More than four decades ago, the first Star Wars film, A New Hope, made its theatrical debut. Defying all expectations, it smashed all box-office records and changed the face of cinema forever. Over the years, Star Wars has become a popular, worldwide cultural phenomenon, having spawned one of the most successful blockbuster franchises of all time and generated billions of dollars in revenue. The catchphrase ‘May the Fourth Be With You’, which started out as a pun shared warmly among fans, has since evolved into an annual tradition to commemorate the beloved franchise.
In collaboration with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, Royal Selangor celebrates this milestone in cinematic history with the launch of a gilded T-70 X-Wing Starfighter replica coated in 24K gold. The coating brings the impressive details of the 1/72 X-Wing into sharper relief, allowing one to relive nostalgic memories of the Starfighter in the film. Propped on an angled stand in its every-ready-to-battle ‘X’ attack configuration, the replica is limited to only 300 individually numbered pieces worldwide.
If you, however, are a fan of the Galactic Empire (how could you!), Royal Selangor will also be introducing a Darth Vader keychain that features the Sith Lord’s iconic helmet soon.
The Gilt X-Wing Starfighter replica and Darth Vader keychain are available at select Royal Selangor retail stores for a limited time only. See here for more.
