K-2SO Announced as the Gentle Giant Ltd. Deluxe Holiday Mini Bust. Up For Pre-Order NOW!

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!

Be sure to pre-order by August 11th to be guaranteed to get this deluxe bust into your collection!

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.

License: Star Wars
Item Number: 
80756

UPC:  814176022380
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!

Gentle Giant Ltd. Premier Guild 2017 Gift Announcement #5 – PG Sign-up starts 3/31!

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.

Gentle Giant Ltd. Premier Guild 2017 Gift Announcement #1

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.
