Since Disney acquired Lucas Films in 2012, collaboration projects have seemed to pop up in unlikely places. Perhaps there was some relaxing of the rules, as Santa Cruz Skateboards surprised us with their latest collaboration collection. Star Wars fans will not be disappointed by this collection, as the design team stays true to the film and its characters.
Illustrations derived from original film characters are featured on skateboard decks on Collector's Edition and shred-ready versions. The former comes packaged in a custom-made display box, mimicking boxes for their famous action figures, while the latter is sold like a normal skateboard deck. Additionally, they have crafted a Darth Vader Wood Inlay deck, utilizing maple, elm, and walnut, with the face of Darth Vader laser etched to the deck's bottom. Lastly, a series of cruiser boards complete the limited edition range, featuring five various sizes and designs. All of these items are currently available through Santa Cruz Skateboards dealers internationally.
