K-2SO Announced as the Gentle Giant Ltd. Deluxe Holiday Mini Bust. Up For Pre-Order NOW!

This past week at San Diego Comic Con International we revealed K-2SO as our 2017 Deluxe Holiday Mini Bust.  Now we are proud to make him available for pre-order, exclusively for our 2017 Premier Guild members.   Pre-Order K-2SO before August 11th to guarantee he will be in your collection in time for the holidays.

“I’m having a happy holiday… Cassian told me I had to…”

While most of us know that the re-programed Imperial security droid K-2SO can be a bit cranky and sarcastic, he can also be festive as evidenced by the Gentle Giant Ltd. 2017 deluxe holiday Mini Bust.  This year we celebrate our 13th annual tradition of making a holiday item available to our Premier Guild members with our holiday offering: the K-2SO Holiday Deluxe Mini Bust. K-2SO is bundled up in his holiday scarf and is holding a silver ornament in the shape of the dreaded Death Star.

Built from original film models and 3D data, K-2SO’s hulking stature and intricate inner workings have all been captured in this high quality, hand painted bust that is sure to brighten up your Star Wars collection not just for the holidays, but all year long!

This K-2SO Mini Bust features a removable scarf and swappable hand holding a blaster so you can display him out of “holiday mode” if you desire.  Each limited edition piece is numbers with a matching certificate to ensure authenticity.  Made exclusively for Gentle Giant’s collector club, The Premier Guild, K-2SO is expected to sell out quickly.  Pre-order before August 11th to be guaranteed this bust will be in your collection.  K-2SO will make an excellent addition to your Star Wars collection or as a special gift this holiday season!

Be sure to pre-order by August 11th to be guaranteed to get this deluxe bust into your collection!

Daredevil Animated Statue

The Kid Without Fear…well… maybe a LITTLE bit of fear, joins the Gentle Giant Ltd. Marvel Animated Statue series.  Daredevil will be the 13th character in our popular and adorable Marvel animated statue line. The blind acrobat crime fighter is clearly still learning the ropes in this statue, inspired by the month long variant cover event that helped birth these statues.

The Daredevil Animated Statue was digitally sculpted and carefully printed on state of the art 3D Systems 3D printers. The high-resolution prints were then used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this animated collectible. Each animated statue is hand-cast, hand-painted, and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity.

Star Wars

Bossk Collectors Gallery Statue

The bounty hunter known as Bossk has been a fan favorite ever since his debut in 1980.  His popularity could not be contained to his brief appearance on the deck of the Executor in the Empire Strikes Back (and in the background of Jabba’s sail barge in Return of the Jedi).  Bossk soon started filling out his robust backstory in both the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels animated series, taking on the role of mentor to the young, orphaned Boba Fett.

The artists a Gentle Giant take you on a journey to see the moments just following the events of the death of Jabba, we find Bossk standing over the shattered throne of Jabba.  At his feet, a chain left by Jabba’s escaped prize.  What will he do next?  Pursue the rebels or look for his next bounty?

Bossk is the third statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line, celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity.

Early Bird 4-Pack Jumbo Set

40 years ago a generation of kids saw a movie that changed their lives.  When they left the theater and went to the store to find action figures from their favorite new movie they did not exist. When the holidays rolled around and the kids wanted to find their favorite heroes, villains and droids under the tree they did not exist yet.   The toy makers solution to this problem was “The Star Wars Early Bird Kit.”  Parents, desperate for anything Star Wars to wrap for their kids, were sold a large cardboard envelop that had a fold out stand, some stickers, trading cards and a promise that WHEN the figures were made, they would be the first kids to receive them.

Gentle Giant Ltd pays tribute to that classic Star Wars story 40 years later with the Star Wars JUMBO Early Bird 4-pack.    This 4 pack of action figure is a great jumping on point to the Jumbo line for new collectors as well as bringing back some earlier, harder to find figures for current Jumbo collectors.

The Early Bird Jumbo figure 4-pack will come in a retro box that looked like the original Early Bird envelop and inside will be the familiar white mailer tray with Luke Skywalker (with his double telescoping lightsaber. The first DT saber in the Jumbo line!), Princess Leia (with white vinyl cape and blue blaster) Chewbacca (with greenish Early Bird crossbow blaster) and R2-D2 (with clicking head).   Also included in the set will be larger reproductions of the stickers and a large foldout, replica display stand that will hold the “original 12” figures along with the perforated cards attached to the front.

Gentle Giant Ltd’s Jumbo line.  Just like you remember, ONLY BIGGER!
