They made 13 of these beauties for the film. It is a hybrid of two different designs I had done for the throne, and the sculptors outdid themselves with this one. This prop looked fantastic in person, and was well enough made that one could have it in ones living room as a piece of furniture, and it would hold up to daily use. When I saw these gilded treasures in person, my head almost exploded, and I became obsessed with the ridiculous idea of trying to acquire one.
Guy Dias went to bat for me to try and procure one by explaining that one of his artists had designed it, and was wondering if it might be possible, after the film was over, and all the dust had settled, if it may be possible to buy one, or perhaps commision one to be made out of the molds.
He was merely told by a representative of LucasFilm these four very words: "No way in hell".
I don't know where all 13 of these thrones are, but I doubt if they are going to any good use. I imagine that they share the fate of the Ark of the Covenant at the end of the first Indy film. Boxed, numbered, and rotting in a massive warehouse north of San Francisco.
If anyone knows how I can acquire one of these, please contact me. I can be very discreet.
