 Star Wars Exclusive Airborne Trooper (Mace Windu's Squad) Mini Bust at SWS!

 

StarWarsShop.com now has IN STOCK and ready to ship, the Gentle Giant Exclusive Airborne Trooper:

Hands down, this is one of the coolest looking (and obscure) clones.

The Airborne Trooper made his first appearance accompanying Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Commander Cody to the sinkholes of Utapau. Those clones had an orange deco. Here, we have Mace Windu's Squad, denoted with the Jedi Master's trademark purple coloring. These highly skilled Troopers are easily identified by their "beehive" helmets, sporting unique striping deco and a signature slim visor.

StarWarsShop is pleased to offer this latest piece sculpted by the artisans from Gentle Giant. The Mini Bust clone is a shared exclusive to between StarWarsShop and Gentle Giant, and has an ultra low edition size of only 1,250 pieces produced and sold worldwide. As clone troopers are among the most popular Mini Busts among collectors, you'll definitely want to grab this Airborne Trooper before they really, ah, er, take off.

A very cool exclusive available only at StarWarsShop.com

 GG Darth Vader Ralph McQuarrie Bronze Bust !

 

Six months before Star Wars was released in the summer of 1977, the paperback novel was released to a public that had not yet been introduced to the iconic Sith Lord, Darth Vader. On the cover of the novel was the Dark Lord’s portrait by Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. McQuarrie’s design was markedly different from that of the Vader seen on screen. This limited-edition bronze by Gentle Giant Studios commemorates McQuarrie’s original vision for Darth Vader, distinguished by cleaner lines and a distinctive glare. This solid bronze bust is strictly limited to only 100 pieces worldwide. Weighs approximately 8-10lbs. and measures 8" tall.

 GG Wins Two "The Best Of 2010" Awards at Yodasnews!

 

Best 12 Inch Figure: Boba Fett (Gentle Giant)

 

2010 clearly belonged to the ultimate Mandalorian.  The third of four Boba Fett-related items on our list is a very welcome throw-back to days of old.  If you are in your late 20s or early 30s, chances are you probably played with a vintage Kenner Boba Fett figure, and chances are you probably also wished he was about 3.5x bigger but just as cool.  Gentle Giant granted your wish—even if it’s 30 years overdue.  Add a giant vintage cardback and collector friendly bubble, and you have a whole lot of awesome in your hands. 

Best Mini-Bust: 2-1B Medical Droid (Gentle Giant) 

 

Gentle Giant produced many terrific mini-busts in 2010, but 2-1B quickly rose above the competition.  This was due in large part because Gentle Giant went the extra mile in remedying any and all quality control issues.  Because of this, 2-1B didn’t make it in time to be a Celebration V exclusive as planned, but he was more than worth the wait.  The light-up effect, the use of clear torso mixed with resin, and incredible attention to the most minute details easily made 2-1B our choice for Mini Bust of the Year.

This solid bronze bust is limited to just 100 pieces worldwide and is a StarWarsShop exclusive Weighs approximately 8-10lbs and measures 8" tall.

DEATH TROOPER DELUXE MINI BUST First Look!

 

Today we are pleased to bring you a first In Hand look at the Gentle Giant LTD Web Exclusive Death Trooper Deluxe Mini Bust. At 6.5 inches this remarkably horrifying DELUXE 1/6th scale mini-bust is crafted in heavy, high quality poly-stone, featuring detachable armor plates revealing the morbid decay of the Imperial walking dead, including the fiendish face behind the mask!

A blaster and 3 additional Interchangeable arms are included as well as several other pieces so you can really customize the look and how much gore you want to display. Using all of the pieces supplied it is possible to cover it all up, but with all the details packed into this one, you won't want to. There are literally dozens of customizable variations and we tried to show as many as we could come up with in our video presentation.

This a dream come true for a Star Wars and Zombie Fan or a fan of the Joe Schreiber's Star Wars horror novel. The details on this one are amazing and the way you can customize it really gives the collector a lot of control on how you want it to look in your display. At a run of only 1500 you could only purchase this version direct from Gentle Giant LTD's website. This version does not include the book but the general release will (but is not deluxe).

Even if you are not a fan of the genre this is still a great addition to the collection and with the ability to cover up what you don't want to see merits a spot on your shelf! Look for this to ship out early in November! Check out the video below and some still shots posted later in the week!

Star Wars  Blue Coat Hoth Han Solo Still Shots!

 

Yesterday we took a closer look at the Gentle Giant Blue Coat Hoth Han Solo Mini Bust which is shipping this week to the lucky collectors who pre-ordered him via a quick video and now we have some still shorts for our readers. Click below for the full gallery!

 

 

 

Blue Coat Hoth Han Solo Mini Bust Video!

 

Take a closer look at the Gentle Giant Blue Coat Hoth Han Solo Mini Bust which is shipping this week to the lucky collectors who pre-ordered him. This variant version was a PGM Exclusive and limited to just 650 pieces and is currently sold out.

A cool feature of this mini bust is the option to display him without the antenna attached, with them attached and in the "closed position" where it stands at 9 1/4 inches from base to tip and then a third option with both antenna fully extended where it stands at 14 inches high.

The various options on him are welcome news to collectors so he should be able to fit into almost any existing display case without any problems. The paint applications, portrait, sculpt and details on this one are all superb. We will have a more detailed review and a ton of images early next week but if you missed this one, be sure to grab the brown coat edition which is still for order at many of our sponsors which is the same exact item, just with the brown coat. A big thanks to Gentle Giant LTD for the early look at this one

CV: Gentle Giant!

 

Check our initial gallery from the Gentle Giant booth! We will have more close up galleries as the weekend goes on so keep checking back, also be sure to read on for some info we got today direct from Gentle Giant LTD.

Next up for the 12" line to be released will be the Han and Chewie. Han will be done in both head variants. They also said the Jawa would be released in both a vinyl and cloth cape and that it would be "blind box" shipping. So buyers wouldn't know which version they're getting until the package arrives. There was also talk of both a C-3P0 and R2-D2 coming but there were problems with the "metal look" in getting them cast and that the goal was also to have R2's dome click when turned so no ETA on when they will be coming out. At least 2 waves are planned with more in development.
