Today: Admiral Motti Collectibles
Here at Ripley’s, we’re no strangers to unusual and intriguing artifacts. Today, we are diving into our collection from a galaxy far, far away. In honor of Richard LeParmentier’s birthday, we are taking a look at some collectibles from his iconic role as Admiral Motti! LeParmentier’s role is best remembered as the man that was force choked by Darth Vader and believe it or not, the team at Ripley’s was able to obtain LeParmentier’s original script!
Diving into the original Star Wars script uncovers early ideas that were eventually changed and even annotations made by LeParmentier himself for his role as Admiral Motti! Ripley’s team was also able to obtain a number of iconic photographs with some legendary galactic heroes. Tell us what you think about some of the early Star Wars ideas that were eventually scrapped or modified! We hope you enjoy these rare collectables, straight from the Ripley’s Vault!
