Artist Elliott Quince was frustrated with the fact that some Star Wars characters received too much attention, while others not enough. He could only imagine how bitter the neglected characters must have been at not making it big, how badly they were treated on set or how cruelly their lives have panned out since the movies were released. To put the spotlight back on the unlucky group, he molded their sad portraits with plasticine, a brand of modeling clay.
"Fame and fortune awaited for the lucky few but spare a thought for those who never made it big; those forgotten extras, downtrodden walk-ons and bitter bit parts," says Quince. "Plasticine Tatooine gives those lesser-known characters a chance to air their grievances and to lift the lid on life in the Star Wars second string."
