guards and police, the Guard would often investigate crime scenes alongside members of the Jedi Council.
These elite security officers are now captured in a compelling and timeless sculpt as a new addition to Kotobukiya's ARTFX line of collectible vinyl statues. Standing almost 12-inches tall, the ARTFX statue captures the Senate Guard poised to defend the Galactic Senate. The blue Guard's robes and Spartan-esque helmet have been reproduced in exacting detail, and the flowing cloak reveals many details of the uniform not normally seen in any of the films!
With its detailed construction, grand size, and accurate styling, this ARTFX statue is a 1/7 scale snap-fit kit that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill.
