Limited Edition SAMURAI JACK 9 Inch Maquette and Aku 12 Maquette

In 2002 the Cartoon Network released these two limited edition animation maquettes of Samurai Jack and his nemesis Aku as seen in the animated television series Samurai Jack.

Only 2,500 of them were released and today they are as rare as hens teeth.

Right now you can snap both of them up via single sale.

The Samurai Jack maquette is number 263 of 2,500. 

The Aku maquette is number 579 of 2,500.

The seller advertises that both are as new condition and that they’ve been kept flawless in a dust-free environment (the boxes they come in are in good but not perfect condition).

You’ll need to fork out $649 although the seller is willing to entertain offers.

Limited Edition STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS Ahsoka Tano with Rotta Maquette (Gentle Giant)

This is Gentle Giant’s limited edition Ahsoka Tano with Rotta Maquette based on the character as she appears in Star Wars: The Clone Wars .

Character backstory: 

Ahsoka Tano is depicted by Gentle Giant Ltd poised to strike her opponents as she safeguards Rotta (Jabba’s son); tucked away in her backpack.

Features:

  • Limited edition of only 1,300 pieces
  • Stands approximately 7.25 inches displayed on its base.

Ahsoka Tano is assigned to be Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan. She graduated to Padawan at an early age, in part, as an effort by Master Yoda to teach her new Master, Anakin Skywalker, a greater sense of responsibility, but it was also necessitated by the Clone Wars. Regardless the reason for her advancement, Ahsoka remained eager, almost overly so, to prove herself worthy of her status as a Padawan.

These are quite a rare collectible and are difficult to find. There are only two available (via Ebay) that I can find at the time of this post:
