Our website is still under construction. It has taken longer than anticipated to migrate us over to our new enterprise-level e-commerce solution. During this time sections of the website will not be available. We will be back soon with more information and more great products.

As the anticipation for the December release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi into theaters grows stronger, Gentle Giant Ltd is thrilled to officially announce that we have extended our Star Wars license to include Episode VIII – The Last Jedi. We cannot show anything we are working on quite yet, but we will be supporting the film across our lines including 1:6th scale statues, 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery statues, 1:6th scale Mini Busts and more!
We will have some great new Star Wars: The Last Jedi items to reveal soon, but for now, we just wanted to let you know that we are officially expanding further into the new Saga and wish you a happy Force Friday!
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!
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.
License: Star Wars
Item Number: 80756
Dimensions: 6.5” H x 8” W x 5.5” D
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!
License: Star Wars
Item Number: 80748
Dimensions: 6” H x 7.25” W x 14” D
The Premier Guild gift announcements are here at last! Yesterday we announced the first four of our six Premier Guild 2017 gift offerings. If you missed any of those previous announcement check out our official blog for further details. Today we are announcing the final two of our 2017 PG gifts, one this morning (this) and this one in the afternoon.
The wait is almost over!
Premier Guild 2017 sign-up starts tomorrow!
TOMORROW, Friday 3/31 at 10am PST you will be able to start ordering your membership tier of choice for the newly revamped Gentle Giant Ltd. 2017 Premier Guild on our website www.GentleGiantLtd.com
This morning’s reveal is for the new Collector’s Gallery statue and it is VERY early. It so early that we don’t even have a digital render to show you, just one of our pieces concept art for the character. We will have an updated look at the statue in a few weeks at Star Wars Celebration, but for now think of this announcement more like a character announcement rather than a concept/pose announcement. This statue will change and we will share the progress updates with you as we get further along.
Darth Revan of Star Wars: The Old Republic Collector’s Gallery Statue
Sometimes Jedi, sometimes Sith, sometimes prodigal knight, the man knows as Revan played a pivotal role in both the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War in the time of The Old Republic. While fighting in the Mandalorian Wars, young Revan donned the mask of a fallen Mandalorian warrior and became Revan. He then joined the Republic army and was soon appointed to be the Supreme Commander of their forces and was a military commander to be reckoned with. Shortly thereafter he and his friend Malik discovered a reformed Sith Empire and was turned to the dark side of the force by the new Sith Emperor, thereby becoming Darth Revan.
Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details in his mask, armor and duel lightsabers. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. This Star Wars: Darth Revan Collectors Gallery statue is part of our new series of 1:8 scaled statues, celebrating the last 40 years of the Star Wars universe.
The Premier Guild gift announcements are here at last! Starting right now we are going to announce two of the Premier Guild 2017 gift offerings each day, one in the morning (this one) and one in the afternoon for the next three days.
On Friday 3/31 you will be able to start ordering your membership tier of choice for the newly revamped Gentle Giant Ltd. 2017 Premier Guild!
But enough reading! Let’s get to the first gift announcement!!
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.
Here are the additional details describing the new Platinum tier for the Gentle Giant ltd. Premier Guild. Tomorrow we will give additional details on the Gold tier and Wednesday we will post about the Silver tier.
REMEMBER – Our current PG Membership year runs March 31st, 2016-March31, 2017. The NEW Tiered PG program will launch on March 31st.
Everything you thought you knew about the Gentle Giant Premier Guild is about to change.
Collect How YOU Want to Collect!
Welcome to the Gentle Giant 2017 Premier Guild! We do hope that you will join us for a year of fun and awesome collectibles!
What is the Gentle Giant Premiere Guild?
It’s way more than a “fan club.” It’s a place to let your voice be heard. It’s a place to get exclusive products. It’s things you get to see that no one else gets to see. It lets you get a first crack at many new items. Plus, it’s discounts, coupons, double rewards points, raffles, some surprises mailed to you AND a gift!
What is new this year?
A LOT! This year we have overhauled the Premier Guild and we are trying something new with tiered membership! We are adding new levels of membership to accommodate the different types of collectors out there. If you are a Premier Guild member just to get the con exclusives, we have a level for you, if you want everything to stay the same as you have done for the past membership years we have a level for you, if you are a hardcore Gentle Giant Ltd fan and want some super rare items we have a membership level ready for you!
We also want to make the Premier Guild more personal this year with more sneak peeks, more behind the scenes, some Q&As and even a chance for the two 2 tiers to vote on and pick a bust that we will then make!
What do I get if I join?
YOU get to decide that! Depending on what level you choose it’s a LOT! ANY level you choose you will get the cost of membership back in the form of something amazing!! You can compare the three levels of membership and their benefits from the chart below and decide what level is right for you.
Why are you changing things this year?
We know not every person collects the same way or the same things, so we wanted to give everyone options this year to collect how YOU want to collect! And we think we have come up with some pretty sweet incentives for each of the levels. But if you like things just the way they were we have a tier that keeps things the same as years past with a few added bonuses.
Do we still get discounts?
YES! And the higher the tier the better the discounts you get. Each tier of membership will receive some percentage off all their orders of non-exclusive/regular release products placed directly through the Gentle Giant Website.
Are there still going to be Premier Guild Exclusives?
Oh yes! Premier Guild members have the firsthand opportunity to purchase any exclusive that we create. This includes all distributor, international, and convention exclusives. Members also have the opportunity to pre-order and post-order San Diego Comic Con Exclusives before anyone else. While supplies last. Each tier will have an exclusive window to order the exclusives starting with platinum first, then gold then silver.
