Price Guides June Update!

 

The GentleGiantCollectors.com Price Guides have been updated for the start of Summer! There has been a decent amount of fluctuation from the last update. There have been some great deals on many items for those that have been keeping a watch on the secondary market! On the other hand, some of the harder to find items (even from retired lines) are holding their value or increasing it. 

 

For readers not familiar with our guides, we process them manually to ensure they are accurate.  The Price Guide team looks at completed ebay auctions, ebay stores, online retailers who sell in the secondary market, yahoo auctions, popular message board sale sections, as well as other places on the web to determine the true value of each piece on the secondary market.  It is both a useful tool if you are looking to fill a hole in your collection, or if you have the misfortune of having to part with one of your pieces and need to have an idea what you can expect it to sell for.   Our very popular Image Guides are also integrated into the section.

Welcome FanboyCollectibles.com!

FanboyCollectibles.com is a new website that caters to collectors because it’s run by collectors. We have been collecting everything from comic books to statues to prop replicas to action figures to original comic art for close to thirty years now. So when we decided to open a business of our own, we went with what we know.

What we know is what’s most important to you the collector. You want your items packed securely, you want them shipped quickly and when you have a question, you want to talk to someone in a timely manner, not get automated responses. Our goal is to achieve all of that and more. Anyone can put up a website and make a sale. The key to being successful is repeat business. The only way we can get you to come back is to do right by you the first time and every time you deal with Fanboy Collectibles.

We are a direct retailer with Sideshow Collectibles and also carry products from all of the companies you know and some you may want to know about:

• Bowen Designs, • Gentle Giant, • Hot Toys, • Kotobukiya, • DC Direct, • ARH Studios
• Hollywood Collectibles and many others

Lastly, we know one more thing that all collectors love, something free. As part of our Grand Opening, we are having a raffle for all our new customers. Purchase any item from us between now and the end of July and you’re entered. Since everyone has different tastes, we’re giving the winner a choice:

• Sideshow's The Circle is Now Complete - Obi-Wan vs. Darth Vader faux bronze diorama (limited to 50 pieces).
• Sideshow's Shades of Mordor - Ringwraith Diorama faux bronze diorama (limited to 35 pieces).
• Bowen Designs' White Queen modern exclusive diamond variant (will be limited, but total number of pieces has yet to be revealed).

You win and you pick which one you want...and we’ll take care of the shipping charge too.
Whether it’s at our website, or if you’re in the neighborhood and want to walk-in and pick something up (we are located in Newtown, CT - 1 block off of I-84, exit 9), feel free to stop by
Fanboy Collectibles and share our obsession with collecting

Gentle Giant Halo Arbiter Review!

It has been a long time since we’ve been able to look at a Halo offering from Gentle Giant. The original piece was the Master Chief mini bust (repainted also in Red, Blue, and Steel), followed by a “Classic” scale Master Chief (and pink repaint) as San Diego Comic Con 2009 Exclusives. We got our first glimpse of the Arbiter mini bust back in February 2008, over 2 years ago.

The Arbiter, former enemy of Master Chief and humanity, switched sides in the war between humans and the Covenant when he found out that the Covenant leadership had the intention of exterminating his species, the Elites. With the Arbiter at his side, the Chief was able to push forward and defeat their common enemies, making the Earth safe once again. Most fans of the Halo series see the Arbiter as the second most popular and important character in Halo 3, due to his efforts in the war, and the fact that player 2 in co-op Campaign games plays as him. So was the wait for the mini bust worth it? Read on to find out!

Gentle Giant's Holiday Mini Bust Early Info!

An interesting tidbit was posted in our forums, by Gentle Giant LTD staffer VinylSquirrel, about the 2010 Holiday Mini Bust. When asked in the "Ask GG" section if the new Holiday piece was being worked on, here was her reply::

"Yes, we know what it will be...and will hopefully unveil it in either June/July. Maybe a little sooner. But I suspect we will take orders around that time so we can have her in hands on-time this year!"

While we don't 100% know if the holiday piece will be Star Wars themed or not, we can make a pretty good guess that it will be based on past holiday items. The forums are a buzz as to who SHE could be. A holiday take on the Slave Leia? Leia Bespin? Padme? Oola? Or maybe something we have never seen? Either way it sounds like we may see her at SDCC or C5!

Discuss it here!

 

First Look at the Animated Bly Mini Bust!

