Earlier today I got an e-mail from the folks at Profiles in History detailing their plans for their SDCC booth space (#1605) – and it sounds like it’s a must visit at the show. They will be displaying iconic movie props created by Academy Award winner Grant McCune including the Tantive IV from Star Wars, an X-Jet from X-Men 2 and Lone Starr’s Winnebago spaceship from Spaceballs.
This is a rare opportunity to see the original props, which are being shown to promote Profiles in History’s Fall Hollywood Auction – a portion of the auction proceeds will support the Grant McCune Foundation providing scholarships to young model makers and designers.
“We are thrilled to promote McCune Masterworks at our booth at Comic-Con this year. The public debut of Princess Leia’s Blockade Runner – the first spaceship seen in the original Star Wars film – will be great for all the fans to see. In addition, we want the world to know about Grant’s legacy and the fantastic creations of McCune Masterworks. Their creativity and craftsmanship is beyond reproach – they can literally build anything that you can imagine,” says Joe Maddalena, President, CEO of Profiles in History
