Serenity Collectors.com Debut

Serenity Collectors.com is a new fan site devoted to gathering collectors of Firefly / Serenity memorabilia all in one place to chat about past, present, and future products. With new items coming out from Darkhorse, Diamond, Quantum Mechanix and others they looked around the net and found plenty of fan sites, but none focused on the collecting of Firefly / Serenity related merchandise.

For the launch they posted this exclusive news from Razor’s Edge Collectibles:

“ Razors’s Edge Collectibles has been on the pulse of what collectors want since they first starting selling collectibles almost 7 years ago in their Retail Store. One thing that we have been hearing for the last 2 years is, the fans of the Movie Serenity and Firefly TV Series have a thirst for quality collectibles.

Well Razor’s listened. Razor’s Edge is proud to announce a new line of Mini Busts based on the movie Serenity. Sculpted by the amazing artisans at Gentle Giant Studios and distributed by Diamond Select exclusively for Razor’s Edge Collectibles.com. These will be produced in the finest quality and will be in the same scale as other popular officially licensed Mini-Busts on the market.

As well as kicking off this new line, Razor’s has also commissioned this website to be built, so collectors of all things Serenity/Firefly related can come and chat and get the latest news on all the collectibles planned for this year and beyond. Razor’s also plans to let YOU, the fans vote on future items in their line.

More news on how to order the debut piece will be posted here in the coming weeks as well as more images as they become final. The debut piece will be limited to only 1,000 pieces produced Worldwide. We hope you like the character Mike selected to be the first."

More Gentle Giant Ltd CIV Info!

Direct from the Gentle Giant Blog:

The AT-TE Driver Accessory Pack for the EPIII Clone Trooper mini bust – We are not making another trooper, they are just accessories to change-up your white EPIII Clone busts. 

Tusken Raider and Ackbar mini bust – both will be out next year and there have been a few people noticing the price on the Tusken Raider being stated at $55 and coming to the conclusion it will be a deluxe bust with interchangeable arms, right now, that is the goal. 

Star Wars Chess Set – still in development, hopefully to be released early next year. Final price is still being determined. 

The Bust-Ups are still continuing, we’ve got 4 new series in various development stages to be released, starting early next year.

 The Life-Size Jabba is not for sale, just for display only. Jabba will make a repeat appearance at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gentle Giant Ltd Gallery 1

Gentle Giant had a great display, first we will start with what we can't show you which is the Admiral Ackbar, Sandperson, and AT-TE Driver Mini-Busts. The Ackbar and Sandperson looked like a final produst where the AT-TE still was in the development stage, the Sandperson sports a sniper rifle that looks to be about 10 inches long, very cool pose. No photos were allowed of these items. They also have a very cool Darth Maul on Sith Speeder in the same style of the Speeder Bike and photos were not allowed of that one either but it looks in scale with the Scout Trooper. There were also 3 new additions to the Classics line and they were  Queen Amidala, a Snowtrooper and  Hammerhead.

Boba Fett Maquette Exclusive!
 

Posted at GentleGiantLtd.com and StarWars.com:

Gentle Giant's Star Wars animated maquette series adds a new retro deco to one of its most striking figures -- Boba Fett! This StarWarsShop Celebration convention exclusive, which will have an edition size of just 1,000, sports Fett's color scheme as he appeared in the Droids animated series from the '80s (actually, the colors were modeled after Kenner's action figure cardback artwork -- see pic). This convention-exclusive is a great way to celebrate Fett's legacy to both the Star Wars films and to the animated series they inspired.

StarWarsShop plans to offer approximately 700 of the 1,000 edition size at Star Wars Celebration IV in the US. While Gentle Giant will not be exhibiting, the the remaining quantity will be offered up at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Details on that distribution will be announced as Cel-Europe draws closer.

Toy Fair Update, Gentle Giant Maquettes!

 

Sadly, on the Gentle Giant Clone Wars maquettes front only one new item was unveiled, a Mace Windu maquette (most likely will be an exclusive item). But the Original Trilogy animated maquette line show no signs of slowing down. Gentle Giant revealed an exclusive Yoda & R2-D2 maquette, and although no photograpy was allowed, they also showed a Han Solo maquette and a Chewbacca maquette. Check out our full Gentle Giant picture gallery here!

 

   

 

Toy Fair Update, Gentle Giant Statues!

 

Gentle Giant has plenty of other items for us to drool at and their Star Wars statue line has not been neglected. We finaly get to see a full set image of Jabba's throne with Bib Fortuna, and the Max Rebo band. Gentle Giant also had a few other statues on display, but unfortunately no photography was allowed for: a Senate Guard statue (supposed to be an exclusive), a Han Solo statue (with probably the best Harrison Ford likeness to date), a kneeling Darth Vader from The Empire Strikes Back (with light up base), and at long last an R2-D2 statue. Check out our full Gentle Giant picture gallery here!

A Deeper look into the SDCC Glow In the Dark Bust Ups!

 

In 2004 Gentle Giant Ltd released a Convention Exclusive set of Spirit of the Rebellion Bust Ups, 5000 in total were to be sold at San Diego Comic Con and Wizard World Chicago. Of those 5000, 500 would be Glow In the Dark Chase sets.

The New Gentle Giant Ltd. website is updated:

 

Well the time is here, we've gotten final approval on our Jabba the Hutt Statue. Images have been uploaded to our website product page to show Jabba, Oola and the Jawa in all their glory. There seems to be some confusion out there regarding the FREE Bib Fortuna statue (in scale with Jabba). You do not have to buy directly from Gentle Giant to get Bib. There will be redemption certificates inside both Jabba and Jabba's Band to either send into Gentle Giant Customer Service or redeem through our website. And yes, we will be able to send the Bib statue to collectors worldwide. More information will be given out as times gets closer to release.

 The Plo Koon, Ringwraith and Strider will be available in certain regions by the end of January. Domestically, they are scheduled to be at retailers and distributors by early February.

 

Also, collectors have long been asking GG if they would add the older exclusives to the site so there would be official info on them and again they listened to the collectors and are currently in the process of adding all our past convention and retailer exclusive products to the  product catalog for archival collection reference purposes.