Here is a first look at the Gentle Giant Mini Bust from the Animated Clone Wars series, GG LTD presents Commander Bly Mini Bust. Bly comes with a removable visor that will be able to be displayed on the figures helmet (up or down). You can see this mini bust in person at the upcoming C2E2 convention in Chicago at AFX's booth, #767. (click for larger view)

Stephen J. Sansweet (Director of Content Management and Head of Fan Relations at Lucasfilm and Mega Collector) has been inducted into the GGC Hall Of Fame for 2009 and will be receiving one of only 14 Anvil Awards that were made in-house at Gentle Giant Studios. The Anvil Awards are a yearly celebration for collectors of Gentle Giant products and held at GentleGiantCollectors.com in partnership with Gentle Giant LTD.

We got a hold of Mr.Sansweet yesterday while he was in Dusseldorf, Germany where the Official German Star Wars Fan Club has just wrapped up Jedi-Con 2010 to let him know about the honor and he had this to share:

 

"I am floored and truly honored to be selected for a GGC Anvil Award. I have been both a collector of and a cheerleader for Gentle Giant from the start. I feel lucky to have gotten to know and work with many of the great people there, who share a passion for great sci-fi and fantasy collectibles and a commitment to quality. I'll display the award proudly amidst my GG Star Wars pieces."

Steve and the other winners of the the awards will be receiving them in the next few weeks along with their certificates. Look for more information on the 2010 Anvils and how you can be entered to win one after the summer conventions this year! Other winners included Karl Meyer (President of Gentle Giant Studios), the LucasFilm Licensing Approval Department, and many longtime collectors and staff members at GentleGiantCollectors.com.

GGC Exclusive Sneak Peek of the Star Wars and Harry Potter 2010 PG Gift Offerings!

 

GG is finishing up the sculpts for the PG Gifts for 2010.  Next week, they hope to officially announce the 2010 membership information, along with painted images of the gifts.  Members will have a choice of 3 gifts for 2010 and an option to purchase the other 2.  Two Star Wars and 1 Harry Potter option. 

Clone Wars Commander Fox - animated version.  We went with the Animated Version as we found the design of the Rex did not differentiate too much from the Animated Style.  Also, with all the success of the Animated Series, we really want to support this series.  Look for more Clone Wars Animated style mini busts in 2010!

 

 

Commander Faie!   He is being painted right now!  I hope you all enjoy him as he will make a great addition to anyone's collections! 

 

Filch with Mrs. Norris.   Note that Filch will be holding a lantern, in which I am hoping to have a light-up feature like Hagrids.  I think we really captured the likeness of Filch.
Enjoy!

It is possible for you to win in multiple categories. The winners will receive some very cool one of a kind collectibles (to be announced shortly) & a certificate for the category in which you won in signed by the President of Gentle Giant LTD, the Senior Manager of Product Development at Gentle Giant LTD, and the Admin and Owner of Gentle Giant Collectors.

The team from Gentle Giant Ltd. was again kind enough to answer a bunch of questions our readers and members had. Some things that were answered were:

 

When will the Yak Face Mini Bust be shipped for Domestic and International Members?

Does GG ever discuss secondary market value?

How has the biggest collection amoung GG employees?

Will the Jabba Bookends be in static poses or magnetic?

Can we expect more Harry Potter Mini Bust announcements before Xmas or will we have to wait for the New Year?

Will GG be making any Toy Story maquettes?

All these questions, and many more, can be read by clicking here or the image below. We also sent along a spreadsheet of upcoming items to GG and should have a updated list of edition sizes and release dates later in the week!

Happy 3rd Anniversary Gentle Giant Collectors!
 

It's hard to believe it has been three years since we first went online, but earlier in the week, on September 22, 2009, Gentle Giant Collectors.com turned three years old.

Over the last three years , we have built up a massive Image Guide of nearly every single item Gentle Giant Ltd has produced. We add to the guide weekly and we have seen over two dozen of the products on our Most Wanted list get made by Gentle Giant since we launched it in 2007.

We have over 15,000 products registered in our registry and have over 250,000 messages posted at our message boards! In 2009, we also became the official home of the Gentle Giant Collection of the Month. We have expanded our very popular Price Guides and have added improvements to our registy that allows collectors to not only keep track of each item and edition number but also download and export it, and also see a current market value of what the collection is worth!

Be sure to check out the GGC forums where we will be giving away some very cool items next week to our readers thanks to Gentle Giant LTD and our sponsors!
