Discovered by Master Plo Koon, Ahsoka Tano was raised in the Jedi Temple. Promoted to the rank of Padawan at an early age, she was then assigned an apprenticeship under Anakin Skywalker. Gaining Anakin's respect after a dangerous mission to destroy a Separatist shield generator, Ahsoka accompanied the Jedi Knight on a quest to rescue Jabba the Hutt's kidnapped son Rotta. Held in the dungeons of an abandoned B'omarr monastery, the infant Huttlet was successfully recovered and returned to Jabba.
Grateful for their bravery Jabba the Hutt signed a treaty with the Republic, allowing clone forces access to his hyperspace routes throughout the Outer Rim.
When The Clone Wars plot was announced and revealed that Jabba The Hutt’s son was kidnapped, many became worried about how trivial the film was going to be overall. To be honest, it was a valid concern. Kidnapping has become part of the Jedi’s business now? Despite the initial fears, this part of the plot line actually became an interesting and important part of the film to help explain why Jabba The Hutt developed such a distaste for Jedi, like Luke Skywalker in particular. (And this was all based on the Sith's deception, a lie, and not the true acts of the Jedi.) Ahsoka Tano, a new Togruta character introduced in the film, played a viable role in the transportation of this stinky Huttlet and through her adventurous travels became another favorite character in The Clone Wars film. Gentle Giant Ltd. captures Ahsoka Tano (With Rotta) beautifully in their popular Maquettes line and we think it’s one of the finest produced to date.
The sculpt for the Ahsoka Tano (With Rotta) Maquette is quite perfect in every way. Not only have they mastered her likeness perfectly well, but they have also captured her affect and mannerisms brilliantly. The facial features, patterns and overall shape of her physique is just astounding. Ahsoka approaches things in a crouching manner with her lightsaber at her side (or held in her hand in that unique position) and that’s exactly what is represented here in this high end collectible. The sculpt of Ashoka With Rotta is truly flawless. And what makes the piece even better is an immaculate paint job which brings to the table the character and personality that makes her such an enjoyable Star Wars character. It takes time to configure a three-dimensional rendering of a character on a two-dimensional screen, but more difficult to apply to a statue. But Gentle Giant Ltd. has effortlessly achieved this brilliantly. Have no fears because Gentle Giant Ltd.’s artists have done a magnificent job on the Maquette and it’s quite amazing to see how realistic it looks, even if it’s based on an animated 3D model.
Status: This highly detailed maquette, based on the original Lucasfilm costumes and props, was sculpted and painted by Gentle Giant Ltd. We hope you enjoy it.
