Not long ago, in a galaxy just a few hours up the coast, Santa Cruz Skateboards released a collaboration series of intergalactic proportions. With a licensing deal bigger than Wookiee nuts, Santa Cruz has officially stepped on board with Lucasfilm to create original illustrations of classic Star Wars characters. The Santa Cruz Star Wars Collection will be available as limited edition, specially packaged collector’s boards as well as shred ready decks and cruzer completes, beginning Monday March 3rd, 2014 at 9AM (PST).
Skate Warehouse will be 1 of only 8 premier online retailers to carry this collection!
Santa Cruz is responsible for some of the most iconic graphics in skateboarding history. Lucasfilm is responsible for some of the most iconic science fiction films in popular culture. The Santa Cruz Star Wars Collection is sure to elicit squeals of fanatic joy from Santa Cruz Skateboards collectors and Star Wars fans alike.
Santa Cruz Star Wars Collectible Decks
The highly limited Santa Cruz Star Wars “Collector’s Edition” Boards retail for $120 and are packaged in a vintage toy style blister pack. This pack includes the laser-etched numbered deck, a matching laser cut Certificate of Authenticity, and a large deck art poster. There are four characters available in the set: Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Han Solo and Slave Leia. There will be less than 2500 of each in the world, so these collector’s edition boards are not to be shredded, young man. Leave your father’s toy collection alone and go play outside with your skater boarder friends.
The “Shred Ready” models are unnumbered, retail at $80, and come in standard shrink-wrapped packaging for ease of destruction. No force necessary. Some assembly required.
Collectible Darth Vader Inlay Deck
There is a fifth collector’s edition deck that really stands out in this collaboration: the Darth Vader Wood Inlay Deck. Retailing at $425, there will be very few of these available on planet Earth. The entire graphic is constructed using laser cut Maple, Elm and Walnut Burl wood veneers that are then individually hand assembled. These incredibly unique and intricate decks are laser serial numbered with matching Certificates of Authenticity. They’re encased in their own custom foil printed and embossed, foam-lined display box. The Darth Vader Inlay is a must have for both Star Wars and Santa Cruz Skateboards collectors.
Santa Cruz Star Wars Cruzer Completes
The Santa Cruz Star Wars Cruzer Completes consist of five extremely functional shapes and sizes adorned with vintage-inspired Santa Cruz illustrated portraits of some of your favorite Star Wars characters. All Star Wars cruzers are equipped with high quality components. The wheels are special edition, retro-style Star Wars 78a cruiser wheels that are unique to each cruzer.
The Yoda (10″ x 28.5″), Chewbacca (10″ x 35″) & Boba Fett (8.5″ x 31″) Cruzers come equipped with Bullet Trucks and 66mm/78a Star Wars Wheels.
