This is a very old company who specializes in pewter products.
As a right of passage, British style, I received a Royal Selangor pewter mug for my 18th birthday. If I was actually born in England it would make more sense because 18 is the drinking age. As an American, I thought it was kind of a cool novelty. Not to get too far into the weeds, this was quite a few years ago, beer does somehow taste better out of a pewter mug. I assume the metal is adding flavor to it.
Long story short, beautiful pewter casting of a famous pop culture character. So, not only is there a manufacturing process that costs money, there is the Royal Selangor name brand mark up, as well as the fact that I assume it is a licensed product since it features Yoda.
Is it gorgeous? Yes. Is it cool? Yes. Do you need it? No. This is a fancy decoration by a really old and respected company. Think of it as buying any piece of art.
Very cool piece, in my opinion.
