Spider-Man Mark IV Suit Mini Bust

The Spider-Armor Mark IV is Peter Parker’s most powerful and technologically advanced costume to date.  Developed by Spider-Man at Parker Industries this new spider-suit is made of light-weight, metallic liquid nano-technology, making it bullet-proof, can deflect lasers at close range, and can absorb the impact of falling several stories, leaving whoever is in the suit unharmed.  The suit is also heat resistance to the point where Spider-Man can battle the Human Torch without fear of injury!

Digitally sculpted by the master artisans at Gentle Giant Ltd., Spider-man Mark IV Suit mini bust features a metallic paint job with eyes and a spider emblem that seem to glow.  Crafted using only the highest quality polystone, each limited-edition hand-painted mini bust comes individually numbered and is packed with a matching certificate of authenticity.

Rocket and Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2) Collectors Gallery Statue

Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy.  Rocket learns this the hard way when he double crosses The Sovereign and steals the very thing he is supposed to be guarding, thereby bringing the entire Sovereign fleet down on the Guardians of the Galaxy!

From the blockbuster summer movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 come Gentle Giant Ltd.’s Rocket and Groot Collector’s Gallery Statue.  This “trash panda” and his best friend have been digitally sculpted, down the minutest detail, by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios, and hand-painted for film accuracy. Rocket is armed with two guns while tiny Groot is perched on his shoulder wearing his little Reaver coat. Now you can own your own 1:8 scale statue of everyone’s favorite “triangle-faced monkey” Rocket and his pal Groot! The Rocket and Groot Collector’s Gallery Statue is the 5th piece in our Marvel Collector’s Gallery statue line and fits perfectly with our recently solicited Starlord Collector’s Gallery Statue from the same film. Each Collector’s Gallery statue comes hand numbered with certificate of authenticity.

Thor (Ragnarok) Collectors Gallery

Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and Avengers team-member the Hulk! Thor finds himself without his hammer or his powers and a pawn of the Grandmaster and his games.  Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying all of Asguard.

Straight from his silver-screen appearance in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok feature film, the Thor Collector’s Gallery Statue has been digitally sculpted down the minutest detail, and hand-painted by the amazing artisans of Gentle Giant Studios. Thor is decked out in his gladiator arena armor with his helmet, cape and double swords and features a stunning likeness to actor Chris Hemsworth.  This 1:8 scale statue of Thor is the 6th in our Marvel Collector’s Gallery statue line.  You can display this piece on its own or with our upcoming gladiator Hulk Collector’s Gallery statue. The statue comes with a hand numbered with certificate of authenticity.

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.

Price: $64.99

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!

AMC’S “THE WALKING DEAD” DEBUTS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH AT 9:00PM ET/PT

EAT YOUR HEART OUT THIS VALENTINE’S DAY WEEKEND…

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED MID-SEASON SEVEN PREMIERE OF AMC’S “THE WALKING DEAD” DEBUTS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH AT 9:00PM ET/PT

Check out all of the in-stock The Walking Dead items at gentlegiantltd.com!

The highly anticipated mid-season seven premiere of the #1 show in all of television among adults 18-49, AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” launches Sunday, February 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.  On the debut episode, “Rock in the Road,” Rick and the group are led to a new community where they are introduced to its inhabitants and ruler. A familiar face resurfaces.

The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.

Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.

We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust.  Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan.  But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” reigns as television’s most watched drama for Adults 18-49. “The Walking Dead” tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.  The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

 

Following the mid-season premiere episode, viewers can catch an all new episode of the live after-show, “Talking Dead,” featuring series star, Khary Payton and Executive Producer, Greg Nicotero at 10:13 p.m. ET/PT.
