February 22, 2015 – Here is something you will never see on any toy store shelf and never see available from Hasbro or Amazon: A large, custom-built Neimoidian Shuttle. But this is more than a magnificent Star Wars vehicle. It is also a playset for your 3.75″ action figures and a unique display piece for the true collector.
The dimensions are 25″L x 15″W x 18″H (63.5cmL x 38cmW x 46cmH) and the weight is about 11 pounds (5 kgs). Constructed primarily of foamcore, cardboard and a lot of creative sweat and time, the Neimoidian Shuttle features many curved edges characteristic of its beetle-like body.
The curved portions from the fuselage to the tail/crew compartment are made from paper machée clay, which is light but very durable. The tail and antenna mast are removable for ease of shipping or storage. Also called a Separatist Shuttle, the vehicle includes blue and white thruster decals that can be installed in the thruster ports. The seats are unattached, so they can be easily placed anywhere within the passenger or cargo area.
The rear of the craft features a retractable gangway. For inquiries, contact custom model-builder David Styles of Colorado by clicking HERE.
