Regal Robot Spotlight – The Mandalorian’s “Grav Charge” Magnet

Via our friends at Regal Robot:
magnetic bombs from the Mandalorian

Our latest magnet was inspired by the Star Wars™ Disney+ series, The Mandalorian and our team began development of this piece shortly after the show debuted, but funny enough, we didn’t always know what they were called!

We loved all the great gear and Mandalorian tech throughout the series, but the detonators Mando used to break through walls, take out downed AT-STs or just get folks’ attention grabbed us right away. Din Djarin™ almost always wears three on his belt and the way they stuck to the metal plate on his belt, various walls and surfaces made us think, this might be just the thing for the next piece in our series of magnets!

With first-hand study of original production props, we designed our new magnet to be cast in solid resin with faux metal paint and a non-lighted translucent red lens. At 2 inches in diameter, the magnet is the same size as show prop that inspired it. A strong neodymium magnet allows it to hang on certain types of metal and the underside features a printed label with 2D art mimicking the detailing seen on the original prop.

Mando's magnetic bombs from the Mandalorian

But once we developed this new piece, then came the question – what do we call it? Internally, we’d been using the terms Mando’s bombs or Mando’s detonators but clearly there had to be a proper name. It took a bit of investigation and Lucasfilm confirmed: the official name of this detonator is, “The Mandalorian’s Grav Charges.”

We absolutely love that sort of detective work here at Regal Robot, and we are thrilled to be able to utilize the proper name for this bombastic (and magnetic!) item.

The Mandalorian's detonators are called Grav Charges
Did you know the detonators Mando uses are called Grav Charges?

So there’s a little “did you know?” tidbit for the day!

Regal Robot – Customized Han Carbonite Desk

Via Regal Robot:

“Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.” Who watches this scene from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and immediately thinks, “You know what Han in carbonite would be perfect for? A desk!” The answer: the Regal Robot team. If you’re a Star Wars™ fan, you’ve probably seen our Han Solo in Carbonite desk floating around the internet. One fan in particular saw this design and knew that he needed it for his home, along with a few special modifications. You can see more images and details on our Custom Han Solo in Carbonite Project Page

Regal Robot – Imperial Themed Desk!

Via our friends at Regal Robot, please click here for all the images and info! 

Never underestimate the power (or great eye for interior design) of the Dark Side. Our client, Doug, originally requested a custom desk similar to the one Emperor Palpatine uses in Revenge of the Sith, but after seeing a concept we provided for a Darth Vader inspired desk, he chose a new path. You can see the results (and many more photos) on our Imperial-Themed Desk Page. This was a very fun collaboration for our team to work on alongside Doug, so let’s hear more about the story from the man himself!

Regal Robot – Custom Life-Sized Concept Bib Fortuna™ Bust

Via our friends at Regal Robot, please click here for all the image and info! We think it’s great homage to the artwork of Ralph McQuarrie!

You can learn more about this incredible project and our client’s experience in this Client Spotlight Review he sent us!

Iconic concept artwork permeates the look of our favorite films and we were thrilled to be asked to interpret one of our favorite artist’s creature designs as a realistic, life sized character bust. An early sketch for Star Wars™: Return of the Jedi gave us an alternate look for Jabba the Hutt™’s majordomo, Bib Fortuna™.  Wearing a cowl and large hat and with a bloated visage, this creature differs substantially from the on-screen character’s look we’re all so used to.  Working with just a single sketch, we interpreted this unique vision for the character as a realistic, 1:1 creature.

Paul Bateman, a former associate and friend of the original artist created several new sketches of this specific look for the character, showing him from alternate views. We then translated that, life-sized in clay, with FX artist Casey Wong as lead sculptor. With the face shaped by hand, molds were made and the head cast in translucent flesh-toned resin, which Tom Spina then hand painted for a realistic look.

The cowl and hat were fabricated in various foam materials and the surfaces coated with flocking to give the look of a real felt hat but in extreme proportions. The cowl was aged and distressed to match the torn edges and rough look in the original inspiration sketch.

As a final touch, a pedestal table was crafted so that the client might pair the two. The table drew inspiration from concept paintings of Jabba™’s palace by the same incredible artist. We chose aged faux stone construction and a detail stripe with otherwordly-looking patterns to reflect his amazing work in this new creation.
