Lucasfilm and Santa Cruz Skateboards have just unveiled a new set of character decks for their successful Star Wars line. Here are the details and images of these new decks, along with a cool video that shows the Stormtrooper deck in action, sent to us from Lucasfilm:
Santa Cruz Skateboards™ is proud to announce its collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., featuring a brand new limited edition collection of Star Wars™ skateboard decks and cruzers.
For this release, Santa Cruz has created a new offering of original illustrated graphics of classic Star Wars characters available on both decks and complete cruzer skateboards.
Four new Star Wars skateboard decks are available in either “Collector’s Edition” or “Shred Ready” models so fans can set up one to ride or keep the other in its highly collectible packaging. The “Collector’s Edition” is packaged in a vintage toy inspired blister pack and includes a laser etched numbered deck, matching the laser cut Certificate of Authenticity, and a deck art poster. The “Shred Ready” model comes in standard shrink-wrapped packaging.
The cruzer offering consists of four extremely functional shapes and sizes adorned with vintage-inspired, Santa Cruz illustrated portraits of classic Star Wars characters.
All Star Wars cruzers feature the same high quality components Santa Cruz is known for.
A standout piece in the collection is the Boba Fett™ Wood Inlay deck. The entire graphic is constructed using laser cut Mapa Burl, Rustic Burl, Walnut Burl, Padoik and Ebony wood veneers that are then individually hand assembled. These incredibly unique decks are laser serial numbered with matching numbered Certificates of Authenticity and encased in it’s own custom foil printed and embossed, foam lined display box – a must have for both Star Wars™ and Santa Cruz Skateboards™ collectors.
The Star Wars skateboard collection by Santa Cruz was released on September 6th at finer skateboard retailers around the world with additional offerings to follow in Holiday 2014 and Spring 2015. View the whole collection and purchase at
