As Star Wars fans around the world celebrate "May the 4th Be With You," the excitement surrounding the historic franchise continues to grow like Luke Skywalker’s powers. The annual event marks a celebration of all things Star Wars including that damn robot. And because we’re possessed by the same heroism that possessed Yoda (the force is with RHM strong), we created this "May the Fourth" die-cast medal to commemorate the franchise and its impact on popular culture.
This medal features a testament to the legacy of Star Wars – the starship cruiser, which has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of fans worldwide. In the middle of the starship cruiser is the emblem of the resistance, reminding us to never lose hope even when all hope is lost. The bottom of the medal ties it all together and tells us exactly what the medal is about with an inscription of the iconic words “May the Fourth.”
We wanted our medal to capture a fan holiday that is the collective passion of a special community. A grassroots phenomenon that has no official commencement year or formal dedication, like anything that arises from a shared interest. It is a pun that has surpassed its original use and become a worldwide celebration. We believe this medal design captures the true spirit of such a day.
