Darth Vader Collector’s Gallery Statue Unboxing And Sneak Peek at Statue #2

Darth Vader the evil Lord of the Sith launches Gentle Giant’s brand new 1:8th scale Star Wars Collector Gallery line.  Capturing the moment in The Empire Strikes Back as he kneels before the Emperor, this Darth Vader statue is in stock and ready to ship out.

Sculpted by Gentle Giant’s master artisans, this Darth Vader statue recreates the scene from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back of Lord Vader bowing in devotion to his master, Emperor Palpatine. 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 and is limited to only 1300 pieces. This Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Darth Vader Collectors Gallery statue will be the first figure in our new series of 1:8 scaled statues, celebrating the last 36 years of the Star Wars universe.

Stay tuned to the end to see a special sneak peek at the NEXT statue in our Star Wars Collector’s Gallery line.

Justice League Dark Best Buy Exclusive Constantine PVC Figure

Oftentimes we here at Gentle Giant are contacted by other companies to make products for them.  This was the case when we were approached by  Warner Brothers Home Entertainment to help them create an exclusive PVC pack-in premium figure for the Best Buy version of their Justice League Dark animated Blu-Ray release.   The 4″ figure we helped create is the crabbiest mage in the DCU – John Constantine.

We were thrilled to be able to use our digital talents on this project and bring the DCU animated Constantine to life.
