Announcing the Gentle Giant Ltd 2017 Star Wars Celebration #SWCO Exclusives

This week we announced both our 2017 Star Wars Celebration exclusives.  Both will be available at Star Wars Celebration at booth 3132 April 13-16th while supplies last!

See below for more details!

 

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!

Gentle Giant Ltd’s Jumbos – Just like you remember, only BIGGER!

FN-2199 Trooper Star Wars Mini-Bust

The First Order Stormtrooper FN-2199 has several nicknames.   Fans nicknamed him TR-8R after his famous first line in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.   In the Star Wars comic books, he was called “Nines.”  No matter what you call him the one thing we know about FN-2199 is that he hates defectors!

Armed with his blaster, shield and his Z6 riot control baton FN-2199 is ready to take on any unruly crowds or former friends now wielding lightsabers.

The story that began a long time ago returns, giving us the next chapter in the saga from a galaxy far, far away. Gentle Giant Ltd. is honored in bringing collectors all-new characters from Star Wars: Episode 7, The Force Awakens. Gentle Giant Ltd. announces the next of our mini busts from Star Wars: Episode 7, The Force Awakens with the First Order Stormtrooper FN-2199 as an exclusive for the 2017 Premier Guild!

First up we have our Star Wars: A New Hope  Obi-Wan Kenobi Death Star Duel Mini-Bust

Below is an image of the digital sculpt.  The final piece will be a fully painted 1:6th scale mini-bust.  We will post updated images when we have them.

For those watching Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977, “Ben” Obi-Wan Kenobi was the original “Last Jedi.”  For our 2017 Premier Guild exclusive 1:6 scale mini-bust we see Obi-Wan Kenobi, desert recluse and mentor, locked in the fateful duel from the original Star Wars film as he faces down his former padawan on the Death Star. With his hood up, lightsaber ignited and a steely determination in his eyes, Obi-Wan stands his ground against his former pupil and makes the ultimate sacrifice to help save the galaxy.

It has been 10 years since Gentle Giant Ltd. has released an Episode IV Obi-Wan bust and now the Premier Guild is proud to bring you the exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi Death Star Duel Mini Bust! Digitally sculpted by our master artisans, using actual archival footage and designs, each Obi-Wan Kenobi Death Star Duel Mini Bust is rendered using the highest quality polystone, hand painted and includes a light feature imbedded in the bust to illuminate the blade of his lightsaber.

Each piece comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity.
