Tooling Master Hardcopy for Admiral Ackbar Action Figure
Has any minor Star Wars character experienced a more unexpected rise to fame than Admiral Ackbar? Twenty years ago he was just some weird lobster guy. Now he's a meme.

I feel like Nein Nunb is probably jealous.

This item was part of a substantial find of hardcopies representing the 65-back-wave figures. Believed to have been intended for use in the creation of tooling (i.e., the molds used for mass production), they are what prototype collectors refer to as tooling masters. As such, they are all complete and immaculately finished.
