Gentle Giant Q&A with Karl Meyer!

Posted by our friends at Jedinews.co.uk:

In our first part of the coverage of yesterday’s Gentle Giant event at Forbidden Planet we were lucky enough to spend 20 minutes with the founder and president of Gentle Giant Ltd, Karl Meyer.

We asked Karl a number of questions including some which might have appeared contentious but Karl answered them with honesty and integrity, despite suffering from a cold, and gave us more information than we could have hoped for – let’s hope he doesn’t get his knuckles wrapped too much when he gets back to base! Some of the things we talked about have to stay under wraps for the time being but as soon as we’re able to reveal all we will!

GGC's New Q&A with Gentle Giant Ltd.

 

Jewell and the team  from Gentle Giant Ltd. was kind enough to answer a ton of questions (over 30) we had about a broad spectrum of products, SDCC and more! Some of the questions collectors had were:

 

Will we see more on the Star Wars scaled helmet line at SDCC?

Are there any more convention exclusives for this year planned?

Will GG be acquiring any new licenses. If YES, will any of them be shown at SDCC?

Any plans of a new Boba Fett Mini Bust?

Has GG put further consideration into allowing or creating a fan's choice poll to let people select which mini bust/statue is produced next?


All those questions, as well as all the others can be  read by clicking here or the image below:
