Dianoga on ‘The Star Wars Show’

Our friends over at The Star Wars Show have always been great about showcasing our products as part of their set dressing.   Recently we have noticed that our convention exclusive Jumbo Dianoga has been featured on the two most recent episodes.

Last week on the right side of the screen showing of his handsome vintage-esque box:

And on this weeks episode, still on the right side of the screen, but now open and showing off his card in all it’s foam-filled glory.

Eagle eyed viewers will recognize about a dozen (or more) Gentle Giant ltd. products decorating the set in both of these episodes.  Can you spot them all?    Thanks to The Star Wars Show team for including us in their fun!

Star-Lord Joins Our Marvel Collector’s Gallery Line of Statues

Star-Lord is back and he’s leading the Guardians of the Galaxy into new adventures!

Born on Earth to an Earthling mother and alien father, Peter Quill aka Star-Lord quickly found his way to the stars, surviving among the space pirates known as Ravagers. Peter’s adventures have taken him from one end of the galaxy to the next along with his rag-tag team of misfits.

Straight from his silver-screen appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, the Star-Lord Collector’s Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted down the most minute detail, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios. Star-Lord is rocking his signature helmet, has his blaster in hand and is full of the attitude that has made him one of the notorious rogues in the galaxy… or at least in his own mind.  This 1:8 scale statue of Star-Lord is the 4th in our Marvel Collector’s Gallery statue line.  Comes numbered with certificate of authenticity.

You can pre-order the Star-Lord Collector’s Gallery here.

Ralph McQuarrie Concept Series Han Solo Mini-Bust

Ralph McQuarrie’s early designs of Han Solo display a vast difference from that of the final version as seen in Star Wars: A New Hope. Designed initially as a Lightsaber wielding, bearded Jedi Knight, this mini bust explores a fascinating look into the conceptual development of one of science fiction’s most roguish smugglers.

Designed, modeled and prototyped using top of the line 3D technology. The 1:6th scale Han Solo (McQuarrie Concept) mini bust is hand cast, hand-painted and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity.

Star Wars Jumbo Dianoga Trash Monster

When the vintage Death Star Space Station Playset was released in 1978 the designers had to take some creative license on the included trash compactor monster.    We all knew about the eye stalk and the tentacles, but the wings, the mouth full of teeth and the fin were a revelation to us kids.  Now the thing lurking in the muck of the Death Star had a “face.”

Grab your Jumbo Han, Luke, Leia and Chewbacca because now you can re-enact the pulse-pounding trash compactor scene from Star Wars: A New Hope with the convention exclusive Jumbo Dianoga Trash Monster!   Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars with part of one of the greatest playsets in the history of toys!

Scanned from the original vintage figure/accessory and reproduced in the 12” scale, Gentle Giant’s Jumbo Dianoga Trash Monster comes packed with accurate 3-color foam “trash” and in a spectacular vintage inspired full color box!
