    Hello all, :)


    Finally, i am the proud owner of a real Star Wras item !!! I just bought (2 days ago) the space slug teeth, from the ESB :love :love

    "This is a slug puppet teeth casting created for the production of the 1980 sci-fi classic Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. In the film, Han lands the Falcon inside a cavern on an asteroid to elude the Imperial TIE fighters in pursuit. Han then realizes that the cavern is actually a giant space slug and flies the ship out just before the massive jaws close. The casting was created as backup for these scenes but ultimately was not used. This jaw set is made of resin, and features numerous pointed teeth of various size throughout the upper and lower pieces. The two u-shaped pieces each measure approximately 6” x 8” (15cm x 20cm) and remain in fair condition, despite some of the smaller teeth missing the tips.
    This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity."



    Here are some pics

    That is truly awesome. Not only for being from ESB, but the prop itself is really unique.

    That is so freaking cool. Its funny though, when I think Star Wars prop, the last thing that comes to mind is teeth! Saw your thread in the junkyard, that my friend is going to be wicked awesome.

    what a great score. Loved to see a run in the JY. I would mount these like how they do Sharks teeth. I would put these right next to my Sideshow space slug enviorama
